Right from my school days I have always questioned and challenged text book concepts to explore and to understand the underlying fundamental ideas. I have held a certain fascination towards the field of Engineering and the years of study in school and college have helped in amassing the knowledge I possess of this field. The purpose of pursuing a Master’s degree is to deepen my knowledge, channelize my thought process and to guide myself along the right path that would lead me to my goal, to be forefront in the field of Electrical engineering.

During my childhood days, I had a curiosity to know how all the electrical and electronic appliances around us work. Each and every new appliance that came on the market not only shattered my preconceptions about how much further can technology really go in terms of innovation, but it also stretched the limits of my imagination. This curiosity in me made to choose Electronics and Instrumentation engineering as my major in under graduation. During that period, I learned the basics of Electrical and Electronics and many of my child hood questions were being answered. I was astonished to know that even the simplest appliances that we use every day contained complex electrical architecture.

With my goals set on a Master’s degree, I embarked upon an ambitious senior project in college, one that would make use of visible light communication protocol based on IEEE.802.15.7 and AVR Microcontrollers. This project involved PAN ID matching method to control the speed of automobiles to a limited range. The project was titled as Advanced Driver Assistance system. It was rated one of the best projects in my college during that academic year and earned S grade, which is the top most grade. To have been in a successful project with my effort not only gave me satisfaction, but it also kindled in me a growing desire to keep achieving more and more which is my primary motive for continuing my studies. I also presented a paper at a national level technical symposium on Wireless transmission of electricity.

In my opinion one can never truly learn to visualize a solution to a problem from an engineer’s perspective until he has had first-hand experience. Industrial visits and in plant trainings gave me that and much more. I had a golden opportunity to undergo training at Subashri bio energies (P) Ltd. This firm makes use of organic poultry waste to produce electricity and this idea fascinated me. Here I was introduced to the method of power production by using organic wastes at a very little costs, I also learnt various techniques on power generation and distribution. It was at this place, where I got to understand the importance of eco-friendly power production and power production from renewable energy sources. Besides the training I have had the opportunity to visit many power producing industries such as Ennore Thermal Power Station and Neyveli lignite Power Corporation. The visits and in plant training greatly complemented the theoretical classes I had taken in college and it gave me a wider picture of power systems. This kept me eagerly anticipating the day I could contribute to such a fascinating field. Given an opportunity to pursue my Master’s degree at University of Alberta, I believe I will get one step closer to my goal.

The major challenge that we face today in the 21st century is providing energy to the increasing population and catering the energy needs of modern industries. In India, we mostly rely on conventional methods of power 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 strongly believe that by incorporating eco-friendly techniques and by generating power from renewable energy sources, we can cater the needs of the growing population and the current Industrial revolution without harming our environment. This belief in me and my strong emphasis on production of electricity from renewable sources made me to take the decision of doing a Master’s program in Electrical engineering with specializing in power systems. So that after my graduation I will work in a field that caters the needs of the society, and thereby fulfill my career ambitions.

Apart from academics, I also actively engage myself in extracurricular activities. I was an active member of the NSS (National service scheme) and participated in many cleanliness awareness programs. I successfully organized a quiz competition on latest advancements in the field of electrical and electronics during my college symposium. After my graduation, I started working as a teacher in an international school. Here I handled both physics and mathematics for grade eleven students.

The reason I choose to study Master of engineering in Electrical and computer science specializing in energy system at the University of Alberta is that your university will provide me the platform where I can learn to grow in the field of Electrical engineering and provide me the caliber to match international parameters. You have one of the best laboratory facilities such as the unique Nano & Micro fabrication facility and RTX (Real Time Experimental laboratory, the latest equipment’s and a well-structured curriculum. Being under the guidance of your experienced faculty will help me to strengthen my knowledge and will help me achieve academic excellence. Your training will help me develop my skills to manage the core aspects of electrical engineering and thereby create a pathway for me to become an efficient professional. Moreover, University of Alberta is one of the top ranked universities in the world and has kept its standards high right from the time when it was started in 1908.

I strongly believe that it is an Engineers responsibility to make life better for everyone living on this planet. My experience at the University of Alberta will not only contribute to my education, but also shape my career that I have dreamt of. I strongly believe that my eminent academic records and my commitment towards everything I pursue qualify me for admission in your university. I look forward to the day when I can proudly state that I am a graduate student in my dream university. At this moment I want to thank you for giving me an opportunity to express myself and my aspirations.
