The following is a quote from Mr. Kothari on the value of this award to his career development: “During my Masters I obtained an internship with Cisco Systems Inc. at San Jose, CA (Feb 2013), and after graduating, was offered permanent employment with Juniper Networks Inc., Sunnyvale, CA (Oct 2013). Throughout my Masters, this Fellowship Award provided me with financial independence due to which I could concentrate on my research full-time. The skills acquired during my research were instrumental in obtaining both the internship and my present full time position. I proudly and gratefully acknowledge the fellowship and my association with I&M society in my Master’s thesis, my published papers and my resume.”
