One of the happiest moments in my life was when I cleared my engineering entrance test, and got an admit at PES Institute of technology for Bachelor’s in Mechanical. Having been part of this institution has given me a strong foundation in Core Mechanical subjects such as Dynamics and Kinematics of Machines, Solid and Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Manufacturing Sciences and Vibrations. It was my dream to be a mechanical engineer since the time I experimented with a Simple Pendulum in my high school Physics lab. I was closely acquainted with many subjects, but there are only few which really captivated me. It was during third semester when I learnt that I will be studying fluid mechanics as a core subject, which will be taught by Mr. Padmashree Dr. T S Prahlad, Chair professor in fluid mechanics.
I also presented a term paper at the end of my course. My interest in VLSI design only kept growing with time and that motivated me to read several IEEE published papers on the subject, like High Speed VLSI architecture for general linear feedback shift register (LFSR) structures and Reconfiguration Technique for Reducing Test Time and Test Data Volume which helped me not only understand the design process a little better but also introduced me to the pressing need for creating cost effective testing methods. This is how my interest in VLSI Design grew over the years. Why Masters? During my sophomore year in college, I took a course in Micro controllers and embedded systems and got to learn a great deal about designing and programming micro controllers.
I, Sai Pradeep Keesari, completed my under-graduation majoring in Mechanical Engineering from M.V.S.R Engineering College, affiliated to Osmania University. I have a strong desire to contribute to the field of Mechanical Engineering and to solve intricate practical problems in the same. With this objective in mind, I seek admission to the MS program in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University Of Houston. Understanding the real life phenomenon and their physics intrigued me at a very early stage. I was in my Grade 11 when I first came across “The Fundamentals of Physics” by Robert Resnick, David Halliday and Jearl Walker.
Pursuing my interest, in 2006, I started my bachelors program at Taibah University. Madinah, Saudi Arabia, then in 2012, I started my masters program at Sacred Heart University with expected graduation in Dec 2014. In fact, the education at Taibah University and Sacred Heart University deepened my understanding of chemistry. In 2010, I received a bachelor's degree in chemistry from Taibah University. My undergrad research was done with Professor Fethi Kooli.
I wish that I would’ve known about this book before I took chemistry, as it would’ve helped my grades in the class currently. The Cartoon Guide to Chemistry by Larry Gonick and Craig Criddle is a wonderful book to read. This book explains the basics of chemistry and its overall purpose in our lives. The book includes valuable information about elements, atoms, the periodic table, matter, chemical reactions, thermodynamics, DNA, electrochemistry, reaction rate, equilibrium, solutions, and much more. This book has left a great impact on me and my life.
In my senior years, I developed a strong interest in the field of power generation and power system protection. So, I decided to do my final year project on the “Protection system of 3-phase interconnected distribution system”. I was leading my group in this project and my tasks were the designing and simulation of the project. The main challenges were to design the directional element and provide a reliable protection in the event of a fault. The directional relay, which I designed, was a microcontroller based model to detect the direction of power flow.
I chose Chemical Engineering as my undergraduate major at Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur which provided me the opportunity to explore the breadth of chemical engineering. While the core courses provided the fundamentals of the field, the electives that I chose helped me gain an insight into the various facets of chemical engineering. My main aim during my undergraduate studies was to get an overview of the various fields in chemical engineering and identify a field of interest in which I could pursue my research career. Because of their vast applications, Materials & Polymer Sciences, in general, have attracted m... ... middle of paper ... ...timulating academic environment and interaction with the distinguished faculty at Columbia University will prove immensely fruitful and facilitate my development as an individual researcher in my field. I feel that XXXX has a lot to offer me, and at the same time, I believe that I would be able to make a positive contribution to on-going research work at XXXX.
Overdriven by my fascination and curiosity I took science as a major in high school and finally mechanical engineering as a specialization in my bachelors degree. During my under-graduate studies, I took part in many technical and non-technical events to keep myself updated with the latest technological developments. I took part in many TED-X conferences hosted by my University. Through these conferences I realized how simple concepts from various engineering fields could be integrated and converted into a technology that could be used to provide optimum sustainability and improve the efficiency of various mechanical processes. To test my theoretical knowledge, I took part in “SAE Mini Baja”, an annual event conducted by SAE - Society for Automobile Engineers.
The first opportunity I got to exercise my pent-up curiosity in electronics was when I matriculated as an Undergraduate at Manipal Institute of Technology. The VLSI Design course in my fifth semester drew my attention towards microminiaturization technology. My reasons for such a focus were manifold; I had a brilliant professor for this course, who placed great emphasis on the pioneering research happening at the micro scale. Also, VLSI is the crucial link between electronic circuits and computation systems, both of which are subjects close to my heart. Consequently, I selected the VLSI/ULSI process technologies elective in the subsequent semester.
During my undergrad freshman study my eagerness of working with science will tremendously increase when I studied the course textile raw material I and II where I understand different natural and synthetic material, its manufacturing process, behavior, amorphousness, crystalline of material which push me to think in different way about textile material... ... middle of paper ... ...earch work in biomedical materials,polymer science,nanotechnology,biodegradability, processing and so on in which I wish to work with these research.So I think If I get admission in UMass Dartmouth then I try my best to prove myself as a future researcher by hard working and my experience. I have confidence about that I am fulfilling the requirement of admission at your university.So from my keen ship towards research and the dream to be scientist is come true when I get admission on UMass Dartmouth.Getting admission in that university not only give me an opportunity to go ahead with my goals but also give me a responsibility to do hardworking genius faculty and gathering experience.I think I am ready to face this lucky situation along with my research career.So according to my academic result and experience I wish the insight consideration of admission committee
