Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to be successful in life. I have always wanted to be the better version of my parents and achieve many things in life. During my freshman year in High school, I knew I was going to major in business. I come from a household of five, my father, mother, two younger sisters, and myself. I am the first in my family to go to college and with that being said, I have always felt the pressure to be the best role model and example for my younger sisters.
The most integral part of this growth is the value system imbibed in me by my parents, teachers and my mentors and an intrigued liking for science. This played a vital role in my decision making for the future. As I finished high school I was selected for the Indian Naval Academy with merit ranking in the Top 25 in the country. However my liking for science guided me into pursuing a Bachelor degree in Electrical Electronics and Power (EEP) Engineering. This decision gave me ample opportunity to consolidate my creative energies and harness my technical aptitude.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE Sindhuja Suroju January 20, 2016 Learning is a continuous process in life which requires high level of dedication and commitment. My father, who is now a chief engineer of a power plant, has been saying this proverb from my childhood. I was able to inculcate the real essence behind the saying and followed it from my schooling. Machines have always fascinated me, right from gears to highly sophisticated ones. I was introduced to the world of electrical and electronics at the age of 11 when I curiously broke open an electric cooler to see what is inside it.
They had to work hard to put my brother and me through college but they imbibed the value of knowledge in us from a young age. I took up engineering as a career due to my innate interest but I was the first in my family to attend a univeristy with diversified community or to choose chemical engineering. So, transition into university was one the hardest things I had to do. I could overcome this and turn things around thanks to the support from faculty, friends and mentors I met later
But I am not able to get high profile job due to lack of higher degree from reputed university despite I was highest lady scorer in my college during my BBA. I was consistently good scorer and bright student throughout my school days and BBA. He loves me so much that he cannot see me in low profile job. Therefore, He started to encourage me for IELTS and apply for reputed university so that I can experience what he experienced in Manipal University. As he has seen my interest and curiosity in Accounting, he encouraged me to apply for MPA.
As a young lady, I was always intrigued by machines and automobiles. It was because of this fascination that I chose mechanical engineering. I took up an Engineering Entrance Exam and remained in the top one percentile of the 300000 students. As a result, I got admitted to the University College of Engineering, Osmania University, one of the prestigious engineering institutes in India. Even today, it’s a piece of pride to see myself as one of the few hundred students who actually succeed in getting admission to such an elite
Statement of Purpose Hailing from a family of engineers and entrepreneurs, I was naturally inclined towards Science and Mathematics from my early school days. My excellence in these subjects were clearly established when I participated and won various Science and Mathematics Olympiads. Without an iota of hesitation, I opted for the science stream during my high school. It was my father who first introduced me to the field of supply chain management. He retired as a Purchase Officer, after he retired voluntarily from the Indian Army.
‘One percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration’, one of the renowned adages said by Edison to define success which suits to my attitude aptly. At this point of time, I had finished my first sailing as a Junior Engineer and taken a wise decision to excel my future through pursuing Masters at University of New Orleans, LA which is an eternal dream waiting next to me. This aphorism has great impact on my life. ACADEMIC BACKGROUND: I had completed my schooling at Bhasyam High School, which is one of the best reputed schools in the state and passed out with 90% marks, I was among the top 5 percentile students in that year’s public examination for Secondary School Certificate and also one of the state level toppers in Mathematics and Social Studies. Subsequently, I got scholarship for my pre-university education at NRI academy which is a well-known college for education in India.
After four years of studying all those bulky books, completing all the assignments and passing all those fiery exams, I was finally able to establish myself as a civil engineer. The dream that I had seen few years ago when I chose to start my career as an engineering student was finally coming true. The opportunities and the innovations available in this field motivates me further more to opt for the higher studies and conduct researches that should prove a significant contribution to my society. I hope I will be able to take my first step towards this dream of mine, joining the graduate school in your university. The thirst to crave more and never be satisfied is the main aspect of human nature which has resulted in all the beautiful infrastructures in the world.
My interest in mechanical engineering starts with my teenage where I had the opportunity to see the thermal power stations where my grandfather worked. The huge boilers, turbines everything invoked my interest. I realized the importance of mechanical engineering in shaping the world through its sub-branch like manufacturing, designing, thermal engineering, automotive etc. These interests later spurred me to excel in the competitive common entrance examination to get an entry into engineering stream in the state. I was ranked average and got admission into SCMS School of engineering and technology, Kochi a pioneer self-financing engineering institute in Kerala state.
