This achievement calls for celebration. An Indian boy from Sikkim has been offered direct admission to the Staffordshire University on the basis of his eco-friendly vehicle design. One of the best and reputed universities in the field of vehicular engineering, the Staffordshire University was impressed by Deepak Gupta’s innovation.
On November 2010, Deepak showed off his eco-friendly vehicle design while he was studying in class XI at the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya at Rabong in South Sikkim. The vehicle works on the principle of Electro Magnetic Induction Magnetism (EMIM).
Deepak was then featured in various local and national electronic media and received an offer from theUKbased Virgo Communication Ltd in May last year.
They offered a monthly financial package of 7400 Pounds for two years to conduct further research on his design. But in order to complete his senior secondary education Deepak had rejected the offer.
After completing school, he applied to the Staffordshire University for BE Honors in Automotive Engineering along with his vehicle design. He promptly received a letter confirming his direct admission and was also allowed a Scholarship Scheme of 1000 Pounds for the academic year 2012-13.
Considering his financial status, the university also decided to charge around Rs 25 lakh for the whole course instead of the normal fee of Rs 60 lakh.
Hats off to you, Deepak!
