I pursued my 12th grade CBSE Intermediate Board Exam securing 98% marks in Computer Science and 92% in Mathematics. My interest in Computer Science grew way back in school days and I began to expand my skills in programming and development. My interest and passion towards Mathematics and Computer science, particularly programming, gained me an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering, in one of the most reputed colleges in India - College of Engineering Trivandrum. In the early years of my undergraduate studies spanning 4 years, I gained in depth knowledge of the basic programming languages C, C++ and Java. The key features of each language made me realize that one was an improvement over th... ... middle of paper ... ...rent categories.
program at your esteemed university, I’ll take full advantage to grasp as much as possible with the extremely well designed curriculum of this program and to develop myself with all the requisites of an I.T professional. I would like to pursue my area of interest by doing the specialization in Database related research. Hence, I request that my application be considered for admission to your renowned department and also for the possible financial aid. I strongly feel that I can match the standards of your university and help contribute prolifically to the research endeavors at your University.
My academic curriculum in School was responsible for molding my interest in Computer Science. I got introduced to programming while I was studying in 8th grade, it made me very excited and I showed immense interest in this field. I have learnt C++ in 8th grade and Java (BlueJ) in 9th as well as in 10th grade. In 10th grade, I have secured 90% in Computer Application and have been among the toppers of our school in this subject. After the 10th grade I was motivated to take Computer Science as specialization in Senior High School (11th and 12th).
During my primary and secondary education, I was a proud recipient of several awards for academic and extracurricular activities. I attribute my strong academic profile to the perennial support from my parents. My interest in computers grew as I did some basic programming assignments. A simple quiz game in C language was the first application that I developed. Since then, I have targeted implementing much more complex applications.
I had learned BASICS, MS-DOS along with the subjects in my school curriculum. I chose Computers as my elective subject for my grade 10th (secondary school) to grasp the better understanding about Computers which led the foundation of Computer Engineering as my career. In my 12 years of schooling I was always ranked among top 2% of the class. My strong liking towards Mathematics and Science, helped me in doing fairly well during my 10th and 12th grades. After school, I appeared for State Entrance Exam for Engineering, in which I secured a position in top 2% out of two lakh aspirants.
It was the combination of my relentless hard work and my teachers’ continuous mentoring and my parent’s continuous support that helped me in securing a 88.16% in my 10th final exam with 99% in mathematics. Having secured such exceptional marks I realized that I was a mathematics guy with a penchant for mathematics coupled with the ability to succeed in it. With this in mind I had chosen mathematics, physics and chemistry as the main ... ... middle of paper ... ... the world provide an opportunity to mingle with people of different nationalities. Selecting a University from a bounty of options seemed to me -a Herculean task. I narrowed down my selection to a few parameters like geography of college, the research activities undertaken, the department, and the faculty and the vision of the University.
I am confident that given an opportunity, I will be able to make significant mark in my field of study. Summing up I have a strong desire to learn the new concepts, and self-reliance to face challenges put forth under any circumstances. And more over I strongly believe that a master’s degree from your university will be a deciding factor in shaping my future. I shall be elated if an opportunity is given to me to pursue my masters at your university. I am confident that the technical knowledge that I procured along with my undergraduate studies will help me in my graduate studies at your institution.
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).
Because of the presence of electronic gadgets all around and desire to know about their working prompted me to take up Electronics and Communication Engineering for my under graduate study.

At the university of buffalo there is a good amount of research work going in areas of networking, computing. There are labs and research groups for every area like Shake and Bake(SnB) for High-performance and grid computing, Center for Unified Bio metrics and Sensors (CUBS) for pattern recognition, machine learning and data mining.
I am interested to work with Associate Professor Yashar Ganjali, Professor Peter Marbach and Assistant Professor Bianca Schroeder. If given an opportunity, I am sure that I will utilize my complete potential to contribute to the research going on at present in the university. After the completion of graduate studies, I look forward to being an Industrial Researcher and contribute to the cutting edge technology. It will be my privilege to pursue my graduate studies at your Institution. I will surely live up to the expectations of the distinguished faculty members and uphold the prestige of your institute.
