During my undergraduate studies, I enjoyed myself in the realm of knowledge. “Genuis is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” – Thomas Edison. Devoted and hardworking, I achieved a cumulative GPA of Specification of 8.17/10 ranked me the first in my class of 100 students. Additionally, my overall GPA is among the top 3% out of 350 students of the Department (of Civil Engineering). In recognition of my consistent exellence, I was decorated with many honors and scholarships for consecutive years.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE Ever since my childhood, technology always had my attention. I was very curious to know how the machines and gadgets around me work. Particularly computers elevated my curiosity and made me wonder how they work. The ease with which a computer can solve problems which are impossible by humans with that speed, saving our precious time even though it is invented by a human amaze me. Then I have decided to become an engineer where my work helps to reduce the human effort in any form.
People always fascinated to find the answer to this question - what do I want to do in life. To disclose the mystery, we seek guidance from our family, friend, mentor, teacher, and even society, culture, environment mold our predilection on setting goals and expectations of life. Like others, this complexity of life bewildered me in my early age. However, all these years one inclination remain unchanged- play a role in making the world a better place. In this conquest, after higher secondary school, I began some research in order to find out a career that possesses considerable influence on socioeconomic change, environmental condition, and most importantly overall development.
I was never sure what I wanted to do when I grew up, but some of my classes have opened my eyes to new things and being an industrial engineer sounded pretty good to me. Let me tell you why. “What do industrial engineers do?” you might be thinking to yourself. They do many things, including but not limited to; Review production schedules, engineering specifications, process flows, and other information to understand methods that are applied and activities that take place in manufacturing and services. Figure out how to manufacture parts or products, or deliver services, with maximum efficiency and Develop management control systems to make financial planning and cost analysis more efficient.
I chose Industrial Engineering and Management, accredited by the NBA Tier 1 (Washington Accord), offered at BMS College of Engineering. My undergraduate program was a judicious mix of theory and practice. Fascinating subjects like Operations Research, Materials Management, Supply Chain and Logistics Management, Production Management and Operations Management boosted me into learning these subjects in depth. This keen interest has been reflected over my score. I have secured a cumulative GPA of 8.62 out of 10 so far.
S. Amarnadh. In my junior year, I have fabricated a demo website of customer and operator information for a software industry called MIRACLE SOFTWARE SYSTEMS along with a team of six members. These projects clearly depicted the fusion of various trades of computer science engineering. I also presented papers on “DNA COMPUTING”, “CLOUD COMPUTING” and “MOBILE COMPUTING” for which I received positive reviews from my professors and peers. I regularly attend guest lectures, workshops and conferences to be in tune with the latest developments and I keep myself abreast with the latest technologies by reading
Few months ago, while reading through the histories of various automobile enterprises I was surprised to find out that it was the ‘Industrial Engineer’ and not the ‘Automobile Engineer’ who brought about phenomenal changes in the automotive industry. The Industrial Engineer has always been the key, because it was mainly the strategies like Mass Production Techniques by Ford, Assembly Line Manufacturing by GM and Just in Time and Lean Manufacturing Techniques by Toyota that propelled them towards leadership in the automotive sector. This reading experience created a desire in me to know more about Industrial Engineering. On further research, I found that Industrial Engineering had a key role to play in every business, from manufacturing to marketing. It echoed my line of interest as this was exactly what I was looking to do in life; improving the performance of an establishment through my mathematical, computational and creativity skill sets.
An insatiable thirst therefore pushed me to take Engineering as a career path after my high school education where I have developed a good understanding of various concepts in electronics. Nevertheless, this is an era of ‘change’ wherein each new day sees a spate of new challenges and technologies, in order to achieve my career goals of integrating theory and practice, keeping up with the cutting edge of technologies and to provide the fruits of my research to the people of the nation, I decided that pursuing Master’s program would be the best way to realize my goals.
PERSONAL STATEMENT “Time and tide wait for no man”, this we all know. Hence, having done an inspiring four-year course in Electronic Engineering, I would like to put to use this knowledge to do my Masters in Science. This would give me the leading edge in technology and the practical low-down and information I require. For the past few decades man is advancing into the unknown realms of technology and science. This advancement is to make life easy and to increase human comfort at home and at work and I would like to be an integral part of such betterment.
On dismantling these devices, I was amazed by the several devices inside. When I was studying in my 10th grade, we were given a task to undertake a mini project, that’s when I made a simple fire alarm using a heat sensor and a couple of transistors and diodes. Later on, I figured out that hardware had several limitations that only programming could overcome. With almost every small task of this world performed through programmed devices and the fast-paced innovations inspired me to delve deeper and gain more knowledge through research. I did not want to compromise with my admiration but this ardent interest lets me pursue my passion of becoming an Engineer.
