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 my childhood days, 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. This curiosity in me made to
choose Electronics and Instrumentation engineering as my major in under
graduation. During that period, I learned the basics of Electrical and
Electronics and many of my child hood questions were being answered. 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 advanced equipment’s, well-structured
curriculum and your experienced faculty will help me to 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. My
experience at the university of Alberta will not only strengthen my education,
but will also shape me develop as a professional. I strongly believe that my
eminent academic records and my commitment towards everything I pursue
qualifies me for admission in your university. I look forward to the day when I can proudly state that I am a graduate
student in my dream university. At this moment I want to thank you for
giving me an opportunity to express myself and my aspirations.
