Ph.D. thesis defense - Mahesh V.P.

Prof. Amit Arora with Dr. Mahesh VP

Mahesh VP successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis on Aluminum Matrix Friction Stir Surface Composites – Study on Mechanical and Electrochemical Performance. A doctoral degree is no mean feat. All those years of hard work, exhaustion, self-doubt and tenacity culminate in the Ph.D. Everybody, be a part of the exhilaration of a Doctor by wishing Mahesh.

Officially, Dr. Mahesh now!

From Supervisor’s pen: It has been wonderful witnessing Mahesh’s dissertation in the making from close by and watching him very successfully present his work at meetings and conferences. All leading up to this very special moment! Best of luck in all your future endeavors, wherever these may take you. - Amit Arora
