a women in the engineering field
Being born and raised in a third world country I do not have that much opportunity to spend most of my time with modern technological equipment. That makes me to be curious to know more about the technology while I grew up. In addition to this, becoming highly interested on the subjects of mathematics and physics leads me to the study of electrical and computer engineering with the stream of communication and electronics engineering. During the final year of my undergraduate study I had an opportunity to work my project on wireless communication area which had put a cornerstone for my current study, work and future plan. The insight I got at that time was further developed while I was selected to work as a lecturer being the top women scorer on my faculty. Teaching students of electrical and computer engineering course and studying my MSc in communication systems engineering enables me to develop my knowledge with the courses and research. As a lecturer I had an opportunity to attend seminars and conferences which made me realize as I had to study and explore the wireless communication technology further to be successful for my future plan.
The wireless communication systems program at Brunel university London I believe is perfect for me as it offers an in depth analytical study of current practice in wireless systems and provides the perfect mix of theory and practice in all aspects of modern communication systems applicable to today's ever-changing field of wireless communication. I was particularly drawn to this program because of its offering of wireless network technology, network design and management, advanced digital communications and radio and optical communication systems as a core modules given by its distinguished teaching staff of industry and research leading practitioners and faculty academics.
After the completion of the study I would like work on the project to solve the problem that the peoples around my country are facing. This project will work on using the wireless communication system to the medical application which I believe will be a good solution for a country with less professionals and material resources. The project will enable to the wireless follow up of patients far from a specialist doctor and fully equipped hospital by applying a real time wireless health monitoring system which will be successful with the knowledge I had until know and would develop it with the courses, projects and researches available at the university. As a women in engineering field I want to be part of the university's women in engineering program to be able to upgrade my knowledge and skill in order to upgrade myself and help others that are current and future women engineers. These all attributes of the university lead me to conclude Brunel University is the perfect place for me to pursue my postgraduate study in wireless communication system.
I would be more than happy to take any comments and suggestions.
