Statement of Purpose for MS in Mechanical Engineering

Applicant name: *******

Under graduation Major: Mechanical engineering
E-mail: *******


The ensuring statement of purpose is meant to put forth my aspiration to pursue my career through
Masters in Mechanical Engineering at your esteemed university, as well as description of my plans
subsequent to my graduation. In this ever changing world of Engineering and Technology, passing day
makes them obsolete, I want to attain the highest level of education and transcend new scope for
research in Mechanical Engineering. This has always fascinated me and I am keen to continue my
academic pursuit in this field.

I have always cherished a dream to become an Engineer, a dream that was innate and developed slowly
over the years. Right from my school days I found myself fascinated by the intricacies of mathematics
and physics, which spurn the web their web of aura around me, a web that I sought to unravel in
countless problem solving sessions I have always felt a strong need for achievement, which has been the
motivating force behind whatever I have achieved in my academic career. Mechanical department staff in
my college gave the strong support to my feeling saying that “We being the Mechanical Engineering
students can make the world and we can move the world”.

I finished my schooling with 83% in 10th class and with 93.2% in 12th class. I was placed among the top
5% of 110,000 odd students in a state level entrance examination for undergraduate study through
which I could cherish my dream of getting into the stream of Mechanical Engineering in a reputed
institution .I am proud to say that our college is one of the best college in the state that every
undergraduate student has a dream to enroll into it. The college has accredited “A” grade by “NBA” and
“AICTE”. In such a good college I got 87% in aggregate and stood “UNIVERSITY FIRST”in in
mechanical engineering.

In this world where engineers are proliferating at an extremely high place, I felt that I had to achieve
something different to stand in a good position in the competitive world pursuing this strongly in built
motive, I have authored some technical papers, which have received due appreciation on which I wrote
about the present trends and performance improvement of a diesel engine with cotton seed oil and
advances in advanced chemical engineering in alternate fuels and robot hexapod matrix related approach
for calculation of arm length of robot. During my study at baccalaureate level I have nurtured a growing
interest in CAE and Robotics due to its immense real life applications and wide scope of research. It is my
interest to excel in the fields of CAE, Robotics and to position of immense. I want to expose myself to the
outer limits of specialized knowledge of these fields. A through knowledge of computers is imperative for
any engineer to be successful. I have taken computer and mechanical courses in C-Language, C++ ,
JAVA and I am well acquainted with mechanical software’s namely I-DEAS, AUTOCAD, UNIGRAPHICS. I
have worked various flat forms like WINDOWS, DOS and UNIX.

The American universities have always pioneered the research in my fields of interest. Being a
prospective student for new challenging ideas, I believe that an opportunity for higher education in U.S.A.
would be a unique fortuity to test and prove my ability and also to enrich and broaden my keen with
transition to a new setting. Finally, I would like to add here that my parents have always been a source
of inspiration to me. They have set me personal examples and ideals for me follow. As a result of this, I
believe that over the years, I have evolved into a person who can fit easily into a team and who
appreciates the value of discussion and exchanges of ideas. I am largely self-regulated and am capable of
independent work, given an opportunity.
I would like to conclude with the reasons for my choosing to apply to your esteemed university for
my MS in Mechanical Engineering. I perceive that graduate study nurtures the seeds of learning
sown during the course of undergraduate study. After having gone through the details of the research
facilities available at your university, I feel that they are very much catering to the fields of interest and it
is the right place to embark upon my academic career.

An assistantship besides providing financial support as seen fit by the university official would gain me
valuable research experience and will place me in a good stead leader in my career .I wish to aver that I
will make maximum use of all the opportunities bestowed upon me and shall pursue my goals with whole
hearted dedication and can live to the high standards set by the university. I sincerely hope that my
application for admission is favorably received
