I completed my graduation from University of Delhi and had to move back to Pune. I did not wanted to do masters from DU again. While searching for the college that offers good M.Sc Biotechnology course, I came across TNAU and it felt like a match. The university has given my career a direction. My degree from TNAU is one of the milestones of my life. It has been recognised by UGC & AICTE. Even if I could not get on-campus placement opportunity, I did get off-campus opportunities and I am happy with it.
