Journey as a student of AeSI is full of crossroads. A student at least
finds himself at these three crossroads.

First one is should I join AeSI or not? This is the very basic one and
this blog is littered with posts that try to answer this question.

Second crossroad is encountered at the end of section A. Which stream
do I choose for section B? This is a tough one and it was the quest
for this question that prompted me to start the ouraesi yahoo group 10
years back.

This topic is also well talked about in this blog, if you find
yourself at the same crossroad, search the blog with appropriate
search words and I hope you will find some answers.

The third crossroad happens just before graduating. Should I join the
industry or go for higher studies?

This one is not answered that extensivly on this blog. I will attempt
to answer this in coming posts.

Meanwhile, if you have any advice, comment and remarks on any of this
or other crossroads faced by an AeSI students, do pitch in....

Dear Students,

It is our pleasure to inform you that AeSI Alumni Association and
NAFEMS, an International Association for Engineering Analysis
Community is jointly organizing a two-day workshop on FEM and
Practical stress Analysis for the benefit of engineers involved in FEM
activities. Overall this workshop which is also supported by AeSI

Effort not an hobby

This blog is an effort, it's not a hobby.

An effort to give back what I have received. It's a way to share my
experiences and insights that I had the previlege of having.

It's the effort of documenting the path that every aesi student charts

So if you email me, or contact me via the comments, and I don't reply.
It's not that I don't want to. It's just I am involved with other
things in life.

Maintaining, writing here takes effort and so far I have managed to
keep it. I intent to do so in future.

This post is an apology to everyone whom I am not able to reply. Rest
assured I read each and every mail and comment that I receive.

Thanks for being part of this journey with me.

Campus for AeSI and Industrial Training after section B

To speed things up, today I will attempt to answer two questions that
were asked two weeks back.

If you remember, in my previous two posts I am attempting to answer
question that are present in every aesi student's mind.

Today's questions are

3) Is it true that without 60%marks in section b u wont manage a
industrial training?

My knowledge on this is limited as it concens the new syllabus. In old
times, if you have overall 60% AeSI provided you with a 6 to 12 months
On Job Training. But one can always take your own initiative and get a
on job training in nal, Hal etc

Anyone here who has more Information on this, can you please chip in.
Any info on this is most welcome.

4) Are there any companies coming for recruitment in convocation?
Unfortunately there is no recruitment at the convocation.

At the convocation you get your certificates, you get to meet some
aerospace personalities and two good meals. That's it. No recruitment
drive there.

But don't worry, there's a good news in this department. AeSIAA has
taken this up and it conducts a recruitment drive or campus for AMAeSI
graduates once a year. Last time we did the recruitment drive in AeSI
Bangalore office and two AMAeSI graduates were placed through it. This
year aesiaa wants to make this event more grand!!

And there's one another avenue where lot of recruiter's post their job
recquirements. Ouraesi yahoo group. Be a part of it and participate.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to leave your questions, remarks in
