Priyanka Tuteja is the Director of Operations and Marketing for Cogmation Robotics, which she joined in 2015 as a Marketing Intern. Over the years, she undertook various roles including Executive Assistant to the General Manager and General Manager.
Prior to her time at Cogmation, Priyanka lived in India, where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree and a Master’s Degree in Electronics Science. Upon graduation, she worked as a Design Engineer for a Multinational company.
In 2014, Priyanka moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Wanting to put her business skills to the test, she enrolled in an International Business program at Red River College shortly afterwards. Knowing that she loved to teach, she naturally began to teach term courses in Electrical Engineering Technology at the college on occasion.
Priyanka is a new mom to a 21-month-old toddler who keeps her busy at home. She especially loves to travel, an interest that she’s explored quite a bit after joining Cogmation.
Q: What do you love most about your job?
On a day-to-day basis, I get to work with partners around the world who distribute the Virtual Robotics Toolkit, and I meet amazing people who are changing students’ life one line of code at a time.
