These are the words which inspire me to excel in whatever thetasks I take up and helped me polish my skills. These also facilitated me tofulfill my desire of efficiently applying my technical abilities to theproblems confronted in my academic career. My interest towards physicalenvironment started in my 6th grade when my uncle’s car needed toget repaired. It was a Hindustan Motors Ambassador, a real classic of all time.
He used to get it repaired by himself. I volunteered to help him in fixing thecar. I was fascinated when I inspected what is under the hood, the way theengine works, the lubricants and the cooling fluids was really mesmerizing. Theway that the components worked in tandem to make the vehicle move was really intriguingat that time. And my eagerness didn’t stop there, whenever I see a vehicle I useto open up the hood so that I can learn anything new.
This passion and enthusiasmkept me going through the years of my education.Through years of my schooling I’ve created an interest in Mathematicsand Sciences which encouraged me to keep the eagerness to learn more still living.This assisted me to perform well in the engineering entrance exam and I gotinto Gayatri Vidya Parishad College of Engineering (A) (Affiliated to JawaharlalNehru Technological University Kakinada). I’ve made the best choice inselecting this institution, it reflects my skills which guided me through thepath I needed.
I wish to create a milestone in my chosen field of study as apioneer of new ideas and concepts. So, I selected Mechanical Engineering. As astudent, I took this field of study to improve my knowledge and skills in myareas of interest.
I believe it will also serve to give direction to my goal ofa career as a research professional at an academic and research-oriented organization.In our country there is a popular annual competition calledSAE BAJA. To this event students have to bring a fabricated automobile which haveto be approved their rulebook. Group of students in our college collectivelyparticipated in this event.
I played a role of design and fabricate in which Ihave to design all the elements with precision as derived by the calculations.After months of work we finally been able to submit and explain the analysisthrough a presentation to the judging committee. Though we couldn’t make itthrough the competition, it has been a great experience to all of us. This hasgiven us a broad understanding of how the commercial world works through the exposconducted at the event.During my senior year, I got an opportunity as an intern at”Defence Research and Development Organisation” (DRDO), Bengaluru.
This was myfirst exposure to the industrial and defence environment. It was an incredibleexperience. It was here, that I learnt to put out what I have learnt in thepast 3 years to use. I was assigned as a temporary assistant in the designingdepartment. During this time, I had a very good opportunity to interact withexperienced people involved in manufacturing and testing activities. From whom,I learnt the importance of planning and implementation of engineering fundamentals.
On site, I witnessed the functioning of each department involved in the qualitycheck so as to ensure that there are no discrepancies in the final product.For the final year of engineering everyone has to take aproject. So, I convinced my team mates to do a project different from others. Whenothers started projects on manufacturing, we chose a project on aerodynamics.
Thisinvolves some serious computations for the analysis. Once a design is completedit took hours of time for every simulation to run. Our project advisor was veryimpressed by our results. We were praised by many faculty members.Despite the fluidity, fast growing technology and collaboratingwith new departments and in my field, I’ve always tried in tandem with these bygoing through reputed journals. I have always been interested in adapting newtechnologies, hence I’ve undergone numerous courses that aid my skills.
Most ofthe application courses that I’ve taken are self-taught. I have been certifiedby SolidWorks as a Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA). I even try to teachthe shortcuts that I implement in making my work easier to others. This desireto edify others on what I learnt motivated me in conducting workshops andevents to demonstrate the skill on what they learnt.I learnt the most vital lesson of my life that the fundamentalbasis of success is time-management.
My participation in extracurricularactivities inspired me to be on the face of organization committee. I was anorganizer of all the technical as well as cultural bodies of our college inseveral events. I’ve organized workshops and a National Level Technical Symposiumcalled VIVAAN in our college. Being in such responsible post, I learnt to buildup assets and reduce liabilities. I also acquired the skills of working in agroup, interacting with my fellow peers and faculty. Moreover, I’veparticipated in many social activities which concern helping people andcleaning environment. All these experiences have rewarded me with remarkable leadershipqualities, excellent organizing skills, team-working abilities and goodcommunication skills.
My endeavor is to become a research scholar at aninstitution, which aids research work. I intend to pursue a graduate program atyour Institution which will be another step to reach that goal and to realizemy efforts. I have visited the website of your University on the Internet andtook note of the research and development activities that are being carried outin the field of my interest. I know that it is impossible to have a comprehensiveunderstanding of many subjects in a lifetime. Hence, I want to master my skilland have an extensive knowledge of the specialized topics, which fascinated mein my Engineering course.
I believe that your graduate program would help me toaccomplish this objective.To conclude, I am aware of the effort and perseverancenecessary for the work and I am sure that I possess the requisite inspiration,intellectual ability and drive justify the demanding graduate program at your Institution.Given the opportunity, I shall try my best to live up to your standards and notfall short in my self-confidence.My knowledge eagerly awaits to be part of your institution.Thank you for your time and consideration.
