Meet A Current Student

Nirmal Bhatt

Nirmal Bhatt

"As an international student, I was confident that I could find a home away from home in Starkville.”

Meet Senior Mechanical Engineering major Nirmal Bhatt from Collierville, Tennessee.

Nirmal’s drive to pursue a Mechanical Engineering degree was fueled by his passion for math and science to create solutions for the world’s problems. In his words, “I found that studying Mechanical Engineering would give me a broad understanding of the profession and teach me to solve problems through critical thinking.”

Many students have multiple choices in where they attend school. As a non-resident student, Nirmal decided on MSU because of his campus visit. According to him, “When I first visited this campus, I found the people of MSU to be warm and welcoming. As an international student, I was confident that I could find a home away from home in Starkville. MSU’s engineering curriculum is also rigorous and well known, and I knew I would be prepared to work as an engineer in the workplace if I graduated from MSU.”

It is definitely encouraged for each student to enrich and diversify their educational experience while they are here at MSU. There are multiple ways to be involved whether it’s competition teams, service organizations, or research. Nirmal is currently involved with our Space Cowboys rocket building team, Engineering Recruitment Leaders, our Speech and Debate Team, and he is conducting research.

Here are a couple of fun facts from Nirmal:

  • Favorite spot on campus: The Drill Field
  • Favorite place to eat in Starkville: Stromboli’s

Fun fact he wishes every student knew: “Over 100 companies come to our Career Expos and opportunities are available for all majors!”

Noteworthy Achievements

Bethel named among worldwide leaders in robotics

A Mississippi State computer science and engineering professor has been recognized as one of the world’s top leaders in the field of robotics.

Cindy Bethel, a professor in Mississippi State’s James Worth Bagley College of Engineering, has been named as one of the “World’s 50 Most Renowned Women in Robotics” by Analytics Insight magazine. The recognition comes in the magazine’s June 2020 edition.

“I am surprised and deeply honored to be selected,” Bethel said. “I am excited to be named along with all of these talented and amazing women in robotics and to be recognized in such a wonderful way.”

According to the magazine, Analytics Insight selected “the top 50 dynamic women in the robotics industry who are leading their way to unprecedented excellence. These innovative leaders are excelling beyond the prevailing gender-diversity challenges and revolutionizing how the mechanism of robots is being leveraged to bring about transformation.”
