Technology has forever changed the world
we live in. We are online, in one way or another, all day long. Computers has
become reflections of our interests and identities. I am very excited at the
prospect of devoting my career to a fast advancing field and learn innumerable
things. At an early age from eight to thirteen years, I used computers for
playing animated games, storing texts and listening to songs but later I
understood the importance of computers with varied aspects.
As a high school student, I excelled
in courses related to physics, maths and chemistry.
It was grateful to have teachers who saw my interests in these subjects and
encouraged me to continue broadening my scientific understanding and developing
my analytical skills. Their guidance and support helped me to gain an in-depth
knowledge and my reasoning capabilities increased successively regarding the
subjects. I achieved the class of distinction (76%) and first class (68%) in 10th
and 12th standard respectively in my school.
My efforts to select the appropriate
course and college began from here itself. My curiosity pertaining to the
understanding of working with different domains of computer technology
increased significantly. My desire to gain more knowledge in this domain was
one of the main factors for which I took Computer Engineering. Because of my
academic performance, I was able to attain admission in Venus International
College of Technology.
In my undergraduate study at Venus
International College of Technology, at an early stage, I came across basic
programming languages such as C, C++, and Java and learned the programming
skills. My undergraduate education has definitely gratified a significant amount
of my passion towards Software Engineering, Networking and Artificial
Intelligence. My keen interest in Web Technology has also moulded the skills
pertaining to social media sites. However, along with the studies, I
endeavoured to update my knowledge with the latest trends regarding the
Networking and Software’s; hence, I attended various seminars like Hackathon,
Cyber Security, and languages like Python, Pearl, and PHP in the institute as
well as in Tech Fest of the college and underwent crucial training.
In the third year of my college, I modelled
a “railway management system” based on java language. During the final year, I
decided to establish a project of medical website planted on PHP and python
language, which titled “MEDICOS”. It is an ongoing project carried out in 7th
semester, and I am looking forward with the same in the 8th
semester. In 7th semester, initially, we underwent the complete analysis
and requirements for the project to provide the solution regarding the
difficulties faced by the doctors and clinics. Consequently, we built the user
side and admin side panel during that span of time. In 8th semester,
the project will be focussing on the MYSQL database and after the completion of
the project; I would begin with the testing process to identify the errors and
resolve it. After the completion of this project, I would understand the
significance of patience and time management because at times results may not
be as per your expectations.
In the third semester, the score of
several subjects affected my result but it was only the dedication and affection
towards the studies that helped me score high. I equally gave interests in all
the subjects but out of that, the subjects like networking and cyber security,
operating systems, database management system, software engineering and data
mining were my favourite.
My academic pursuits has not terminated me from
participating in various co-curricular activities such as organizing seminars
and serving as a representative of the class. These activities has led me to
the development of a multifaceted personality and equipped with strong
interpersonal skills. My quality towards the presentation skills reflected in
one of the presentation held in the college regarding the safety towards the
“Ransomware” virus for which the faculty members appraised and awarded me the
title of “Best Presenter”.
The MS program in
Computer Science offered by the University (of Ottawa) is ideal and appropriate
for me, the program suits my interest regarding the course and it will
undoubtedly provide me with the right knowledge, skills, and experience to
pursue that course and exploit the opportunities fully. I am confident my
exposure to such initiatives would quite augment my knowledge base and add
tremendous value in enabling me to realize my professional goals. By studying
at your university, I expect to have the expertise, perspective necessary to
lead our industry and provide a part to contribute to the society and take it
to the doorstep of new era.
