Presidential Global Fellow

April 28, 2017

Congratulations to Mohit Bhardwaj, E’17/S’17, combined major in mechanical engineering and physics, mathematics minor, for being selected as a Presidential Global Fellow. Designation as a Presidential Global Fellow is given on the basis of students’ academic standing, leadership qualities, and understanding of the importance of the global experience to their education, personal development, and career goals. Presidential Global Fellows are chosen by a selection committee from a group of up to 200 Presidential Global Scholars, and the selection must be approved by the president.

Mohit has had unique global experiences throughout his life, as a student of Indian ethnicity who was raised in Zambia and came to the U.S. for the first time to study at Northeastern. For one of his three co-ops, Mohit traveled to the Netherlands, where he gained fresh insights into how different cultures understand and apply engineering principles. This co-op, he said, made him more “aware, adaptive, and open-minded.” He is now passionate about encouraging students in technical fields to work internationally to expand their understanding of how they fit into our increasingly global society.
