The Department of Mechanical Engineering invited Mr. Akshay Singla (2009-2013 Batch) to deliver an Alumni Talk on ‘Aspect of Foreign Language on Prospective Career’. Akshay is working with Maruti Udyog Ltd. as a Manager on Research and Development of Projects. He talked about various aspects of the foreign languages (Spanish, French, German, Japanese, and Mandarin) and their significance in opening up wide options of career opportunities, both nationally and internationally. He also stressed how students should adapt and respect the food, belief, and culture of the citizens of different countries. He later highlighted the impact of e-waste and its management and the contribution of Maruti in this regard. The road map of the success of Electric vehicles, internationally and nationally was also a point of discussion and the expected policy reforms by the government to expedite the implementation of EVs on road. The students were very enthusiastic and asked questions regarding Akshay’s experience and exposure.
