I have always believed that studying with interest is of utmost importance because “Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in. “ I am convinced that studies in US encourages creative and innovative thinking thus stimulating one’s intellect, talents and skills unlike in any other part of the world. With two years of experience in IT , a willingness to learn more about Information Processing and use my innovation in the world of **** I would like to pursue my Master Degree in Management Information System from a reputed institution in the US and follow this up with a PhD.
This should pave the way for what I eventually aspire – a career in research and teaching in a field that I am overly passionate about. As a child I was always fascinated by wonders a computer could do; may it be simple calculations, storing of data in a systematic way or gaming technology. With the advent and profligate use of Internet, my interest in (IT) increased which eventually led me in taking engineering in the field of IT.
My sound interest and excellence in subjects like Database Management, Dataware housing, Data Mining, Information security and Management Information System has imbibed in me, an interest to pursue further education in this field. This also gave me an opportunity to show my innovation in my fourth Year project which was “Online Tracking Using Multi-Modal Feature”. The main objective of this project was to develop face recognition and verification software using image processing.
It is rightly said “All studies and no play makes Jack a dull boy” and so besides my regular academics in college, I have also been an active member of technical bodies that gave me an opportunity to organize and be a part of various seminars and tech fests. I have been a member of ISTE (Indian Society for Technical Education) as well as head of events for IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). Such involvement has had a positive impact on promoting my creativity in technological world and has also sharpen my organizational and leadership skills.
Every sphere of our lives is influenced by IT. After completing my Bachelors studies in IT, I got a chance to explore the Information Management in Telecom Domain. Being a part of British Telecom project; my main assignment was to develop FLOW Stream Tool that would help in achieving 100% automation in service fulfilment of broadband and VoIP service provisioning by converting the raw data obtained as input from customer (Internet Service Providers) into information in the form of XML’s and storing these XML’s in large databases.
Working on this core product has given me a good knowledge and experience in technologies like Java, PL-SQL and XML. Also direct communication with Clients has had a salutary effect in enhancing my Communication skills, Managing Client Requirements and understanding the overall Business workflow. My keen interest in project, diligent hard work and effective problem solving techniques led me to receive many accolades from my Company and have also bestowed with Special Customer Appreciation Awards.
Being part of a project rife with information processing has inspired me to delve deeper into the subject of Information Management. The hours of hard work that I have put into my education seems far too less when I get the glimpse of vastness of the knowledge in IT field and I am willing to extend my boundaries and grow my expertise in the subject. Although I believe that there is no substitute for hard work and strong working knowledge; Training in a reputed university like yours will give a big boost to my aspirations and academic pursuits.
Having consulted my professors, seniors and colleagues, I am applying for admission to your university because of the numerous research options available here. I am confident that your university would give me an opportunity to prove my excellence in the subject and make my research-work more meaningful. The other important reason for me to apply here is the diversity of students with respect to culture, nationality and religion. I am sure that these varied influences would help me introduce myself to the world I have never been exposed to.
Having an excellent academic record, a strong grasp of the fundamentals of Information Technology, a zest for challenges and an enthusiastic desire to learn as much possible, I am confident of making a humble contribution in my own way to your esteemed university. “Do not get obsolete like an old technology, keep innovating yourself. ” Finally I take this opportunity to thank you for enabling me to express myself and I look forward for my admission into the Masters in Management Information Systems(MS in MIS) program of your esteemed university.
