The mind must never be kept idle because of its tremendous capacity to absorb and learn. After careful consideration of my aptitude, interests and experiences gained while pursuing my under graduation in the field of Computer Science and Engineering, I have decided to pursue my Masters in the field of Computer Science. Being a dynamic and ever evolving field, many new developments are expected and there is immense scope for research on new products and applications. To progress and make a mark in this field, I realize that it is important for me to pursue my Masters from a reputable university. I have always dreamt of taking up research.
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. I would regard my admission to your esteemed University not only as a great honour but also as a great responsibility and challenge to prove myself.
When we talk about dreams, the first thing that comes to my mind is Virtual Reality because of my interest in Computer Science. The advancement in the field of Computer Science in the new millennium has helped many people realize their dreams by making their living and working a lot easier than before. Computers now have become an indispensible part of everyone’s life. I have always had an ambition of doing something big, this ambition and along with my stalwart desire to gain in-depth knowledge about computers have been the prime reasons of my decision to pursue graduate studies in the field of computer science in your university which will offer a lot of opportunities to succeed and achieve my goals. Working with computers has always attracted me, I liked taking notes on M.S.
I hope my analytical abilities, fast learning capacity, knowledge, dedication and my love for Computer Science and programming will place me worthy of consideration for admission at your esteemed institution. Finally I take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to express myself.
I, Likhitha, have been fascinated by the advancements in technology and innovations. Since my schooling, I have been inclined towards problem solving; this made me to opt for sciences – Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics in my high school education. Gradually I was introduced to one of the most ingenious human innovations: the computer. Soon I was attracted to the fact that it has a major role to play in the contemporary world. My interest in them propelled me to learn language packages like C, C++, J2SE and advanced Java, and also take up the courses on Oracle, MySQL, HTML and MATLAB.
To understand those concepts better, I worked with ‘Minix’ operating systems which ... ... middle of paper ... ...portunity, but also a great challenge in terms of security. The idea of making a commendable contribution to the computing world by helping protect the information has led me towards building an expertise in system programming and networks, which I believe are essential skills to being a security researcher. The EmEA scholarship would aid me in this endeavor by allowing me to take up the excellent Masters Programme in Information technology at Uppsala University. I aspire to take up courses such as the Secure Computer Systems by Bjorn Victor and work under the guidance of professors like Dr. Joachim Parrow, which would prepare me better for pursuing my Ph.D. Moreover, being in a top international university would broaden my horizons by providing a multicultural experience and contribute to my personal development by enhancing my leadership and interpersonal skills.
I believe that this degree from your esteemed institution will be able to quench my thirst for knowledge and will help me explore new depths in my field of interest. My extensive Computer Science background and my ambitious nature will allow me to function well within the program. I have ambitions and aspirations, which I believe can only be fulfilled through higher studies under the supervision of a great faculty such as yours.
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.
With my intentions firmly in place to gather both sound knowledge and expertise in the field of Computer Science at the Master’s level, I am on the look out for the best education I can avail in CS at this phase. I am intrigued, deeply fascinated and motivated by the latest trend for convergent sciences and technical developments. This has made technical applications even more versatile and utilitarian in the world. With the fact that pure sciences are now blurring and finally being accepted as one seamless search for truth, it is also undergoing major upheavals and changes on the educational front. Motivation and inspiration from biological examples are being taken and re-invented in the technical areas using major contributions from the computer chip and software sciences.
Statement of Purpose I have always found the simplistic pleasure of solving a challenging problem to be most satisfying. The journey of discovering solutions brings its own joys and learning. I aim to pursue a career in research, because it brings with it intellectual challenges and opportunities to innovate. I am, therefore, highly motivated to pursue graduate studies in Computer Science. During my time at IIT Kanpur, where the curriculum offers flexibility in terms of elective courses, I have striven to explore diverse fields through courses and projects.
