During my CET counselling back in 2007, BNMIT was the only institute on my mind, despite of having an opportunity to join the then popular institutes. And this is because of the kind of campus culture and morals that it displayed even back then. The reason I’ve been able to take up various challenges in my life, be it academic, industrial or personal is because of the values that I learnt here, which went hand in hand with the emphasis on ensuring that we were very strong with the basics in our stream!
