I’m Aditya Murthy. I’m originally from Bangalore, India, and I stayed in Dubai pretty much my whole life (15 years!). I moved back to India for my undergraduate education. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the college of Engineering, Pune.
At Duke, I am pursuing a Masters’ degree in Mechanical Engineering. My specialization is Aerodynamics. The MEng program and the courses are absolutely great. It has been an incredible learning experience both inside and outside the classroom.
I was recently appointed as the new Student Manager at DUHatch, the student incubation center. DUHatch is a great resource for Duke students with an entrepreneurial inclination. As the student manager, my job will be to ensure that the student teams and businesses affiliated with DUHatch are able to utilize all the resources that the center has to offer while at the same time ensuring greater exposure for their businesses.
This role appeals to me because it exposes me to a wide array of great ideas. I find it interesting to see how an idea is converted into a revenue generating model. Having a keen interest in entrepreneurship myself, I think this will be a great learning experience for me.
I hope that you’ll explore all that DUHatch has to offer!
