And I know for sure the master program of Computer Engineering at University of Texas at Austin (UT) will help me with my goal and direct me through the right academic career path. After I finished high school I immediately applied for engineering college in King Abdulaziz University (KAU) without any hesitation. I knew that Computer Engineering is the right path for me. In KAU I refine my academic skills and my knowledge in that field. During my study I took a course in Microprocessor with Professor Muhammed Shafiq and there was a turning point of my academic life I discovered my strengths in that class I noticed how competitive I become when I work under challenging environment.
John Lennon once wrote, “When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” Our lives are clearly shaped by what we make of them. My goal in life is to use the knowledge and values that my parents and teachers have instilled in me to achieve my “happy” life through a rewarding pharmacy career and valued friendships. In the fall of 2018, I will begin my journey towards my career goals by attending Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.
In this paper, I will be reflecting on my first year as an Occupational therapy student at the University of The Witwatersrand. While reflecting, I have come to realise that my viewpoint and understanding of the profession of Occupational Therapy and the importance of occupation to Occupational Therapy have developed substantially throughout this year. In my opinion, my previous understanding of OT and occupations in OT was very basic and shallow compared to what I understand of this topic currently. This growth in understanding came about due to many learning events such as lectures, fieldwork and activities, however, two of the most significant learning events I have personally experienced this year have had a major impact on my learning experience. These two learning events, which are prominent events within my first year of studying OT, include the OT June exam and making a chair in APT (Appropriate Paper-based Technology) for a child with Cerebal Paulsy and Microcephaly.
Securing a rank of 444 out of 82,000 students, helped me get admission in prestigious Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur, one of the top five universities in India. I choose to pursue my Masters study in Thermal Science and Engineering because of my inclination towards thermal-fluids domain. During my first year of graduate studies advanced courses such as Computational Fluid Dynamics, Gas Turbine and Jet Propulsion, Convective Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics fueled my desire for a research career in thermal sciences. Also, during my master’s study, tutorials, practice problems given in the class fueled my interest in numerical programming, which lead to exploring different options like C, EES (Engineering Equation Solver),
I have taken practical courses mostly in Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer area and it inevitably increased my knowledge of the two. These practical courses helped me with a better understanding of the test setups and procedures. I have also conducted practical courses on numerical analysis, CAD drawing, Mechanical Engineering hand drawing etc. Every two year, my department organizes a conference called “International Conference on Mechanical Engineering (ICME)”, which is a great source of knowledge and information of the studies and researches going on around the world. There is also a division called “Bureau of Research, Testing and Consultation (BRTC)”; which has enabled me with different practical problems and their test
Knowing that the professor, Mr. John Doe, was a tough teacher, I asked him for the textbook so I could study and get ready for the class over the summer. Just arrived from Belize, I was determined to succeed. In class we learned about forces on simple members and then we put the members together to form a simple truss. At this point I had almost decided that structural engineering was the career for me. From there the class just took off: We went on to frames, distributed loads, considered friction; basically we were incorporating real world considerations into structural members.
I have taken training in ‘Anjali Power system, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India’ as trainee for two months. I learned making of servo based voltage stabilizers, constant voltage transformers and isolation transformers. In next semester, I have taken training in ‘Active Engineers, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India’ as trainee for two months. Company has expertise in making power and control panels for plants. Throughout this training, I learned need and working of switchgears systems, ways of controlling electrical parameters and necessary sequence of action to control equipment in
I used to not take advantage of the opportunities given to me. However, after hearing the stories and troubles that my parents have faced, I realized that I had to take the initial steps towards completing my goals and dreams. Consequently, I’ve immersed myself into what I do as it helps me grow as a person and take the first leaps towards achieving my goals/dreams. I’ve been exposed to science my entire life, an intriguing subject with mystery. Ever since I was little, my main desire/goal has been to pursue a career in the science field.
CE2.2 Background Automatic card stamping machine was my major project in the partial fulfilment of the requirement for the award of the degree of Bachelor of Technology. This project was chosen by me as the major project in the final year of engineering along with my project partners. I saw that this project was suggested by a faculty from our department for opting as a major project, so this seized my attention and I discussed this topic with my friends to opt. Afterwards, when they also find it interesting, I went to the concerned lecturer Er.Sanjeev Kumar for discussing the same and to know more details about the work to be done in this project. I, along with few of my friends, discussed fundamental objective with him.
Many of my quirky marketing strategies are direct results of my quirkiness as a student. - What were your career plans when you started IIT and how did they change over time. I got into IIT by doing self study, and like many other freshers, I was keen to explore my true passion while at IIT. I find IIT Bombay to have so many learning opportunities, that its tough not to find your true calling here. In my first year, I focused on learning everything that I can, by joining various clubs and groups.
