Patel is pursuing a dual degree -BE (honours) in computer science and MSc (honours) in mathematics -at BITS. “I couldn’t believe it for a few seconds when my recruiter called me to present the offer. It was the best day of my life,” says Patel.
Hailing from Rajkot, Gujarat, Patel finished his schooling from Atmiya. “I was not quite bothered about placements till my third year at BITS. I had no clue as to what companies are looking out for. But, I made sure I kept my grades high and focused on learning as many things as I could to update my knowledge about computer science and mathematence and mathematics,” says Patel.
He scored a CGPA of 9.4 in his college and cleared GATE 2014 with an all-India rank of 10 in computer science.
