A city-based engineering student brought laurels to the state by winning Google India Women in Engineering Award 2010. Kriti Sharma of Arya College of Engineering & Information Technology is among the eight girls who won this award.
Sharma had developed software for energy minimisation. “When we implemented the software in astrophysics, material science and polymers, the software gave exceptional results in energy minimisation,” Sharma said.
She was given away the award for her excellence in computer science and leadership. The award is meant only for women. The company also acknowledged leadership qualities of achievers in the computer science. The company selected winners on the basis of their academic background and qualities of leadership.
“In computer science, the representation of women is very less in comparison to men. I think it is roughly 1:10 and I have achieved a breakthrough with my ability,” Sharma said.
The Google India Women in Engineering Award aims to recognise and reward deserving women students in computer science and related majors, and inspire them to become active participants and leaders in creating technology. The awards are based on the candidates’ academic background and demonstrated leadership.
