Mridula Manderwad

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Software Engineering
“One of the biggest support systems for me was the AUT talenthub, which helps students look for internships and graduate roles. Not only do they make sure you’re right for the role you’re applying for, but they also make sure that the company is a good fit.”
