These golden words said by an American Entrepreneur, Jim Rohn, perfectly second my decision to pursue a MS in Chemical Engineering. I have rediscovered my passion for Chemical Engineering and decided to groom myself as a better Chemical Engineer. Hence, I wish to take the path of academics and research in order to sharpen my skills, deepen my acumen on the subject and meet my objectives. This course is actually close to my expectations and interests. Chemical Engineering has always been my passion and obsession since my childhood.
The most integral part of this growth is the value system imbibed in me by my parents, teachers and my mentors and an intrigued liking for science. This played a vital role in my decision making for the future. As I finished high school I was selected for the Indian Naval Academy with merit ranking in the Top 25 in the country. However my liking for science guided me into pursuing a Bachelor degree in Electrical Electronics and Power (EEP) Engineering. This decision gave me ample opportunity to consolidate my creative energies and harness my technical aptitude.
Ever since I was little, my main desire/goal has been to pursue a career in the science field. This passion for science has flowered throughout my life, especially during high school as I have taken plenty of science courses while taking advantage of the more in-depth classes (AP classes). In these classes, we have done various labs, but none of them has had such an effect on me other than the electrochemistry lab. A few months ago, in my chemistry class, I carried out an electrochemistry lab to examine the power of the galvanic cell. The lab made me like a researcher in a lab, it felt like the real deal as I was using statistical software, voltmeters, wires, diluted chemical solutions, and making my own battery.
ACADEMIC STATEMENT OF PURPOSE Over a casual dinner-table conversation a few years ago with a chemical engineer, my curiosity about his profession led to quite an engaging discussion between us. Quite frankly, I was amazed by the several innovations which the Chemical Engineering fraternity has bought about over the years and which have really changed the lives of so many people across the globe. For example, he told me the dramatic change in the gasoline production levels which came about due to the Houdry Process in 1934. It set me thinking on what a remarkable opportunity I had to channelize my love of chemistry & physics to pursue my higher education in the field of chemical engineering & make a career in this field. Once in college, I found that chemical
It were my school teachers that inspired and motivated me to cultivate this interest of creating things by taking up civil engineering . Surat , my home town has been under great accelerated development .Surat ranks fourth in a global study of fastest developing cities conducted by The City Mayors Foundation, an international think tank on urban affairs. Most of developments were in real estate and infrastructural field. I was very much interested to make some serious contribution in on going development and so I took civil engineering as my under graduate course . After three and half years of undergraduate study in Civil Engineering, I feel completely satisfied with my decision to choose engineering as my career option as it has revealed most pragmatic and direct approach to tackle human problems to me.
“For Knowledge Itself Is Power”. This is one of my favorite precepts and at this point in my life when I have just completed my graduation and my future spreads in front of me like a dream this adage has never influenced my life more than this before. Knowledge and proper training are essential to succeed in today's highly competitive world. The best place where I can achieve this is in the United States of America- the undisputed leader in developing new products. Not only is United States is the birthplace of my chosen field of study, it has also nurtured it for its full growth and continuous development.
An insatiable thirst therefore pushed me to take Engineering as a career path after my high school education where I have developed a good understanding of various concepts in electronics. Nevertheless, this is an era of ‘change’ wherein each new day sees a spate of new challenges and technologies, in order to achieve my career goals of integrating theory and practice, keeping up with the cutting edge of technologies and to provide the fruits of my research to the people of the nation, I decided that pursuing Master’s program would be the best way to realize my goals.
However, this determination for success paid off by my sophomore year when I began to thrive in my science coursework. The lessoned that I learned from this is that preparation beforehand can save you from struggles after the fact. My goal for my duration of the Master of Science in Preclinical Sciences Program is to have an advanced preparation that will set me up for success in medical school.
Since my college days, I have been keen towards the scientific revelations and participated in numerous scientific projects to meet my desire for knowledge. And soon it became my dream to be a part of that scientific circle and to engage myself in the welfare of the mankind of the world through incipient revelations. A further step I took towards my dream when I enrolled myself into Materials and Metallurgical
This project provided me an opportunity to apply my theoretical knowledge on wastewater and design of septic tanks. With this experience, I have understood how thorough one has to be in research before actually trying it out. I had to refer to various sources and weigh in the pros and cons of each and every method available. My daily interactions with the Associate professor in BMS College of Engineering made me realize how diligent one needs to be in research work. Currently, I am working as a Chemical Engineer Trainee as a part of operational excellence team at Kemwell Biopharma Pvt.
