Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate

Hello, I'm Krishen

I am a third-year undergrad at Taylor’s University, studying Mechanical Engineering, with a minor in Project Management.

To cultivate multidisciplinary skills, I actively engage in projects during my semester breaks.

My interests lie in the worlds of engineering, data analytics and project management. I am keen to apply my skills to complex workflows.

Throughout my experience, I have gathered a skillset in mechanical design, product development and data analytics.

This site is my portfolio containing the projects and skills I have worked on.
