Dimple Kohli, a student of Computer Science at AIMETC, is the first in her family to be pursuing B.Tech. Her father Harsh Vardhan Kohli, an advocate in Jalandhar, does not believe in forcing children into anything and says he would continue to support his daughter in her career choices. In an interview, Dimple, who is now in her first year, and her father, tell us why they chose AIMETC. Edited excerpts:

Why prompted you to opt for AIMETC?

Harsh Vardhan: I took my daughter Dimple, who wanted to study B.Tech, to several institutes across Jalandhar. She found AIMETC, with its good campus and facilities, to be quite promising so we chose to enroll her there. Simultaneously, I also got enquired about the institute from a lot of people who had completed their schooling at Apeejay College of Fine Arts (ACFA), who assured us of Apeejay’s quality of education.

Dimple: I explored a number of colleges but the way the teachers interacted with us at AIMETC was what impressed me. One of the deans introduced me to the college and made me feel comfortable. I also liked the overall environment when I went for demo classes.

What do you think of the classes?

Harsh Vardhan: Dimple had been going to college and attending classes. prior to the institute being closed due to the surge in Covid-19 cases. At that time, I would regularly talk to her regarding the developments in college. Now, they have online classes. The teaching faculty at AIMETC treats students as their own children. They have made my daughter feel very comfortable at the institute.

Dimple: The staff at AIMETC is one of the finest. The teachers explain every concept very well. Prior to the online classes, we used to have two or three Physics practical classes in a day, which were very helpful. The classes are held in a systematic and organised way.

What was the first visit to the college like?

Harsh Vardhan: It was a very good experience. The staff treated us very well. They took us around the campus to show the facilities they offer, including excellent computer labs and explained everything we asked about. The Apeejay management has been very cooperative.

Plans after B.Tech?

Harsh Vardhan: My daughter is the first in the family to be pursuing B.Tech, because that is what she wanted. I do not believe in imposing anything on my child. You can only show the right path to your child, but the end goal is finally decided by them. I am confident that at college, she will gradually be exposed to the various career opportunities and will choose what suits her the best. Even if she wants to pursue higher studies, I will never say no.

Dimple: I would want to pursue higher studies but if I am able to bag a good job, I will first opt for that.

Did you enquire about the placement cell at AIMETC?

Harsh Vardhan: I got positive feedback about placements at AIMETC from my acquaintances. Whether my daughter is able to make the most of the placement cell depends upon her hard work and capabilities.

Does AIMETC encourage participation in extra-curricular activities?

Harsh Vardhan: Dimple tried her hand at badminton during the lockdown. But at college, she also won a badminton tournament. She keeps participating in several extra-curricular activities.

Dimple: Not just badminton, I recently took part in a debate competition. I secured the first position in a coding competition as well.
