These are the
words which inspire me to excel in whatever the tasks I take up and helped me polish
my skills. These also facilitated me to fulfill my desire of efficiently
applying my technical abilities to the problems confronted in my academic
career. My interest towards physical environment started in my 6th
grade when my uncle’s car needed to get repaired. It was a Hindustan Motors
Ambassador, a real classic of all time. He used to get it repaired by himself.
I volunteered to help him in fixing the car. I was fascinated when I inspected
what is under the hood, the way the engine works, the lubricants and the
cooling fluids was really mesmerizing. The way that the components worked in
tandem to make the vehicle move was really intriguing at that time. And my
eagerness didn’t stop there, whenever I see a vehicle I use to open up the hood
so that I can learn anything new. This passion and enthusiasm kept me going
through the years of my education.

Through years of
my schooling I’ve created an interest in Mathematics and Sciences which
encouraged me to keep the eagerness to learn more still living. This assisted
me to perform well in the engineering entrance exam and I got into Gayatri
Vidya Parishad College of Engineering (A) (Affiliated to Jawaharlal Nehru
Technological University Kakinada). I’ve made the best choice in selecting this
institution, it reflects my skills which guided me through the path I needed. I
wish to create a milestone in my chosen field of study as a pioneer of new
ideas and concepts. So, I selected Mechanical Engineering. As a student, I took
this field of study to improve my knowledge and skills in my areas of interest.
Throughout this engineering course I came tackled many analytically and
logically challenging concepts. I believe it will serve to drive me in a path
to my goal of a career as a research professional at an academic and
research-oriented organization.

In our country
there is a popular annual competition called SAE BAJA. To this event students
have to bring a fabricated automobile which have to be approved their rulebook.
Group of students in our college collectively participated in this event. I
played a role of design and fabricate in which I have to design all the
elements with precision as derived by the calculations. After months of work we
finally been able to submit and explain the analysis through a presentation to
the judging committee. Though we couldn’t make it through the competition, it
has been a great experience to all of us. This has given us a broad
understanding of how the commercial world works through the expos conducted at
the event.

During my senior
year, I got an opportunity as an intern at “Defence Research and Development
Organisation” (DRDO), Bengaluru. This was my first exposure to the industrial
and defence environment. It was an incredible experience. It was here, that I
learnt to put out what I have learnt in the past 3 years to use. I was assigned
as a temporary assistant in the designing department. During this time, I had a
very good opportunity to interact with experienced people involved in
manufacturing and testing activities. From whom, I learnt the importance of
planning and implementation of engineering fundamentals. On site, I witnessed
the functioning of each department involved in the quality check so as to
ensure that there are no discrepancies in the final product.

For the final year
of engineering everyone has to take a project. So, I convinced my team mates to
do a project different from others. When others started projects on
manufacturing, we chose a project on aerodynamics. This involves some serious
computations for the analysis. Once a design is completed it took hours of time
for every simulation to run. Our project advisor was very impressed by our
results. We were praised by many faculty members.

Despite the
fluidity, fast growing technology and collaborating with new departments and in
my field, I’ve always tried in tandem with these by going through reputed
journals. I have always been updating and adapting to new technologies, hence I’ve
undergone numerous courses that aid my skills. Most of the application courses that
I’ve taken are self-taught. I have been certified by SolidWorks as a Certified
SolidWorks Associate (CSWA). I even try to teach the shortcuts that I implement
in making my work easier to others. This desire to edify others on what I
learnt motivated me in conducting workshops and events to demonstrate the skill
on what they learnt. I’m always trying to learn new concepts and ways to
implement my knowledge, so I’ve learning programming languages that benefits
me.

I learnt the most vital
lesson of my life that the fundamental basis of success is time-management. My
participation in extracurricular activities inspired me to be on the face of
organization committee. I was an organizer of all the technical as well as cultural
bodies of our college in several events. I’ve organized workshops and a
National Level Technical Symposium called VIVAAN in our college. Being in such
responsible post, I learnt to build up assets and reduce liabilities. I also
acquired the skills of working in a group, interacting with my fellow peers and
faculty. Moreover, I’ve participated in many social activities which concern
helping people and cleaning environment. All these experiences have rewarded me
with remarkable leadership qualities, excellent organizing skills, team-working
abilities and good communication skills. Being fit and active helps the mind to
relieve the stress. So, to keep up with my motor skills I always try to play
some sport like basketball and badminton. As a result of this I’ve participated
in many inter-department competitions.

My endeavor is to
become a research scholar at an institution, which aids research work. I intend
to pursue a graduate program at your Institution which will be another step to
reach that goal and to realize my efforts. I have visited the website of your
University and took note of the research and development activities that are
being carried out in the field of my interest. I know that it is impossible to
have a comprehensive understanding of many subjects in a lifetime. So, I want
to master my skill and have an extensive knowledge of the specialized topics,
which fascinated me in my Engineering course. I believe that your graduate
program would help me to accomplish this goal.

My journey ahead
will be a challenging one and may be arduous at times, I am aware of the effort
and perseverance necessary for the program and I am sure that I’ve acquired the
requisite inspiration, logical ability and determination that justify the
demanding graduate program at your Institution. By the end of the day I’ll try
my best to be an asset to the institution, live up to your standards and not
fall short in my self-confidence.

My knowledge
eagerly awaits to be part of your institution. Thank you for your time and
consideration.
