Curiosity is the first and the foremost quality which
drives a person towards learning new things. I have always believed that one
should never give up the habit of asking questions and this habit has been an
important facet of my creativity. I seek to invent new ideas by applying the
basic principles of an existing theory in uncommon ways.
I have originated from
a family where the highest priority was always given to good education. I
have studied in the best High School in my city and I have excelled in academics right from my school days. In school, I
actively used to secure one of the top positions in the class. I have
consistently been allured towards subjects that draw upon one’s analytical
my eyes clearly set on my goals, I took up mathematics and physical sciences in
my pre-university course. Engineering is embedded with mathematics and
physical sciences and my love for both mathematics and physics is like an icing
on the cake. A natural aptitude for mathematics,
a sense of logic, good grades, high academic credentials and a good rank in

NIT Raipur is a renowned
institution and one of the top 50 Engineering Colleges of my country.
NIT’s in India have
achieved prominence as the front runner in imparting quality engineering
education. The students joined here are very bright in their academics due to
the limited seats and hence, at the Institute we interact and live with the
best minds in the country.

has given me wide range of opportunity to enhance my skill in both theory and
“The student population is
divided into two groups, those who go to college to learn and those who go to
college to earn a degree.”
This quote explains my view on education. I always
wanted to learn much more about electronics and computers, which was solely
responsible for my keen interest in the core subjects. Subjects like Micro
processors and Micro Controllers, Embedded Systems, Switching Theory and Logic
Design, Electronic Devices and Circuits, Digital Signal Processing triggered my
interest in exploring the digital world around me and helped me learn the aspects of system implementation. On the other hand,
courses like Data Structure, Operating System, C, C++, JAVA, Data Communication
and Computer Network helped me understand how the concepts of computers are
applied to practical systems in day-to-day life.
I was always fascinated by the
way Embedded and automation technologies changed the life of human beings. So, I
did my summer internship at sI3 Indya Technologies, the best training company
in Embedded Systems and Robotics. I have
worked on the practical applications such as LED designing, Display patterns
etc during the internship. This internship had tapped my hidden potentialities.
In order to gain some industrial
exposure I visited Bharath Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL is the largest Telecom
company in India) in my sophomore year. The Inplant training helped me
understand the advanced routing techniques and instruments/hardware used in
transmitting and routing the wired and wireless based telephone calls.
In my final year, I have worked
on the project “Study
of Numerical Techniques in Antenna Simulation”. The performance of the
antenna element is analyzed using HFSS simulation software. The project being a
group work, refined me the virtues of group coordination, interaction along
with team work that are essential in the present day work scenario.
I always wanted to implement my
knowledge practically in order to gain more knowledge on the topics which I
learn. This intention encouraged me to work on projects like “Pick and place
objects using Robot (arms)” and “Touch screen control robot and home auto
machine”. I can call this period as the most productive time of my engineering
because I have learnt many new software technologies, programming and their
In today’s information age, having the knowledge of
electronics and communication together with computer science in a meaningful
and in depth manner is of great advantage.
There is a saying, which says, “The only thing Permanent in
life is Change”. This perfectly holds true to the world of Computer Science
where novel ideas are not a novelty. It is this novelty that entices me to this
field and gives me a deep sense of professional pride.
I believe in a holistic education
that supports both personal and professional development and thus I indulge
myself in several recreational and co-curricular activities. I have secured
fourth position in GREEN GANESHA competition organized by GO GREEN committee of
NIT Raipur. Also, I was a runner in the caroms conducted by ASSETS club of NIT
Raipur. Traits like leadership and responsibility were enhanced in me with all

in the field of Information System, I feel that graduate study at your University will
be the most logical extension of my academic pursuits and a major step towards
achieving my objectives. I have
selected (University of Cincinnati) after a comprehensive understanding of the
courses offered, various majors available in your program and distinctions of
the faculty. I
want to learn, satiate my never ending curiosity and make the optimum use of
technology with the help of my technical, communication and leadership skills.
I can assure you, if admitted, that I can commit myself to be an asset to my
department and during my graduate program, if given a chance of research/teaching
assistantship, I believe that I can fulfill the required duties with a high
degree of perfection and enthusiasm.
