Alumni Testimony
Thomas Jose- MCA 2004
Assistant Manager IT and Online Sales,Strontium Technology Pte.Ltd,Singapore "MCA was not initially in my mind after completing my Bachelors degree. It was by chance and my father's recommendation I selected Rajagiri for my MCA degree. It turned out to be the best choice I ever made. Rajagiri helped me to transform myself to a complete professional and a good human being. The courses were well taught and all my teachers were very friendly and approachable. I am really proud to say that I am a Rajarigianxx."
Arun P. Krishnan – MCA 2006
Rajagiri was initially an institution of convenience for me. I chose it because it was within daily commuting distance for me from home. Looking back now, Rajagiri has been the best decision of my life. I attribute all success in my career and happiness in life to my teachers in the MCA department. When I was a confused student at the crossroads of life, my teachers donned multiple roles as mentors, friends, life & career guides, counselors and much more. That Rajagiri DNA will always be in me and wherever I go, I identify as a true blue Rajagirian. The faculty of the department of computer applications at Rajagiri are like family to me and words cannot express my gratitude to them for having helped me choose and excel in my career.

When I joined for MCA at Rajagari College I must admit I wasn't the happiest person, but it was not because of the college but how far it was from my hometown. As born and brought up in Thiruvananthapuram in a close-knit family moving to another city for Postgrad was a daunting thought for me. It was a stroke of genius from my father that he insisted that I should join Rajagiri that its time for me to step up and achieve new things in life. Reluctantly I agreed to it, but when I look back after these many years I should say I would never want to do my MCA in any other college other than Rajagiri. What makes Rajagiri soo special is that it does things differently. It's not alone focused on the academic side of things but how to mold a better model of yourself, in other words, it sets you up for any challenges lying ahead. Rajagiri does this with the backbone of strongly driven MCA staff members, who will go that extra mile to make sure you step up to the challenge. At Rajagiri you are guaranteed to meet more than a few likeminded classmates many of whom will end being your friends for life and adds color to your college life. I was able to go to MCA fests representing the college and stand in front of a crowd and perform. It might not seem big to you but being a guy with stage fear all my life it was a huge confidence booster to me, we even won prices which was a bonus. Rajagiri does that, it will give you the platform. I still remember vividly my first day at the college, were our principal Injody sir said to us, "Be like a lotus, though from the mud reaching for the stars."

Even the great Sachin Tendulkar needed a certain Shivaji Park to hone his > skill set to shape his career as it is and bring laurels for the entire country. I am a much lesser mortal than Tendulkar and do not have the capability to match him in any aspect in the 22 yards. But Rajagiri was my Shivaji Park where I landed and made my career, or rather life, from scratch. Almost all the educational institutions tend to be one-dimensional by stressing on the development of one’s academic strengths, but Rajagiri is one of those > rare gems where the overall potential of every individual stepping into that sacred campus is chiselled. I can vouch that on behalf of my entire batch, who perhaps had that rare opportunity to get their careers set in very different spheres of life, ranging from PSUs, banks, schools, colleges and, of course, information technology. The most apt word which relates to Rajagiri is “life” & a term in there is "life-defining".

Senior ERP Analyst - NTTDATA Global Delivery Services , Bangalore

Decision to joining Rajagiri was a turning point in my career and personal development. I did't had any prior knowledge in computer science before joining MCA and in initial college days, I was struggling alot to come to track. Only because of support and encouragement of teachers , I was able to complete MCA with high percentage . I learnt lessons of hardwork , sharing, professionalism and so many from Rajagiri. I will be always in debt to Rajagiri which gave me a good career and making me a better person. Proud to say 'I am Rajagirian'.
Ritesh Radhakrishnan - MCA 2013
Lead - Software Testing at Ignitho Technologies, Infopark Founder, Belong Foundation

"It is with great pride I introduce myself as a Rajagirian. I owe a large part of whatever I have achieved to Rajagiri. It did a great job of equipping me with the knowledge and skills required to excel in a technical leadership position and moreover, to be a socially responsible citizen. Rajagiri not only gives to its students an armoury of skills but also develops in them the assurance of being as good as the best anywhere. That, in the final analysis, is the ultimate confidence booster."
