She graduated from R.M.K.Engineering College (Anna University) in 2020 with her bachelor’s in Electronics and Communications Engineering.
Swetha was part of the FY22 Collegiate Leadership Institute (CLI) cohort. Her experience transformed her life adding that CLI, “gave me a sense of community, even virtually, to be surrounded by other female engineers at various levels in their collegiate life…it helped me recognize and develop leadership traits and competencies that are applicable both now, while in college, and for the next steps in my professional career.”
As you read this, Swetha is on her way into her journey of becoming a professional engineer when she graduates. What got her there was not only her personal drive and perseverance, but the SWE community who provided her the resources and support to succeed.
