That is why I decided to have a master's degree in computational science and engineering. Thanks to the mathematical background and the programming skills that I have combined with engineering approach I have gained, I strongly believe that I am sufficient to be a good candidate for TUM CSE. I have no doubt that TUM CSE will take me to an international level with its education system and strong relations with multinational companies. Therefore, it would be a privilege to be able to secure admission to pursue graduate studies at TUM CSE.
Statement of Purpose Sepehr Assadi I am applying to the California Institute of Technology for admission to PhD program in computer science. My chief area of interest is theoretical computer science including approximation and randomized algorithms and algorithmic game theory. I plan to continue my research, and further deepen my knowledge in these areas during my graduate career. Being born in an academic family has made my life intertwined with the academic world. This background together with the research experiences I gathered during my undergraduate studies motivates me to continue my studies through PhD in computer science and pursue a position in academia afterwards.

I find the graduate program at USC in harmony with my professional inclination towards Machine Learning and Data Mining. Being equally good in other areas of computer science, completing a masters degree here will enable me to keep a track of the important developments in those areas. My interactions with distinguished faculty members and fellow colleagues and exchange of ideas at an international platform will help me attain my maximum potential. I am completely aware of the dedication and hard work required in a graduate program.
During my first semester, I took the course Mathematical methods for Intelligent Systems that gave me a strong base for applied mathematics in the field of intelligent systems. Similarly, the research course Computational Neuroscience gave me an insight into applications of statistics, neural networks, and linear dynamical systems in a biological perspective. My keen interest towards the field of applied statistics, inspired me to take courses such as Machine learning and Neural Networks in the subsequent semester. In this context, I would like to give a brief outline of my master’s research projects, which are I found to be very exciting. The first project was to design a Handwritten Recognition system capable of classifying the digits using the Multilayer Perceptron architecture.
Concurrently, I also focused on taking rigorous classes in Mathematics and Statistics. After realizing the importance of empirical tools in economic research, I enrolled in the prestigious and challenging General Course program at the London School of Economics (LSE) where I took proof-based advanced Econometrics and Mathematical Statistics. Therefore, through the courses I took during my undergraduate years, I have established a strong analytical and quantitative background required to be a successful Ph.D. candidate in Management at IESE Business School. While learning the techniques, I also devoted my time undertaking various research projects in b... ... middle of paper ... ...ce will definitely provide a stimulating academic environment. Hence, I strongly believe that IESE will provide an ideal climate to facilitate my personal development as an academic researcher.
I believe Berkeley’s MS in Computer Science will help me expand both the breadth and depth of my knowledge in these areas and allow me to identify a specialization for a subsequent doctoral degree.

I would also relish the opportunity to contribute to the AI research project on ‘Child Question Answering Software’. Berkeley offers me the unique proposition of not only being able to gain expertise and depth of knowledge in my fields of interest, but the chance to interact with a highly motivated and talented cohort of students that would help me grow as an individual. Pursuant to my doctoral research, I envision myself as an academic preferably teaching in the field of natural language processing.
Mathematics as a subject fascinated me during my high school. This motivated me to pursue engineering for my undergraduate studies, I got admission in Vishwakarma Institute of Technology, Pune, which is ranked as one of the top engineering college under University of Pune. My interest in algorithms and programming languages inspired me to choose computer science as my major. This decision paved the way to get exposure in my interest areas and build on my technical and analytical skills. The guidance of an experienced faculty along with an exhaustive and rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum helped me to identify and work on my interest areas.
I always took immense pleasure in learning. The inquisitive nature of mine has constantly driven me to explore the events happening around. My undergraduate degree at Vellore Institute of Technology has given me substantial exposure to research work in the fields of Networks and Intelligent Systems. One year of professional experience at Samsung India R&D center has helped me develop an analytical mindset to work towards latest technology. I have thus developed an aspiration to work on frontiers of Computer Science research.
I feel that, my experience with relational database design, Data warehousing, OLAP, MDX queries, and related fields makes me a strong candidate for research in this lab. I observed that, significant amount of research is done on Database in the industry as well as in the academia. I want to pursue My PhD in Computer science and contribute to the community either by teaching or working in the industry. I believe that I have the determination and potential to thrive in this particular area. I feel that graduate study at The University of Texas at Arlington will be the most logical extension of my academic pursuits and a major step towards achieving my objectives.
My main objective of pursuing a Master’s Degree in Computer Science is to expand my horizon and knowledge in this domain and also to place myself at a premier position in the highly competitive IT industry. I am primarily interested in Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Data Management. Having done an internship for 6 months, gave me an exposure to a professional environment in which I could implement my knowledge. It also gave me a deeper understanding of numerous fundamental concepts of Computer Science and provided me with a strong groundwork for my further education. My academic curriculum in School was responsible for molding my interest in Computer Science.
