Seetha Lakshmi graduated in 1972 from the College of Engineering, Guindy (CEG), with a degree in electronics and communication engineering. She went on to get a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Texas, Austin (the first woman Ph.D. from CEG!).
I had the honor of presenting a webinar on Women’s empowerment to 80+ Tamilians – members of San Francisco Tamil Manram & Sacramento Tamil Manram and some Tamil friends.
You can watch the recording of the webinar or browse the slides.
In the 1940s, Lalitha didn’t know she was making history. But she did – as the first woman engineer of India, and the first woman to graduate from the oldest Indian technical institution, my Alma mater, College of Engineering, Guindy (CEG), University of Madras.
