Tegjyot Singh Sethi
Doctoral computer engineering and computer science student at the University of Louisville
During his time at the University of Louisville J.B. Speed School of Engineering Tegjyot Singh Sethi got hands-on experience working with industry via a very prestigious internship with technology company, Google.
As a doctoral student under faculty advisor Dr. Mehmed Kantardzic, Sethi worked two summers as a software engineering intern at Google Search. There, he got to help improve the music action for the search engine’s knowledge panel, which lists links to third-party apps when you search for music-related entities.
“The internship helped me to develop sound development skills and enabled me to design and undertake large projects with confidence,” Sethi said. “It also enabled me to develop my network and reach out to my peers to understand my place in the industry.”
Sethi said working with industry is a huge benefit for students, because it allows them to better understand the needs of the world of work they’re about to enter. This is especially true, he said, when students get to be involved in high-impact projects that challenge them to learn new skills.
