IIT Women and Career
By Shubha Maudgal
Mrs. Shubha Maudgal one of the senior most members in our Association talks about women and career narrating her story from the days as a student at IIT to where she is today.
I got my MS in Chemistry from IIT Delhi in 1979 and was awarded the Director’s silver medal for standing first in my discipline. Throughout my education I held the National Science Talent Scholarship right up to my PhD, which I completed in 1983 from IIT Bombay. Subsequently, I worked for 15 years in the field I had trained in, namely high temperature resistant polymers. I worked at NASA, Langley Research Centre, USA; at Johnson & Johnson, Mumbai; at the Aeronautical Development Establishment (DRDO, Ministry of Defence), Bangalore and finally at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK where I helped create standards for the materials I had done my research on. I had 20+ publications in international journals, 2 US patents and several measurement notes to my credit.
