What he does now: Is pursuing his Masters in Sustainable Energy from the University of Glasgow.
Aniruddha Chhatre is a University Innovation Fellow. He underwent his training during his undergraduate study at KLS Gogte Institute of Technology, Belgaum, India. He completed both his schooling and Pre- University from Belgaum, and is currently in the University of Glasgow for his postgraduation in the field of Sustainable Energy. Aniruddha has excelled in both academic and co curricular activities and won accolades at various college level competitions. He has taken part in various events and competitions since his school days, and always tries to participate in as many events as possible in college fests. He has an inclination towards sports and physical activities, and has represented his college at a district level lawn tennis tournament.
He has served as the Public Relations Director and Secretary, and President at the Rotaract Club of Belgaum Central consecutively. This has enabled him to meet people from varying backgrounds and exchange ideas with them. Being the President, he had the responsibility of organising events along with the club members that develop leadership and professional skills. Service is a big part of Rotaract clubs, and is an excellent platform to do good for the underprivileged. Aniruddha is also a part of the Institute Innovation Council at his college. Being a part of the UIF program and undergoing training has led to him interacting with students and faculty, and he strives to encourage more students to engage in design thinking by organising events along with his team. He attended the International Summer School at University of Strathclyde, Glasgow and this gave him an opportunity to learn their culture and the way their education system works. He aims to make use of that experience and make others in his college aware of some of the methodology that was taught.
He likes to sketch in his free time, and has a dedicated Instagram page towards his charcoal sketches. He also loves to travel, particularly to places rich in natural beauty. Aniruddha also has a interest in graphic design and is pursuing a short course on the same. He follows tennis and football with great interest, and also enjoys playing FIFA and taking part in gaming tournaments.
He believes in the saying “Fear no one but respect everyone", as quoted by his idol Roger Federer.
