Statement of purpose
The knowledge acquired in schools and colleges, I believe is not an education but the means to it. It is this belief that makes me ‘a student to the end of my days’, the obvious direction being curiosity towards exploration.
As a mechanical engineering undergraduate student with an ardent interest in the industrial work environment, I have learnt the principles of mechanical engineering that are applicable to most machines and processes thereby naturally widening my scope of learning and research. This has intrigued me to explore the option of pursuing masters course in Aerospace Engineering from your prestigious university, which I believe will not only compliment my knowledge that I have acquired but also provide me with the best possible platform to achieve my ambition.
I draw my inspiration towards this field from my curiosity to know about what happens inside these machines at a very impressionable age. This naturally triggered in me a desire to know the reason behind their precise and accurate working. Due to my innate interest in the field of aerospace engineering and impressive performance in the engineering entrance examination, I secured a seat at the coveted St Joseph Engineering College, Mangalore. My undergraduate study has given me a wide exposure to subjects like Mechatronics, Mechanical Vibrations, Turbomachines, Control Engineering etc. My undergraduation has been an edifying experience as I had the opportunity of visiting diverse industries to gain a close look at the application of mechanics and its related theories. I possess immense quest for knowledge which enabled me to score more than 85% marks in practical labs of all aforementioned courses. In addition to this, with the increasing role of computers in every field of engineering, I underwent career enhancing courses like CAED and Lab View which helped me to learn various design aspects.
Owing to my interest in the concepts pertaining to turbomachines, mechanical vibration, design, I am currently working on a project in final year titled ‘Hovering Multipurpose Agro Carrier’ which works on Bernoulli’s principle. This carrier is designed to perform mid-air agricultural operations like seed shooting and crop dusting, which has been well received and appreciated by the department professors and the HOD. My interest in application of mechanical engineering in aviation led me undertake this project.
After completing my undergraduation I will be undertaking an internship program at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited’. Through this internship I hope to work alongside experienced mechanical engineers, apply the principles I have learnt during my undergraduate study and become familiar with different types of machinery. Working with such experienced personnel’s will surely be a challenging task but I hope to gradually develop in me an effective leadership skill along with enhancing my technical expertise.
At this juncture, I feel that the tremendous opportunities arising out have reinforced my goals and have developed a keen desire in me to pursue my masters course in aerospace engineering from your university, which would definitely equip me with comprehensive and specialised
skills in all aspects of aerospace engineering. I believe that, there cannot be a better platform than this university to obtain advance knowledge of the aerospace field. The excellently structured program with high tech facilities, excellent faculty and the highly suitable environment match my requirements to achieve new heights in life.
I am confident that I have the capability to contribute positively towards your esteemed university. I am fully aware of the fact that pursuing this course requires a high level of intelligence, dedication and immense sacrifice. I do believe my formative years have taught me well and prepared me for this phase. With great hope, I eagerly wait for your benevolent act of accepting me into your fold and granting me an admission in my desired course.
