I believe secret of success lies in Knowledge and Hard work. “Just because something is DIFFICULT doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try it. Difficulty is only a challenge; it should motivate us to try HARDER”. Even IMPOSSIBLE says I AM POSSIBLE”. I know it is not easy to get admission in your university but that doesn’t deter me from working hard towards this goal and giving it my best try.
‘We live only once, but if we live right, once is enough’ the same truth applies to one’s career decision because the career you choose is going to live with you throughout life and the education you perceive was is and will be your friend and which will help to achieve the career goals. Moreover education is an investment that will reap rich rewards in the future and will never go waste. So one has to make wise decision in life for which he may not have to repent in the future.
When I finished school I choose to pursue my career in Electronics, because of my natural ability in technology and my liking for the Electronic field .While studying for my degree, I took keen interest in Electronic device and Circuit, Electrical Technology, Network analysis, Signal & Systems, Pulse and digital Circuits, Control system,, Digital signal processing, Microprocessors & Interfacing, Microwave Engineering,. I have given seminar on difference topic related to Electronic such as “Electrooculography guidance of a Wheelchair using Eye movement Codification”. It illustrates about improving the quality of life for disabled people. I have undergone industrial training from Technocrat automation it’s a IAO certified institute in XXX .Apart from those academics I have successfully achieved a National level merit certificate In XXX Contest and XXX contest which was conducted by XXX and was also active in sports.
In 10th grade I have secured A grade with my hard work and dedication,In Intermediate I have scored XX which is comparatively less because of health issues and In Graduation I secured XX. I Got First class in graduation. GRE score is pending but I expect a good score.I will be writing my GRE on X/X/X .I have got competitive score in IELTS which is 7 bands.
My project details, undertaken during college, are as follows:
After completion of my degree in last year I have made constant effort to develop better understanding in the field of Electronic. While doing projects I have faced problems and to solve it I have discovered in me the qualities that compel me to probe deeply in to the intricacies of electronic technologies. I feel confident that I would be able to take up any challenge and aspire to become an outstanding student in Electronic stream. I am well equipped and highly qualified to undertake challenging tasks in my future endeavor in India I had a 2 days workshop on “Telecom Next generation network” Conducted by XXX.
Today I feel that my capacity to work assiduously and think creatively has been augmented by a good academics and Achievements. To fulfill my objective of been to study and equip my self with most advances research facilities and highest level of learning. With this field in India, very few institute offer a full-fledged graduate programme with state of the art research facilities.
Admission to a reputed university such as your distinguish faculty and alumni and modern research facilities will expose me to the frontier of the latest Electronic technology. This will help me to fulfill my long term goal to bring new Electronic development technology to my country by setting up a Electronic industry. I am confident that your Master of science programme enjoys an enviable reputation. Also with some of the best brains around, it will be inspiring but at the same time. I also hope that I will be of some benefit to you during our prospective association.
In conclusion, I would like to add that the essence of University education lies in the synergistic relationship between the student and his department. I feel that graduate study at your University will be the most logical extension of my academic pursuits and a major step towards achieving my objectives. I would be grateful to you if I’m accorded the opportunity to pursue my graduate studies with financial assistance at your institution and am able to justify your faith in me.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express myself.
SAMPLE STATEMENT OF PURPOSE – ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
My decision to pursue graduate study in the United States is underscored by my desire to be a part of the graduate program at your institution. Purdue University offers the flexibility needed for such a vast and rapidly changing field. The research facilities and the faculty at the university are par excellent. Communications is an industry that has changed our lives. In a very short period it has changed the way we have looked at things since centuries. It is one industry that is going to shape our future for centuries to come. Hence my desire to do masters in electrical engineering with communications as my major.
My interest in electronics blossomed during my high school years. It was the time when technology had begun to make an impact on the lives of people in India. Hence engineering with electronics as my major was the first choice for my undergraduate studies. Right since the beginning of my undergraduate study electronics is a subject that has fascinated me with its power of applications. The subjects that I have studied include Linear Electronics, Digital Electronics. These laid the foundation for my courses in Electronic Communication & Communication Systems at a later stage. My undergraduate studies already focus on the communications aspect of electronics. A masters degree in electrical engineering with communications as major field is the next logical step.
For the past four months I have been working as a project trainee at the Indian Institute for Advanced Electronics. I am working on the design and development of a “PC Controlled Digital Serial Data Generator”. This short stint has given me invaluable practical experience. It has given me the confidence to pursue a masters degree and also kindled a desire to do research.
During the course of my work at IIAE, I have come across several scientists. Most of them work in different areas of communications. Interactions with them have made me realize the vastness and the scope of communications. My discussions with them convinced me that specializing in communications will suit me very well. The subject of research which interests me very much is spread spectrum communication systems. Coding theory and combinations is another research subject which arouses my curiosity. The subject Communication Theory which I am studying at present introduces these topics in theory. I am eager to find out more about the applications of coding theory to spread spectrum communication systems.
In addition I have been a student member of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.) for the past three years. Through its workshops/seminars and publications like the ‘The Spectrum’ it has exposed me to a lot of emerging technologies in the field of communications.
It is a strong belief in my family that the American education system has the best to offer in the whole world. This belief arises out of the experience that my parents had when they did their Masters of Science in the University of Pennsylvania during the years 1967-69. If I can get an opportunity to be a part of that intellectually stimulating environment, I am sure my talents will be put to optimal use.
India is a developing country with an enormous potential in the information technology business. To serve the needs of this developing industry and more important its vast population, communications is going to become of utmost importance. Thus conditions here are very conducive to supplement my aspirations when I return after completing my graduate studies.
