Endeavour Scholarship Essay- MS in Electrical Engineering
(maximum 300 words)
Explain how the Masters program will enhance collaborative partnerships with key institutions in India
Describe how these partnerships will strengthen the capacity of Australia's education, training and research sectors
Outline any anticipated educational, social, economic or other benefits.
Radio frequency and microwave antenna technology comes under the umbrella of Electromagnetism, a branch of Electronics. It's application covers a wide range of sectors namely-Telecommunications, Logistics, Mining, Radio astronomy, etc. For this reason, this technology is used extensively in satellite communications to receive and deliver data in the form of image, voice, encrypted messages, etc using electromagnetic spectrum.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is conducting research in microwave sensors antenna for it's various satellite launch projects. This year Australian Government has shown keen interest in space research with the announcement to provide seed funding of $26m towards Australian Space Agency and $15m in international space investment. This would be a great opportunity for institutions like IISC (Indian Institute of Science) and ISRO for developing strong relations with Australia in the field of space technology. In addition, AISF (Australia-India Strategic Research Fund) has provided support in the various research conducted in collaboration with India in the development of instruments to measure gravitational wave and radio telescope development. It is evident that in the near future Australia will emerge as one of the leader in space technology at par with countries like USA and China with this collaboration.
A Master's degree in Advanced Electrical Engineering from Monash University will provide me with in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge. It offers specialization in Radio frequency and microwave antenna technology which aligns with my area of interest. The projects conducted at the university under Prof XXX has been truly inspiring and it would be a privilege to gain enough practical experience in this field. This will also help me to interact and work with students from different countries and exchange ideas, information, thoughts, culture making me globally competent.
Aathira, your answer to the questions are off the mark. You failed to explain how the masters program will create a better collaborative partnership with Australia, improve Australian education, and there is no outline of anticipated benefits on your part as a student or within the realm of India space technology.
For the first question, you should be able to explain what your academic and professional intentions are for your masters course and how these will be applied to India in the realm of Electromagnetism or space technology. The second question, asks you to explain why you think that you have some sort of academic contribution to make to the development of this field of study while you study in Australia. The third, is self explanatory, benefits on all 3 sides; professionally for you, research and technological breakthroughs for the countries concerned.
Don't try to fix this essay, write a more responsive essay based on the explanation I have given you above. Those guide questions should get you back on track with the appropriate 3 paragraph response to the prompt questions.
@Holt - Here is my revised essay.
Aaritha, you misunderstood the following question in the essay:
-Describe how these partnerships will strengthen the capacity of Australia's education, training and research sectors
Your response is focused on the benefits of the study in terms of India based benefits. The question is asking you to explain what sort of benefit your participation in the program will bring to the program. It isn't about how the Australian government supports India. Rather, it is about how the partnership of these two organizations will develop the capacity of Australia to strengthen its education, training, and research sectors. That means, you need to think of the projects these two organizations already collaborate on, discuss that, then speak of how you see the project entering another level of education, training, and research requirements for the Australian counterpart.
