IntroductionI am Alen Tomy, a sincere, ambitious and hard-workingperson.
I believe in taking up new challenges in life and fulfilling them toutmost. I have successfully completed AllIndia Secondary School Examination(AISSE) with 93% and All India Senior School Certificate Examination (AISSCE) in Science stream with 90.4% from Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). My keen interest in engineering studies supportedwith strong academic performance in Grade 12, gave me confidence to pursueBachelor’s Degree in Engineering in 2013. I completed myBachelors Program in Engineering specializing in Mechanical Engineering from ViswajyothiCollege of Engineering & Technology, Vazhakulam, Kerala affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala, India in May2017 with a CGPA of 8.71.
After completing my bachelor degree, I havegained sufficient knowledge about the fundamentals of Mechanical Engineeringthose are applicable to most of the design, processes, production andmanufacturing sectors. This naturally creates an urge of knowing in detailabout the advanced technologies. So in order to enhance my knowledge I plannedto opt for Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering at University ofWindsor. I firmly believe that the attractive opportunity offered by thisUniversity can truly help me both in enhancing knowledge about the industry andmy credentials. Furthermore, to meet the entrance requirement for theUniversity I have also appeared for English Language Proficiency Test (IELTS)and scored an overall band of 7.5.Reason for Choosing ThisCourseAs we know MechanicalEngineering is one of the oldest and comprehensive among the engineeringdisciplines. The world of today have gained a lot from this particular branchand it still continues.
Mechanical Engineers are responsible for the smooth andproper functioning of a number of industrial sectors such asautomotive, aerospace, power generation, manufacturing, refineriesand so on. They usually go beyond the limits and they are one of the bestproblem solvers in the world. So I also want to be a part of this powerfulengineering sector. But for that the knowledge I acquired so far is not enough.Hence I choose a Master’s degree in Mechanical engineeringas the next logical step.
I have searched for courses in my country but gotvery little option. So when I came to know about Master of Engineering course in University of Windsor for2 years, I decided to go for the same. I have gone through the course contentof this particular program and it’s quite different from what I have studiedbefore. Master of Engineering is a course-based program designedfor those who want to increase their knowledge in multiple, advanced topics.Reason for ChoosingUniversity of WindsorThe selection of the rightuniversity by the candidate is as important as the selection of the rightcandidate by the university. To choose a university that is suitable to myambition is a major decision, one which can’t be taken in haste. From my search for anexcellent education institution for pursuing advanced studies in Canada, Irecognized that, University of Windsor (UWindsor) has been the choicefor many engineering aspirants to pursue their higher education goals over theyears.
My detailed research on the institutional profile of UWindsor revealed thelong-standing history of academic excellence of UWindsor and its brilliance in imparting education invarious cutting edge technology specializations. Some reasons for choosing this university are:· UWindsor is a public comprehensiveand research university in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, founded in 1857.· The university providesan excellent education and experience to its more than 15,000 full- andpart-time students at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
