I would like to introduce myselfas Ms. Purva Arora, an electronics and communication undergraduate student withfascination for science and keen interest in the growing technology. During myundergraduate program, I learned the various fundamentals of Electronics withpractical coursework which further enhanced my interest. This statement ofpurpose is to enlist my aspirations to pursue my career through master inengineering at your esteemed university, as well as detailed plans post to mygraduation.Right from the school, I holdgood record in academics. I scored 9.4 CGPA in class 10th fromInnocent Hearts School.
During the school times, I had penchant for science andresearch. I made small projects like camera lens and smoke chimney during 10thstandard. Thisbasic interest led me to take up Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as my majorsubjects in high school. As a part of my Physics project, I had constructedlogic gates and simple latches using basic circuit elements. This interest mademe to take Electronics and Communication Engineering. My innate strength hasbeen my quantitative and analytical abilities which instilled me a specialinterest for mathematics and physics. I had opted the same in my 12thand secured 75.4%.
This performance helped me in getting admission into DAVInstitute of Engineering and Technology, Jalandhar, Punjab.During the course of my undergraduate study I wasexposed to various courses with applications like Electromagnetic field, Control systems,Electrical measurements, Linear Integrated Circuits, Electronics, Pulse anddigital circuits, Operating Systems, Data Structures, Digital SignalProcessing, Power systems, Electro mechanics, Micro processors & MicroControllers, Embedded systems, Wireless communications, Computer networks,Optical fibre communications. I secured 79.
6% in my engineering. I am wellversed in programming languages like C, C++ & Java. In the initial year of my engineering, I made aproject named Regulated Power Supply which displayed the basic knowledge ofelectrical devices like resistors, transducers, transformer, PCB, diodes etc.
It made me realized the practical implications of these basic electronicsdevices. This was basically used to regulate the power supply using effectiveuse of step-up and step-down transformers. Further, in the second year asdigital electronics was introduced my interest grew in making small digitalcircuits and latches through the knowledge of basic gates. Additionally, duringpost second year training I did my training in Embedded Systems in associationwith Sofcon Pvt. India in my college.
The basic project of Home Automationusing GSM SIM 900 Module was made using software like Atmel studio and Proteusdesign. In this project, a simple network of home appliances was smartlycontrolled with the help of transferring AT commands. This whole project wassoftware controlled. Moreover, here I got an opportunity to use C languagewhich I learnt in the first year of the degree. Also, it gave me an insight toembedded systems and further I tried to learn more about microcontroller in thelater years.
However, in the third year of my degree I encounteredsubjects like digital communications, wireless communications and wirelesssensor networks. I really enjoyed studying these subjects because it gave theidea of communication systems and the origin of the cellular technology. Itprovided me with vast knowledge of the networks also. For my major project inthe final year, I again choose embedded as the base. I made RFID based CarParking System along with three friends of mine. The complete programmingsection was designed by me with some other hardware jobs. During the making, Ilearnt a lot about RFID transponder and tags.
In this RFID tags were made to interactwith the transponder and the automatic boom barrier was lifted so that carcould be parked according to vacant places which were highlighted. The basic8051 Microcontroller was used for the purpose.Furthermore, I did my final year training in Java andAndroid from Dream Tech Labs, Jalandhar, Punjab. It was six month training inwhich I completely learnt Core java and Android. Subsequently, I made VotingApp which can be used for electing the Prime Minister of the country digitallyas Digital India was the main theme behind my app. People can feasibly electthe representative of the country with just sitting at home and casting theirprecious vote.
This project of mine was highly appreciated by the collegeauthorities and they rewarded me with good scores in the training semester.I am very much interested to do Master’s inElectrical and Computer Engineering at your esteemed university. My earnestdesire to continue my future studies at your graduate school stems from that itis one of the top universities in Canada having fine record of academic excellence.There are many research labs and teaching labs in the EngineeringDepartment and the student to faculty ratio is also admirable. The ranking ofthe university indicates its high standard. Given these facts, I believe thatthere cannot be a better platform than this university to obtain advancedknowledge of the electronics field. Thus my desire is to accomplish Master’s Course in Electrical andComputer Engineering from your University, which would definitely equip me withcomprehensive and specializedskills as an outcome of rigorous trainings in all aspects.
The other reason why Iwant to study at your esteemed college is that it provides the kind of exposureneeded to broaden my thinking. Your university is a confluence of people fromevery nationality, religion and race. Overall, development of the personalitycan be done and it helps me to broaden my concept from the narrower confines ofnationalism to internationalism. I am clear as to my career aspiration.
Education, I believe is a life-long process. I am fully aware that yourcurriculum requires, that I summon all my resources and I aver that I have thenecessary commitment, intelligence and stamina to look forward to do it all. Iam convinced that my study at your department would be meaningful and rewardingexperience. I look forward to have a long and profitable association with yourprestigious university. I especially thank you for giving me the opportunity toexpress about myself.
