Kalaimathy Kamaraj a student of SRM – Architecture program visited for one sem (SAP) for Spring 16. She is back to Chennai. Her predecessor Aishwarya Karunanidhi (the first student from SRM and not related to our past CM) also went for SAP. Both are in college of Architecture Dean’s list for excellent Scholarly Achievement
I am Kalaimathy Kamaraj pursuing my final year B. Arch in the Department of Architecture. I went to Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, USA, as part of SRM University’s Semester Abroad Program (SAP) during my 8th semester.
Initially, I was scared to go as an exchange student, but little did I know that I would get the time of my life. Being there and experiencing a different culture and a different lifestyle, has changed my perception of life. The program at IIT produces generation of Influential architects. Likewise, I also walked along the campus with a dream of becoming a proficient architect.
Over my period of time at IIT, one of my greatest achievements was being appreciated and awarded a certificate by IIT for having earned a place on the college of Architecture Dean’s list for excellent Scholarly Achievement.
At IIT, I was offered a studio course with three other theory courses. The courses dealt with everyday problems and solutions thereby linking me to the scenario and the situations faced in the current world. One of my courses was Architecture studio VI Neighbourhood. In this I was offered a problem to study the neighbourhood of Chicago and thereby design a building in that neighbourhood. This design problem helped me in conception of the elements of physical environment, along with exploring the interface between buildings and the fabric of the existing city. Learning all these gave me an increase in knowledge on how efficiently a building should be built, which will in turn bring an optimistic remark to the architecture fraternity.
I overcame all the challenges in a creative way, with a very good understanding of the course through the knowledge I gained at SRM University’s studio courses.
So, I performed well thereby, I did earn a good remark from my professor who himself stated me among top 5% of students for recommendation.
In one of my other courses I got an opportunity to start writing about Chicago Earlier Skyscrapers (The Auditorium Building- designed by Ar. Adler and Ar. Sullivan) for a book publication (ARCH 497). So, by making documentation on one of the important buildings of the early modern Architecture I learnt ‘How a historic building, in spite of so many hardships has survived till date’. ‘How the technology has seen its hike over the past decades’. ‘How building materials change took the change over the world to a new dimension’. This made me realise that, Our Indian heritage buildings should also be preserved and should not be let to the verge of extinction. By preserving this we do a significant record to architectural humanity.
Not just that, by looking at me working hard and performing well, one of my professors was ready to recommend me for a Teaching assistant job and an Internship. Having earned all these, “I still have a long way to go”.
Currently, I am doing my Internship in a firm (government sector) which is running for more than 40 years with excellence in sustainability and low cost housing techniques. I have been getting good remarks and offers. But for now, my future plan is to perceive Masters in Architecture with the same spirit and become a successful architect.
Last but not the least, all these achievements were mainly possible because of SRM UNIVERSITY’s support and my families’ encouragement for which I will always be thankful and respectful.

UGC recently introduced a ban on Technical Education done on distance mode, contrary to directives of HRD Ministry. Such a decision may be relevant to programs and courses that require laboratory and workshop facilities. Quite a few Master’s programs and even a certain undergraduate programs can be done on distance mode, using advanced Software simulation tools where such tools are required. The significant merits in distance education are you get access to lectures by best Instructors, at relatively insignificant cost and enormous flexibility that one does not have to move out to be physically present. Technology enables interaction through conference and video calls. UGC may consider qualifying their statement.

3-year graduates have had to go through the tough ordeal of paying for an extra year to do Masters in India just to be eligible for a Masters Program in the US. Not anymore! Illinois Tech has now incorporated the advice of World Education Services (WES) to enroll 3-year graduates to their Masters Programs.
The eligibility of 3-year degree holders to apply for their Masters in the US along with 4-year graduates brings much relief to many students. This saves a lot of time and money for the 3-year graduates, who otherwise had to study an extra year after their graduation in India to meet the eligibility criteria of having a 4-year degree. Illinois Institute of Technology gladly embraces this advice and is happy to welcome 3-year graduates from Science, Arts and Commerce backgrounds to their Masters Programs.
To eliminate the possibility of discrimination based on degrees, candidates from both backgrounds will be enrolled to the same courses and will also be attending the same classes. With our guidance and training, Illinois Tech is confident that the 3-year graduates and 4-year graduates will be on par with each other and to ensure there is no discrimination in job opportunities, they will also receive the same degree on completion of the course .
Our staff and counsellors are more than happy to help you with the admissions, scholarship and funding processes. You can also visit our centres in Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune.
Not being sure about what to do next can bring you down even though you are graduating soon. For some of us, making up our mind about the next step can be very stressful with a wide variety of courses to choose from in any given field.
Today companies across all industries are making sure their teams have experts from every field. This makes it a little easier to make a choice as you don’t have to be an engineer to get into the IT industry. You can do what you love in the industry you are interested in. Who says you have to be a software engineer to be in the IT industry? If you have the skills and knowledge you can work as a copywriter for an IT company. Basically, if you are good at what you do, there is always someone to hire you in the industry of your choice.
So it all boils down to what you really want to do. How do you know that you are making the right decision? Here are a few things that can help you make up your mind.
It’s always good to find out more about your career interests through the internet, industry experts, teachers, peers, alumni etc. Clear your doubts about things you don’t know but it is also important to ask questions about the things you already know. You may have misconceptions about the field that might surprise you later, so always get clarity on the things you know as well. Talk to a few people at least so you can see what the common positives and negatives are in the field.
Internships are the best way to make up your mind about an industry. You get direct, first-hand experience so you can get a taste of what will be expected of you if you choose to continue in that field. It will definitely answer most of your questions and clear your doubts and having a couple of internships are always good for you resume so you’re basically killing two birds with one stone!
Sometimes you may be sure about what you want to do but lack of knowledge and preparation can hold you back. You may think you aren’t good at something but the truth may be that you haven’t tried to learn the skills necessary for the job. Find out how the area you are interested in branches out and take up courses that teach you other skills that are necessary to for that field.
Stop wasting time:
Yes you have just graduated and you just want to take a break, put your feet up, and relax. But you can also take a break by learn something that you have always wanted to. And who knows? That may end becoming your career. If it is something you like, it won’t even feel like work. So get out there and take those guitar lessons that you have always wanted to!
At Illinois Tech you will get the right encouragement to follow your heart. To ensure you make the right decisions we always make sure you discuss your academics with our counsellors and staff before you make a decision. Illinois Tech now has been advised by the World Education Services (WES) to enroll 3- year graduates to our masters programs.
