STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
“A dream acted upon by confidence becomes an ambition and that when followed with determination defines the purpose of existence in its entirety”
It is with a sincere sense of gratitude towards the opportunity given to me, I pen down this statement. Education not only expands the horizons of one's knowledge but also simultaneously implants an insatiable desire to acquire more and more knowledge. Knowledge is that which can enhance the strength of mind and thereby expand the intellect of man. It is that which can transcend the limits of the time and take mankind beyond those limits to the timeless eternity. The knowledge, which science and technology had provided for the mankind has always fascinated me and had left an indelible impression on my mind to envisage my goals and aims ahead.
Goals and aspirations
To pursue higher education in electrical and electronics by doing my masters in an esteemed university, and thereby make a mark in the field of electrical and electronics.
My aspiration is to acquire the wisdom from the knowledge and thereby give it back to the scientific community in specific and mankind in general in the long run.
The most prominent inspirational factor is the discourse from my tutor when I was in my ninth standard of my schooling, which had certainly created the curiosity within me to know more about the science, and made me an active participant of science fairs and exhibitions. The inspiring words of my tutor have certainly instigated the interest in the physical sciences. And shown me the light towards accomplishment of my desire.
My brother, who is an NIT graduate, has been my motivational drive to take electrical engineering as my profession at my under graduation. The projects that has been handled by him during his tenure has enthralled me and provoked me to be more apprehensive of the facts and figures involved in the field of Electricals.
With a sound school background I have successfully completed my 10 years of schooling and secured 82.16% in my X standard. My innate strengths have been my quantitative and analytical abilities, which instilled in me a special interest in mathematics and made me to take up mathematics, physics and chemistry as my majors in my pre-university education wherein I stood among top 5% in our state. I was in the top 8% of people who succeeded the Common Engineering Entrance Examination conducted state wide. I took up Electrical Engineering as my discipline in Vignan Institute of Technology & Science affiliated to Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, one of the premier institutes in India. I passed this Under Graduation course with an aggregate of 81.12%.
The four years of undergraduate education have been a great learning and enriching process for me. I have thorough knowledge of fundamentals of Electrical Engineering especially in the fields of Electro Mechanics, Electro magnetic Fields, Electronic Devices and Circuits, Pulse and Digital Circuits, Power Electronics, Electrical Measurements, Power Systems and Semiconductor Drives, Control Systems. I am fully acquainted with the fast growing subjects like Network Theory, Digital Signal Processing, Microprocessors, Linear and Digital Integrated Circuits. I have also been made acquainted with programming languages like C & C++, packages like DOT NET and operating systems as WINDOWS & UNIX. Mere technical knowledge does not mean the whole of life. Apart from this there are several other facets of life. Believing this, I have always tried to be in the forefront of extra-curricular activities right form childhood. I had been an active member of Indian Students of Technical Education - ISTE, which spurs and boosts the students to take part in paper presentations and technical quizzes. This association had enabled me to participate in several national level paper presentations and thereby enhance my communication skills.
I was the team leader for the project entitled “PC based Solar Tracking System” under the able guidance of Mr. S. Tirumala Rao, at my college (Vignan Institute of technology & Science).
I often read the leading journals and it was one of those journals that fascinated me and drew my attention towards the basic electronic signals-the way they are transmitted and processed and this kindled the interest in me to take up my career in ‘Signal Processing’. And my course work on Digital Signal Processing at undergraduate level had just enhanced my ken for this subject and thereby I have decided to pursue my masters in Digital Signal Processing. My other areas of interest are signals and systems, embedded systems, VLSI design, control systems and detection, electromagnetic field theory, nano electronics.
I strongly believe that the graduate study at an American university is the best type of further education at this instance because of the suppleness incorporated in its educational system, its infrastructure, opportunities for research activities, and the intense interaction with industry and exposure to the latest technology. My decision to pursue graduate study in the United States is supplemented by my desire to be a part of the graduate program at your institution. Thus, with such assorted brilliant student group and excellent faculty, your university would be the ideal place where I can put in my best efforts and make my vision take its concrete form.
The Graduate program at Northwestern Polytechnic University ideally suits to my goals and aspirations. After going through the university’s website, I realized that there also exists a vast gamut of opportunities, especially outstanding electrical facilities, in your department. I have found the faculty and the research work to be quite impressive. I feel that my association with this university would certainly help me throughout my career. Also my B.Tech professor has also strongly encouraged me to apply to your program. I am confident that given the opportunity, I will be able to make significant mark in my field of study.
I have a strong desire to learn the new concepts, and self-reliance to face challenges put forth under any circumstances. And more over I strongly believe that a master’s degree from your university will be a deciding factor in shaping my future I shall be elated if an opportunity is given to me to pursue my masters at your university. And finally I am confident that the technical knowledge that I procure in the United States of America will help me in playing a constructive role in the progress of mankind.
