Student Speak

Mr Shivam Garg EECE Class of 2016

“I feel privileged to be part of The NorthCap University’s growing family. After pursuing the competitive BTech programme in Electronics and Communication Engineering, working for a US based Multinational Company dealing in electronic design automation for electric engineering and electronics is a dream come true for me! I still remember my initial days at the university when my professors introduced me to various subjects in this area of study. Of all the subjects, I developed a special interest in Digital & VLSI Design. It was under the guidance and supervision of Dr. Neerja Kr. Shukla that I got the opportunity to develop this interest further. He encouraged and motivated me to undertake various research projects, trainings and workshops. He trained me and helped me grow professionally. I dedicate my job with a Rs 10 lakh plus package at a leading EDA company to him, the Dept of EECE and the University!”
