GradPost Features MTM Student Siddharth Sahu

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Siddharth grew up in the bustling city of Mumbai, India, and he said that he has "always taken pride in being part of one of the most happening places on the world map." He pursued an undergraduate degree in Electronics Engineering at the University of Mumbai and ultimately earned a Masters of Engineering in Embedded Systems from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, one of the elite institutions in India. He then went on to become a senior engineer at Finisar Corporation and ​is now joining UCSB's Technology Management Program. In the program, he hopes to ​enhance ​his technical profile with essential management skills and draw on the broad network of advisors and mentors that UCSB has to offer.

When he's not taking the engineering world by storm, Siddharth loves to travel all over the ​Asian sub-continent, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong, and Macau. "It is indeed a refreshing experience to explore new places and to come across different cultures and some wonderful sects of people and places," he said. He also describes himself as a "fitness freak" and enjoys such diverse activities as ​cricket, badminton, running, cycling, swimming, adventure sports, and trekking.
