Telangana's youngest engineer

A 16-year-old girl has become Telangana's youngest woman engineer. Kasibhatta Samhitha graduated in electrical electronics with a GPA of 8.85.


She thanked the Telangana government for helping her get a seat in the college, Chaitanya Bharathi Institute of Technology (CBIT).

Kasibhatta told ANI, "I want to get into the (Power) sector to serve the country and bring it at par with rest of the world. I cleared class 10 at the age of 10 years. I secured 8.8 GPA in 10th and 89 per cent in Intermediate. I then approached the government for pursuing engineering as I needed age relaxation. I opted for electrical and electronics engineering which I cleared with 8.85 GPA."

Bright mind since a young age


Kasibhatta was a bright child since her early years. At the age of four, she unexpectedly completed her Class IV. Also, at the age of 10, she was finished with her Class 10th boards. She scored 8.8 GPA in the exams. She then went on to do an intermediate course from Nalanda Junior College, scoring 89%.

The prodigy was also exempted from appearing for the engineering, agriculture and medical common entrance test (Eamcet). With her BTech completed, she now aims to do MTech. After that, she wishes to join the power sector and bring about reforms

"I feel that there could be more developments done in the power sector of India that is the reason I want to be a part of it. My next plan is to do M.Tech and if the government allows I want to start my research," she said, Business Standard reported.


Parents elated

The proud parents talked about their daughter's dedication and capabilities. Samhitha's father LN Kasibhatta said, "It's really a very proud moment for us. We saw her memory power at the age three where she was able to name the country and capital of the world. The next step for her is to pursue masters in technology and we are expecting the support of state and central government so that she can start doing her research," Business Standard reported.

Her mother, Githa Chaturvedula, project manager with Tech-Mahindra, told TOI, “She is equally good at sketching and music. She has won many awards for her achievements.''
