A little about Kshitij: "These past couple of semesters has been witness to my active involvement in various aspects of Rutgers Engineering. I try to give back to my society as much as I can by being involved with various projects and helping others with their classes.

Also, I recently won ASME Foundation Scholarship, a global scholarship from American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
