Suren Ulaganathan

Biography

Suren Ulaganathan first heard about NCPRE through C.K. Gunsalus when he took her engineering leadership class as an undergraduate in chemical engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  The class greatly complemented his understanding of engineering and the goals he wanted to achieve in the engineering domain. After graduation he joined NCPRE as a Project Associate to further explore this field, for half a year.

Suren is now pursuing a master’s in petroleum engineering at The University of Texas at Austin (UT).  He writes:  “The knowledge gained at NCPRE has helped me negotiate graduate school and life more successfully – where paths are more strewn with ethical and moral dilemmas than college. Furthermore, as a TA for engineering communication at UT, I have been able to pass this knowledge to numerous undergraduate engineering students.”
