Master of Science in Power Engineering at TUM
Winter Semester 2011/12
Statement of Purpose
“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice, it is not a thing be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved, William Jennings Bryan”
“Knowledge is Power” has always been the driving force behind all the achievements in my life. When I was a child I was very fascinated with mathematics and physics because I found that everything around me was somehow connected with the implementation of these subjects. When I grew up I saw big machines around me working for the benefits of mankind. I realize that in order to get control over that strange world of machines I should have the ability and enthusiasm of conquering these machines.
The desire to get complete knowledge about machines prompted me to enroll myself at ———————one of the most prestigious institute of Pakistan, with acceptance ratio of only 0.022 %; affiliated with —————————– Pakistan. I was among those 11 students that were selected from a whole province for the program. Today as a 23-year-old individual I perceive that life for me has been a process of conscious evolution. The most integral part of this growth is the value system imbibed in me by my parents, teachers and my mentors and an intrigued liking for science. This played a vital role in my decision making for the future. My undergraduate education at —–, —– not only gives me a certain set of skills but also helped me to understand my fields of interest and my academic strengths. At ——— I learned more about Control and Automation, Power Electronics, Embedded systems and Electrical Machines.
I always approach towards my decision practically rather philosophically. Energy without any doubt is one of the major crises around the world. During my bachelors program I started research about energy storage and new sources of energies. Then I came to know that Renewable Energy is the best solution of this entire problem. Pakistan too is badly affected by energy crisis. Pakistan has many valuable resources of Coal, Geothermal, Photovoltaic, Bio-energy and Ocean waves but still facing energy crisis. All these sources of energies can be utilize to high extent by converting these into clean energy which will help us to snatch the whole world from hand of energy crisis The problem is that we do not have that workforce that can effectively utilize all these resources. One person’s life influences the lives of many peoples, is one of the most important lessons I learned in my Bachelors Program. I believe that as an Industrial Electronic Engineer, I should be able to contribute to meeting mankind’s energy needs while safeguarding the environment and I am sure that after doing my Masters in Power Engineering I will be able to do that.
I consider myself eligible to study in TUM because I’m young, energetic, smart working, visionary and motivated person who believes that I can do something to benefit my world in future. My strengths are a strong academic background, sense of teamwork, integrity and ability to put in sustained quality effort consistently. Being able to identify patterns and relationships that are not obvious to others is one of my strength. This will prove very valuable because an integral part of taking Master degree is to perceive the balance between the theory and practice, analytical persistency, and intuition. I represented my University in many Technical events occurred locally or outside my city. Due to good managerial skills I was an executive member of organizing committee of ——-.E-Indus is an annual technical event which is staged under the banner of ——– at ——-, ——. My communication skills are excellent and I like expressing the ideas and concepts which are the suitable stands for the dissemination of knowledge in my chosen field of specialization.
TUM Masters program of Power Engineering caught my eye and after going through the curriculum I concluded, this is the program I was thinking about.
