Heartbeat racing at 250 km/h, waiting to implode at any moment, I wait in anticipation for my SPM results. Blood, sweat and tears have been put all these while for today’s ultimate life defining moment. Reminiscing the past, I remembered pulling all-nighters, spending my spare time reading through interesting science articles to feed my thirst for more understanding about the algorithmic world. I always had a thing for electronics gadgets since I was a kid. Dismantling and assembling gadgets have always been my favourite pre-sleeping activity.
I was always obsessed with repairing the lamp, my toys and doing everything with my own hands. However the first time I was attracted by engineering was during my freshman year in college. A friend and I were chosen by my professor to participate in the National Undergraduate Scientific and Technological Innovation Project. It was an interesting and fruitful experience for me since it helped me win second prize in the Science and Technology Innovation Competition for Undergraduate Students and inspired me to want to create more innovation which could be useful and bring convenience to our everyday life. In the design that won second prize, we wanted to make equipment to demonstrate the interesting phenomenon of non-Newtonian fluids.
Since my childhood I have always wanted to be in the field of hardware and heavy machinery i.e Mechanical, and as I grew up this dream has been coming true little by little. I was enormously encouraged by my pre university results and I took up mechanical engineering as my major in my Bachelor’s college. I have always been an average student in studying theory but I have shown my interests in practical working more effectively. I believe that reading books is to recognize the subject. Lack of practical learning and learning only through reading books may be the reason for not having a higher score in my Bachelor’s Degree.
From my earliest memories, I have had a dream, a steady light, guiding me through difficulties of my life. That goal for me has been to become a beneficial member of the human race. From childhood, I was encouraged toward education by my family and relatives because I had a talent for mathematical questions and calculations, as well as a vivid imagination and a clear memory for poems and numbers. The encouragement of my family became the first incentive I had toward pursuing electrical engineering as my field of study at university. When it was my first year of school at the age of seven, my father had a cardiac arrest and had been out of work for fifteen years and had challenges with pain before he died when I was a sophomore at the university.
SAMPLE STATEMENT OF PURPOSE – MECHANICAL ENGINEERING Since from my childhood, my interest is always been with mechanical devices. I always wanted to know how devices work.ie from designing to manufacturing. My curiosity on devices made me disassemble and reveal the inner functions of them. Support from my parents, encouragement from teachers and my keen interest in science and technology, made me choose to engineer as the perfect career choice. 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.
From the complex design of a ship to the simplicity of Archimedes Principle, my fascination about engineering was substantiated by the fact that I was always within the top 5% in a batch of 240, because of which I received a merit based scholarship from the University. I scored perfect 10 graded points average in one of the semesters and 9.21 CGPA during my four years at Tolani Marine Time University. Due to my insightful knowledge, I was asked to take tutorial classes by the then Program Chair, Mr. Indra Kumar Basu, for juniors during my under graduate program, in Mathematics and
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.
On the threshold of my high school graduation, I had my heart set on studying Social Work, as being Vice President of Student Union of Chu Van An high school, I had always loved designing and organizing social activities and events . Nevertheless, as the highly competitive university entrance exams approached, my parents had other ideas for me. Since the world was still reeling from the global financial crisis of 2008-2009, they urged me to major in courses related to business, which were very promising majors at the time. As is customary in Vietnam, I followed my parents’ wishes, and in hindsight I am very glad that I did. In my freshman year, however, I struggled constantly having to meet the requirements of classes focused on Philosophy, Informatics and other general subjects which are supposedly irrelevant to my own major- Business English.
Apart from being the cultural head of the school, I represented my college at various inter-college competitions & fests. Not to leave out the sports section, I captained my school, college and company volleyball and football teams with commendable
But with the immense passion, I finally completed my study at Institut Teknologi Nasional and graduated with honor from Visual Communication Design. During four years of my undergraduate study, I truly enjoyed the courses that help me improve my senses in exploring colors and composition such as “Applicative Illustration” which has led me to create a contemporary illustration book of Batik from Trusmi Cirebon as my final year project. The main goal of this project is to deliver the valuable messages behind the philosophy of Batik by illustrating the motifs with lively colors without changing its original form, in order to broaden the understanding of young generation towards Batik as one of the greatest Indonesia culture heritage. Through this experience, I could fuse the passion for design, art, and fashion into an artistic and communicative creation. Nevertheless, concentrating more on how to deliver the
