A way to learn something is doing a project related to it. Then I applied to the university through the IR cell FTP portal.

The communication was very smooth and there wasn't any difficulty. We just have to be regular and complete our tasks on time. And the professor was really helpful in resolving my doubts.

5. What advice would you like to give to our fellow KGPians who aspire for FT?
Students can pursue FT, it would provide them an in-depth knowledge of what they want to learn. There will be lots of opportunities to learn from the experience of the professor. It would be a great experience as you will get to know how things work in other universities.
