I am an Aerospace Engineer…

December 30, 2011 1 comment

I always felt the current generation lags little in aspiring career in what they choose and strive hard to reach that extra mile and touch the sky limits of Engineering. Though not coming from a premier institute of Engineering unlike NITs or IITs, where the lads graduate with flying colors, KCT and its grads did had that passion. After graduation, many of my collegiate(s) wanted to purse higher studies-some in India and many abroad. Doing higher education abroad was a costly affair for my family that I stopped in just reading materials for GRE which was helpful for me to clear some of the entry level exams conducted by companies. Also writing a GATE exam was boring for me. I am proud of saying that my Engineering degree in Electrical and Electronics has been useful to shine well in my career. But many times I was cornered to situations of whether career or money is important in life. A decision making in those situations had inhibited my futher thinking and has led to lot of diversions in life.

Watching the flights tearing the sky wasn’t a peculiar activity for kids and is the same case with me. After I grew up those dreams became reality when I boarded into an aircraft…the curiosity rose even higher when I got the opportunity to work on few aerospace projects in Wipro. My experience with a service company had a balance between its pros and cons, though could not refrain my decision towards joining it 7 years before. Being in an aerospace company now feels me proud when I hear from peers that my designs are running successfully in aircrafts. I strongly adhere to the statement “Learning is a continuous process”…and I can shout aloud and say “I am an aerospace Engineer”….yes I continue to put my ideas for products which goes into any of those Airbus, Boeing or Bombardier flights….

Greatness is all around us..


 I’d like to bring the famous saying here:

‘As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.’

These high flying statements of Gandhi are meant to encourage us to do great things with our lives.

In a recent post from Zen Habits, one of my favorite blogs, writes about finding greatness in oneself. He says “You learn to see greatness when you happen upon it, and that is a true gift. It’s not just in famous people, but in commoners like us. You realize that you’re always in the presence of greatness … because the greatness is within you

What a commendable message?

This is true in my life and of course in all of us….here are few instances of how I nurture for greatness…

When I shatter the routine and enjoy the time with astute people in Electronics who urge me to a do better tomorrow than today. A recent incident that took place when my clueless mind was dwelling to solve an EMI (ElectroMagnetic interference) issue for one of my product designs. I brimmed with hope when I approached an IISc professor who analyzed the failure in all angles through his technical skills and identified the root cause.

When I lost myself in few technical conferences on “Aerospace domain and its design challenges (EMI/EMC)” by eminent Engineers from HAL,ISRO and DRDO.

When my juniors help me to refresh basic electronics and debate on them.

When my managers give savvy methods to track the SPI/CPI for a project.

When I submerge myself in reading great blogs from Zen Habits,men with pens and many more

Have you felt or foster the greatness like me?

My passion for “Aerospace”
