(2000 character Limit)
It all started since I was a child, the only thing that interested me more than my cricket kit was science books and magazines. I was fascinated by the technological advancements some of the greatest minds have made in the field of engineering. I didn't quite understand the actual depth of mechanical engineering until later in the high school, but I was clear about my path and what interested me the most.
I remember the days when I use to come back from my cricket practice and ask my dad to explain the inner workings of the car. I also have memories of googling tech-crunch and Engadget websites for hours reading articles about latest tech inventions in the field of mechanical engineering. The most interesting thing i find about my major is that it is involved in almost all kinds of fields whether it be aerospace, health, computer science etc. Mechanical engineering has vast applications in today's world.
Over the years, movies like Iron man and Avengers have inspired me about the possibilities future holds in terms of tech innovations. Everyday something new is released in the market, which keeps motivating me to continue on my journey in what interests me the most. Working with Arduino and programming it create even the most basic robot, gives me a sense of satisfaction. It also spurs me to find an alternative methods of completing my robot with better modifications and features.
I have an opportunity to learn about engineering from one of the world's best institution. Whether it be nanotechnology or robotics, Georgia tech has it all. This will not only help me expand my understanding about engineering, but also challenge my brain to go out of my comfort zone and solve problems relating to science.
