My career aspirations
are not childhood dreams but rather a consistent observation of knowledge and
learning. It was all about finding my path and the journey started from my
innate interest to explore nuances of the industry. Technology has surely
changed our lives for the better. In just a fairly short period of time, it has
already significantly changed the way we look at certain things and this has
intrigued me and led me to believe there is much more to create, explore and discover
in this field. Thus, I undertook my undergraduate degree from the reputed VidyaVardhaka
College of Engineering affiliated to Visveswaraya Technological University.
This seems to be my most logical extension in my academic career.

My undergraduate study
has provided me with a comprehensive and wide exposure to different courses like
Digital Signal Processing, Microcontrollers, Microprocessors, Logic Design,
Embedded Systems, VLSI and Linear Integrated Circuits that has enthralled me
and have helped me enhance my knowledge. I have always adopted a rigorous
approach to attain an in-depth understanding of the subject as this has shown
in my academic records.

 To keep pace with fast growing technology, I
had attended workshop on ‘Cloud Computing’ organized by IFC3 India &
Neuromancers IIT Bhuvaneswar. An Industrial visit to “Master Control Facility”
located in Hassan, where I was exposed to the operation of monitoring and
controlling geo-stationary satellites launched by ISRO. Also, my natural
ability to organize things makes me get involved in various academic and extra
curriculum activities. My experience in contributing towards organizing NEN E
WEEK celebrated by E-Cell Aspera has been motivating. Thus, I have also been
part of organizing team for the National Level Technical Fest 2016 at VVCE.

Thinking from different
perspective had always been my strongest aspects that enabled me to learn and
progress in this domain. Pursuing my interest, I along with my team members
developed project “Remote Operated Spy Robot”. This project involved a camera
that captures information surrounding the robot. In this, we deployed
Microcontroller (AT89C51) and RF module (433MHz). My role in the project was to
design the circuit and implement on circuit boards. Moreover, we simulated and
implemented the code in Keil software. Finally, I got an opportunity to present
this project in VIVACIOUS, Technical Fest at VVCE where I won first prize. This
boosted my confidence level and strengthened my interest in research.
Furthermore, enhancing my knowledge, during my third year, I developed a
project “Gesture Controlled Robot” that involves controlling and monitoring the
use of robotic vehicle with hand based movements using RF module and ARDUINO which is even
more versatile. Experiences through these projects have helped me understand
the basic concepts of designing, I learned extensively about sensors and
various platforms. This has helped me apply my acquired knowledge for practical
purpose.

Apart from this, I also
underwent training at Prasar Bharati (Doordarshan)-the oldest and the largest
public broadcaster, to gain first-hand experience in GPS and GSM technologies.
The scale at which the various baseband systems employed in the transmission
and reception captivated me. I also gained a whole new perspective about
Antenna and Wave propagation system. This driven me to choose my final year
project “Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) Reduction in OFDM Signal” where
along with my aspirants we formulated a model for reducing the Peak to Average
Power Ratio in OFDM Signals using Clipping technique and measuring the
performance of BER using different modulation methods. Here, we implemented the
system using MATLAB. We successfully reduced PAPR, so that this signal can be
used for LTE application. It is a practical experience, applying the concepts
learnt all through in making more interesting. I also presented a paper on same
topic in “4th National Conference on Emerging Trends in Electronics and
Communication” held at BGS Institute of Technology, Mandya.

To further enhance my
knowledge, I am currently undergoing a course in Embedded System and Design. As
part of this training, I am exposed to various problems in embedded system
design. The course is designed to cover all the aspects of programming and
designing like C, Advanced C and Data Structure, C++, MATLAB & Simulink,
ARM7 Architecture and Programming and Linux System Programming. I believe this
course will give me an opportunity to intensify my knowledge in Embedded
Systems.

I feel that
undergraduate study is only a prelude ground of preparation for acquiring
knowledge of such a vast subject. As constant development of path-breaking
technologies lead to erosion of older versions, I like to be in tandem with the
latest technology. Graduate study is what would render me to build on this
foundation through focused study. At this point, I pursuing my graduate studies
in Electrical Engineering is the right thing to do, as it would put my
abilities and interest together and give me all-round exposure to this field.

I, therefore, want to
acquaint myself with various technologies and research and widen my knowledge
base by pursuing MS in your esteemed university. The Electrical Engineering
program offered at your University with special emphasis on Embedded Systems is
ideal match for my career goals. VLSI and Signal processing being my other
areas of interest. To sum up, I have skills and aspiration and potential to
prove an asset to your university, and now seek the right platform to move
towards my goals. I would be grateful if I am given the privilege to pursue my Master’s
Degree in your prestigious university. I look forward to a long and fruitful
association with your university.
