I am pleased to write this recommendation for Mr. Akash Patel. He is final year student in undergraduate programme of Civil Engineering at L D College of Engineering which is affiliated with Gujarat Technological University. He has been with us nearly three and half years. During this I have taught him following subjects:1) Fluid Mechanics in semester 3 2) Applied Fluid Mechanics in semester 6 3) Railway, Bridge and Tunnel Engineering in semester 6 4) Design Engineering from semester 3 to semester 6I have known Akash as a motivated and hard working student. He has impressed me with his research and teamwork abilities. He has done very well in academics. Besides of academics he always keeps himself updated about the recent developments in his field. His basic strength is his knowledge on various topics that he gained through practical application in the field. One thing which I appreciated was that he learnt how it was done but more importantly shared the details will all his peers and juniors so that they also could have the exposure with current scenario. He is amongst our most enthusiastic student in class. He regularly participates in all technical and cultural events at college as well as university level.He done project on Traffic Control and Management in group of four students under Design Engineering subject under my guidance. He got good grades for this project in all semesters. So he is equally comfortable in groups and individual learning and exhibits his leadership qualities as per the situation. He has exceptional organizational and managerial skills. His work always shows his passion and dedication towards the field. He has really good perspective in research area and this quality made him a special participant for class interactions and discussions.It is not surprising that he wants to go for Masters Program because he has academic ability, research points of view and keen interest towards the field which qualities should required for higher studies. I strongly recommend him for graduate program at your university and I am confident that he will definitely perform very well as he did here.
