Sankesh studied electrical engineering and power systems at the Illinois Institute of Technology. While completing his master’s, he attended a career fair hosted by the college. Sankesh was excited to come across the KDM booth, as it was one of very few companies hiring international students. After interviewing, he became even more sure he’d hit the jackpot.
Sankesh's job as an engineer involves a variety of tasks, from creating and editing supporting documents to going on what he calls "walk-downs" for individual projects, interacting with key stakeholders to ensure clear communication. He also liaises with the construction crews, making certain that everything is built according to plan.
