Statement of Intent for pursuing Masters

Rohit Kumar Page 1

My name is Rohit Kumar and I am writing to inform you of my interest in the Masters of Engineering
Program at

I am a graduate in B.Tech Mechanical Engineering (duration 04 years) from B.V.C Engineering College,
affiliated to Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad, India with an overall aggregate of
67.31%. During the course of my graduation I submitted paper on Nano-Technonolgy and stood first
place with a team of fellow student engineers.

Post graduation, I did one year Pre-sea marine training from Chidambaram Institute of Maritime
Technology, Chennai, India and later sailed as Engineer on board ships for two years. I presently hold
MEO Class IV (FG) Certificate of Competency issued by Directorate General of Shipping, India.

Post my shipping career, I chose to work with Oil & Gas firm and presently working as Project Manager
and heading the project for an upcoming LNG Import Terminal on the east coast of India. In addition this
I m also working as consultant for a marine firm and taking care of operations and business
development. During this span, I found my work experience and training to be extremely rewarding. My
learning curve has grown substantially. Broad spectrums of responsibilities related to project
management, operations and business development, manpower planning in the organizations at all
levels and recruitments have been assigned to me during my tenure. Working at this level in an
organizational has convinced me to pursue my research as a viable career.

For the betterment of my academic credentials and to gain an in-depth understanding of business
management, operations and development, I intend to pursue Masters by Research and further a PhD
degree. My proposed area of pursuing a career in management research is devoted to Oil and Gas /
Marine. I intend pursuing my Masters by Research and further a PhD as a means of achieving this end.

I believe that I have developed the qualities to be a good researcher. I am a creative person with a
contemplative thinking. Being able to identify patterns and relationships that are not obvious to others
is perhaps my greatest strength. This will prove very valuable because an integral part of being a
researcher is to perceive the balance between theory and practice, analytical rigor and intuition. My
communication skills are good and I like expressing ideas and concepts both orally and in writing which
is an ideal platform for dissemination of knowledge in my chosen field.

With these broad interests and specific goals, I am interested in Masters by Research program at your
university. I feel that these attributes, combined with profound interests would help me become a
successful researcher. I also believe that your university has a positive blend of resources and attitude
for shaping a student to the excellence. I would be highly indebted if I get an opportunity to explore my
research interests.

Look forward for a favorable decision regarding my admission to Masters by Research program at your
esteemed university.
