Hi essayforum,
Firstly i would like to thank all the moderators and contributors of this helpful essayforum.This is my first draft of SOP.So please review and give your opinions.All comments and suggestions are welcomed.Thanks in advance.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Technology draws my attention since i was a child.When i pass the examination for the university, i chose a department which i can learn more about technology,Electronics engineering.When i was sophomore at university,i had an operation from my eye.The medical devices which doctors used in my operation impressed me very much.Subsequently at 3rd grade, i take an introduction to biomedical engineering course and after i bought "An introduction to Biomedical Engineering " book to get informed about biomedical engineering and its applications in daily life.This field is a great opportunity for me get a masters degree through implementing my knowledge which i learnt in my bachelors degree.Besides,its purpose, to serve human health, is desirable for me to specialize in this area.

I study my bachelors degree of electronics engineering in a prestigious university ,(college name).Although i took many courses, some courses attract me more.For example,Signals and Systems,Microprocessors,Analog Electronics,Linear Electronics,Systems Engineering and An Introduction to Biomedical Engineering.In addition to these courses i made practical jobs.I did an internship in [Company name].During my intership i worked in the Systems Engineering Department and i tried to make F-16 radar display unit using MATLAB.While doing my internship, i learnt MATLAB programming and Matlab GUI.Moreover, i worked for Children University which is a branch of (collage name) University.I tought basic electronic lessons to children.In addition according to their solutions to problems that they faced in their daily life, i designed circuits to solve these problems.Throughout this work, i made simulations on Proteus-Isıs and made PCB designs on Proteus-Ares. Also i programmed PIC's using the CCS C software.Besides this i had a great experience about teaching lessons to children.In addition to these experiences i worked for technical student clubs.I worked for solar car team for one year.Additively in the IEEE student group i made line following robots and entered robots festival which was made by prestigious college (college name).As a consequence of these experiences i implemented my theoritical knowledge to practical, strengthen my problem solving ability and those gave me the engineering approach to the problems.

Furthermore,as its my last year in bachelors degree, our college give us a thesis project.In this project i work with two of my friends.My projects advisors are Prof.Dr.xxx,who is chair of the (institution name), and Assoc.Prof.Dr.xxx who is Chair of Electronics Engineering Department of (college name).The content of this project is about respiratory signals monitoring which are gathered from oral,nasal and abdominal regions.To implement this project ,we are using thermocouples to get signals from oral and nasal regions and for abdominal region we use strain gauge.In addition to this we are using microprocessors for digitalizing signals and usb interface to transfer the data,on the other hand in PC we are designing a graphical user interface to present information about signals and other datas to help doctors diagnose respiratory system disorders.

Drexel's excellence in the biomedical engineering field,espicially biomedical systems and imaging gives me great enthusiasm for studying its graduate program.Also Drexel's interdisciplinary working with other departments and collaborative professionals is a great chance for me to enlarge my vision in the biomedical engineering field.I believe that Drexel's well equiped research labs ,Co-op programs and diverse courses will help me pursue a career in this field.I am interested in the fNIR researches at (name of the lab) which are pursued by Dr.xxx and Dr.yyy.

I believe , i have the eligibility to be a part of Drexel's master student.My determination,energy and high team work rate will make great contribution to projects.After masters degree i hope to get my Phd at Drexel and continue my career in the biomedical engineering field.
