While many students from LPU marked amazing
starts to their careers, Tanya Arora has become the highlight of 2019.
“I am excited to get the opportunity to work at Microsoft. I did my summer internship at the company and had a great experience. To now get selected as a member of the Microsoft team is a dream come true. I have always had a deep interest in technology and have worked hard to stay on top of emerging trends like AI and Machine Learning. I have benefitted immensely from my peers at LPU, several of whom are equally technology savvy. I am also thankful to my alma mater, Lovely Professional University that provided an invigorating and career-focused learning environment and my teachers and mentors who helped me at every turn”, said Tanya.
Ashwani Kumar Tewari, Associate professor and Deputy Dean, School of Computer Application, Lovely Professional University said, “We are proud of the kind of offer that Tanya has received from Microsoft. At LPU, our focus is on industry-academia immersion. The centres of excellence that we have, offer students plenty of opportunities to work on real-time industry projects and apply what they learn in the classroom. We hope to see more students following Tanya’s path in the future”.
The School of Computer Science and Engineering at LPU is without doubt one of the best performing schools at the university, establishing a record for the highest number of placements in North India in the last three years. With several alumni working in Fortune 500 companies at promising compensation packages, the School of Computer Science and Engineering exemplifies LPU’s vision of being a premier academic institution that is recognised for its contributions to the industry and society. The BTech admissions for LPU take place through university’s entrance test NEST (National Entrance & Scholarship Test). The students would be able to appear for the exams in two phases, one in January 2020 and other in April 2020. This is the same pattern as that of the newly introduced JEE pattern by the CBSE. Based on performance on the test, the student can also get scholarships upto Rs. 5.4 Lakh per student.
