My decision to pursue graduate study in the United States
is underscored by my desire to be a part of the graduate program
at your institution. Purdue University offers the flexibility
needed for such a vast and rapidly changing field. The research
facilities and the faculty at the university are par excellent.
is an industry that has changed our lives. In a very short
period it has changed the way we have looked at things since
centuries. It is one industry that is going to shape our future
for centuries to come. Hence my desire to do masters in electrical
engineering with communications as my major.
in electronics blossomed during my high school years. It was
the time when technology had begun to make an impact on the
lives of people in India. Hence engineering with electronics
as my major was the first choice for my undergraduate studies.
Right since the beginning of my undergraduate study electronics
is a subject that has fascinated me with its power of applications.
The subjects that I have studied include Linear Electronics,
Digital Electronics. These laid the foundation for my courses
in Electronic Communication & Communication Systems at a later
stage. My undergraduate studies already focus on the communications
aspect of electronics. A masters degree in electrical engineering
with communications as major field is the next logical step.
past four months I have been working as a project trainee
at the Indian Institute for Advanced Electronics. I am working
on the design and development of a "PC Controlled Digital
Serial Data Generator". This short stint has given me invaluable
practical experience. It has given me the confidence to pursue
a masters degree and also kindled a desire to do research.
the course of my work at IIAE, I have come across several
scientists. Most of them work in different areas of communications.
Interactions with them have made me realize the vastness and
the scope of communications. My discussions with them convinced
me that specializing in communications will suit me very well.
of research which interests me very much is spread spectrum
communication systems. Coding theory and combinations is another
research subject which arouses my curiosity. The subject Communication
Theory which I am studying at present introduces these topics
in theory. I am eager to find out more about the applications
of coding theory to spread spectrum communication systems.
I have been a student member of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical
and Electronics Engineers, Inc.) for the past three years.
Through its workshops/seminars and publications like the 'The
Spectrum' it has exposed me to a lot of emerging technologies
in the field of communications.
a strong belief in my family that the American education system
has the best to offer in the whole world. This belief arises
out of the experience that my parents had when they did their
Masters of Science in the University of Pennsylvania during
the years 1967-69. If I can get an opportunity to be a part
of that intellectually stimulating environment, I am sure
my talents will be put to optimal use.
is a developing country with an enormous potential in the
information technology business. To serve the needs of this
developing industry and more important its vast population,
communications is going to become of utmost importance. Thus
conditions here are very conducive to supplement my aspirations
when I return after completing my graduate studies.
