I am Samrudhi Inamdar. I have a Bachelor of Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering from Savitribai Phule Pune University, India, where I was among the top 10 rankers in my department. Followed by that, I completed my Masters in Astronautics and Space Engineering from Cranfield University, UK. I am currently working as a Project Engineer at ALTEN, UK on a Rolls-Royce Aero Engine project, here I serve as an Avionics Verification and Validation (V&V) Engineer. I have previously worked with Tata Communications Limited in India.

Apart from my job, I volunteer with a few organizations. I am serving as Vice President – Internal Relations at the European Young Engineers. I am also associated with Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and UK Students for Exploration and Development of Space (UKSEDS). I am volunteering as a citizen scientist at NASA on the GLOBE program.

In 2022, I was awarded the Bright Sparks award which recognizes 30 young and most talented engineers in the UK and for this reason, I was featured in the Electronics Weekly magazine. I was also chosen as a delegate at the 67th session of the Commission on the Status of Women, which was held in the UK and hosted by UN Women. Recently, I was invited as an Ambassador for the Women for Future Ambassadors Programme at Home of Cricket Lord’s Cricket Ground to mentor and assist young schoolgirls as they prepare for their future careers. This event was hosted by Women of the Future Programme in association with TSB Bank to recognise the need to inspire today’s young generation of women.

My hobbies include painting and dancing. I am a trained artist in Indian Classical Dance – Bharatnatyam. I hold a diploma in Bharatnatyam from Gandharva Mahavidyala, India. I am currently associated with Surtal Arts where I am serving as a Board Member (in a volunteer role) to promote art.

I am passionate to empower woman in every walk of life and would like to help and guide them in any way possible. I enjoy working towards upliftment of women, specially those pursuing career in STEM.

In addition to this, I like public speaking, throughout my time in engineering college, I had the privilege of serving as the host for numerous events. I recently delivered a speech for International Women In Engineering Day (INWED) at my workplace in ALTEN. I was chosen as a speaker by my manager. I also served as a panellist for a webinar hosted by IChemE on the occasion of INWED.
