The PTU Glossary


Hello. If you've clicked on our blog these past few months you may have said to yourself "the hell? This isn't the Punjabi Technical Institute! Tomorrow's orientation, God damn it!". But if you're not an Indian engineering student and you stuck around long enough to actually read something that one of us wrote, then you may have said to yourself "What's with these guys and their funny lingo? What are they talking about?". Well, you're in luck, today we'll shed a little light on some of the words that may have had you scratching your head, if not clicking your mouse in disgust.
