The son of electrician working at Jamia Millia Islamia, could not afford an architecture course, but today, has bagged a job offer from an American firm, paying him Rs 70 lakh per year.

Mohammad Aamir Ali is the son of Shamshad Ali, who works as an electrician at Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi. Mohammed Aamir scored high marks in the board exam at Jamia Millia Islamia. But even after trying for three consecutive years, he could not clear B-Tech course at Jamia. Even though he wanted to pursue a course in architecture at NIT Jharkhand, he could not afford the fee.

But in 2015, he pursued mechanical engineering in JMI. He got interested in the method of charging electric vehicles. Thus he developed a new theory in this regard and tried to provide chargers for electric vehicles, which will be cost-effective.

Sadly, no one believed in his potential, until one of his professors Waqar Alam (assistant professor) guided Aamir in this regard. Following this, Aamir prepared a prototype of the same and presented it at the Talimi Mela held in Jamia Millia.

After receiving positive responses, he then sent it to Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE). Zeeshan Hussain, director of CIE liked the idea and promoted the project and at last it was uploaded on the JMI university website.

Frisson Motor Werks, Charlotte, North Carolina, an automobile company based in the US noticed this idea and contacted the university for details on the maker of it. They instantly offered a job with Rs 70 lakh package as the battery management system engineer.

His father Shamshad was seen telling the media that though he was an electrician himself, most of the time, he could not answer the complicated questions Aamir Ali would ask in his young age.
