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.
Now, I believe that the study of computer science will nourish my acquired knowledge and provide expertise in problem solving and programming skills. When I was in higher secondary school, physics was one of the most mesmerizing subject to me. I had excitement to go deeper into my subject of interest that motivated me for setting goals to become a successful engineer. I had keen interest for learning new ideas and inner desire to reach a degree of excellence.
Watching closely to my father's work in the field of electronics and computer played a crucial role as my mind molded towards this technical studies. The programming courses like QBASIC, Visual Basic 5 introduced during my school days helped me understand how computers can be programmed and useful in real life. These courses intensified my interests towards logics and mathematics. My keen interest for learning new ideas and inner desire to reach the degree of excellence in the field of mathematics and logics made me realize that Engineering is the field where I can blend my skill and passion to create innovative ideas. My intense hard work, strong determination and passion for mathematics and logics paid off when I got the opportunity to study Bachelor’s Degree of Computer Engineering in my own country’s pioneer engineering institute, Institute of Engineering (IOE), Pulchowk Campus, Tribhuvan University.
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 been fortunate enough to have undergone various courses during my academic career, which have helped me build a strong foundation in my knowledge of Computer Science. In this transforming world of Computer Technology, where each new day sees a wave of new theories and trends, I want to stay on the fast track. An MS in Computer Science from a university of repute like yours would not only enable me to enhance my knowledge base, but also to venture into the research field, that has always fascinated me. Education has always been a topmost priority in my family.

My passion for science and craze towards technology inspired me to take up engineering. I chose to major in Electronics and communication engineering with a great desire to contribute to this demanding field. During my under graduate study I learned the fundamentals of Electronics Engineering which together with practical course work strengthened my interest. Right from my school, I was focused towards Mathematics, Science and research in general. Due to the same reason, I took up Physics, chemistry, Mathematics and Electronics as my major subjects in pre-university.
Statement Of Purpose In this ever-changing world of Engineering and Technology, where each new day sees a rush of new concepts and applications, the person who has an insatiable thirst for knowledge and passion for learning things emerges as the winner.Having worked in an environment where customer’s problems are identified and converted into technology solutions, I would like to pursue my masters in Computer Science, where I could enhance my technical skills further and get an insight into core concepts of computers. I introduce myself as an undergraduate student specialized in Information Technology at Gayatri Vidya Parishad College of Engineering. The passion I have for the computer science culminated in my undergraduate studies, when I was first introduced to programming, the fact that it was possible to express my ideas to a machine and program it to act the way I wanted it to, intrigued me.This interest I carried through with me made me take initiative to act as the team leader for the two Academic Projects. Thus I got a chance to put all my theoretical knowledge into practice, especially the programming skill which was my favorite. Myproficiency in programming languages C, C++, JAVA is praiseworthy.
This fueled a desire in me to learn more about computers and come up with solutions to even more complex problems. After my high school, I enrolled for Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science at the Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore, Tamil Nadu to gain further knowledge and progress myself in this field. The core subjects taken by leading faculties helped me gain knowledge in computer science.

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.
