I believe that only by pursuing a research career in chemistry I can satiate my inquisitive mind. Hence I decided to be a devotee of chemistry. From my childhood till now my academic standing is a thing which remained more or less constant. My inquisitive mind and competitive contemporaries always help me to be a bright student throughout my academic life. I always got some great persona with the indefectible understanding of science as my teacher, be it my school or my college.
I Shahabuddin hail from Silicon Valley of India, Bangalore. I spent my childhood in many different places, as in need of better higher education. I have been a logician all my life, I think what is realistic and act accordingly. I strongly believe in hard work and honesty and appreciate openness and integrity. 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.
Thomas Edison The Wizard of Menlo Park Thomas Edison once quoted, “I haven’t failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Whether known as a persistent believer, brilliant inventor, or just a pure genius, Thomas Edison changed the world, and this can definitely be seen in his creative ideas and his ability to make them come alive, including but not limited to the light bulb and telegraph. He left a legacy as an imaginative inventor. Thomas Edison was not only an accomplished innovator during his adult years, but also when he was a kid. As a child, Edison was inquisitive and eager to learn new things.
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 will not dream about success I’ll work for it, As the only child in the family I knew that I have a massive responsibility on my shoulders. My parents knew the value of education and they sent me to one of the prestigious colleges in the country. From a youthful age my heart was in the Science and Technology field. Constantly back in my primary schooling age I have reminded my mother “mother, I want be a scientist someday”. Whenever I found a chance to explore electrical equipments like toy cars I didn’t hesitate.
In one year, I earned myself a title of Microsoft Office Words, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook Specialists by Microsoft Corporation United States. I participated in multiple computer related competitions both nationally and internationally. One of my best achievements was a distinction for the International Assessments and Competition for Schools. Basic knowledge and mental strength ready, I decided to further my studies in Computer Science because Computer science is an intriguing discipline, conjoining both theory and practice. It requires thinking both in abstract terms and in concrete terms.
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 did not miss a chance to participate in competitions such as Kangaroo Mathematics Contest and other inter-school competitions. I took keen interest in science funfairs and competitions. In grade six, I was selected as a participant for a science competition held at our school. I chose to make a light house and a small town with street lights that would illuminate with LED bulbs. I worked with batteries and other electrical appliances and came out with a stunning science project.
SAMPLE STATEMENT OF PURPOSE – MECHANICAL ENGINEERING Since from my childhood, my interest is always been with mechanical devices. I always wanted to know how devices work.ie from designing to manufacturing. My curiosity on devices made me disassemble and reveal the inner functions of them. Support from my parents, encouragement from teachers and my keen interest in science and technology, made me choose to engineer as the perfect career choice. 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.
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.
