Kiran Burugupalli


I’m Kiran from India, and I am elated to start my master’s journey at NC State. I chose entrepreneurship as my concentration. I completed my undergrad in Mechanical Engineering and got 7 years of professional experience in the automotive industry. I worked at Nissan and Volvo as an interior plastic trim designer, so I’m well versed in product planning and development. I always aspire to be an entrepreneur. As I developed good product knowledge over the years, I needed to enhance my managerial/administration skills to start my career as a project/program manager and eventually reach my goals. so here I’m at NC State pursuing a master’s in engineering management.

Apart from my professional aspirations, I play badminton and love to watch and analyze movies. Cooking helps me to vent out my stress.
