Like many of us, Faisal Khan grew up idolizing his father, who was a civil engineer in Hyderabad. Accompanying his father to various work sites, young Faisal would curiously watch skyscrapers emerging out of flat surfaces. At a very young age, Faisal knew what he wanted to be in life - like father, like son - a civil engineer. When he finished his schooling at Hyderabad Public School in 2012, Faisal had many choices, as there was no scarcity of premier engineering colleges offering a civil engineering program. However, taking his father's advice, Faisal decided to join Nalla Malla Reddy Engineering College (NMREC), which was about to start Civil Engineering course in that year.

"It was a tough call. Although NMREC was an old college and a reputed one, their Civil Engineering department was completely new. Being in the industry for about 25 years, my father knew where exactly I would fit in to fulfill my ambitions. He has never been wrong," says Faisal. Today, Faisal is working in EMP Infrastructure as a project engineer and it is hard for him put a full stop to his conversation once he starts talking about his college life. He adds, "As a civil engineering aspirant, the first thing I noticed about NMREC was its infrastructure. The college has all the facilities required for a student to pursue the studies and to probe into the depths of the subjects by doing projects or research. I got the opportunity to work with advanced equipment, which was not available for the students from other engineering colleges in the state."

Despite being a new branch, the Civil Engineering Department of NMREC is one of the active groups indulged in research works in the campus.

Set up amidst lush green natural surroundings with a true pearly white building, the NMREC is hardly 16 kilometers away from the center of the city of Hyderabad. The college was taken over by Nalla Malla Reddy Education Society and is operating in the current location since 2006 with a view to providing quality education. "Our basic philosophy is to provide quality technical education with thorough practical knowledge. We have the entire infrastructure necessary for the curriculum and provide extra facilities and research centers to imbibe research culture, and give more exposure to the students," says Dr. Divya Nalla, Principal, NMREC.
