Janarddan Sarkar (Son of Mr. Mohan Lal Sarkar and Leena Devi Sarkar), Alumnus, CITK Batch 2015 completed B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from CIT Kokrajhar in the year 2019. He was raised and educated in Jagiroad, a little town roughly 70 kilometers from Guwahati.
His scholastic experience began at Jagiroad, at Shankardev Vidya Niketan, Jagiroad, where he received his HSLC certification in 2012. After that, he moved to Salt Brook Academy in Dibrugarh for his 12th grade, which he completed in 2014.
He took a year off to study for competitive entrance exams. He was admitted to CIT, Kokrajhar, in the CSE branch in 2015. A new adventure began, and he continued to learn new things. His system broke during an Infosys assessment test on a random day of 7th semester, and he was unable to complete the test. That was the day he began GATE preparation seriously and completely by self-study, with no clear clue where to begin. Later, faculty members at CITK assisted him in resolving the issues.
He could pass GATE in 2019, the same year he graduated from CIT. He went to IIT Patna for an interview, but couldn't get over it. He was accepted into the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST) at Shibpur a few days later. He was offered another opportunity at the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST) in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, a few days later. Finally, in July of 2019, He began his Master of Technology in Machine Learning and Computing Branch at IIST. He had the opportunity to intern at Continental AG in Banglore during his second year of M.tech. In July 2021. He received his Master's degree from IIST and began working at Continental as a full-time Machine Learning Engineer. He mentioned that “CITK showed me how to explore the world so that I could make a small contribution to the never-ending process of learning. Long Live CITK !!!”
