Sridhar Iyengar graduated with a B. Tech in Chemical Engineering at Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur. In the 3rd year of his undergraduate career, his interest in the field of energy and environmental sciences burgeoned after viewing a PowerPoint slide on the impacts of climate change. This inspired him to do more research on environmental issues through projects, literature, and additional courses. In the summer prior to applications for school began, he was able to perform research under Dr. Anish Modi from the Department of Energy Sciences and Engineering in the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. It was a memorable experience as he gained knowledge on the land and water footprints of Solar, Wind and Biomass energy technologies with regard to electricity generation. After this experience, he was sure of what he wanted to do in life, and began checking out the best schools to apply to nurture his skillset. Of all the programs that he came across, Bren School stood out the most due to its interdisciplinary approach and he felt he could find himself at Bren and eventually make a career out of something he loves. He is specializing in Energy and Climate and Corporate Environmental Management to gain a strong foothold in the field of renewable energy, and to understand the intricacies of global energy and climate policies. He hopes that he can make a real difference and would love to live in a carbon neutral world by the end of the century!
