Assamese girl selected for top French masters program

Priyanka Das has secured admission in the Master's program in Ecole Polytechnique, Paris with two scholarships covering tuition and living expenses. An outstanding student all throughout, currently she is pursuing BSc with Physics Honours from St Stephen's College, Delhi. She was all round performer in Class-XII from The Mother's International School, New Delhi. She is a good artist and can speak French.

Ecole Polytechnique is renowned for its four-year undergraduate/graduate Master's program called the Ingénieur program which attracts the strongest students from the famously selective entrance exam with a broad scientific education, and opens the way for many of them to careers in positions of influence in government, industry, finance, and research.

Priyanka is one of the first Assamese students to get admitted into this famous institute which is quite high in world rankings. She is the daughter of Manoj Kr Das, DGM in NEDFi and Dr Ajanta B Das, Sr Medical Officer in Delhi Health Service.

Ecole polytechnique actually runs a masters in association with certain universities - do not think it is worlds top master programme.
