My interest in applied sciences such as engineering finds its roots in my school days. Fundamental concepts of physics and mathematics always provided me with intellectual satisfaction. Study of such subjects expanded the horizons of my thinking. I was always intrigued by the way complex machinery is manufactured, assembled and put to work to form sophisticated systems such as cars, aircrafts and so on. This fueled my curiosity and inspired me to choose courses related to Mechanical Engineering discipline for undergraduate study.
My inclination towards mechatronics found a practical form during my internship at Ashok Leyland (Industry chapter), the second largest commercial vehicle manufacturer in India, where I was exposed to in depth knowledge about industrial design practices and problem-solving techniques which helped me to solve long lasting problems including “Shift Cable failure in the Automatic Manual Transmission (AMT) vehicles” and “Heavy warranty failures involved in Over Drive Gear Pitting at Tipper and Haulage Trucks”. During this task, I was introduced to AVL Cruise, a vehicle performance simulation software and ROMAX Designer which simulates real-time road load data on the concept level gearbox. This experience further reinforced my disposition to join an automotive industry where mechatronics plays a vital role. Eventually I joined Rane Group of
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.
I graduated in the year 2012 that's when I started to really appreciate some courses I took, my job as Software Engineer changed the entire outlook I had towards computer science in general and Software Engineering and coding in particular. My job involved fixing bugs, and adding features to an existing product; here I learned and appreciated why one has to follow defined standards while coding; coding standards are like grammar, rules you follow so there could be an effective communication and working becomes lot easier. Next, I worked as a part of three member team that was to develop a reporting tool software to extract data from a Oracle Database and export it into an excel file, this is where I learned how important a software architecture and software model is because maintainability and scalability is something that was
“An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't.”-Anatole France This has been the catch-line throughout my life and I’m a kind of person who likes to experiment and learn things than merely referring books. I strongly believe in introspection as it gives me a sense of direction. The ensuring statement of purpose is meant to put forth my aspiration to pursue my career through Masters in Industrial Engineering at your esteemed university, as well as description of my plans subsequent to my graduation. In this ever changing world of Engineering and Technology, passing day makes them obsolete, I want to attain the highest level of
When I was given toys, I hardly played with them rather tried to dismantle it and try to know the mechanism running it. During school days, I have participated in many science exhibitions which further motivated me towards taking my knowledge and experience onto a higher and advanced level. With this desire and curiosity to understand machines and mechanisms, I chose to complete my graduation in Mechanical Engineering. In the first year of my graduation, the subject of workshop technology was offered which helped me to understand the basics of manufacturing. It involved study and working on machines like Lathe, Milling, Universal Grinding Machine, and other specific machinery.
Also, I would like to engage myself in research where the waste product could be recycled into the manufacturing process and could be seen as a resource and not waste since most natural resources are depleting in the society and more wastes are being produced daily. Growing up as a child, the pursuit of knowledge has been my supreme goal in life. I believe that science and engineering are important factors in life and as such took a course in science during my high school education where my electives were technical drawing, physics, chemistry and elective mathematics. I got dawned to pursue materials engineering at the undergraduate level during one chemistry section where I was surprised to see that even though diamond, the hardest natural substance, and graphite, a very soft material, are all allotropes of carbon. This spurred me to research more on the causes of this disparity.
Pursuing engineering as my future was a natural decision to be taken because of my love towards science and technology. To study in this field, I had to overcome hurdles, a common entrance examination, which I had to take along with hundreds of thousands of students, all aspiring to get through. I passed with great desire, being placed in the top 1.5% of all students who took the examination. I took up Mechanical Engineering in prestigious Koneru Lakshmaiah University as my undergraduate
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.
