Statement of Purpose
"The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows."
Sydney J. Harris ---- American Teacher, Lecturer and journalist.
What I understand from this quote, not the actual meaning is that when you look into a mirror it only shows your own perception of view for things, however if you make the mirror into a window; you can see the whole world with different kind of viewpoints. This quote drives me towards acquiring the necessary educational and technical qualifications at Global Educational level.
I am an Undergraduate student having done Electronics Engineering from K.J.Somaiya Polytechnic Mumbai, affiliated to YCMOU (Yashvantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University Nasik). During the course of my undergraduate study, I have gained much knowledge, but I have also realized that I need to learn more to advance frontiers in my field of interest. In the following lines I attempt to give a brief portrayal of my academic background, my research interests, my future aspirations, and my action plan for making a meaningful contribution to the field of Tele-Communication Engineering.
I have come from the middle class family, my father run a mechanical workshop where they develop machine goods, I often visit there & came to know about various machines. Then I had developed fascination for Computers and Electronic Devices particularly right from my school days. I have been interested in Mathematics and Science for a very long time, which helped me to participate in many Science Exhibitions. My pursuit for acquiring knowledge makes me choose Computer Technology at Diploma level, theoretical subjects like digital Electronics, Microprocessor, Computer Networking & Communication and also Programming in 'C' Language complemented with rigorous practical work. As I'm progressing, my curiosity in electronics & communication technologies increases. The successful completion of this course gives me clear choice of Electronics Engineering at the undergraduate level. I had the good fortune of having good faculty and a well-compiled syllabus, which placed equal emphasis on theoretical fundamentals as well as practical applications. During my engineering course I was introduced to the concepts of Communication, Power Electronics, Instrumentation, Mobile & Personal Communication and Networking. I have also learned computational skills in Programming Languages like SQL, VB (object oriented programming), ASP (Web Programming) & XML. In my engineering education I have completed various projects like Big led display clock, Digital multi-mode timer & Patient information system application with vb.net & sql programming.
Due to some distractions that took place when I was younger, my academic performance has not accurately demonstrated my capabilities. But now I have passed that phase of my career and doing well. I have become much stronger and learned to work even harder. The measure of my potential is not limited to distinctions and percentages; it's something above all these. It is the thirst for knowledge and consistent learning. Also learn to accept both criticism and praise with a positive frame of mind. The measures are not just distinctions and percentages; it's something above all of these, it's the thirst for knowledge and consistent learning. During my undergraduate studies, I have attended various seminars and conferences on Electronics & mobile telecommunication. In my engineering study I have participated in various group discussions. These activities have given me the confidence to actively participate in the process of gaining and sharing knowledge. I am confident that the knowledge which I have gained in my undergraduate level will be the base for my future career. My other interests include Searching over internet to see what's latest in technology despite of any field, music, sports and photography.
An Undergraduate study has taught me that Engineering is as an art of science. But to keep pace with fast growing technology and by the time my interest in Communication had matured me into an active enthusiasm to learn more and do more in the Telecommunication field. Telecommunication industry is booming with lots of new technological revolution, I want to join the advancement to contribute my share. A master's degree course involves significant amount of research work and also a more challenging practical project work. As a part of today's generation I do not want to simply go through life but to improve my skills & knowledge. I have learned the various Mobile and Satellite Communication modes, streams and modulation techniques in my undergraduate studies. Includes Concept for personal communication with mobility management (include BTS, MSC, etc), wireless & satellite communication with various Coding-Decoding type & techniques. By doing Masters Course in Telecommunications, I am not only going to earn more knowledge but also move in forward to achieve my professional goal.
The main thing I had selected UK for my Graduation, cause qualifications from United Kingdom for years been recognized and respected throughout the world. It has a stable economy and technologically advanced in many fields. Not only the course best suited for my goals & aspiration, but also after the completion of studies, I find myself in a better position to get a better job back in India. UK Education provides a creative and challenging environment to develop one's ability to improve & innovation.
When I read about the Master's course in Telecommunication and I said to myself, that is what I am looking for. I found that my aspirations match with the interests and research work undertaken here. I am aware of the university expects high standards from its students and I am confident & ready to work harder to live up to the standards expected. Course contents & highly professional faculty of university will also help me to expand my capabilities. This is going to benefit me when I get back to India after my graduation; country still going through advancement in telecommunication is going to play major part in development. I would be very grateful to you if I granted an opportunity to pursue my graduate studies in your esteemed university.
although i have not completed my sop, i want you guys to asses it..
also what to write more & how can i explain my bad academics?
"Things" is always a weak word:
During the course of my undergraduate study, I have gained much knowledge, but I have also realized that I need to learn more to advance frontiers in my field of interest.
That's my suggestion. (above)
In the following lines I attempt to give a brief portrayal of my academic background, my research interests, my future aspirations, and my action plan for making a meaningful contribution to the field of Electronic Engineering.
Due to some
reasons distractions that took place when I was younger, my academic performance has not accurately demonstrated my capabilities. Now I have spent some time as a professional working n my chosen field, and I continue to be a top performer among my colleagu es. I have become much stronger and learned to w ork even harder. The measure of my potential is not limited to distinctions and percentages; it's something above all these. I t is the thirst for knowledge and consistent learning.
Would you want to add about your readiness to study and learn from your mistakes.You can make it as the part that helped on upgrading your academic performance.
What I can say is,You know what you are doing and you are well determined in persuit of more knowledge and reach your desired goal.Great,keep on searching for more feedbacks.
I think the first sentence is more complicated than necessary...
I think you should do a good ob of capturing the intended meaning of the quote -- perhaps in a single sentence, and then follow it up with your unique insight:
Another insight I gained from this quote
not the actual meaning is that when you look into a mirror it only shows your own perception of view for things, but that if you make the mirror into a window (no need for a semi-colon here) you can see the whole world with different kind of viewpoints.
This quote drives me towards acquiring the necessary educational and technical qualifications at Global Educational level.--- You say this, and in order to substantiate it you should use the word "viewpoints" again in the last sentence of the first paragraph.
You should use "and" instead of &
I think you should refer again to "viewpoints" and the quote in the last paragraph of the essay. I think you should also tell how this quote, and the act of taking many viewpoints, is somehow significant to a specific, detailed plan that you have for the next few years. Thus, I think this theme should be maintained in almost every paragraph. The trick is to write about the way that the truth of this quotation applies to each aspect of your education and plan for the future. That will make the essay meanngful and memorable. You already write very well!
Thanks for detail analyzing, thanks a ton man.
i am just little confuse by following comment.
could you just explain for me please. I'm great-full to you...
I think you should refer again to "viewpoints" and the quote in the last paragraph of the essay. I think you should also tell how this quote, and the act of taking many viewpoints, is somehow significant to a specific, detailed plan that you have for the next few years.
great-full grateful to you...
You are welcome.
Your question: What I am trying to do is carve out a theme for your essay. At the start, you mention viewpoints: you can see the whole world with different kinds of viewpoints.
So, I think you should mention viewpoints in the last sentence of the first paragraph and then again in the last paragraph.
By writing about that word at the beginning and end, and perhaps referring to it in the middle, you can make it a memorable theme that the reader enjoys. This is how to create an essay that is about YOU, but it is ALSO about something else: "viewpoints" (i.e. perspective)
So, do you know what I mean about using a word to make a theme? You do not have to choose viewpoints as your theme, but I think it would be cool.
