Dear Dr. :
Subject: Request for Research Project during May to July 2008
I am a student of 3rd year pursuing my Bachelor of Technology degree at
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee, India. I am majoring in
Electronics and Communication Engineering with Specialization in Wireless
Communication. Presently, my C.G.P.A. (Cumulative Grade Point Average) is
8.363 and S.G.P.A. (Semester Grade Point Average) is 8.963 on a scale of 10.
I have completed various projects on Digital Image Processing along with
Automation & Control robotics. Currently I am working on video processing. I am
highly proficient in working on MATLAB and want to contribute further to the field
of Computer Vision. I have also got a publication under Dr. Amlendu Patnaik on
“Patch Antenna Design using P.S.O.” and further I am writing a paper on “Real
Time Human Face Tracking System” which was a prize winning project I made.
As an undergraduate of the top technical institution of the country, I have truly
realized the importance of practical work experience in the development and
refinement of one’s logical and mental framework and this is reflected by my past
three years record in IIT Roorkee. Thus, I would like to pursue a Research
Project under your guidance or be a part of your ongoing research work during
the period of May-July 2008. My Academic Interests lie in the following areas:
Communication Systems, Computer Networks, Antenna Design, Signal
Processing, and Computer Vision.
My credentials include:
 A Grade Point Average of 8.363 on a scale of 10, with a Semester
Grade Point Average (S.G.P.A.) of 8.963, highest in my branch in the
last semester.
 My project on “Real Time Human Face Tracking System” was aired on a
NDTV, a national television channel on a show called “The Next Big
Thing”.
 Aptitude and keen interest in Wireless Communication. I have achieved
high grades in my batch in the courses of Digital Communication,
Signals & Systems, System Engineering, and Engineering
Electromagnetics.
 Currently studying Communication Systems and Analysis, Computer
Networks and Antennas & Wave propagation which have provided me
with many valuable insights about the algorithmic approach towards
solving problems of Wireless Communication.
 Completed a project on “Channel Assignment Problem in Mobile
Cellular Networks” which has given me project level experience of
implementing Communication Systems on MatLab.
