Student Profile: Simranjot Singh Sran
Digital Media master's student in the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology
I am an engineer-designer, a cinephile, PM and a storyteller on a mission to create happiness, trying to innovate ways on how digital media can improve people's lives. I do whatever needs to be done for the team to deliver successful products. I am fortunate to wear multiple hats and work across versatile markets of IoT, Automotive, Fintech, Ed-Tech, and Air Purifier companies. My role included strategizing, designing and leading product, tech and business teams to develop games and digital AI & ML products (AR/VR, responsive web apps, microsites) for B2B & B2C markets.

I firmly believed that the graduate program would eminently contribute to my intellect and will be a perfect mix of knowledge and specialization acquirement for me.
