There is a great transition from College to the Corporate World, but the kind of discipline at NMREC towards the punctuality, regularity and promptness for the given task and even the dress code helped us to be a professional, developing a good affiliation at the work place and to build the firm foundation with a great confidence for a career. The special campus life at NMREC made us to easily get adapted to the professional work culture.
Naveen Jaiswal Singh.R, ME Design Engineer, Hyundai.
I am proud to be an NMRian. I don’t know what the life was and how to live a life in a systematic and dignified way, then the college i.e. “Nalla Malla Reddy engineering college” opened the new doors to my life where college showed me many routes to choose but the correct path was guided by my lecturers where each and every moment they used to guide us and tell every time the way to success. In terms, college chairman helped in every aspect not only in studies but also in sports he used to show a goal to us and used to tell what and why goals are to be achieved and how to achieve them. My college made me stand on my own legs and my heartfelt thanks to my chairman and to all my professors to make me stand and face the brightening world, achieve more goals and success in my life.

Hi, I am Upender Surabhi. I completed my engineering in the stream of ECE from NMREC. It gives me great pleasure to describe myself and share my experience with the college that helped me in shaping my career.My father was a farmer and since childhood I learned to work hard, helping my parents with their daily work during school days. Though my parents had studied till 5th Standard, they well understood the value of education and their only dream was to give the right education to their children.lt was back in 2008 when I just finished my intermediate education in a local junior college with 97.7% and decided to pursue engineering studies.
Before joining in engineering college, I still remember the day when I asked a teacher in a computer institute how to power on a computer.My elder brother who was a government school teacher helped me to find an engineering college in Hyderabad and finally I got admission in Nalla Malla Reddy Engineering College. The college helped me to understand how practical learning is more important than theoretical learning and how it is important, especially for an engineering student. The excellent lab and library facilities available in the college enabled me to understand basics and boost innovative thinking. Though I was good at academics, the college helped me to identify my areas of improvement and finally I understood the importance of communications skills. I used to regularly go to the reading room available in the college with all English, Telugu newspapers and different technical magazines. This practice helped me to improve my communication skills, build vocabulary and understand technology trends happening in the tech industry.The best part was faculty were very supportive,provided best guidance and almost everything was available in terms of learning and sports. College really helped to better understand me and unleash my potential to a greater extent. Soon after completing my engineering, I got a Job Offer in Nokia Networks as a software R&D engineer through college referral drive. I believe it is very important for an engineering student to gain practical knowledge by participating in technical seminars and workshops and be well aware of the technology changes happening in their field of interest. Currently, I am working as a senior software engineer for a Tech Company in San Francisco Bay Area, California.
I really feel grateful to the college that helped me to put myself in the current position.

A Word On Data Science: (Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)
I’m Bharath Narla, an alumnus of NMREC from 2011 batch. I have done my B.tech in the stream of ECE. Later, I went on to pursue PG Diploma in Banking and worked as a banker for 3 years. I was introduced to handling data in my banking days. Part of my job was to send reports to regulators such as RBI and Enforcement Directorate. During this time, I understood the power of decision making using the insights from data. As a Data Scientist, now I closely work with clients on consulting problems to find solutions using machine learning techniques. We have worked on problem statements like generating trading signals for a hedge fund, optimizing coal procurement plan for largest metal manufacturer in India, finding patterns to identify onset of critical illness for a health care start-up. Currently I’m exploring the financial domain to make use of the data science techniques to help solve the problems.
What is data science?
Let us say you are newly recruited by a bank and your job is in the loan processing department. You are responsible for accepting or rejecting the loan applications. Think about what all factors of a customer would you consider, deciding to accept or reject a loan. You would then look, if all the data that you need is available in the application form and take the help of your seniors or your training to make your decisions. Even after considering all this information, how sure are you about the decision? It is still not better than a coin toss.
So, what can you do and how does the data science help you? Go back to your seniors and ask them for the following data, all the records of applications processed both accepted and rejected records. Once the data is arranged in structured format, make use of machine learning algorithms to understand from the past data about the factors influencing the application status. Also, you get to know how good the performance of the algorithm is. If the results are satisfactory, make use of this algorithm to decide the status of applications. Based on model performance you now know how sure you are about each decision or how correct is it.
Data Science is all about finding patterns from your past data and assume that the future data will follow the same distribution and make use of the insights to decide about the future.
How does it work?
In the above example, all the factors you collected to make the decision is ‘x’ and the outcome or the decision is ‘y’. What machine learning algorithms try to do is, to find a function f(x) that best describes they. One of the basic functions we use is y =mx -I- c. You guessed it right! It’s a line equation, we try to fit a line assuming the x and y are linearly related and check how good that line can explain the relationship. Once the results are satisfactory, to make our predictions, we pass the values of V to the function and the point estimate on the line is our prediction.
Similarly, there are numerous algorithms that try to fit various functions either linear or nonlinear and the way they do it, how fast they do it and how good they do it is the measure of performance of an algorithm. No single algorithm works best on all kinds of data and it the responsibility of adata scientist to understand the data and conduct several experiments to find a suitable algorithm to get the best results.
The class of problem statement explained is called supervised learning, where you know, what are you trying to find the function for, in this case deciding weather to give a loan or not. There are other class of problems called unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning and recommender systems. Why is it popular now?
As I discussed earlier, fitting a line is still a big deal in the data science industry, in fact one of the industry experts said, you are 95% data scientist if you know how to fit a line between x and y. So, if the functions are so basic what’s new about it?
It is not about the algorithms that is new but the way they are used. Now a days collecting, storing and processing the data is much easier and cheaper in the past. As the organisations piled up the data, they started investing in finding patterns. Reduced computing costs have had a major impact in the data science industry. People started coding up the algorithms and created libraries of code bases once the data started to flowing in.
What’s the future?
With the advancements in technology to collect, store and process data, industry in figuring out, processing large volumes of data, complicated data and quick ways of processing the it. And the term coined to this phenomenon is called the Artificial Intelligence.
Currently there are algorithms that can do a job better than a human, like identifying cancer by studying the patient’s mammogram report. Present day systems do a better job than a panel of doctors!
How can you get involved?
Most of the times that I have observed, it is not about who has the best technical knowledge, it is all about how well you can apply it in solving real world problems. What might help is to, either to find a problem statement and try solving it using various techniques or trying to understand how each technique that you are learning can be used for problem solving. And I find this is what is missing in our learning.
Finally, apiece of advice from my side for efficient learning:
Explore different domains, understand various problem statements, build interest in one of them and start working towards solving it, during this process you will learn about various techniques even if they help or not in solving your problem.
For all that you are learning, put it in a real world scenario, come with use cases of where all it helped solving the problems and understand why it worked there.

What is great about studying in Germany??
Some years ago, a dream for most of the students is either USA or UK. But, my sister went to Germany to pursue her Post Doctoral Research. Greatly inspired by her I chose Germany as my destination for doing my masters. Preparations had begun right from the time I was studying engineering at Nalla Malla Reddy Engineering College.
As I reached here I understood many things about Germany, which offers 320 + international masters degree programmes in various fields and offered in English for free of cost (with little fees).Well, in the university in which I am studying there are students from more than 30 nationalities with more than 5000 students.
Moreover, the very first automobile in the world to the latest BMW I8 is from Germany, which shows that it is a hub of automobiles and mechanical engineering. So, if you dream to do your masters especially in mechanical engineering or automobiles, I could say Germany is the best option.
My stay in Germany from a past couple of months turned out to be a most interesting learning experience. My bachelors study at NMREC has given me the platform for learning all the basics and stood supporting all the time. Thank you NMREC!!
Germany-The land of Ideas
A word from the other side of the world … It is important to note that engineering and medicine are the two most important streams in India where you land on the buck even if you screw up a little. Almost everybody is either a doctor or an engineer. And to satisfy the engineers dreams there are tons of IT companies around. Graduate from college, get a job and earn some money. This is how we usually look at things when we are doing our under graduation. But one important fact which we usually miss out on is “how important we actually are?”. Irrespective of your answer to that question, you will end up getting a job. If not soon, then sometime later. Now the answer to that question is how would you look at things ?. Remember, it is out my own personal experience I have learned that the more skilled you are, the more you are worth. You do not have to be skilled in everything you do. Be skilled in at least one thing that you learn each year during your under graduation. For the matter of fact, programmers in C are always payed twice the amount when compared to programmers in Java or other application level languages. All you need to do before you graduate is be very good at C, and that does not happen very easily. It needs a lot of practice and patience dealing with “Segmentation faults”. In the west, there is a clear distinction between the salaries paid to the employees depending on the kind of work they do. Core systems jobs (again dealing with C, C++) are twice the worth of a web UI designer job. If you are really planning on getting a job which is your “worth” then finding the right job should not be difficult. Therefore it is very important to make sure your skills are fine tuned by the time you graduate, because that is the ultimate factor which will decide how much you are going to get paid on your first job. And all you need to do is 4 things – 1.Learn one programming language (C > C++ > Java). 2.Learn one scripting language (Perl preferably, Python also will do). & 3.Learn one database query language (MySQL, Oracle g/i, etc – no one really cares which one as long as you have the concepts correct). 4.Know how to use all the above 3 together. Considering that you have 4 years in undergrad, doing one each year should not be difficult. You will only find your worth after the 4 years if you stick to the above 4 points. Getting a job is not important, getting the “right” job is important. And your resume is your advertisement to the company, the better the advertisement the better the outcome. Start writing your resume from the 1st year. Even if you have nothing to write on it, write those things which you would want to have knowledge about by the time you finish graduation. That way you are going to keep a track of whether you are going in the right direction. Resume writing is the most boring job in the world and the most important too. If you find that your resume has a lot of empty spaces, you will realize that you need to work harder to fill in those empty blanks. Keep updating your resume each year to see how much you have actually covered. And make sure you use those 4 years to fill in at least 2 pages of your resume. Ask questions! You are paying your tuition fee each year and you have the right to bug your lecturers with questions. If they do not answer, you find out the answer and let them know the answer. Be a public speaker, a company would any day prefer a candidate who can sell an air conditioner to an Eskimo than someone who can sit in front of a computer and code. Have the ability to convince people, if you can convince people then you can convince your HR. And most importantly do not forget to have fun, life in graduation (Masters/Phd) is hectic and all the memories of fun you are going to have will be of those 4 years in undergrad. Work hard, party harder, get a degree and find the “right” job.
