Statement of PurposeIntroduction and Academics:There is an old paradigm that says, “To stay where you are, keep running”.
Today I realize how true it is because unless we keep track of the changes and advances being made we will be considered pariah. As I stand at the threshold of completing my undergraduate study, after carefully contemplating the various career options open to me I have decided to go in for graduate study that calls for personal commitment in fulfilling the crafts of independent research and dedicated involvement. In turn, I shall get intellectual satisfaction and gratification of becoming a contributor of knowledge with research, and the greater personal rewards of memory and discovery. Now, on the verge of completion of my Under-Graduate Studies, I realize that my present knowledge would not suffice.
I feel that unless one is erudite in his field, one cannot be fully satisfied.I also feel that “Every person is born with an innate flair, the moment your realize it you become a great person”. It was at high school that my fascination for electronic gadgets coupled with a desire to be a skilled programmer, prompted me to choose Electrical and Electronics as the major for my Bachelor’s Degree.I was not happy with just understanding a phenomenon, but wanted a real time experience. This interest in logical and computational thinking led me to take up Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as my major subjects at the Pre-University level after completing my Schooling with %.
I completed my pre-University education with %.For my under graduate studies, I have opted for ” Electrical and Electronics Engineering” in SRTIST College of Technology, where I find my diligent study has brought home to me very strongly, that there is still a vast field that I must explore and master to achieve my goal of being the best. The economic technological liberalization that is taking place in India would ensure that I would be able to use my expertise, to make my country a leader in the area of Information Science and Technology. My expertise in engineering subjects imbibed in me, an interest to pursue further education in this field.During my undergraduate studies, I realized that the curriculum was exhaustive. It provided an in-depth theoretical background of every subject, but that was not enough for me. I needed a program that would help me to acquire a higher level of knowledge, leadership skills and problem solving ability to tackle the most diverse and complex problems.
It was my second year in college. I had a chance to take up computer programming and Networking as part of my curriculum. I still remember the good times I used to spend in the Computer Science lab typing out programs in C-language and Networking. As a result of my interest, I was awarded with a good grade in that subject. That is when I came to know that I had a natural inclination towards computers, which has now become a desire, a driving force to pursue my Masters in Information Technology.
During the last two years, besides the college academics I spent most of my time attending a number of extra-curricular workshops, seminars and conferences in different fields of computer science. I have acquired an excellent knowledge of programming languages like C, C++, JAVA, and .NET through certifications done out my self-interest.
I have also found penchant for Network Security, Operating System and Data Structures. I also had the opportunity to present a seminar on OSI model of computer networking, during an intercollege competition.Professional ExperienceAfter Graduation, I got an offer in MechTurbo as a Junior Electrical Engineer. From the past 1.5 years I have been working as a Junior Electrical Engineer. Parallely I planned to pursue Masters in Australia. I Why UNSW: University of New South Wales is a public university established in 1949 and is primarily located in Kensington, being situated not far from the center of Sydney, Australia.

The main factors include the computerization in all the sectors such as business, science, government and management.
In addition to these, the World Wide Web which is a global information system has loaded us with a tremendous amount of data and information. The present scenario of online banking transactions is a good example of the need of secure and convenient information system. This explosive growth in stored data has generated an urgent need for new techniques and tools that can intelligently assist us in the management of data and information. So, defining new methods and utilizing the present tools of managing information system in a more efficient way could be a flourishing frontier in the information field for the days ahead.
Beside we should not forget: The need is great in the future.The present world is surrounded by the data and information field. On one hand, these data present the potential for us to discover useful information and knowledge not seen before. On the other hand, we are limited in our ability to manually process large amounts of data to discover useful information and knowledge. So, the need of better tools and application as well as the reliable methods of utilizing the data and information is the eminent necessity of not only today’s world but the future also.
The real-time processing and analysis of various data and information should be realized. There should be a constant evaluation of the system indicating relatively strong work handling capacity and expansion capacity; useful for optimization, reduction of management risks, and improvement of information efficiency.Goal”Ordinary people strive for living hood and geniuses strive to provide it for others also”. This is the way I look at life. In my perspective, the education you pursue and the job you do should help the needy in some way or the other. In my nearer future, I want to be in a good position by establishing my own firm and generate employment for others.
Thus it will be a two way beneficial. If I will be able to do that I will become a role model for at least a few.Reasons to Come Back to India:It will be good to study in Australia and work as an intern for a while.
