I plunged into darkness knowing not what hit me. Suddenly, a thud rattles me and I find myself in a bed of sand. As I gasp for breath and stand up, I see miles of unending sand. With skin burnt and throat dry, I shriek for help and rescue. Inching across the barren land, I trip over a small metal object. I frantically clear the sand and find myself staring at a wireless telephone instrument. Knowing not how it got there I cling onto it as a God sent savior. Trying to figure out a way to send a distress signal I struggle with disgust and yell out loud, when suddenly, I see an angelic face reaching out its hand to me. As I try to clear the haze in front of my eyes I see my mother stand there trying to wake me up. Once again I find myself in bed only to realize that the nightmare of losing all forms of communication continues to haunt me.
The field to communications exceeds the boundless possibilities of innovation and has always set forth multiple platforms for development. It is one industry that has changed our lives and that is going to shape our future for centuries to come. With the advent of Starsy, Orbcomm and Global star, tomorrow’s mobile communication satellites, we will be provided with advanced global cellular services, digital data exchanges, paging services and much, much more. Today the fastest growing segments of the telecommunication industry: space born communications, international telephone calls and cellular services have given a never-ending boost to the telecommunications revolution, in turn opening avenues for engineers like myself.
One person’s life influences the lives of an unbelievable number of people’ is something that my father has always believed in. Looking at myself alone, I couldn’t support his belief more. He has been my inspiration all my life; following his footsteps I took up engineering. Seeing him work hard with committed dedication and enthusiasm towards any work has taken me a long way in giving my goals the best possible I have.
The range of subjects that I was exposed to during the Electronics Engineering course fascinated me to great extents, but it did not take me long to realize my penchant towards Communications and communication related subect5s like Principles of Communication Engineering, Satellite, Television and Video Technology, Digital Communications etc. Besides my affinity and natural inclination towards these subjects, the thought of connecting people and making the world a smaller place through technology helped me seal my decision.
The American educational system, geared to stimulate the intelligence and creativity of a student, is fluid and dynamic, constantly incorporating new developments, which will assist me in keeping pace with all new technologies. Until now, technology has perpetuated itself not by giving the average person more time to pursue human concerns, but by increasing efficiency. The profound implication of the advanced technological sciences and the scope for innovation in the field of communication is a strong source of inspiration to me-the strong motif that has been persistent throughout my undergraduate career. The electronics Engineering course has exposed me to the leading edge in technology, my undergraduate career. The Electronics Engineering course has exposed me to the leading edge in technology and the practical low-down and information I require, thus laying a strong foundation for further study in the field of communications. I believe that the broad overview gained during undergraduate studies and cbe consummated only by the in-depth study that a Graduate degree will entail. Graduate study would give me front-line exposure to the technological advances made in this field and allow me to contribute to its immense development.
Research would be of prime importance in this highly innovative field with hands on experience in real time applications accompanied by in-depth knowledge of the subject. My interest in research has burgeoned during the four years of undergraduate study. It is my firm belief that post graduate study is indispensable for acquiring a deeper understanding and a flexible insight. I have realized that a successful long-term career in research requires genuine love for the subject. I am aware that a career in research requires strong motivation, hard work, maturity, the capacity to think independently and the ability to work as a team, and I am confident that I possess these qualities.
Teaching is not a field totally to me. During my sophomore and junior years I tutored a few high school students in the subject of Mathematics. Their exemplary results instilled an even greater confidence in me towards teaching. Hence, if provided with teaching assistant ship I would definitely prove to be a valuable asset. More important, I can say that no goal like beyond my reach so long as I show hard work and perseverance.
I believe faculty accessibility plays a key role in helping to inspire students to be passionate about their fields of study and in preventing them from growing discouraged from the work load or from difficult problems. Besides the numerous resources and conducive atmosphere, studying at your University would give me the opportunity to broaden my horizon further by getting a chance to interact with students and faculty from different nationalities and cultures. Being Indian in origin, I would love to share the diverse Indian cultures with those present there. Throughout my academic career I have been exposed to a number of sports and cultural activities and hold certificates for the same. I wish to continue the involvement with these activities along with my graduate studies at your university.
I strongly believe that I possess the basic aptitude, discipline and perseverance to sustain the motivation and drive needed for a Masters degree. I have many ambitions for myself as I embark on this stage of my life. I am confident that education from your university will provide invaluable experiences and an excellent opportunity to explore the field of communication providing me with the best environment to achieve my goals. It is my conviction that through sheer diligence and application, I have the capability to make a positive contribution to your University.
