STATEMENT OF PURPOSE Graduate study is a significant milestone in the perpetual journey of education. International degree from renowned offshore college, considered benchmark of academic excellence has become imperative to climb the rungs of professional ladder in India. Hailing from a civilized and learned family, the need to maintain one’s distinctive edge in a stiffly competitive market had descended on me pretty early. This thought process is the prime motivation for me to opt for ‘Practical elements of mechanical engineering’ program from Canada’s top Fanshawe College as Canada’s academic framework is robust and globally acclaimed.This statement is an attempt to project my credentials as an aspiring researcher, my achievements as a Mechanical undergraduate and my ambitions. Born in a family related to Mechanical engineering, I was greatly influenced by my grandfather, an environmental enthusiast who is a mechanical engineer in coal mines and deeply associated with them in the past at london as a part of royal engineers association. Although I joined in a hardcore mechanical company immediately after my graduation, I believed I wasn’t doing justice to my education and felt that the assignment was lesser enthusiastic. At this juncture, I am not pleased with the work and believed that it is the time to proliferate my learning to procure more such that it can be put into something for the greater use in future. My desire to take up graduate study at this college is a part of my journey towards reaching my professional and personal goals that I have set for myself. Mechanical Engineering, as a field has always fascinated me and I have always been influenced by the current innovations in the field because it is challenging and has applications related to many fields. As I undertook the courses, projects and seminars of this program, I found myself increasingly interested in the application of computers to the fields of Design and manufacturing systems. I undertook various challenging projects and assignments in this field which have given me an insight into the aspects related to industries and also have helped me know the limitations of my knowledge. This was also the main motivating factor behind my opting for the graduate studies. I feel a post graduate certificate in this course will bring specialization and perfection to my gamut of expertise and knowledge and help me in fulfilling my dream. Throughout my ten years of school life and two years of high school study, I have maintained a consistent and good academic record. Coming to extra-curricular activities, beside participation, I secured nine awards of merit in different inter house competitions and secured four awards of merit at sports. I had an excellent and consistent career graph throughout my school life. I always stood among the meritorious students in my class. I secured 94% in my 10th grade and 77% in my 12th grade. I pursued my bachelor of technology degree at M.V.S.R.Engineering college, one of the best academic institutions in Hyderabad. With good teaching and laboratory facilities, my college has laid primary emphasis to fundamentals both theoretical and practical on a wide range of subjects, which gave me a thorough understanding of essential features of the subjects and substantial motivations for research. Luckily, during my stay at the Engineering College, the things have shaped on the lines of my thinking. The college curriculum for this Engineering major is vast and touched several aspects of Mechanical Engineering with special emphasis on Engineering Mechanics, Metallurgy and material sciences, Thermal Engineering, Kinematics of machinery, Manufacturing process, CAD/CAM, Operations Research and Metal cutting and machine tool engineering . The study at the college was rewarding and laid a solid foundation in me over the subject and enhanced my enthusiasm. My professors were highly appreciative of my performance particularly in the practical field as well as my communication skills in the classroom, participation at national level Technical Symposiums. I was the winner of the robotic event “wrestlemania” held during “Kriya 2014” at the Vasavi college of Engineering. To expand the boundaries of my knowledge, I actively participated in intercollegiate events like ‘Maglev’ at NIT, Warangal where I stood in second place and won a Certificate of Excellence. During my course of under graduation I had an opportunity of doing a mini project on spray painting robot at my college as a part of my curriculum. I had done my major project in the prestigious DEFENCE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT LABORATORY which is under the control of Government of India, a multi-disciplinary Missile System laboratory with thrust on design, development and flight evaluation of various types of Missile Systems for armed forces, which is situated in Hyderabad, for a period of two months on “VIBRATION CONTROL OF AEROSPACE STRUCTURES BY USING VISCO-ELASTIC LAYERS” under the guidance of DRDL scientist. To continue my yearning I’ve been employed as an Assistant design engineer in at Mahivar Inc. Begumpet, Hyderabad since September 2016. My earnest desire to continue my further studies at this esteemed graduate school stems from the fact that it is one of the best educational institutions in the Canada having a long time record of academic excellence and is supportive by expert faculty and very good research facilities which I , presume may shape my future and also to achieve my goals. Further, only Fanshawe College offers specialization in this course in entire Canada. The other reason why I wanted to study at this is that it provides the kind of exposure needed to broaden my thinking and undo any prejudices towards Religion, Nationality, Culture and Race. I am sure that my exposure to these kinds of diverse influences would aid in over all development of my personality. I am keen to acquire all the above mentioned qualities which should be the basic attributes for men of the 21st century.These factors distinguish this college from the others not only in canada but also globally. In all, it is a comprehensive university that furnishes an education that will serve me well in my career and prepare me for a lifetime of learning. At the end of the course, I intend to come back to India and join the ranks of top notch Manufacturing Company where I can carry out further research with authority and autonomy. I am buoyant that India, as the fastest-growing trillion-dollar economy of the world will certainly bequeath me with a myriad of employment opportunities to take advantage of. There is no doubt that I will be able to utilize my academic training and pragmatic exposure from the master program to bring exceptional operational quality and value to the business.My passion for transforming the pathetic scenario of underdevelopment villages in Indian landscape would certainly allow me to succeed in my aims.
