IEEE GOLD STEP Event at Warangal on 7th April 2012

GOLD (Graduates Of Last Decade ) Affinity Group of IEEE Hyderabad Section Organized STEP ( Student Transition and Elevation Program ) event on 7th April 2012 at Warangal, Hyderabad. We started from Hyderabad around 9 AM  with our speaker in this event Arun. It took almost three and half hours via national highway 202. Most of the road was newly constructed and pretty smooth. I already had a trip last month I had a chance to visit NIT Warangal this time which reminded my UG college VSSUT which also has huge area, lots of departments including the traditional engineering branches. I  also and meet few very active IEEE volunteers. Session started at a local Hotel Landmark where graduating students from near by colleges were waiting. After a short introduction to IEEE GOLD , I handed over to Arun for his session titles "Entrepreneurship as a career path ". It was a very  useful for upcoming engineers. His slides can be found in the GitHub repository.

We had a high tea/snacks break during which students interacted with the speakers and other volunteers from industry. After the tea break we also had another extended panel discussion session for answering student's queries and the speakers and people from Industry shared their experience with the students. This was one of the very fruitful session and met the expectations of the students in my perspective. We had fun answering very interesting questions from the students as well.
