My interest in the field of Electrical technology and
my curiosity to know how things around us work right from childhood motivated
me to take up engineering during under graduation. I choose Electronics and
Instrumentation as my major because of my fierce passion to explore how Electronics
and Electrical appliances around us work and of what they were built. In My
under graduation, I learned the basics of Electrical, Electronics and
Instrumentation both theoretically and practically. In the course of study, I
was exposed to various modules such as Electrical circuit theory, Electrical
machines, Control systems, Digital signal processing and VLSI design. I was
astonished by the power of Electrical & Electronics and understood the
impact it had in our daily life. This made me more inquisitive towards Electrical
engineering and created an interest in me to explore its grass roots. 

The academic project that I worked during the final
year was titled Advanced Driver
Assistance system. It made use of visible light communication protocol
based on IEEE.802.15.7 and AVR Microcontrollers. This project involved PAN ID
matching method to control the speed of automobiles to a limited range. It was
rated one of the best projects in my college during that academic year. I also presented
a paper at a national level technical symposium on Wireless transmission of electricity. I have been on industrial
visits to power plants such as Neyveli lignite power corporation and Ennore
thermal power plants. Here I learnt how electricity was produced from thermal
energy. Also I was introduced to various areas of energy systems and control
systems.

During the final year of my study, I went for an in plant
training to Subashri bio energies (P) Ltd; This firm makes use of organic
poultry waste to produce electricity and this idea fascinated me. Here I was
introduced to the method of power production by using organic wastes at a very
less cost, I also learnt various techniques on power generation and
distribution. It was at this place, where I got to understand the importance of
eco-friendly power production and power production from renewable energy
sources. This made me more passionate about energy systems and I was curious to
explore the various techniques involved in it.

The major challenge that we face today in the 21st
century is providing energy to the increasing population and catering the energy
needs of modern industries. In India, we mostly rely on conventional methods of
power productions from fossil fuels. This has taken a toll on our environment.
Thus there is a need for us to produce energy from renewable sources. I strongly
believe that by incorporating eco-friendly techniques and by generating power
from renewable energy sources, we can cater the needs of the growing population
and the current Industrial revolution without harming our environment. This
belief in me and my strong emphasis on production of electricity from renewable
sources made me to take the decision of doing a Master’s program in Electrical
engineering with specializing in energy systems. So that after my graduation, I
can work in a field that caters the needs of the society and thereby fulfilling
my career ambitions.

The reason I choose to study Master of engineering in
Electrical and computer science specializing in energy system at the University
of Alberta is that your university will provide me the platform where I can
learn to grow in the field of Electrical engineering and provide me the calibre
to match international parameters. You have one of the best laboratory
facilities such as the unique Nano & Micro fabrication facility and RTX
(Real Time Experimental laboratory, the latest equipment’s and a unique
curriculum. Being under the guidance of your experienced faculty will help me
to strengthen my knowledge and will help me achieve academic excellence. Your
training will help me develop my skills to manage the core aspects of electrical
engineering and thereby create a pathway for me to become an efficient professional.
Moreover, University of Alberta is one of the top ranked universities in the world
and has kept its standards high right from the time when it was started in
1908.

I strongly believe that it is an Engineers
responsibility to make life better for everyone living on this planet. I
understand that I have to work hard and compete with top scholars from all
around the globe. I believe that my commitment towards everything I pursue and
my eminent academic records, makes me a prospective candidate to be admitted in
your university. My experience in your university is going to enhance my technical
skills and will help me build my career. At this moment I want to thank you for
giving me the opportunity to express myself and my aspirations.
