Tanushree Sengupta '17
Tanushree Sengupta is an industrial designer and mechanical engineer from New York.
Her motivation to pursue mechanical engineering came from her love of making things. Her undergraduate program provided her with an invaluable education in mechanics, which she then used to inform the products that she designs. While she enjoyed her undergraduate experience, she felt it wasn't enough. In her words, "The pedagogy didn't touched on why we were making the objects we were making, never spoke of form, context, or challenged our notion of how to interact with these objects".
In the winter of 2015, Tanshuree learned about industrial design, and product design, and she realized that "this was the field that would fill the gap in my education". Thus, she embarked on a new path to complete her understanding of what it means to make a product, both technically and artistically.
