Kalyani Agnihotri Master's Candidate

Hometown: Bangalore

Where did you go for undergrad and what did you major in?

I studied Architecture Design at M.S. Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore

Why did you choose to attend DURP at UIUC?

DURP at UIUC was one of my top choices for graduate school as it was ranked as the 3rd best planning school in the US and it provided its students with a comprehensive approach towards planning. The faculty are very supportive and helpful and they not only aim to make us excellent planners, but conscientious too.

What are your career ambitions?

As an architect, I believed that by improving the built environment, I can help change the way people live and work. Through my work experiences, I learned that planning would be a better and comprehensive method to achieve a more livable environment. DURP at UIUC has helped me further identify my interests in land use planning, transportation and urban design. My vision has always been to merge the disciplines of architecture and planning in my professional practice and I would like to work towards this goal. My recent internship experience has been a great influence on my choice to work for the public sector.
