Aakash Bansal, Technical Intern at JMoon Technologies shares his experience in this brief interview
College: Maharaja Surajmal Institute of Technology
Please tell us about your selection procedure at JMoon Technologies?
I came to know about the opportunity in my third semester through letsintern.com and filled the form at their website. They asked for a resume and after about 2 weeks, they called me for an interview where I was asked about the difficulties faced during different projects and my past experience, after a friendly interview of about 30 minutes, I got selected and was asked to join.
How did you prepare for the placement?
I revised all the concepts I learnt in summer training after first year, reviewed all my projects before appearing for the interview.
What makes this company different from other similar firms?
JMoon Technologies is a group consisting of a MakerSpace, an e-commerce website to sell robotic and embedded components (roborium.com), JMoon LABS (a training centre for learning humanoids, arduino, embedded, robotics and similar topics), and is going to begin makermandi.com where makers can sell their self made products.
It has a very friendly environment where all the interns work all together to meet the specified goals in given time period, interns are allowed to use all the instruments and devices, to prepare their own projects as well.
What and how many internship and projects you did at your college?
Internship at JMoon Technologies was my first internship, and I am still continuing it where I had worked on projects like MakerSpace Automation, Android controlled cars, LED Cubes, Automated Plant Watering System, and much similar projects.
Other than JMoon Technologies, I got a chance to work in the R&D Division of Department of Electronics and IT, Ministry of IT, Government of India where I was asked to work upon fifth generation technology (5G). I prepared microstrip based filter designs for 5G and quaterwave transformers for impedance matching. Also, I got a chance to work for Digital India as a Bug Reporter and Testing Incharge for various Digital India Products such as Digital Lockers, e-Basta, e-Sign, National Scholarship Portal and e-Hospitals.
On my personal level, I had worked upon few embedded based projects such as password controlled security system, repairing of 3D printers, gesture controlled robots, self balancing robots, hovercraft, Music Generation by chords using Matlab; some radio astronomy based activities such as NASA Radio Jove, Stanford’s Sudden Ionospheric Disturbances, Refractive Telescopes.
Currently, I am working on Patch Antenna Designing for 5G, Wireless Chargers for mobiles, and a novel way of introducing touch interface to old laptop and desktop computers.
What is the role of the academics in getting a good placement?
Academics play a part in good placement as well, but projects and a good experience make students a better candidate as they have a practical exposure of industries.
Are you planning to do higher studies in future?
Yes, I am planning for MS just after completing my engineering, as my major interests have always been towards research in wireless technology and embedded systems.
Would you like to give any general advice to your juniors?
As an advice, I would suggest freshers to explore all the domains available, and not limit themselves in any particular field. Explore everything in your freshman year so that you can find your domain of interest, and continue to work in it. There are enormous of other domains left unexplored, but has great opportunities inside them. People can feel free to contact me through mails at firstname.lastname@example.org
