My fascination in the field of Electrical technology
and my curiosity to know how things around us work right from childhood
motivated me to take up engineering during under graduation. I choose Electronics
and Instrumentation as my major because of my fierce passion to explore how Electronics
and Electrical appliances around us work and of what they were built.
During My under graduation, I learned the basics of
Electrical, Electronics and Instrumentation both theoretically and practically.
In the course of study, I was exposed to various modules such as Electrical
circuit theory, Electrical machines, Control systems, Digital signal processing
and VLSI design. I was astonished by the power of Electrical & Electronics
and understood the impact it had in our daily life. This made me more
inquisitive towards Electrical engineering and created an interest in me to
explore its grass roots. I also became competent
in programming languages such as C, C++, Java, VHDL and Verilog.
The academic project that I worked during the final
year was titled Advanced Driver
Assistance system. It made 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. It was
rated one of the best projects in my college during that academic year. I also presented
a paper at a national level technical symposium on Wireless transmission of electricity. I have been on industrial
visits to power plants such as Neyveli lignite power corporation and Ennore
thermal power plants. Here I learnt how electricity was produced from thermal
energy. Also I was introduced to various areas of energy systems and control
During the final year of my study, I went for an in plant
training to 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. This made me more passionate about energy systems and I was curious to
explore the various techniques involved in it.
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 energy 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.
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. I believe that 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
dynamic curriculum, will help me to expertise in my field. Being under the supervision
of your experienced faculty will help me to grow my knowledge and keep pace
with the technical developments. Your training will help me develop my technical
skills to manage the core aspects of electrical engineering and thereby create
a pathway for me to cater the needs of this generation. 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 strongly believe that my commitment towards everything I pursue
and my eminent academic records, makes me eligible for admission in your university.
My experience in your university is going to enhance my education and will help
me to build my career. At this moment I want to thank you for giving me the
opportunity to express myself and my aspirations.
