This is part of an ongoing series called “Meet the Board,” where we spotlight PSWE’s executive board members. Today, we feature Krithika Subramaniam, our Professional Networking Director.
1. Why did you join SWE?
I joined SWE for the support system. I think it’s important to encourage women
in engineering, and it’s amazing to be surrounded by motivated and inspirational people!
2. What show are you currently watching on Netflix/TV?
Hidden Figures has easily become my favorite movie — I’ve watched it twice already. But in terms of the current show I’m binge-watching on Netflix, I’m on another round of watching The Office.
3. How did you choose your major?
I really enjoyed chemistry, math, and physics in high school, so Chemical Engineering
seemed to be the best fit for me. I also chose this major because of its magnitude — there are opportunities in every field!
4. What is your favorite thing to do on campus?
Honestly, I love randomly running into friends on campus! It’s definitely something I’ll really miss once I graduate.
5. How did you choose Purdue?
I’ve lived in West Lafayette since the age of 2, so choosing Purdue was a no-brainer.
6. What is your favorite food?
I love all kinds of Thai food and sushi!
