Statement of Purpose for MS in Computer Science Engineering

Monica Nishtala
Statement of Purpose
The constant increasing applications of computers in technological development demand
more efficient networking. Coming from a background of Computer Science Engineering, I
have developed a fascination to probe into the arena of Networking in general and Computer
Networks in particular which posses a challenging task in interconnecting PCs and Laptops.
This cultivated my interest to take Computer Science Engineering as my major in my
graduate studies.
I always put my endeavors and all out efforts to excel in every walk of my life. A good career
in computer science and engineering can only be built above the firm foundation of a good
education. Apart from the impressive infrastructure and research facilities offered at
University of Texas, the courses like Database systems, Data Mining, Software Engineering
and Operating Systems really interested me because I believe that I can specialize in
databases and data mining concepts with the knowledge that I can gain from these courses.
Above all, it would be a blessing to be able to learn under the guidance of the professors at
University of Texas. I am excited about entering into this next phase of my life and it is my
hope and belief that I would be able to make a positive contribution to the University.
There is a saying, which says, The only thing Permanent in life is Change. This perfectly
holds true to the world of Computer Science Engineering where novel ideas are not a
novelty. It is this novelty that entices me to this field and gives me a deep sense of
professional pride. In this context, I would like to pursue my graduation in Computer Science
Engineering, which not only supplements the knowledge that I possess but also provides a
strong platform for my future career aspirations and goals.
I have always believed that one should never give up the habit of asking questions and this
habit has been an important facet of my creativity. I seek to invent new ideas by applying
the basic principles of an existing theory in uncommon ways.
However, I found that I have no uncertainty in proceeding along a path that I have been
planning over the last 5 years. I have originated from a family where the highest priority was
always given to good education. Blessed with schooling from one of the premier institutions
of India, the Satya Sai Vidya Vihar in Visakhapatnam, I was strongly motivated to pass my X
class exams with over 79% marks.
After successful completion of my school studies, I got admitted to Narayana IIT Academy ,
which is one of the most reputed Colleges in Andhra Pradesh, to which State I belong .I
obtained over 86.2 % marks in the Intermediate ( plus Two ) exams. Later I joined the GITAM
Institute of Technology, affiliated to the GITAM University in Visakhapatnam, which is a top
class University in India in general and my native state Andhra Pradesh in particular. I took
Computer Science Engineering as my major in the undergraduate program. During the
course of the study I was exposed to various subjects like C, Computer Networks, Java and
Data Structures and gained a lot of expertise in them, etc.

The inter connection, management and maintenance of networks helped me to get


acquainted with the subject of Networking at high levels. Having acquired reasonable
knowledge after completing a course in Database 2 certification course, I am passionately
eager to learn the subject in depth; I was fascinated to explore advanced knowledge in this
Cyber World. My Cumulative Grade Point Average up to the VI Semester (III year II Semester)
is 8.81 out of 10.

I worked in a group project titled User Support Portal for the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant
under the guidance of Sri T.V.Kameswara Rao. This project centers on the creation of a portal
which performs an array of tasks useful both for the management and also the users (or
customers) of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant which is a prime steel producing companies in
India. For the back-end of the project, my team used Oracle 10g and for designing the frontend, we used JSP (Java Server Pages) and concepts of Java to execute the code.

My prodigious appetite for knowledge started from the moment, I was trained to write the
series of English alphabets on the sands of the grounds of my kindergarten school. This
thrust spurred me to work assiduously till this part of my career and this will perpetually
continue to stir me in achieving greater goals. I am fully aware of the fact that I have miles
to go in this long distance race for acquiring higher knowledge. Although I believe that there
is no substitute for hard work and strong working knowledge. Training in a reputed university
like yours will give a big boost to my aspirations and Academic Pursuits
In addition to my regular studies at various levels from Primary till now; I am taking regular
classes in Kuchipudi dancing, one of the oldest and most traditional forms of dancing in my
Country. Especially during my School days at Satya Sai Vidya Vihar, I actively associated
myself with various Community Service activities aimed at the amelioration of the
oppressed, suppressed, depressed and the under - privileged sections of people , which was
the main motto of my Alma Mater. During my Under Graduate studies, I allocate good time
for the same purpose being a member of the National Service Scheme.
Coming from a family where everyone has excelled in academic achievements, I have
developed a keen desire to pursue my graduate studies and research in Computer Science
Engineering in a University of Excellence, which will provide me an opportunity to work with
most modern and sophisticated equipment and intellectual environment by which I would be
able to realize my dreams of exploring and contributing new vistas in the chosen field. Your
institute, which is reputed to possess the above, besides having a host of eminent professors
on its faculty, gives me wonderful opportunity to hone my skills and acquire knowledge.
I believe that Accomplishments lie within the reach of those who reach beyond
themselves. I am confident of making my own humble contribution in enhancing the image
and reputation of your Esteemed University in the years to come. Financial assistance from
your University will give me a tremendous morale boost in this long pursuit to achieve
excellence. I eagerly look forward to be a part of your Academic Community.
