Focusing for the exams, barely Ilearned anything
I didn’t understand Electronics norCommunications
Did final year project on ‘Hacking EMWaves and reproducing the same’
Project was a huge success resultedin Front page of National Dailynewspaper….
I learned Fourier transform,electronic circuit and more fromthis 3 month project !
I learned it from Internet!
Story 2 : Where I started my first job
DUBAI CITY

3 months of intensive training
I learned more than what wastaught during my 4 years ofengineering career
In terms of technical as well as indecision making!
