Ashiq Ameer – Testimonial

I, Ashiq Ameer, am graduated from Karpagam Academy of Higher Education, one of the top colleges in Coimbatore with a bachelor’s degree  in Architecture in 2016. Stepping foot  in  the institution,  where  I learnt  the  best  part  about  myself as a  human  being, proved to  be  the  first  right  step  in  my  career. The college has made a lot of difference in me and the professors at Karpagam Architecture, one of the top Architecture colleges in Coimbatore provided an experiential learning to the students. Interning  at  two distinctively  vibrant  firms  –  Qatar  Design  Consortium  (QDC)  in  Doha, Qatar  and  Ar.  K. C George  Associates in  Cochin, Kerala  –  were  my  baby  steps in the  field  of architecture as  I got  to experience  and  witness  a  variety  of  projects  while  undertaking  challenging  responsibilities. A year’s  work  experience  as an architect  at  Manhal International  Engineering, Qatar kick-started  my career,  which  I believe  is  the  best  I could  have  asked for, and  I am  eternally  grateful for it.

Having  always been  a rover, I later  decided  to  follow  my  instincts  to  prove  –  as  well as explore  – myself by  pursuing  my  dire  desire  to  become  an  actor.  By  God’s grace,  paired  with  undying determination, a  year and  a half down the  line,  I handled  lead roles  in  two  different films, namely  ‘E  –  The  Movie’  (March  2018)  and  ‘Oridathumillaathoridam’  (September  2018),  which  gave me  a new  perspective  towards life. I then went  on  to  try  my  hands in  music, singing  and  some  of  my other passions. Karpagam Architecture, one of the best colleges of Architecture in Coimbatore played a vital role in escalating my interests other than education also. Following  a  short  sabbatical, in  January  2019, I  joined  Al  Sadeel Trading  &  Contracting, Qatar  as  a junior architect  before  being  soon promoted  as an architect-cum-project  coordinator.

Having  gained diverse  experience  in the  field, combined  with  vigorous team  effort,  we  are  now  set  to  take  the next step  in enhancing  the  standards and  expanding  our company. Although  a  lot  has happened  since I stepped  out  of  Karpagam Architecture, one of the best colleges of Architecture in India, I look  back  at  those  five years in  the  institution  as  the  period  that laid  foundations to  who  I  am  today  –  whether  it  be  a striving  architect  or  a  curious gipsy. I will never forget whatever I have learnt from the institution, both professionally and personally. I am hereby perpetually  thankful  to  the  Almighty.
