ADEN (Indian Railway Service of Engineers)
I feel blessed to be alumni of the esteemed institute, where we were always kept on our toes, tested to the breaking point, at the same time the constant encouragement from our professors and their readiness to go an extra mile for the students, made us worthy to face the world outside the boundaries of the college. Thank you for everything.

I passed out the institute in 2010. I have best memories of institute for good teaching, nice teachers, and lively atmosphere for individual growth. Being a non Nagpurian I remember college most for Hostel a home away from home. As the technical knowledge acquired during my BE helped me develop insight for my future and helped me to grab opportunities like working in Delhi Metro and Indian Railways.

The days I spent in Civil EnggDept of Ramdeobaba Engineering College, Nagpur has played a pivotal role in the formation of the person that I am today. I walked into the campus as a young girl with a burning passion to become aproficient engineer. The staff members paved the way to not only to realize my dreams but also introduced me into the world of cutting edge research and technology. Whenever I think of my college days nostalgic memories come flooding in, especially the togetherness I experienced with the staff and fellow students. I wish all the academic staffs and students of this prestigious institution, all the very best! Thank you Civil Dept!!!
