Sheel Sansare

My name is Sheel and I’m a first-year MS student in the Structural Engineering program. I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and did my undergrad in CEE with a minor in CS at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I have structural engineering experience at Magnusson Klemencic Associates and Kiewit, and general civil engineering experience at IDOT.

I’m taking this course to learn how to implement parametric design through programing as I think this will be the main workflow for structural engineers and designers in the future. My goal for this class is to implement a generative design workflow that I can use for future projects.

Additionally, I’m highly interested in entrepreneurship and am currently working on a project related to construction document control using NLP so if this is something you may be interested in I’d love to chat. Besides that, I enjoy playing soccer and spikeball, eating good food, and playing music.
