‘The sum total of what one knows is negligible, finally what is important is, and one should pursue knowledge’.
I am an Engineer and the desire for incessant pursuit of knowledge guides me to the University of Wolverhampton in order to acquire an MSc in Computer Science.
My Academic Background:
In my undergraduate studies, I have benefited from the breadth of Nagpur University’s syllabi content that has given me a comprehensive exposure to the core areas of Computer Science and a strong conceptual understanding of the same. In these three and half years of study, I have strived to maintain an approach of expending independent effort in all my endeavors. Learning by myself and sharing my knowledge with others has been most worthwhile, when comprehending a concept.
Over the past two years, I have developed an interest in the areas of Compiler Construction, Artificial Intelligence, Web Based Technologies and Database Management System. The Compiler Construction lab sessions last semester required the design of a compiler for C programs that were restricted to for loops, Switch case statements and simple input and output. The work involved in this, as well as the courses, Formal Systems and Automata and Compiler Construction, has leaded me to appreciate the intricacies involved in this field. However, for my MSC degree, I remain open to other topics as well.
My Extra-Curricular Activities:
I enjoyed taking part in sports, singing, debate etc. I always was at the forefront in organizing different events in school as well as the colleges. One person’s life influences the lives of an unbelievable number of people, one of the most important lessons I learned, being the Head of the Organizing Body at senior secondary level (11th and 12th standard). It taught me that the basis for good work is self-reliance and very importantly, time management. Not all of my entire two years were devoid of shortcomings. I learned to accept both criticism and praise with a positive frame of mind. My work involved organising various events, that brought with them the opportunity to work and interact with various kinds of people. This was a distinctively gratifying experience for me, which I feel would stand in good stead in the future, especially in lieu of any teaching experience.I was School Pupil Leader in school because of which I understood the greatness of Leadership I was also a class representative for most of the time in my school days. As playing cricket is my hobby I played at club level and at inter-college level, but couldn’t continue for higher level.
My Research Interests:
I am very much impressed by Neural Networks, expert Systems, and Virtual Reality so I want to design such software because of which a Master of Surgery student can practice a surgery or study a human body on the computer or on the big screen itself i.e. this thing doesn’t need a dead body or a live patient. All the things would be like real thing i.e. movment of hands, respond from virtual patient, his body parts and all the other aspects that are involved in the surgery process. Similarly the body parts of the virtual patient will be the same as human body parts. In this way a student can get a whole idea of the human body and when he is fully trained he can operate a real body.
My Career Plans:
After ten years I envision myself as engaged in a career of active research. I also get immense pleasure from teaching. I enjoy interacting with people and this leads me to believe that sharing with them the knowledge that I gain though my research would be a very rewarding experience. My dream is to open an institute dedicated to promoting DSP and play a part in the DSP revolution.
