Ms. Aparajita S M.Sc (IT), 2003-2005 Batch

“Brand MOP has been the best platform to start off my career. I should say that The Computer Science and IT Department at MOP hosts a wonderful environment to learn and grow. I did my B.Sc.(Electronics) and I joined MOP for my M.Sc.(IT) course, It was a complete shift in my PG from my UG but I could easily scale up due to the innovative training and friendly staff. We had our mind thinking and working not only in our subjects but in MOP Community Radio and Department fests. Our batch was the maiden batch of the M.Sc(IT) course and I always feel proud to say that we were 100% placed even before we received our final mark sheets. Happy to be a part of M.O.P.
