The science fests and camps I attended during my childhood and my love for physics lead me to pursue my Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering at Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute (VJTI). To achieve my goal of working in the Automotive industry, I undertook Automotive Design projects and internships during my undergraduate studies. I gained practical knowledge and experience in Mechanical System Design, FEA, Manufacturing, Assembly, and Quality Assurance of Automotive components through my projects and internships. During my B. Tech final year project, my inclination towards automotive Design and Manufacturing increased and soon became my passion. This zeal further developed when I started working as an associate engineer and designed truck and bus chassis components for SCANIA in the Trucks and Off-Highway sector of L&T Technology Services Bangalore, India. Now, I am pursuing my master’s degree in Automotive Engineering at Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CUICAR). At CUICAR, I continue to learn advanced topics in Automotive Body Design and Manufacturing through the course work, course projects, and my research project. As a graduate research assistant, I am working on a force sensor glove for BMW to ensure the hose connection between the coolant pipe and the engine is made correctly by the associate working on the assembly line.
