Curiosity is the first and the foremost quality whichdrives a person towards learning new things.
I have always believed that oneshould never give up the habit of asking questions and this habit has been animportant facet of my creativity. I seek to invent new ideas by applying thebasic principles of an existing theory in uncommon ways. I have originated froma family where the highest priority was always given to good education. Ihave studied in the best High School in my city and I have excelled in academics right from my school days.
In school, Iactively used to secure one of the top positions in the class. I haveconsistently been allured towards subjects that draw upon one’s analyticalabilities Withmy eyes clearly set on my goals, I took up mathematics and physical sciences inmy pre-university course. Engineering is embedded with mathematics andphysical sciences and my love for both mathematics and physics is like an icingon the cake.
A natural aptitude for mathematics,a sense of logic, good grades, high academic credentials and a good rank innational level examination All India Engineering Entrance Exam(AIEEE) which has about 150,000 applicants across the country every year secured me a place in National Institute ofTechnology, Raipur. NIT Raipur is a renownedinstitution and one of the top 50 Engineering Colleges of my country.NIT’s in India haveachieved prominence as the front runner in imparting quality engineeringeducation. The students joined here are very bright in their academics due tothe limited seats and hence, at the Institute we interact and live with thebest minds in the country.Havingchosen Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering as my major, the collegehas given me wide range of opportunity to enhance my skill in both theory andpractical. “The student population isdivided into two groups, those who go to college to learn and those who go tocollege to earn a degree.”This quote explains my view on education. I alwayswanted to learn much more about electronics and computers, which was solelyresponsible for my keen interest in the core subjects.
Subjects like Microprocessors and Micro Controllers, Embedded Systems, Switching Theory and LogicDesign, Electronic Devices and Circuits, Digital Signal Processing triggered myinterest in exploring the digital world around me and helped me learn the aspects of system implementation. On the other hand,courses like Data Structure, Operating System, C, C++, JAVA, Data Communicationand Computer Network helped me understand how the concepts of computers areapplied to practical systems in day-to-day life. I was always fascinated by theway Embedded and automation technologies changed the life of human beings. So, Idid my summer internship at sI3 Indya Technologies, the best training companyin Embedded Systems and Robotics. I haveworked on the practical applications such as LED designing, Display patternsetc during the internship. This internship had tapped my hidden potentialities.
In my final year, I have worked on the project “Study of Numerical Techniques in AntennaSimulation”. The project being a group work, refined me the virtues ofgroup coordination, interaction along with team work that are essential in thepresent day work scenario. In order to gain some industrialexposure I visited Bharath Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL is the largest Telecomcompany in India) during my 4th semester. The Inplant traininghelped me understand the advanced routing techniques and instruments/hardwareused in transmitting and routing the wired and wireless based telephone calls. I always wanted to implement myknowledge practically in order to gain more knowledge on the topics which Ilearn. This intention encouraged me to work on projects like “Pick and placeobjects using Robot (arms)” and “Touch screen control robot and home automachine”. I can call this period as the most productive time of my engineeringbecause I have learnt many new software technologies, programming and theirimplementations.
In today’s information age, having the knowledge ofelectronics and communication together with computer science in a meaningfuland in depth manner is of great advantage. INFY There is a saying, which says, “The only thing Permanent inlife is Change”. This perfectly holds true to the world of Computer Sciencewhere novel ideas are not a novelty. It is this novelty that entices me to thisfield and gives me a deep sense of professional pride.
I believe in a holistic educationthat supports both personal and professional development and thus I indulgemyself in several recreational and co-curricular activities. I have securedfourth position in GREEN GANESHA competition organized by GO GREEN committee ofNIT Raipur. Also, I was a runner in the caroms conducted by Assets club of NITRaipur. Traits like leadership and responsibility were enhanced in me with allthese experiences. Now,after having acquired the basic aptitude, skills, knowledge and work experiencein the field of Information System, I feel this is the apt time to pursue mygraduate study in the field of my interest and strongly believe that myaptitude and aspirations find a terrific match in your program. I feel that graduate study atyour University will be the most logical extension of my academic pursuits anda major step towards achieving my objectives.
I have selected (University of Cincinnati) after a comprehensiveunderstanding of the courses offered, various majors available in your programand distinctions of the faculty. I want to learn, satiate my never ending curiosity and make theoptimum use of technology with the help of my technical, communication andleadership skills. I can assure you, if admitted, that I can commit myself tobe an asset to my department and during my graduate program, if given a chanceof research /teaching assistantship, I believe that I can fulfill the requiredduties with a high degree of perfection and enthusiasm.
