During the four-year program in Information Technology, I learnt several programming languages including C, C++, Java, Assembly (usin... ... middle of paper ... ...ollege. I strongly think that a Master’s Degree in Computer Science will help me understand advanced concepts in the fields that I intend to specialize. Not only will the degree give me a head start but it will also help me uncover new areas in the fields of Artificial Intelligence or Data Management. I believe that Rochester Institute of Technology is a place where I can gain knowledge and experience needed to accomplish my goal of becoming a computer programmer with proficiency in the mentioned specialization. I understand that your university is among the premier Computer Science colleges.
Statement of Purpose In this era of information technology I feel a sense of pride in being so closely associated with the field of computer science. The desire to forge ahead in this field by doing cutting-edge research has motivated me to pursue graduate studies. In my childhood, I was very inquisitive and used to wonder how different machines and instruments work. Right from the age of 13, I was given the opportunity to gain acquaintance with Computers. I had learned BASICS, MS-DOS along with the subjects in my school curriculum.

An excellent exposure to Machine Learning and basics of Neural Networks in the past 4 years, has motivated me to continue my studies further at your university, as I believe it is the most resourceful department that caters to my interests. I look forward to a career in research under your tutelage, which will assist me in applying my academic knowledge to make noteworthy contributions in the field of my interest. I believe that graduate studies would provide me with opportunities to attend advanced courses and would be the stepping stone in my career. The active researches carried out by Prof. Timothy W. Bretl and Professor in the field of Machine Learning also have encouraged me to apply here.
From my childhood till today, my most remarkable attributes have been my curiosity to learn new topics. My avid interest for learning new ideas, when blended with my inner desire to reach a degree of excellence in every piece of work I execute, enabled me to acquire substantial knowledge on various aspects of nature and technology, furthermore leading me through a successful educational career. During my early ages in school, I was introduced to MS-DOS, ‘BASIC’ language and on how computers can be practiced. From then, I became fascinated about computers. Though I was exposed to more of theoretical aspects of computers than practical aspects in my last three years of high school, an extensive foundation in all the fields of computer science began after I joined the Bachelor of Engineering program at a university which provided outstanding faculty, splendid laboratory facilities, advanced curriculum which keeps us acquainted with the latest changes in the field of computers and a highly ambitious environment provided me with a broad exposure to the core computer subjects with proper practical training.
I have improved my programming skills by taking elective courses, competing in different competitions and contributing open source projects. Among these courses I took, the most interesting ones were Artificial Intelligence, Numerical Analysis, Parallel Programming, Computer Architecture and Networks. I also took online courses at various websites and attended many seminars to sharpen my skills. Since Galatasaray University attaches as much importance to mathematical courses as the programming courses, I have gained a solid background in advanced mathematics. At the 4th semester of my studies, me and my team awarded with the jury's special prize at the IBM Software Academy (2012).
My application for a Master of Science in Computer Science at your esteemed university is a step towards attaining my goal to build a successful career in the I.T. industry by pursuing a master’s degree in computer science which will greatly help me to enhance my existing knowledge about computers and also to develop my overall personality with the must-haves of an I.T. professional. The fascinating world of computers was first introduced to me at the tender age of 10 years, in my fourth grade. We had a practical lab session every week in school in which we were taught about the basic peripherals and working of the computer.
I have a solid background in computer science and application programming with five years of hands-on experience in programming languages such as Java, C, C++ which is built on top of a rigorous graduate degree and postgraduate diploma in Computer science and Engineering. After my Higher Secondary Education from a reputable school with subjects includes Math, Science and Biology, I was determined to pursue my career in Computer Science. I earned a merit seat in Rajiv Gandhi College of Engineering affiliated to Anna University through the common entrance examination. I believed that a quality post-graduation study in Computer Science will be hugely helpful to gain considerable knowledge in the application development domain. Hence I have joined C-DAC, a premier research institute of India for my Post-Graduate Diploma in Advanced Computing.
Due to the same reason, I took up Physics, chemistry, Mathematics and Electronics as my major subjects in pre-university. As a part of my electronics laboratory, I had constructed logic gates and simple latches using basic circuit elements. I was so amazed by the Power of Electronics which prompted me to take Electronic and communication engineering as my under-graduate major. My natural strength has been my quantitative and analytical abilities. My rank was 3237 among more than one lakh students who took engineering entrance examination.
Finally, my bachelor dissertation was on computer networking with distinction level. Computer Technology has been growing rapidly for the last decade, and its importance to the modern world has led me to pursue it to a higher level and achieving postgraduate. More to say, I am eager to further my knowledge, and keep up with advances in the world of computing and in Computer ... ... middle of paper ... ...ducation environment with appropriate teaching method and up-to-date teaching facilities. I also realize that United States is one of the best countries with an international reputation for innovative education, leading edge, practical research, and high ranking in the world. Studying the specified fields would for sure help my country simply because the way of studying is more advanced and progressive there and I think it’s very important to get more experience to help the students in our universities.
I believed it is the ideal way for me to gain the knowledge and skills to stand tall as a computer professional. During my undergraduate studies I had a very good understanding of all major areas of Computer Science, which has given me a comprehensive knowledge on some basic areas like Web Technologies, Database Management Systems, Operating Systems, Distributed Systems, Computer Graphics, Programming Languages, Computer Networks and Artificial Intelligence. ... ... middle of paper ... ...me. I am filled with a strong desire to get started on the path that would lead me towards the fulfillment of my goal. I assure you of my absolute commitment and dedication towards the same.
