Ishani Sud ’08, MPA/MEng ’12, graduated with a degree in chemical engineering with certificates in public policy, neuroscience, materials science and engineering biology. As an undergraduate, she worked with the Global Development Network to design and study low-cost energy and water solutions for developing communities in Africa and South America. She received the Joseph Clifton Elgin Prize and the Chemical Engineering Department’s Design Award at graduation. She interned with the U.S. Naval Forces-Japan in Yokosuka and was a technology analyst in Washington, D.C.. During her SINSI fellowship, Sud is interested in a range of international issues including health, technology and security. She returned to Princeton to complete a dual MPA/Master’s in Engineering degree.
As an engineering student, I was always drawn to service but was unaware of the many opportunities for engineers in the federal government. This program has opened my eyes to these opportunities while providing me with critical support and guidance to make the most of my experience. Princeton University’s dedication to service and the School’s dedication to this program make SINSI exceptional.
