The conviction of my life: “Somewhere over the rainbow, birds fly high; birds fly over the rainbow, why then, O why can’t I?”
The human mind is full of extraordinary ideas. To achieve success, one needs to dig deep in the realms of one’s mind. An exchange of ideas leads to multiplication and improvement of the ideas and also helps in understanding the mind-map of people. Knowledge, Perceptiveness, Awareness and Communication at most levels are the most significant qualities I possess and nurture. In order to further, professionally, develop these aforementioned qualities, I aspire to enrol myself for a Master’s program in your esteemed university. A strong belief in this program provided by your school, I seek to embark on a journey to discover myself.

At _____ College of Engineering, Vidyavihar (University of Mumbai) I enjoyed my courses, but the one which interested me to a great extent was Advanced Engineering Mathematics. The first two semesters were intense where I learned to solve nth order differential equations and Integral Calculus, and Multivariable Calculus. Later on, I learnt topics such as Laplace Transforms, Fourier Transforms and Z-transforms, which form the heart of Digital Signal Processing and also have various applications in the Communications field as well. The last course in Mathematics during the fourth semester was intensive in the study of Probability and Sampling Theory, which I understand is one of the most important tools for data analysis and modeling. The idea of making various mathematical models and then analyzing the same based on various circumstances fascinates me. I have consistently performed well in Applied Mathematics during my first four semesters.

While Math is important, there are various other subjects that need to be understood before you apply mathematical principles and models to solve problems. My engineering coursework has made me aware of the various interdependencies between the various subjects. I am familiar with the computer languages C, C++, and JAVA. I have also worked in the areas of Embedded C for micro-controllers such as 8051 and ATMega128. In addition, I have worked with MATLAB in subjects pertaining to Digital Signal Processing and Communication Technology such as CTSS and DTSS. I have developed a special interest in the topic of ‘Algorithm design’ where I found concepts on designing quite intriguing and challenging my intellect.  With an interest in industrial engineering and an ambition to learn more via the medium of projects and practical studies, I am working on my final year project which is ‘Industrial Monitoring System’ to sends alerts via a GSM and a Zigbee module to the incharge of the plant. Thus, my undergraduate coursework has made me an academically sound person, with a powerful base in Applied Math.

I strongly believe that several concepts including derivatives, CDO investments, swap funds have become the incidental villains of the recent recession. If refined models are established which can effectively execute risk transfer without creating instability, these very financial instruments can become the pillars of modern economy. I am aware that this is not an easy task and that team interaction, group management, and working with global clients will be vital to achieve the next “world economic revolution”, of which I hope to be a part.

Besides academia the 3 years of college life involved a number of extra curricular activities. I have participated in Robotics workshops conducted in our college. I also presented on ‘Hyperspectral imaging’ in our college techfest ‘Prakalpa 2012’. I have also been quite active in sports and I have participated in squash tournaments conducted at our club. Participation in such tournaments has increased by confidence and has made me more aggressive in a positive way. Now I wish to take part in various activities at your  club and add value to your student bodies.

My aim is to excel in the chosen field and seek knowledge from the best resources and faculty available. I would also like to improve my competence level with broader outlook and contribute in my professional life with enhanced perspective and knowledge. I also believe that there is always a scope for improvement because learning is a continuous process which will ultimately lead to improved performance. I believe a Master’s degree from your University will provide me with the ideal platform on which I can build upon in pursuit of realizing my goal.

I look forward to being a part of the incoming Fall Class of 2013 at Arizona State University.
