Technology has forever changed the world
we live in. We are online, in one way or another, all day long. Computers has
become reflections of our interests and identities. I am very excited at the
prospect of devoting my career to a fast advancing field and learn innumerable
things. Initially, I preferred laptops for general purpose only such as for
making presentation, storing text and gaming but later I realized its
importance with different aspects as well.
As a high school student, I excelled in
courses related to physics, maths and chemistry. It was grateful to have
teachers who saw my interests in these subjects and encouraged me to continue
broadening my scientific understanding and developing my analytical skills.
Their guidance and support helped me to gain an in-depth knowledge and my
reasoning capabilities increased successively regarding the subjects. I
achieved the class of distinction (76%) and first class (68%) in 10th
and 12th standard respectively in my school.
My efforts to select the appropriate
course and college began from here itself. My curiosity pertaining to the
understanding of working with different domains of computer technology
increased significantly. My desire to gain more knowledge in this domain was
one of the main factors for which I took Computer Engineering. Because of my
academic performance, I was able to attain admission in Venus International
College of Technology.
In my undergraduate study at Venus
International College of Technology, at an early stage, I came across basic
programming languages such as C, C++ and Java and learned the programming
skills. My undergraduate education has definitely gratified a significant amount
of my passion towards Software Engineering, Networking and Artificial
Intelligence. My keen interest in Web Technology has also moulded the skills
pertaining to social media sites. However, along with the studies, I
endeavoured to update my knowledge with the latest trends regarding the
Networking and Software’s; hence, I attended various seminars like Hackathon,
Cyber Security, and languages like Python, Pearl, and PHP in the institute as
well as in Tech Fest of the college and underwent crucial training.
During the third year of my college, I modelled
a “railway management system” based on java language. During the last year of
my college, I decided to start a project of medical website based on PHP and
python language. A project titled “MEDICOS” was carried out in 7th
and 8th semester. In 7th semester, initially, we
underwent the complete analysis and requirements for the project to provide the
solution regarding the difficulties faced by the doctors and clinics. Consequently,
we built the user side and admin side panel during that span of time. In 8th
semester, the project focussed on the MYSQL database and the process of testing
took place. We repeated the testing process thrice to check the response and
the quality remains maintained. After completing this project, I have
understood the significance of patience and time management because at times
results may not be as per your expectations.
I currently ranked seventh in the Computer
Department of my college. I have tried to excel in every activity, which I have
undertaken until now. My academic pursuits has not
terminated me from participating in various co-curricular activities such as
organizing seminars and serving as a representative of the class. These
activities has led me to the development of a multifaceted personality and equipped
with strong interpersonal skills.
The MS program in
Computer Science offered by the University (of Ottawa) is ideal and appropriate
for me, the program suits my interest regarding the course and it will
undoubtedly provide me with the right knowledge, skills, and experience to
pursue that course and exploit the opportunities fully. I am confident my
exposure to such initiatives would quite augment my knowledge base and add
tremendous value in enabling me to realize my professional goals. By studying
at your university, I expect to have the expertise, perspective necessary to
lead our industry and provide a part to contribute to the society and take it
to the doorstep of new era.
