        (i) Introduction considering your resume.(i.e. your projects, achievements, field of interest, motivation etc.)
        (ii) Logical understanding: Various statistical graphs (e.g. normal distribution curve) were given. I was given a design failure problem related to it. Using graph I had to show a probable solution region in the graph.
        (iii) Picture understanding: I was shown a picture and had to identify the system.(It was a front propeller system of conventional aircraft. It was containing a propeller, gear box, blade angle shifting mechanism, its lubrication system, various valves etc.)
        (iv) Few topics (around 10) were written on a paper. I had to choose one topic and had to explain it in detail with examples.(one of the topic: Design optimization)
        (v) Chit-chat: They will ask you about their company. You can also ask your doubts.(So be prepared with at least 2-3 questions which you can ask them.)
        Interview Tips
        Your course projects, BTP & MTP carries a HUUUUUGE weight. Try to attach each project with a motivation behind their execution. They don't consider depth of research but they do like it if you have a proper reason behind selecting it. and most important of all Keep your head cool.
