STATEMENTOF PURPOSEIintend to apply for the Master’s Program in Chemical Engineering at————–University for the fall of 2018.PURPOSE: My ambition was to becomean aeronautical engineer. But it all started when I came to know about the”Fire Protection Fluid-NOVEC” in a seminar at science exhibition.
I pondered aquestion how come a fluid can be created that looks similar to water that usedto extinguish the fire and it can be converted into a gas once discharged fromthe apparatus. I was also wondering about the chemical compounds, structuresand formula and their origination. Then I decided to take myself into aresearch field that can take the world to a better position. So, I choseChemical Engineering that has a diverse scope. I was fascinated by the role ofchemical engineer in taking the world forward in various fields like food,pharmacy, textile, biochemical, oil and gas, paper and pulp, petroleum and soonDuring my undergraduate degree,I was enthralled to pursue my graduate program in abroad. Now that Canada is leadingtheir way as a ground-breaker in a research field.
Their research works are atits top notch. Most significantly, Canada is offering good support forinternational students and also good- opportunities in working and researchfields. As a scholar at St.Joseph’s College of Engineering, I have sculptured myself with interpersonaland cognitive skills. I have been one among the toppers of my college. Thereason of choosing St.
Joseph’s College of Engineering is that rather thanproviding a good education to all the students they are well disciplined in allmanner and they support their students to a greater extent. I had beenaccoladed with prizes at various universities and colleges for paperpresentation, poster presentation. I was also awarded second prize in technicalquiz. To enhance my knowledgeand to use them in a real-time application, I did my project on “Extraction of chitosanfrom shrimp shell and using that in corrosion application” and “Styrofoam as acorrosion inhibitor in carbon steel and mild steel”. It was the time I ingressinto the research field and understood that the chemical compounds have theability both to build and destruct the world.
So, I am interested in using thisfield to reduce the destructive pollution that is happening around us.During my one-monthinternship at “Central Leather Research Institute (CLRI)” I did my work on”Process optimization and production of polyhydroxy butyrate”. As an intern Iwas acquainted with various technologies and usage of NMR Spectroscopy, gaschromatography, bomb calorimeter, biochemical reactor and also design injacketed heat exchanger and biochemical reactor.In my four year of undergraduatestudies I did my internship at “International Flavours and Fragrance (IFF)”, “TTKhealthcare” and “Syncromax Biotech Limited”. During which I learned about thevarious unit operations, practical concepts and methods that are widely used inchemical industry. I am currently doing myfinal year project on “Optimization and modelling of carboxypeptidase productionfrom kluyveromyces marxianus” at Central Leather Research Institute. I had readvarious publications from different authors that showed various technologiesinvolved in the field and understood that I need to optimize those technologiesin my upcoming research work. As a result of my cognition, my review paper waspublished in “Research Journal of Pharmacy and Technology”.
Apart from academics I hadvolunteered myself with high self interest in extra-curricular activities. Ihad learnt classical dance for nearly 8 years and actively participated invarious cultural programs and competitions. I have good drawing skill for whichI was awarded with first price in a competition conducted by “Ministry ofTextiles, Government of India”. I had received Governor Award “Rajyapuraskar”in The Bharat Scouts and Guides for my joyous pursuit in the service ofmankind. I was awarded first place in “21st Inter State MathematicalCompetition”. I was accorded with first place in oratorical competitionconducted by “Tamil Nadu State Aids Control Society (TNSACS)” and “NationalAIDS Control Organisation (NACO)” The thought of becoming asuccessful chemical engineer is ingrained in me and I am fascinated to pursuemy studies in Canada.
I want to go to the next level in the field of Chemical Engineeringthat requires a lot of support from top staffs which I believe ——–University can provide me.I want to stabilize myselfin your well reputed institution. Chemical engineers with an avant-garde skillare having a demand around the world and I convey that I will contribute all mytalents and efforts to enhance the student body of your college. I also like toput myself in different situations which gains me experience which will help meto develop better as a person and contribute to the society in a better way.
