Innovation Scholarship Recipient Fall 2020: Ayush Shukla

Congratulations to third-year electrical engineering major, Ayush Shukla, this year’s recipient of the Outstanding Junior Scholarship! This coveted honor is awarded annually to an outstanding member of the junior class of our Eta Kappa Nu chapter, who has demonstrated a strong commitment to their field and community.

In recognition of his incredible achievement, here are a few words from Ayush:

“I’m Ayush Shukla, a third year undergraduate student at Georgia Tech, and I’m beyond appreciative to be a recipient of this year’s ECE Outstanding Junior Scholarship.

While I grew up in Wisconsin, I have found comfort in the city of Atlanta and with the Georgia Tech community. The prestige of Georgia Tech along with the constant innovation happening in today’s technology drove me to pursue my degree in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Computing & Intelligence. I have been involved on campus as both a Teaching Assistant and as an active member of our school’s IEEE Robotics team. Further, over the past two summers, I have interned at John Deere and Intel, both places where I have had the opportunity to work with the latest products in their industries. These experiences are ones that I will carry with me in my professional career. Additionally, beyond the realm of engineering I have served as VP of Finance for India Club as well as I am a member of the Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Society.

Following the completion of my undergrad I plan to pursue a Master’s in ECE focusing in the areas of embedded systems and controls. Beyond my academic life, I enjoy traveling with my friends, cooking new foods, and playing a variety of sports. All my experiences at Georgia Tech have excited me, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future of ECE has in store for us!”

Outstanding Junior Scholarship (Spring Semester)

The ECE Outstanding Junior Scholarship is an annual scholarship funded by the Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) chapter at Georgia Tech for students who are a junior by credit hours. The recipient of this scholarship is chosen not only based on scholarly achievements, but also for character, commitment to service fellow classmates, and contribution to the Georgia Tech community.

HKN would like to congratulate Amran Mamuye for her accomplishments and outstanding application for this scholarship. She has demonstrated the hard work and creativity that one needs to succeed at this school without losing her drive to help others in her community. One of her personal projects is building a mobile app based in Ethiopia that allocates blanket donations to those in need. Amran also gives back to her community by mentoring young minority girls in a program called STEM Power, where she helps them develop confidence and provides guidance with their STEM careers. Despite all of these commitments, she still stays very involved on campus. Amran is a member of Big Data Big Impact GT and is also a student assistant at Scheller’s IT services, where she helps faculty and students by troubleshooting hardware and software issues on-site and remotely. She has interned as a firmware engineer with AKXO and looks forward to interning at Facebook as a data engineer this summer. Amran truly embodies the spirit of Georgia Tech and HKN is proud to have her as a member of our community.
