Discover what makes education at Manipal an experience that lasts a lifetime.
The blinking screen of my phone showed me just I what I needed – a notification calling for interested individuals to join the newly founded literary club. Instantly, I felt more cheerful than I had in a long while.
Our projects and initiatives have only been able to find this level of success due to the enormous support of our faculty coordinators, the school authorities and of course the VSO family. However, Akshara lives on the patronage of the innocent, warm and welcoming smiles which greet us at every visit.
Inspiration. We’re constantly looking for it. In movies, in quotes, in books, and in podcasts. Looking up ‘inspiring music’ and ‘inspiring stories’ on the internet was almost an everyday ritual for me. Until I stopped looking up and looked around. I came across Sakshi Maheshwari, a charming fourth-year medical student at Kasturba Medical College, Manipal. I only […]
Media Technology (earlier known as Print and Media) is a very vast course. One can say, “Why can’t you just take an Arts course on mass media instead?” or “You can still do the technical stuff in media if you take up a core stream.” But this branch combines both these things in a way […]
The 6th of October, 2018 will always hold a special place in my heart. This was the day I discovered my true purpose. The day that a good deal of speakers went about telling it exactly like it is, and a great deal of emotional variation was experienced. There were speakers belonging to all walks […]
Two and a half years ago, I made a decision that changed the course of my college days, I joined thrustMIT. It allowed me to spend my time productively and I got hands-on experience of theoretical concepts that we are taught. ‘thrustMIT’ was a very young team, barely a few months old started by a few of my friends with a passion for rocketry. It seemed like the ideal team for me, since I have always loved rockets from the time I went to the NASA space camp at Huntsville.
New beginnings and coming to college bring with it a sense of isolation and self-doubt. We all want to be a part of something bigger. We all want to have a story to tell. So did I. Being completely apathetic to the idea of fitness, I walked into Manipal aspiring to achieve great things.
The most glorious phase of one’s life & one of the most interesting stage that gives us an opportunity to explore is the College phase. My experience at SOAHS, Manipal has taught me one fundamental thing-life is unpredictable.
Manipal is like a living dream. Dream of many students like me, who wants to gather whole of the universe in their hands. And I am living in such a Universe now. After my under graduation I was very anxious about my future, my career because I was unsatisfied whatever I had after those 5 years. Oh, let me tell you first about that long 5 years unsatisfied journey. I am a Dentist, be precise discontented Dentist, yeah you have heard right, I am a dentist who is going to take you to a never ending voyage of Public Health.
I entered a course I was not aware of, my family's situation was not so charming either and worst of all I was forced to move out of the Gulf after 19 long yrs. The part that hit me the most was that I would never go back to those facilities again. Then I entered Manipal and realised that maybe life had different but interesting plans.
Nostalgia drips from the words of a man who talks of his college, be it a freshman, sophomore or an alumnus. Well, college is indeed the best part of one’s student life and more so because one has so many memories attached to it. When I ask myself what makes my institute special, it is not just one thing that I can give credit to. In fact, it is the blend of the rich diversity that Manipal Institute of Technology holds, which makes it special.
It is a specialized branch of Electrical & Electronics engineering. In the sense, the principle working and operation of various measuring instruments (digital and analog), study on measure of variables such as light, sound, temperature, flow, and the control of these variables to obtain a set output can be identified as the primary objective of this course.
Industrial & Production Engineer is synonymous with Systems Integrator - in other words, a big-picture thinker. He is an employee who takes what exists today and conceptualizes what should exist in the future. Many people are misled by the term Industrial Engineer. The word ‘Industrial” does not just mean manufacturing. It encompasses a wide span of industries ranging from FMCG, IT & System, Consultancy, Banking & Financial Institution and to Telecom.
Mechatronics is still a branch in doubt. Parents are rarely ready to send their wards to a branch which does not have a lot of 'scope' in our country today. Everyone vies the Computer or the Electronics path. Not many want to tread the road not taken. What if I told you that Mechatronics offers you the best of all worlds?
My first memory of college is of my parents getting into the taxi to leave, leaving me be, at Manipal Institute of Technology. I spent the first eighteen years of my life in Delhi, the place where I was born and brought up, and it would seem as though that is where I learnt most of what I knew about being an adult.
As a kid, even I used to fantasise about a perfect college life. Now, my college life may not be as perfect as they were in my fantasies but it sure isn’t inadequate. I came to Manipal to discover myself away from the pampering that I had endured for the past 17 years.
As the comfortable Volvo halted at the KMC gates, with a jerk, it was time to start a new chapter in life, MANIPAL! The morning did not see the consoling rays of the beautiful Sun that sets in the lost edges of the End Point.
I started my engineering studies in Manipal institute of technology in 2017. Education is very important in every student’s life. And we spend maximum time in getting well educated in academic and technical degrees. I think a college education is a way to understand the things that we learned from 1st class to 12th in schools. School education goals can be to understand basic things that we have to use in life. And the college education goals can be how to sustain and grow in life
I will never forget the days and sometimes even nights (ah, the hackathons; but more on that later) that I spent parsing through millions of lines of code and text in the grandiose study halls here at MIT.
I finally got the closure upon receiving the results of my exams. After having been accepted in quite a few colleges, I was faced with a tough decision of choosing from a variety of colleges and there I was, in the middle of another dilemma.

It took me a few weeks to settle in but Manipal went from being strange land to home in no time. Especially because of the people, I think the faculty, seniors and batch-mates were all a big family.
Starting from failing in the 1st semester to getting distinctions in the University exam, from finishing studies in the library to returning back to hostel at sharp 9 pm (that’s our curfew), I learnt to deal with almost everything that came along my way.
Life is all about change, and while in college, these changes happen at breakneck speed. Everything seems like a surprise and comes as a learning experience. It is one of the biggest transitions a young adult can make.
When most international students are asked about their experience of studying in India, they think of the track ‘Summer of 69’. Ayesha Mussa, a 1st year BA in Culinary Arts student, confirmed the same by recollecting her initial days at Manipal. Though she hails from the beautiful island of Zanzibar, which is off the East […]
“Man has always yearned to fly like a bird. From the human-powered ornithopter to the Wright brothers’ flying machine that took off the ground in 1903 as the first ever aircraft; we have come a long way in realizing that dream. But what has remained unchanged is the deep-rooted fascination to challenge and defy gravity […]
