Major: Electronics and Communication

Nitesh completed his bachelor's degree in Electronics and Telecommunications at Vellore Institute of Technology in 2015. In his senior year he completed his thesis on developing compact microstrip antennas for cellular applications using CSRR structures.

Though his undergraduate education was academically challenging, Nitesh was always interested in exploring the business aspect of technology.

For his capstone thesis project, he is working with Precision X-Ray (an IGRT cabinet and X-ray irradiators manufacturing firm based out of Branford, CT) to develop customized cancer treatment equipment for pets. With this project Nitesh and Precision X-Ray hope to bring down the cost of cancer treatment for pet dogs and cats, thus enabling them to live longer and happier lives. Through the experiential learning model of the ESTEEM Program Nitesh hopes to develop business skills with a focus on emerging technologies and entrepreneurship.  He would like to align these skills with his technical skills in order to help companies excel.
