‘The sum total of what one knows is negligible, finally what is important is, one should pursue knowledge’.

I am an Engineer and the desire for incessant pursuit of knowledge guides me to University of Strathclyde in order to acquire a MSc Electronic & Electrical Engineering.

My Academic Background:

I opted for Electronics in high school for two years, which acted as a portal for the world of Electrical Engineering for me. This subject dealt with fundamentals of electrical sciences, motors, electrical instruments in addition to concepts related to modulation, radio receivers and operational amplifiers. The outcome of my interest in this subject was reflected in the results of the 12th grade public examination conducted by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (M.S.B.S.H.S.E.) in which I scored 93.5% in this subject. I also secured the highest marks in English in the Nagpur Division. I was second in my school in 10th grade public examination, conducted by Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education.

The aspiration to learn more about Electrical Engineering came to my mind with my high scores in my XII std. which gave me a position in the Electrical Engineering department of Shri Ramdeobaba Kamla Nehru Engineering College (S.R.K.N.E.C.), a premier school for engineering and applied science in Central India, accredited by NBA, AICTE, New Delhi. The entire course in Electronics Design Technology has helped me to improve progressively my perception of the field and accrue academic and applied knowledge combined with relevant skills. During the course of engineering my favorite subjects were Digital Electronics, Signals & Systems, Digital Signal Processing and Communication Systems. I have always been a topper in my class. I attributed these achievements to the fact that I genuinely enjoyed what I learnt.

Why Study in University of Strathclyde?

I can only imagine the future but I can design it today. The application for admission in University of Strathclyde offers the best course in MSc Electronic & Electrical Engineering. The research facilities and the faculty at the university are par excellent. I am now convinced that admission to the University of Strathclyde will be tremendously beneficial to my overall intellectual development and will provide requisite exposure and grooming to enable me make a positive contribution towards my chosen field. The University also encompasses a rich student heritage, blending into which I would take as a privilege.

I am fully aware of the fact that a master’s degree requires sincerity, devotion and determination. It is belief that I cannot be more prepared or willing to work towards achieving it. I hope that you will give me a chance to prove myself.

I am looking forward to study in UK and I will be very happy if I get a chance to study in University of Strathclyde.

The human society is a network that is not linear. People as the activity centers act as the nodes of this network. The cross involvement of these nodes is what creates risks and opportunities. This observation sterns my belief that handful of good men can change the society. I would like to contribute as a teacher. My application for master’s degree is a step in this direction. This will help me focus on my research interests with a greater clarity. I plan to pursue the same through a Ph.D.

My value-based upbringing in an Indian household fostered my growth as a boy excellent in academics with multifarious interests. My interests include public speaking, quizzing, sports and drawing and painting. Winning many accolades, rendering speeches at “Independence day” gathering and securing place of honor in regional talent search examination are all indicators of my motivation to enhance all the facets of my persona.

My father used to share the electrical engineering concepts with me. Whenever possible I used to go with him to his workplace. There I learned about the intricate relation of electrical and electronic engineering. I got an opportunity to know about electronics in my junior college where I studied it as a major. I spent my leisure time in laboratory, which increased my fascination for the subject. Hence I opted for electronics as a major for my undergraduate study and secured admission at the prestigious Regional Engineering College (REC), Surat. There is a REC in every major state of India and it spearheads the technology update and engineering research being carried about in that state. Recently seven RECs have received NIT (National Institute of Technology) status and REC, Surat is one of them.

My favorite subjects in engineering were Microprocessors, Computer architecture and organization, Telecommunication and Computer networks. I enjoyed working in the laboratory after college hours. This gave me an opportunity to build on the concepts taught in class. In our class we had formed a group for sharing knowledge. We used to read magazines like IEEE and Electronics today. Every week we used to sit together and discuss about the interesting areas and possible frontiers for laboratory work. We would then translate those ideas into combination logic circuits and microprocessor. I used to add Indian perspective to what ever we discussed. India being a developing country poses the challenges of developing effective as well as cheap solutions. We came across a paper on “Instrumentation for Detection and Location of electric arcs.” Paper was proposed using neural networks. Teaming up with one of the group members, I worked a lot and reduced some of the features conceiving a solution based on the use of microprocessor, which would cater Indian market. Our paper titled “Microprocessor based instrumentation for Detection and Location of electric arcs” about the same was well appreciated at IIT-Delhi and BITS, Pilani which are premier institutes in the country in their respective technical symposiums

My final year project was on “Design and Establishment of LAN”. Which was further divided for my group as “The design of physical layer” including LAN Card and routing hardware for the LAN. Routing hardware was my area of focus. The network was based on star topology with a central routing hardware. The central routing hardware was based on channel sharing for which I used TDM (Time division multiplexing). My project work was evaluated as one of the best in the class.

Working on the projects gave me a sound technical base. But the greatest advantage of involving myself in these activities was that I developed the ability to multitask effectively. Besides academics I was active in organizing and participating in extracurricular events like sports meet and inter-college youth festival. My performances in drama and other literary events were often appreciated for their uniqueness and creativity. These activities have helped me in my evolution towards becoming a versatile person, which I feel is a need of the day. In this process I could not achieve the grades I wanted to in the earlier part of my engineering study. But I soon garnered the skill of judicious time and energy allocation. I did well in later part of my engineering. Moreover I do not feel that the marks I scored are the sole indicators of my understanding about the subjects. The cogent reason to augment my belief is the final year of my engineering.

Asea Brown Boveri (ABB, my present employer) visited the college campus and offered me a job in the area of Process Automation. I was among the twenty candidates selected from best institutes across the country. I passed six rounds of technical and personal interviews and was one among the two students selected from my college. For me it meant a chance to apply the knowledge gained so far in Electronics and Instrumentation. I grabbed the opportunity and made the most of it. It not only gave me the necessary industrial exposure, but also helped my save up some funds for my studies in UK.

The corporate environment was very much different. The concept of on the job learning, accountability of work at hand and conformance to standard procedures of working gave me a greater focus. The most challenging aspect however was the rate of learning, which was immense. As a part of my first project I developed software tools for workflow automation. Acquiring the in-depth understanding of the workflow processes was a major hurdle in the task.

I interacted a lot, with people taking guidance about what exactly is required from the tools. The tools I made are now a part of the standards that are followed in my department.

I am now involved in developing Automation solutions for Pulp and Paper applications. Our solution standard Paper Machine concept 200 (PMC 200) is comprehensive and very well documented which enables us to develop solutions with considerable ease. It is an experience, which has given me a deep insight about how to maximize the utility of a research. In the projects we undertake we have to work in a cross-functional team and interact with people working with ABB across the globe. We often go the customer sites for commissioning and servicing of equipment supplied by us. These experiences have helped me in my effort of becoming a more acceptable person, which prepares me in the direction of becoming a good teacher.

Nottingham Trent University is known for its excellent engineering faculty and has excellent industry links. An MSc in Electronics Engineering from here would enable me to learn both theory and the practical aspects, which I feel are must even to be a successful researcher. I hope that I would be selected on to the program and given an opportunity to study in NTU.
