Right to know that even the simplest appliances that

Right from my school days I have always questioned and
challenged text book concepts to explore and to understand the underlying
fundamental ideas. I have held a certain fascination towards the field of
Engineering and the years of study in school and college have helped in
amassing the knowledge I possess of this field. The purpose of pursuing a
Master’s degree is to deepen my knowledge, channelize my thought process and to
guide myself along the right path that would lead me to my goal, to be
forefront in the field of Electrical engineering.

During from my childhood, I had a curiosity to know
how all the electrical and electronic appliances around us work. Each and every
new appliance that came on the market not only shattered my preconceptions
about how much further can technology really go in terms of innovation, but it
also stretched the limits of my imagination. After my high school, I choose to
graduate in Electronics and Instrumentation engineering. In My under graduation,
I learned the basics of Electrical and Electronics and many of my child hood
questions were being answered during my course of study. I was astonished to
know that even the simplest appliances that we use every day contained complex
electrical architecture.

With my goals set on a Master’s degree, I embarked
upon an ambitious senior project in college, one that would make use of visible
light communication protocol based on IEEE.802.15.7 and AVR Microcontrollers.
This project involved PAN ID matching method to control the speed of
automobiles to a limited range. The project was titled as Advanced Driver Assistance system. It was rated one of the best
projects in my college during that academic year and earned S grade, which is
the top most grade. To have been in a successful project with my effort not
only gave me satisfaction, but it also kindled in me a growing desire to keep
achieving more and more which is my primary motive for continuing my studies. I
also presented a paper at a national level technical symposium on Wireless transmission of electricity.

In my opinion one can never truly learn to visualize a
solution to a problem from an engineer’s perspective until he has had first-hand
experience. Industrial visits and in plant trainings gave me that and much
more. I had a golden opportunity to undergo training at Subashri bio energies
(P) Ltd; This firm makes use of organic poultry waste to produce electricity and
this idea fascinated me. Here I was introduced to the method of power
production by using organic wastes at a very less cost, I also learnt various
techniques on power generation and distribution. It was at this place, where I
got to understand the importance of eco-friendly power production and power
production from renewable energy sources. Besides the training I have had the
opportunity to visit many power producing industries such as Ennore Thermal
Power Station and Neyveli lignite power corporation. The visits and in plant
training greatly complemented the theoretical classes I had taken in college
and it gave me a wider picture of power systems. This kept me eagerly
anticipating the day I could contribute to such a fascinating field. Given an
opportunity to pursue my Master’s degree at University of Alberta, I believe I
will get one step closer to my goal.

The major challenge that we face today in the 21st
century is providing energy to the increasing population and catering the energy
needs of modern industries. In India, we mostly rely on conventional methods of
power productions from fossil fuels. This has taken a toll on our environment.
Thus there is a need for us to produce energy from renewable sources. I strongly
believe that by incorporating eco-friendly techniques and by generating power
from renewable energy sources, we can cater the needs of the growing population
and the current Industrial revolution without harming our environment. This
belief in me and my strong emphasis on production of electricity from renewable
sources made me to take the decision of doing a Master’s program in Electrical
engineering with specializing in power systems. So that after my graduation, I
can work in a field that caters the needs of the society and thereby fulfilling
my career ambitions.

Apart from academics, I also actively engage myself in
extracurricular activities. I was an active member of the NSS (National service
scheme) and participated in many cleanliness awareness programs. I successfully
organized a quiz competition on latest advancements in the field of electrical
and electronics during my college symposium. After my graduation, I started
working as a teacher in an international school. Here I handled both physics
and mathematics for grade eleven students.

The reason I choose to study Master of engineering in
Electrical and computer science specializing in energy system at the University
of Alberta is that your university will provide me the platform where I can
learn to grow in the field of Electrical engineering and provide me the calibre
to match international parameters. You have one of the best laboratory
facilities such as the unique Nano & Micro fabrication facility and RTX
(Real Time Experimental laboratory, the latest equipment’s and a well-structured
curriculum. Being under the guidance of your experienced faculty will help me
to strengthen my knowledge and will help me achieve academic excellence. Your
training will help me develop my skills to manage the core aspects of electrical
engineering and thereby create a pathway for me to become an efficient
professional. Moreover, University of Alberta is one of the top ranked
universities in the world and has kept its standards high right from the time
when it was started in 1908.

I strongly believe that it is an Engineers
responsibility to make life better for everyone living on this planet. I
understand that I have to work hard and compete with top scholars from all
around the globe. I believe that my commitment towards everything I pursue and
my eminent academic records, makes me a prospective candidate to be admitted in
your university. My experience in your university is going to enhance my technical
skills and will help me build my career. At this moment I want to thank you for
giving me the opportunity to express myself and my aspirations.
