“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” So says Eleanor Roosevelt! His words truly inspired me and made me a dreamer - I dare to dream big. I’m so driven by my dreams that working hard towards making them a reality is second nature to me. Being the first engineer to pursue a master’s degree in a family of engineers, I now aim to keep building my knowledge base by first pursuing second Masters’ degree in the field of XXXXXXXXX, followed by a doctoral program, as I look forward to a research-oriented career in the field of manufacturing technology. As a teenager, I fell in love with Physics in my 8th grade, and my interest in the subject grew with age. It is this love for Physics, besides my excitement about…show more content…
This program, with provided me with an opportunity to delve deeper into this field and gain fundamental knowledge of the sub-disciplines. Being a passionate experimentalist, it was the laboratory sessions that particularly appealed to me during my undergraduate course. With the guidance and encouragement of my laboratory supervisors, I found myself striving to discover novel and more efficient solutions to problems. And this novel and practical approach was what helped me secure good grades in most lab sessions. Though Mechanical Engineering is perceived to be a strictly technical discipline, my endeavors helped fortify my belief that it is equally a form of art because it requires a creative perspective to unravel previously undiscovered solutions and unlock new horizons. I strongly believe in C.S. Lewis’ words that “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” Ever since I became one of the 50 engineering graduates and the only sophomore student from the Department of Mechanical Engineering – chosen from among lakhs of applicants in India – to bag the prestigious NASA project during my sophomore year, I set my own bar very high. I believe this rare accomplishment is my greatest achievement to…show more content…
I was always fascinated by how manufacturing engineering can be applied for practical purposes. But it was my two-month internship at India’s leading research and technology company, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Bangalore, in the year 2013 that sealed the deal for me. In this 50-day study project titled “Study on Manufacturing Technologies Used in Aerospace Applications”, the issue of friction stir welding was studied. With HAL focusing on aeronautical space, welding is of paramount importance. By testing the tensile strength on the universal testing machine, the best alloy for different spindle speed, travel speed and other process parameters were applied and
