--Why do you want to study your chosen major at Georgia Tech, and what opportunities at Georgia Tech will prepare you in that field after graduation? (300 max)
Why my major and why Georgia Tech
Juno I, Atlas-Agena, Mercury-Redstone. These are some of the rockets displayed at the rocket garden at the Kennedy Space Center. As I took in the immensity of each structure, another feeling washed over me: desire. A desire to one day design something as marvellous, iconic and complex as these rockets, maybe even fly in one. With the growing movement to begin to colonize the Moon and even send manned missions to Mars, my interest in rocket science has piqued, wanting to be a part of this challenge. The aerospace program is a highly regarded program and can open the door to reach my goals. The opportunities are vast and can help me learn new skills, improve upon current one, and also keep me active socially. Undergraduate entrepreneurship, research, and internship opportunities will help me grasp new skills early on and apply them to my graduate studies and later on. The diverse clubs will also cultivate my interest in aerospace and bring it to a new level. With clubs such as the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and the Yellow Jacket Flying and Space programs, I can interact with others who have similar interests and discuss their experiences, which will improve me not only academically, but personally. I also believe Georgia Tech has opportunities to help foster social interaction and relaxation, rather than an acute focus on only academics. Clubs like India club and GT Qurbani dance team can help me experience more of my culture and harbor my knowledge of my home country. Other clubs such as Esports at Georgia Tech and Human vs. Zombies will encourage me to find time away from studies to hang out with friends with similar interests and serve new interests I acquire.
