Hi, I’m Neel, a recent (2020) graduate of the Design Engineering MEng at Imperial College London.
Design Engineering is a new degree that combines creative and technical disciplines within a culture of innovation and enterprise.
I have skills in fundamental engineering and design which I have synthesised in a broad range of projects to make products, services, and experiences. In 2019, I undertook a 6 month internship within Floorcare New Product Development at Dyson.
During my time at Imperial, I have undertaken a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities from work shadowing at Cisco, demoing research in 3D audio at the V&A, to working with my cohort in roles as a wellbeing and social representative. I have also collaborated with academic staff to shape the Design Engineering curriculum.
As part of my broader interest in the powerful applications of design thinking with engineering knowledge, I have passions for music / sound technology and sustainable design. Music is a big part of my life: I have worked with Dr Lorenzo Picinali on the acoustics of our department building, play, write and record for guitar and piano, and have taken three co-curricular courses on music and sound technology at Imperial. I was also Chair (2018-19) and Treasurer (2019-20) of Imperial College’s Alternative Music Society
Above all, I love making things, physical, digital or otherwise. And I have no intention of letting my creative energy rest anytime soon.
What's so great about Design Engineering? Here's my winning entry to the Design Engineering society's 2018 undergraduate video competition on what I love about Design Engineering:
