When I think about the different realms of science and technology, it is hard to think of a domain that is going to change the world as much as advanced software will, in the decades ahead.
In a typical day, when I see Amazon recommending products, Facebook pushing customized advertisement for me, Google self-driving car operating on the street, the popular TV show Netflix produced, I am amazed by what today’s large volume of data and cuttingedge technology could achieve, helping individual or organization to make wise decisions, and improving and optimizing existing process in an unprecedented way. As one might imagine, the use of data science will become more ubiquitous. I feel excited about the wide application of data science nowadays, especially in tracking infectious disease, curing cancer and personalizing education which are meaningful for the whole society. With my strength and interest, I want to contribute to that age of evolution. Thus, a Master Degree in Data science is a logic culmination of my passion for solving such problems.
I am pursuing my undergraduate degree i.e., Bachelor of Technology in Electronics and Computer Engineering at Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology. I consistently maintained good grades throughout my under graduation.
My exposure to the concepts of programming languages such as Python, C, Java, Data Structures and subjects such as Database Management Systems, Data warehousing and Data Mining, Probability and Statistics, and other Business and management subjects during undergraduate study helped me in understanding the nuances in the field of my interest. I am always obsessed with statistic approaches to real-world problems and mathematical subjects like Probability and Statistics have been my strong hold, and the idea of drawing conclusions and making decisions in the face of uncertainty fascinated me. That motivated me to continue to pursue a Master Degree in Data Science at your esteemed university. Apart from having academic proficiency, I have participated actively in many extra-curricular activities like social service events and sports.
I love sports, and I am the captain of my team which won first prize in ZEST 2k16 cricket championship. I was honored the Best Volunteer in NSS for my extra-ordinary service towards society. Being recognized as a person with good leadership qualities, I was made to plan and organize many events in my college. Such maintenance of right balance between academics and extra-curricular activities helped me in overall physical and cognitive development and enabled me to develop many essential skills. While my short-term career goal is to be a data scientist after obtaining the degree, my long-term career goal is to build my own enterprise focusing on providing Data Science consulting services in the future. With this goal in mind I decided to study in a world class institute that helps me achieve my goals.
I am looking for a school that provides professional skills, handson experience and networking opportunities needed to be successful in a business setting. The distinguished faculty and excellent facilities at your university make its graduation program ideally suited to my professional goals. Your university provides me a dynamic atmosphere, which will shape me to be a thinker and a learner. The flexibility of the curriculum will give me the broad-based education I need to widen the scope of my knowledge and skills. The diversity of the student’s body will open my mind to new influences, new ideas and new ways of doing things.
The world is literally becoming a global village where opportunities for work are transcending physical space. With the Cyberspace connections, Indians are increasingly contributing to the global work force. The international education will give me the training and the caliber to meet the global clients. I would also believe that I will make excellent contribution to the atmosphere at the university and subsequently be a successful data scientist. With my passion and aspiration, I look forward to being an active contributing member of the student community at your university.
