Third-year electrical engineering student Dipixa Sharma has been awarded a place in the Startup Semester at the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology of the University of California Berkeley.

Dipixa will attend a five-month program where she will cover modules in blockchain, FinTech, AI, IoT and other emerging technologies that are driving social change. She will also choose electives from technology entrepreneurship, product management or product design and technology firm leadership.

The program is organised by UC Berkeley’s College of Engineering and entrepreneurs from the Berkeley and Silicon Valley ecosystem. Dipixa’s trip has been partly sponsored by the School, the Faculty and UOW’s Global Initiatives program.

Congratulations, Dipixa! We look forward to the report.
