I have a clear understanding of student needs and their way of thinking. I am experienced in coordinating and supporting onboarding students and staff including orientations. Furthermore, I would support EIT and students in building a strong and smooth bridge/link between EIT and students as well as support various initiatives. Moreover, I particularly enjoy partaking in voluntary services and have been involved in a range of public events and national sporting occasions such as 15th Asian Games, 3rd West Asian Games, Social Media Coordinator, and Class Representative during my Bachelor's studies atuniversity, etc.

Hi, My name is Suman Gill. I am from Hisar, India which is home to the largest Agricultural University in Asia.
I am a Masters student in Information Technology.
I have worked for MNCs as a Frontend Developer for more than 5 years and have grown a lot during my professional stint with various skillsets like Javascript, Wordpress and IONIC.
I am passionate about photography and athletics which helped me throughout my career in maintaining focus and determination for various projects.
 I love the outdoors and like trekking, cycling and camping and hopefully can organize these for our student body.
I also believe in presenting one’s learning before large audiences as mastering stage fear is a skill known to few and hence I’d be keen on taking forward the Speechmasters – EIT’s very own version of Toastmasters!
I’m approachable, friendly and believe in genuine relationships that bring out the best in both parties. Here’s me signing off while looking forward to connecting with all of you to discuss academic and personal hurdles so that I can help in improving your learning and growth while at EIT.
