Letter of Recommendation
Over the course of my teaching career, I have come to identify a few key qualities that define a successful student – dedication, perseverance and being proactive. In Ullas, I find each of these in ample and hence, it gives me great pleasure to recommend him to your university. As the Head of the Department of Information Science, I have handled him the courses File Structures and Software Architecture. I have also interacted with him during lab sessions and outside class hours and feel qualified enough to recommend him.
In his final year of engineering, I was his project mentor and have observed him work from close quarters. His team took up a complex project based on the IEEE paper “Controlling IP Spoofing Through Inter-Domain Packet Filters”. The implementation of this project required a great deal of research. His ardor in gaining an in-depth understanding of the topic and the methodical approach he undertook in going about the project was laudable. The fact that he not only executed the project well within the stipulated time, but also added a few modifications of his own is a testimony to his perseverance and innovation.
He has excellent communication skills and is very articulate in presenting his ideas. His presentation on the topic ‘CHARMY: A Framework for Designing and Verifying Architectural Specifications’ requires a special mention. His eloquence, self-confidence and understanding of the topic were well manifested here as he was able to clearly elucidate some convoluted topics.
He demonstrated his creativity and management skills when he co-founded and organized the event ‘Verbal Googly’ in our intra-collegiate fest. The popularity it garnered led to being a regular feature in our annual, state-level fest – ‘Pantheon’. This brought to fore his organizational skills and leadership qualities, as he and his team conducted the event with panache.
I believe that his inquisitive mind and analytical skills combined with his technical know-how will greatly facilitate research work at your university. I am confident that he will be a great asset to your esteemed university and hence, I gladly recommend Ullas for the graduate program.
