E. Praveen Kumar, Scientific Officer of Madras Atomic Power Station, Kalpakkam, gave a guest lecture on ‘Career opportunities in research’ at Vignan’s Lara institute of Technology & Science at Vadlamudi on Friday.

On the occasion, he said students belonging to rural engineering colleges had ample opportunities for research in premier institutions like the NITs and IITs. For doing research in government research organisations like the DRDO, ISRO, and NPCL, students must have fundamental knowledge in electronics and networks analysis, which could be acquired through books and various other means. Mr. Kumar shared his experience of the interview he had faced at ISRO and explained how to prepare for an interview and the ways to answer.
