My interest in the field of Electrical technology andmy curiosity to know how things around us work right from childhood motivatedme to take up engineering during under graduation. I choose Electronics andInstrumentation as my major because of my fierce passion to explore how Electronicsand Electrical appliances around us work and of what they were built. In Myunder graduation, I learned the basics of Electrical, Electronics andInstrumentation both theoretically and practically. In the course of study, Iwas exposed to various modules such as Electrical circuit theory, Electricalmachines, Control systems, Digital signal processing and VLSI design. I wasastonished by the power of Electrical & Electronics and understood theimpact it had in our daily life.
This made me more inquisitive towards Electricalengineering and created an interest in me to explore its grass roots. The academic project that I worked during the finalyear was titled Advanced DriverAssistance system. It made use of visible light communication protocolbased on IEEE.
802.15.7 and AVR Microcontrollers. This project involved PAN IDmatching method to control the speed of automobiles to a limited range. It wasrated one of the best projects in my college during that academic year.
I also presenteda paper at a national level technical symposium on Wireless transmission of electricity. I have been on industrialvisits to power plants such as Neyveli lignite power corporation and Ennorethermal power plants. Here I learnt how electricity was produced from thermalenergy. Also I was introduced to various areas of energy systems and controlsystems. During the final year of my study, I went for an in planttraining to Subashri bio energies (P) Ltd; This firm makes use of organicpoultry waste to produce electricity and this idea fascinated me.
Here I wasintroduced to the method of power production by using organic wastes at a veryless cost, I also learnt various techniques on power generation anddistribution. It was at this place, where I got to understand the importance ofeco-friendly power production and power production from renewable energysources. This made me more passionate about energy systems and I was curious toexplore the various techniques involved in it.The major challenge that we face today in the 21stcentury is providing energy to the increasing population and catering the energyneeds of modern industries. In India, we mostly rely on conventional methods ofpower productions from fossil fuels. This has taken a toll on our environment.Thus there is a need for us to produce energy from renewable sources.
I stronglybelieve that by incorporating eco-friendly techniques and by generating powerfrom renewable energy sources, we can cater the needs of the growing populationand the current Industrial revolution without harming our environment. Thisbelief in me and my strong emphasis on production of electricity from renewablesources made me to take the decision of doing a Master’s program in Electricalengineering with specializing in energy systems. So that after my graduation, Ican work in a field that caters the needs of the society and thereby fulfillingmy career ambitions.The reason I choose to study Master of engineering inElectrical and computer science specializing in energy system at the Universityof Alberta is that your university will provide me the platform where I canlearn to grow in the field of Electrical engineering and provide me the calibreto match international parameters. You have one of the best laboratoryfacilities such as the unique Nano & Micro fabrication facility and RTX(Real Time Experimental laboratory, the latest equipment’s and a dynamiccurriculum. Being under the supervision of your experienced faculty will helpme to grow my knowledge and keep pace with the technical developments. Yourtraining will help me develop my technical skills to manage the core aspects ofelectrical engineering and thereby create a pathway for me to cater the needsof this generation.
Moreover, University of Alberta is one of the top rankeduniversities in the world and has kept its standards high right from the timewhen it was started in 1908.I strongly believe that it is an Engineersresponsibility to make life better for everyone living on this planet. Iunderstand that I have to work hard and compete with top scholars from allaround the globe. I strongly believe that my commitment towards everything I pursueand my eminent academic records, makes me a prospective candidate to be admittedin your university. My experience in your university is going to enhance my technicalskills and will help me build my career.
At this moment I want to thank you forgiving me the opportunity to express myself and my aspirations.
