STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
It was only after careful consideration of my aptitude, interests and experiences gained while pursuing my under graduation in the field of Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering that I have decided to pursue my masters in the field of Electrical Engineering. Being a dynamic and ever evolving field, many new developments are expected and there is immense scope for research on new products and applications. To progress and make a mark in this field, I realize that it is important for me to pursue my Master’s from a reputed university. So while gaining admission to your university and completing this course would be my immediate goal, I have always dreamt of taking up research. So after gaining some work experience with a well established company, I wish to further my qualifications with a PhD and conduct some ground-breaking research with some of the best minds in the research industry.
At Sinhgad College of Engineering,
My interest in circuit design scaled when I undertook a project on “GPS based vehicle tracking system” in the last year. This project aimed at locating the position upto 10 meters of a vehicle was based on Matlab as front end mechanism while the programming of ARM was done in C using Keil . I learnt and used Digital Electronics and Matlab to implement the project. I take pride in mentioning that my team secured first place for Technical Paper Presentation on the same topic with jury comprising of best brains in the field..
I have always been conscious in upgrading my skills and knowledge as I believe as engineers needs to keep themselves abreast with the latest developments and technologies. At the moment, I am gaining superior skills in C++ programming during my course of study at Michigan Tech and I believe mastering these skills will aid me immensely in the research at your department. Also my insight in Routing and Placement gained by my research in current semester will help to add value to the department diversity. Additionally, I also did my internship from Alstom Projects India Limited as a process engineer at combined cycle power plant. This experience makes me confident to take new challenges and achieve it in specific time frame.
I have attended many technical seminars and presentations on VLSI Design, Embedded System Design and Robotics which were offered at college. Moreover my constant discussionss with my Professor and PhD students at Michigan Tech helps me in knowing current issues in research and possible solutions for it.
