The basis of our future is the knowledge we have obtained in the past is a concept that I have truly believe in. The foundation of my journey towards becoming an engineer was laid in India’s Premier Steel City, Jamshedpur. With regular visits to the steel factory, the world of machines and mechanics started fascinating me. As a young kid, I once went with my father to a Car Servicing Shop, I was amazed how by using a small handle, the huge car could be lifted, Pascal’s law was unknown to me, but it did fascinate me as how a man could make their work easier by use of simple machines. Each new concept put forth a new question but I wasn’t able to define it.
This fueled my curiosity and inspired me to choose courses related to Mechanical Engineering discipline for undergraduate study. In college, my interest and imagination were strengthened by courses like Strength of Materials, Theory of Machines, Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics they being natural extensions of physics and also demanded a high
By doing so, my brother encouraged me to read further about engineering, and a few books later, I knew what I was devoting my life to. The more I learn about mechanical engineering, the more assured I become that a career as a mechanical engineer is what’s best suited to me. During my college carer, I have studied many subjects connected
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.
For all of my life, I have had a skill and a great interest in the design and construction of a variety of objects and machinery. I have known since day one that all i wanted to do is design brand new and innovative technology. I have chosen Waterloo as my first choice of education for my future career as a mechanical engineer for many reasons. One being the schools amazing reputation as a school of applied sciences, having been given the nickname “MIT of the north” by many. I know a few people who have attended this University.
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.
Faster, easier, more efficient; that’s what being an industrial engineer is all about.” This was the time I was thinking about my future plans, whether to work or pursue my higher education. Industrial Engineering is perfect amalgam of subjects pertaining to mechanical and industrial field. The most distinctive aspect of industrial engineering is the flexibility it offers. Industrial engineers can work in any context or environment. I have a passion for streamlining things – making processes – I choose to be a logistics manager for a inter university competition designing testing and fabricating race cars and marketing manager getting subscriptions raising funds so that the show goes on.
I have particularly enjoyed studying Engineering Management, Industrial Engineering, Production Technology, Machine drawing, and Operation Research. These subjects helped me gain a better and deeper understanding of Industries as well as ignited that passion even further. I especially loved studying Machine Drawing and able to secure second rank in this subject in my college. I had the opportunity to gain knowledge about basic machining processes like facing, turning, drilling by hands-on experience in a college workshop. I have also worked with software like AutoCAD and Pro-E and CNC
It was only in grade 11 that I understood that hard work was an essential ingredient in attaining success in life. During my Childhood, I was always inquisitive and dubious about how things work. This is when my parents recognized my knack for being an Engineer. As I grew up I had natural inclination towards Maths, Physical Sciences and Automobiles which urged me to choose Engineering as my Undergraduate stream. Having secured an overall aggregate of 96.8% and emerging a School topper in the higher secondary examinations, I was able to pursue my undergraduate program at the College of Engineering Guindy, Anna University, one of the oldest and prestigious engineering institutions in India.
In the past four years at Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), I have successfully adapted to the intensive college study. With days and nights of hard work, I rose from rank 40 to rank 10 among 93 students in my class. During the four months’ exchange study at University of California Riverside (UCR), I also motivated my self to take extra courses, like Discrete Structure, in Computer Department. Moreover, intensive mathematics and computer science knowledge has been learn in courses and researches. In my junior year, my classmates and I stimulated the grain growth of a new copper alloy with Monte Carlo Method.
