New Delhi: Mohammad Aamir Ali, a student of Diploma in Mechanical Engg. (2015-2018 Batch), has been selected by Frisson Motor Werks, Charlotte, North Carolina, USA as Battery Management System Engineer on an annual salary package of one lakh dollars. The amount is equivalent to Rs.70 Lakh per annum (approx.). This is the highest salary package for any Diploma Engineering student of JMI since its inception. Amir would be leaving for US by December this year.
Amir’s story is a tale of consistent hard work and passion to do something innovative. He belongs to a very humble background. Amir’s father Shamshad Ali works as an electrician in Jamia Millia Islamia. Shamshad Ali says, “Amir used to ask such kind of questions related to functioning of electrical equipment and electricity that I could not answer despite being an electrician for so many years. I always advised him to do hard work and today I’m very happy for what he has achieved.”
Despite scoring good marks in JMI school board examinations, Amir could not succeed in getting admission in B.Tech course for three consecutive years. After his first failed attempt to get admission in B.Tech course, he took admission in Diploma Engineering and tried two more attempts for B.Tech, but could not succeed. Then he concentrated on his project on Pre Electric Car and got appreciation from various quarters of the industry.
While speaking to PRO of Jamia, Amir said, “Electric vehicles are my passion. Charging infrastructure is the basic problem faced by electric vehicles in India. If I will succeed in my research, the cost of charging of electric vehicles will come down to almost zero.”
Amir completed his project under the guidance of Mr. Waqar Alam, Assistant Professor, University Polytechnic and Dr. Prabhash Mishra, Assistant Director, Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship(CIE). Prof. Zeeshan Hussain, Director of the CIE promoted the project at various levels and got it uploaded on the university website.
Frisson Motor Werks, USA got to know about Amir’s project through JMI’s website and it approached the University. After one month of communication through Linkedin, Skype and rigorous telephonic interview of Amir, the company decided to hire Amir as Battery Management System Engineer. University’s placement officer Mr. Rihan Khan Suri coordinated the whole process.
