From mighty missiles to space satellites, from LCD screens in your drawing rooms to microwaves in your kitchen, from smart phones/i-phones you show off to laptops/tablets you work on, from iPods/camera you’re crazy about to internet you can’t live without it is we who rule your world- a set of Technology driven, gadget friendly people –THE TRONIXITES or officially called as ‘Bachelors of Technology in ECE’.
Credit goes to our forefathers (from Franklin to Marconi to Shockley) for being so innovative, intelligent and progressive. Who would have predicted that someday the inventions of both Edison and Graham Bell would be fused together to give society something that it would use in order to speed up communication? Who would have thought that mankind would soon ditch its dependence on wired telegraphs and instead opt to use Skype to communicate with friends and families abroad? ALL HAIL ELECTRONICS. Wars and weaponry, space explorations, business and finance sector, power corporations, education system and even entertainment industry got revolutionized with the very advent of it.
Coming back to ECE as an engineering trade you gotta know-it is the most awesomest, wowest and coolest branch ever. A perfect blend of technology and fun, enough to drive you crazy. Gone are the times of ‘do aur do panch’. Tronixites work to let 10+10=1010 ( read as 2 plus 2 equals 10). Yes we make miracles happen-Sophisticated Robots, Flying cars, Miniature satellites,iPads; the list is endless.They often say ‘Necessity is the mother of invention’. But we work the other way round. Invent some cool gadget and make people addicted to it. As simple as that! ECE is a mishmash of various other streams with its course including Computer Science subjects (like Data Structures &Networking), Electrical Engineering subjects(like Power Electronics and Control Systems) plus a huge syllabus of its own. And we study it ALL! Phodu naa? Upar se humanities department ko bhi jhelna padta hai. OK, I admit-we are the phodu-est of all (Yes you can definitely pat our back :P).
Truly speaking during the freshman’s year we heard certain non-euphonic facts regarding this branch-
1. It is the toughest branch. Bauhat padhna padta hai.
2. You need to attend a lot of classes. No mass bunks.
3. Job nahi lagti
And I was like-‘Kisne kaha tha mech se slide karwa ke ece le lo…ab bhukto :|’. Howbeit from time to time we realized that 1, 2 and 3 are mere myths. Regarding Point no 1 every individual has his or her own perspective. But you can always be a ‘Decent pointer someone’ by studying just few hours before the exam (like I do). Point no 2-ahem ahem; you gotta be kidding me. Mass bunk karna toh hamari ragon mein hai. Trust me you’ll be bored of not-attending-classes and your non-tronix friends will be jealous of you for the same. Point no 3- we again proved it wrong and had ‘faad’ placements this year. We made it not only to the core companies of electrical and electronics but also to software and business companies pretty well. On the top of it all A FACEBOOK employee is our batchie. Do I need to say more?
This post couldn’t be completed without special mention to EL-3. A combo of naughtiest of guys and cutest of girls it is the most awesome batch ever. Copying is their best policy. Seldom did their circuits worked. They believe that Mass bunk is their birth right and have inspired EL-1 and EL-2 for the same. Nevertheless they are the most todu-faadu people in the whole batch. :P
I’m telling you, no need to tell that ECE IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE BEST. We love tronix and proudly boast of being a part of 2k12 batch. We neither studied loads like CS people nor did we attended all classes like trical or mech. We had unlimited fun, did all sorts of pagalpanti and still bagged the best of jobs. Not only this we were equally into culturals and sports. Talent hai boss.We simply rock. Yeah, E.C.E ROCKS (koi doubt mat rakhna).
To Engineer is human, to be a tronixite-divine! :P
and Have a Gadget-friendly day!
Pray: 'Agle janam mohe tronix mein hi keejo' :P
PS 1: Time to say Goodbye. ECE you'll be missed a lot! :(
PS 2: No offences to any other branch :P
