Arvind can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I am an Electrical Engineer from India. I did my Bachelor’s degree in India at from Anna University. I worked for three years in India designing power electronics equipment before I realized that I needed to learn more and broaden my views. So, I came to Stockholm, Sweden for my Master’s degree at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. After my Master’s, I wanted to be part of a company which had global presence and an international work culture. Also, I wanted to have an opportunity to be surrounded by highly skilled and passionate individuals from all around the world. I am happy to say that, I found all I wanted in BT.
