Statement of Purpose

Good Essays
Completing 4 years of undergraduate studies in mechanical engineering and 30 months of work experience in semiconductor equipment manufacturing sector have given me a lot to learn. I have experienced that role of a mechanical engineer demands much more in depth knowledge of the field. Having worked with great minds in mechanical engineering, I have felt great urge towards pursuing my graduate study so that I can discuss the ideas with same level of knowledge. In every student’s life, graduate study is the crucial point and I want to make sure that I learn as much as possible by pursuing my graduate study. With this intention, I am writing down my statement of purpose.

The habit of learning something new always acted as a catalyst in all my academic achievements. To note some of those achievements, I scored 94 % and 92% marks in mathematics in my 10th and 12th standard. I also achieved a national rank of 214 in the mathematics section in National Level Science Talent Search Examination. As, in my 11th and 12th standard, my 6th subject was engineering drawing; I had the opportunity to study engineering before even my college started. Consequently, pursuing mechanical engineering was the only goal/choice in my mind, at that time, because of my love towards maths and fighter planes. Working towards the goal, I secured a national rank of 6778 in joint entrance examination and was placed in top 1% student of the country. However, I ...
