please help me on my statement of purpose
Goal of study & Study Plan
o Goal of study, title or subject of research, and detailed study plan
The reason why I want to apply for masters degree is during my study and carrier I came to know there is a lot to explore about computers. Specially when I taught computer architecture and organization course the issues related to making fast computers caught my attention. In the 1990's the design goal was to drive the clock rate up by adding more transistors to a smaller chip. But this increased the power dissipation of the CPU chip and makes it hard to cool the chip. Then computer architects came up with the idea of multi-core processors to improve overall processing performance by having multiple CPUs on a chip which can perform different task simultaneously. But in order to fully utilize this improvement applications should be written in a parallel manner. Unfortunately Developing a parallel code is very hard because we need to care about how this parallel codes synchronize if they access shared data and we have make sure that a deadlocks situation never happen and its easy to make mistakes. So most programmers write sequential code.
The topic of my research will be on automatic code parallelization which take a sequential code and parallelize it to exploit the ability of multi-core processors. With automatic parallelizers we can decrease mistakes that are made by programmers and the programmer needs to focus on the logic of his program not on how to parallelize it.
My stay in Korea will be three years. On the first year I will study Korean language , and I believe the best way to learn a language is to practice so I will go out talk to people in Korean, read news papers, books written in Korean and watch Korean movies as much as I can. I will spend my free time by going out and exploring the town. I will try to visit the historical places and try to know every neighborhood. I will also visit other towns in my semester and summer break.
On the second year I will spend most my time studying core graduate courses. I will attend every class, participate and ask questions if there something I don't understand. After class I will do my home works and spent most of my time in lab to practice what I have learned in class. I will also read papers, attend and do some preliminary researches that will give me a good understanding and experience on my final year research topic.
On the third year I will prepare my graduate research proposal under my advisor's instruction. Then I will carry out my research plan, conduct experiments and analyze the results according to my proposal. I will meet my advisor to show him my progress, discuss the difficulties I have and ask for his advise on how to proceed. And I will prepare my paper carefully and prepare my self for my degree defense.
