Kiran Raj Rajan was born to be an engineer, being raised in a family of electrical engineering businessmen. However, his life took an unusual twist when faced with the decision of following in his father’s footsteps (joining his company) or striking out on his own. He chose the latter. This new path led him to EIT InnoEnergy Master's programme in Sustainable Energy Systems (SELECT), where he found the perfect catalyst to pursue his passion for combining social work with engineering. Now he has landed an engineer’s dream job working as an electrical integrator at ASML B.V. in the Netherlands. We caught up with Kiran to hear about this exciting job and find out if his new path is everything he’d envisioned.
