The Statement of Purpose

The urge to achieve and prove myself among the greats in the history of science has been
my ambition from the days I was first introduced to the captivating concepts of science
and engineering. The mental ability to approach a problem with the right blend of logic
and reasoning has supported me in inching towards my goal. As a first step out of school
I decided to take up engineering, the only field that requires comprehensive
understanding of the sciences and the flair to exploit the fascinating field of Mathematics.

Technology was changing and I had to be in constant touch with it. Digitized computing
was the field I was engrossed into once I understood the Engineering approach to
Electromagnetic Theory and the Signal Processing tools. Courses in the undergraduate
program like Numerical methods, Operation Research, Signals and Systems, Digital
Signal Processing and Electromagnetic theory for communication, laid the foundation for
my project. The reinforced enthusiasm has taken me into a project on Data
Communication using the techniques of Signal Processing.

The principles that I learnt in the various undergraduate courses have kindled me to
produce an enhanced version of the existing ones and to my misfortune I find that such an
extension has already been implemented. This instigates me to learn more in an
exhaustive and systematic manner of the existing technology and its limitations. A
Master’s Degree with the Thesis Option leading to a PhD would definitely be the next
opportunity knocking my doors.

My ability to comprehend technology without external guidance has often projected me
as a potential asset to my college. My participation in the national level seminars and
conferences has been commended by the faculty members. It is with the all their best
wishes that I am encouraged to pursue higher education. The engineering courses that I
underwent have imbibed my aptitude to make things work and has appended to my
attentive and observant elegance. As an engineer, I learnt the techniques of performing
tasks in the most simple, uncomplicated and economical way. The deft character that I
demonstrated in experimenting in the laboratory at the undergraduate level has been
rewarded and has increased my predilection to my research objective.

Academics on one side, I have been shouldering responsibility right from the age of 14 as
the unopposed leader of the class and in college as the Joint Secretary of the Symposium
Committee and the active member of the Students Association. The college and the
department of Electronics and Communication entrusted me with the job of editing the
yearly magazine in the second year of study and my efficacy and creativity impressed one
and all in the department to delegate me with the job for the next two years. My technical
contributions apart from the job of anchoring have received worthy commendations as
well. The Master’s degree offered by the university aims to promote most of my interests
and more importantly is a giant leap towards my research objectives.

The various algorithms and schemes encouraged me to think a few steps ahead. After having gone through the web pages of the university and its Electrical Engineering department I have decided that university study is my next step towards my decade old desire. I would like to take up the Engineering Electro sciences as my major with the signal processing concepts supporting it.The project that I was involved induced me to approach various aspects of signal processing and I learnt that signal processing involved a plethora of sciences and mathematics and every principle and tool that I came across fueled my journey towards the ambition. My undergraduate performance in that course is exemplary and stands foremost in the universities’ records. . The field of Electromagnetism that involves the processing of signals was one abstract subject to which I was enslaved. I am sure that all these factors will facilitate the realization of my research aspirations to blossom in flying colors. As my quest to learn more and innovate is still unabated. The erudite faculty that the institution boasts of and the much-sought after infrastructure along with the academic ambience in the research groups such as the WCRG have allured me to pursue higher education in an extremely technology savvy and developed country like the United States.
