In the School of Information Science, there are experts in data management and workflow, like Professor Ludäscher, and experts in machine learning, like Professor Diesner and Professor Brunner. The program will definitely enable me to combine my study in undergraduate with cutting-edge data science technologies, which would give me tremendous assistance to succeed in other
I am writing this letter to express my interest in the Ph.D. program in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California at Santa Barbara. I would like to start by explaining some important points of my life in order to discuss my short and long-term professional goals and how they are shaped. I have always enjoyed studying mathematics and sciences. This led me to attend a high school with a special focus on subjects relating to mathematics and sciences. During the high school years, I and a friend of mine participated in the national secondary school research projects contest organized by TUBITAK - Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey.
My interest in the Computer Science major at Carnegie Mellon was first piqued while I was in the Microsoft Student Partners Program, where I met a Technical Evangelist from Microsoft who graduated from the course. I had heard from him how the nation’s best graduates of Computer Science were often recruited from Carnegie Mellon. Naturally, this keen interest sparked off by my encounter with him did not just stop there as I am now sitting at my desk writing my CMU supplementary essays. As someone who has been trying to find myself within the tech sector in the future, Carnegie Mellon’s vast ties to the technology world only serve to underscore its appeal. When entering an industry that changes as rapidly as technology, the onus is on myself to ensure that I am up to date with
I believe that only by pursuing a research career in chemistry I can satiate my inquisitive mind. Hence I decided to be a devotee of chemistry. From my childhood till now my academic standing is a thing which remained more or less constant. My inquisitive mind and competitive contemporaries always help me to be a bright student throughout my academic life. I always got some great persona with the indefectible understanding of science as my teacher, be it my school or my college.
When I was in high school, I like chemistry class the most because every experiment always made me so excited. I was curious what will happen when the chemical reaction take place. When I learned more about chemistry, I realized that this field of science can create incredible benefits with various applications. It is very fascinating. Consequently, I decided to study in Chemistry, Faculty of Science at Chulalongkorn University, Thailand.
I reviewed a lot of courses offered in various universities across the globe and I came to a conclusion to undergo Master of Science in Air Quality Control, Solid Waste and Waste Water Process Engineering at the University of Stuttgart for its curriculum and prowess in this sector. Moreover, the University of Stuttgart is one of the best universities of the world which provides international exposure with excellent infrastructure and research opportunities. I’m more fascinated about Master of Science in Air Quality Control, Solid Waste and Waste Water Process Engineering after interactions with the alumni of the
Right from the beginning of my education I have shown a keen interest in mathematics and physics that have strengthened my quantitative and analytical skills. This strength empowered me to secure 90% in SSC (10th grade). I passed my senior secondary school with 98.7% in mathematics and 90% in physics respectively and I gained an overall percentage of 95.2% marks in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, which were my main subjects. The competitive spirit within me has played a key role in all my academic successes. Pursuing engineering as my future was a natural decision to be taken because of my love towards science and technology.
My analytical ability, mathematical aptitude, logical understanding of concepts and high academic credentials helped me get into SASTRA University one of the premier university in Tamilnadu, India. Right from my first year of undergraduate studies I had shown great interest in the subjects linked to algorithm and database management. The hours that I had spent in my laboratories provided me a firm footing in my undergraduate courses. In my freshman and sophomore years, I participated in and contributed towards my university’s technical club. Being an active part of the group provided a valuable learning opportunity and led to me being voted as the schools General Secretary by the Deans and Professors of the school.
Masters of Science in Computer Science program offers a variety of courses combined with practical-orientation focusing on current research and innovation that will allow me to acquire a clear understanding of the subject and the skills to execute it. The outstanding work by Prof. Cyrus Shahabi in the area of ‘Databases’, ‘Geospatial and Multidimensional Data Management’ and research by Prof. Craig Knoblock in the field of ‘Information integration’ are few topics that resonate with my academic interests and professional aspirations. It would be an honor to study and work under their expert tutelage. I am looking forward to the opportunities to work in futuristic laboratories such as Information Laboratory, Institute for creative technologies, Information Sciences Institute and contribute to their research and development efforts that will help me gain valuable exposure to deepen the subject-matter knowledge and obtain professional experience. In addition, I am excited by the objectives of student organizations at Viterbi, such as Women in Computing, Code the Change and hope to make worthwhile contributions by active participation.
During my two years of study at NITIE, I came across quite a few exceedingly caring faculty members. Regarded as a father figure Prof. KKB, always ready to lend his ears to us, had a special disposition towards us as it was his panel that had shortlisted us. Prof. Donald with a polite smile, taught us project management and appraisal. He challenged us to examine a project and its financial aspects from various angles. Another fine professor, now no more, Prof SK Singh demonstrated foresight by ensuring inclusion of three programming languages (AUTOCODER, FORTRAN, COBOL) and a Systems Analysis course in our syllabus.
