Bhubaneswar, Dec 6 (LocalWire): An alumnus of Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) has topped the Indian Engineering Services (IES) Examination 2018 conducted by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
Shashank Shekhar completed M. Tech from IIT, Khargapur, after getting his B.Tech degree in Electronic & Telecommunication Engineering from KIIT in 2013.
“I did not take any coaching for preparation of Engineering Services Exam. The only reason that I could achieve success in this examination is because of what I had learned at KIIT,” said Shashank.
“There is no point discussing whether only IITians or NITians get better marks, or the Engineering Services is only for them,” he said. “Anyone who has patience, dedication and talent can qualify. This perception is completely wrong because I have done my B.Tech from KIIT.”
Congratulating Shashank, KIIT founder Prof. Achyuta Samanta said, “His success proves the quality of teaching and educational ambiance at KIIT.”
