Khazanchi, from New Delhi, India, accepted an offer as a user experience designer on Microsoft's "Mixed Reality at Work" team out of the Redmond, Wash., office. The job comes after interning last summer at Microsoft, where she prototyped virtual reality (VR) solutions designed to prevent exclusion in the aging community and was part of a team whose VR app took third place in the inclusive design challenge category during Microsoft’s annual hackathon.
She lauded RIT's role in preparing her for these opportunities.
“The coursework in new media design has given me an extremely strong base in design principles and process,” Khazanchi said. “RIT turned out to be the perfect combination of technology and creativity for me. New media design is a one-of-its-kind program — we learn how to design, illustrate, animate as well as code and bring those designs to life.”
