Presigious Google Internship for an IIEST student - Saturday, August 20, 2016 at 10:51

IIEST Student to pursue research on various Google Projects and Products

Compiled and edied by Sandeep Chatterjee, 98ME, GAABESU Executive Committee Member (2015-2017)

Rachit Belwariar, a 5th Semester Undergraduate Student (Integrated B.Tech-M.Tech) of Information Technology at IIEST Shibpur has been selected by Google U.S. to pursue research on various Google Projects and Products. This was a worldwide competition in which the students from all over the globe (including Ivy League Schools and IITs) participated to secure the top spots as there are only about 100 seats. It is believed that getting a research/internship in Google is tougher than getting into MIT or Harvard. There are multiple technical interview rounds as part of the screening process. Rachitís favorite subjects are Data Structures and Algorithms. Gennady Korotkevich, a three time Google Code Jam Winner is his idol. Rachit has also cleared the initial rounds of Google Code Jam 2016 and Facebook Hacker Cup 2016.

Hoping to see many more "Rachit"s who will compete at the highest level, win, and make us all proud just the way Rachit did. I hope that Rachit's energy, talent, and ambition (I looked up Rachit's Linkdn profile and it is impressive) have already fired up several others in the campus.
Some years ago Prf. Roy, our current director shared his vsion for IIEST - "tapas-da, raat baro-tar somoy o campus gom-gom korbe".
A campus full of bright, talebted, passionate youn gstudents like rachit - willing to dream the impossible, willing to do whatever it takes to realize that dream, full of energy, and full of life.
Wishing you the best in life Rachit and never forget to give back - people who just take are nothing.
