Then I quickly realized what my teacher said me when I was in school “No computer. No future.” So, I eagerly waited for the time to officially enter into the Computer Science profession. But, to be honest Computer Science is my passion first, and profession next. I took Computer Science and Engineering as my B. Tech branch.
The curiosity to know more about computers motivated me into getting certified in computer courses when I was only in the 9th grade. The course also aroused an intense desire to know more about computer science. I carried forward my high school level computer knowledge and scored 90 out of 100 in computer science at the pre-university level. This factor too motivated me to choose a career in computer science. Personal satisfaction has also played a key role in decisions relating to my career.
I am a climber, to be precise, I am an explorer. When I look into my academic career closely, I also see the same me here, the same exploring nature. I am that kind of person who is keen to explore my surrounding problems and try to make an effort to solve those. I am really lucky that I have got the chance to complete my undergrad from BUET, the best engineering university in Bangladesh. It was the beginning of my senior year, when I was first introduced to machine learning, through the course Artificial Intelligence (CSE 401), which subsequently helped me to get acquainted with its manifold applications in data science.
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.
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.
I found programming to be an interesting application of math and logic. At that time my motivation to pursue computer science came from inter-school programming contests and national cyber olympiads. I was awarded the Mr & Mrs George medal for obtaining the highest marks in computer application
Motivation Letter I have always believed in a life with a purpose and in looking forward to get the best out of life. Right from the school I had a penchant towards Mathematics, Science and research in general. This led me to take Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as my major subjects in Matriculation. My innate strength has been my quantitative and analytical abilities which instilled in me a special interest for Mathematics and Physics. I scored 90% in Mathematics and Physics in Matriculation Exams 2006.
Later I have concentrated little more on coding and solved many arithmetic and logical problems leads me to gain some knowledge on technology. The understanding and innovation of technologies that matter to human life improvement were the two driving forces that inspired me to choose Engineering as my stream in my Bachelor’s degree. I was enthusiastic about pursuing a degree in the field of Computer Science owing to the rapid development of Software and Information Systems that took the IT world by a storm. This fever drove me to choose Computer Science
I always got some great persona with the indefectible understanding of science as my teacher, be it my school or my college. Acquiring knowledge from these influential teachers I scored 90.125% marks (topped in the class) in my 10th standard with 99% marks in science, which widened my road to science. Then I scored 86.8% (topped in the class) in my 12th standard with 92% in Chemistry and 100% in Mathematics. This huge marks brought me INSPIRE fellowship, given by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, given to the top 1% student of each state board. Even though I cleared very competitive entrance examination for engineering, but my thirst in Chemistry led me to take Chemistry Honours for my undergraduate studies with subsidiaries subject Mathematics and Physics in Krishnath College, one of the best colleges under University of Kalyani, India.
I realized that only through graduate study would my thirst be satiated. Right from my childhood days I had all the motivation and enthusiasm for science and technology. My passion for computers started when I used to play computer games during my childhood. My parents and teachers played a very important role in shaping my future. They supported me throughout my career.
