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
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.
Arjun Sathiyanarayana Rao M.Eng : Computer Science "As long I live, so long do I learn. He who seeks new knowledge exalts himself. It is the duty of man to move ahead in quest of knowledge --To ascend and march ahead is the path of process" is said in Aatharva Veda one of the four Vedas of ancient Hindu scriptures. I most certainly share the above sentiment, I opted to major in Information science and Engineering during which I took lots of interesting courses and some not so interesting ones, top scoring in discrete mathematics in my class, enjoying my time during microprocessor lab, interfacing hardware with software; whenever the stepper motor worked the way I wanted, it invariably evoked a sense of euphoria in me, that lab at times was
“Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man.” – Swami Vivekananda I strongly believe in this statement that perfection is already there in man, existing in his heart and soul and education is the medium through which we are able to demonstrate and manifest that perfection in us. My Love for Computers -- My Dream Career A fascination for Science and interest in the ever-growing world of technology have motivated me to take up Engineering. I choose to major in Computer Science and Information Technology with an intense urge to delve deeper into this challenging field. This century can be credited with have given birth to many ideas, visions and ways of living and working. One of this faith in technology is the panacea of all the problems of the mankind and a means to the human progress and development.
Apart from maintaining a good academic profile, I had also participated actively in many extra-curricular activities in my college. I have never neglected any opportunity for improvement. I always had immense liking towards English literature from childhood which motivated me to join ‘Speak Easy’, the literary club of my undergraduate college which conducted various activities in college like essay writing, debates, public speaking, role plays, group discussions etc. I presented a paper on ‘Google as a hacking tool’ at Quest, a national level technical symposium. I also presented a poster on ‘Cryptography’ at a national level technical fest.
I know a few people who have attended this University. It is always held in such high regards, and they greatly encouraged me to apply. My goals have always been to use my degree to get into a reputable company as a mechanical engineer and eventually my final ambition would be to create my own successful firm with my colleagues. I believe that a degree from this university will best set me on this path of success.
I have always been fascinated by the mathematics which is the basis of computing and very important for development of critical thinking. Because of this I selected science stream in my higher secondary education and scored high grades in 12th board exam. I was able to secure admission in one of the reputed universities L.D. College of Engineering. As the fascination for computer science seized me during my early school
My analytical ability, mathematical aptitude, logical understanding of concepts and high academic credentials helped me get into SASTRA University one of the premier university in Tamilnadu, India. Right from my first year of undergraduate studies I had shown great interest in the subjects linked to algorithm and database management. The hours that I had spent in my laboratories provided me a firm footing in my undergraduate courses. In my freshman and sophomore years, I participated in and contributed towards my university’s technical club. Being an active part of the group provided a valuable learning opportunity and led to me being voted as the schools General Secretary by the Deans and Professors of the school.
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
The field of engineering is quite vast with dozens of subdivisions that utilize different levels of thinking and overall interests. While deciding which field I wanted to go into I questioned my values and other skills that defined my character. I’ve always enjoyed helping people, design, and overall complex thinking. My extracurriculars throughout high school allowed me to explore these other aspects of my character such as the organization Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), that stretched my entrepreneurial thinking and teamwork skills, the school
