When I was in my final year(1997) Computer Engineering at MIT, my project guide was Prof. B. M. Patil sir. It’s been 23 years now that I have passed out of my college but Patil sir has always been so supportive since day one till even today. As a teacher, mentor, guide he is no doubt an excellent person but apart from all these academic connects he is an excellent human being. I think the bonding between the students and the institute is built by the teachers. What is an institute without the good teachers? Its merely a building. Right? But its the teachers who turn this building into a great academic experience in students’ lives through continuous engagement and assessment. And Prof. B.M. Patil sir is one of those teachers I have come across in my life who not only teaches students the academic subjects but also guides them throughout their academic and career journey. I am fortunate to have had him as my project guide and mentor.

From the very first day till the last day of my M Tech journey, Sir was guiding me in enormous ways which helped me to fight against various problems and also helped me to attain great success . He was always very kind and generous with all of us. The best thing that I personally learnt from him is his passion towards his work, he was always striving to find new, interesting and varying ways to improve our practice.
I did my M Tech project under the guidance of sir. Throughout my M Tech project sir was always ready with the best solutions that helped me to complete my thesis on time. With the proper inputs provided by sir , I was the first person to submit my thesis in my batch.
I really want to thank you Sir for your valuable inputs.
