Hyderabad: Sneha Jain, who is currently pursuing her Masters in Building Science Research at IIIT-Hyderabad has been awarded an internship that will allow her to work at the prestigious Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), USA for six months. The Building Energy Efficiency Higher And Advanced Network (BHAVAN) internship is the result of collaborative efforts between the Department of Science and Technology, Govt of India and the Indo-US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) with the aim of providing avenues of collaboration between students and scientists from India and the US.Tech giant Google to add new feature soon,You can text through web.
12 students from INDIA:
Only 12 students were selected for the internship from all over India, Sneha’s research on strategies to minimize glare and overheating in buildings has given her the opportunity to intern under the guidance of Christian Kohler, the head of the Building Technology department at LBNL.

Kohler, who incidentally visited IIIT Hyderabad last year, has spent the last two decades on research in improving building energy efficiency using state-of-the-art intelligent facades and daylighting technologies integrated with lighting controls and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems.
The journey of Sneha Jain:
From Neemuch in Madhya Pradesh, 25-year-old Sneha was encouraged and in turn drawn towards academia from the very start by her father, a school principal. After obtaining her Bachelor’s degree in Architecture, Sneha’s interest was towards the research aspects of technical performance of buildings.
“It is an interdisciplinary course that includes elements of construction technology, illumination engineering, architecture, meteorology, sustainable building, and heat and mass transport physics”, said Sneha, adding that there are very few institutes in India that offer such a course. Sneha will be moving to California this month.
