Over the years, I have grown particularly fascinated with the abstract side of electronics, including the creation of programming languages and applications, especially for mobile devices, and the creation of artificial intelligence. I see the potential for computer programs and artificial intelligence to help humanity solve many of its most complex problems in entertainment, communication, and everyday life, and I believe a degree in Computer Science would help me become a part of this
When starting a new career in computer industry there are two paths: college and occupational certificates. College is a lot of time and money to dedicate for most people, especially those with low-income or those who had poor grades in high school. Certificate programs are ultimately faster and cheaper; but lack the well-rounded education college provides. This leaves certificate holders with little choice but to seek out more training if they wish to advance in their careers. Research shows the demands of college is well worth the sacrifice, because college graduates earn higher salaries and see long-term career advancement. This makes it clear that the easy road, although tempting, is not the best investment. When starting a career in I.T.
The gravity of my decision to become the first person in my family to apply to college was not lost on me. One prominent fact, I faced was my lack of preparation for college level work. My education prepared me for tradesmen level work, not higher education. The basic skills of effective study habits, note taking abilities, and test taking strategies were not developed by the time I completed high school. Yet, I held a deep belief that I could do anything if given the opportunity. That was one skill set that my parents helped foster within me as a young person. Consequently, I was prepared to face and solve the forthcoming challenges. During my time at Purdue University, I developed a learning system to aid me to be successful. This system has continually adapted and strengthened throughout my career.
Computer science has changed the way we live our lives in many ways. From layman to professionals, computer science has touched everybody’s lives in some way or the other. Computer engineers strive to make our life faster, easier and more organized. The words of Steve Ballmer aptly sum up the vital importance of the sector today - ‘The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.’ I feel privileged to be a part of this community that plays a major role in advancements of human lives. From being a jargon of the professionals in the past, computers and technology have now become the buzzword of every field – whether it is entertainment, business, production or medicine, computers are everywhere, making people’s jobs much easier and the end results of their efforts more reliable. In India particularly, the landscape of development in the last three decades has definitely been dominated by the IT sector. The sector has generated employment, created a new cadre of professionals, and placed India firmly on the world map. I believe that aspiring professionals from this sector will continue to have a definite role to play in India’s immediate future.
When exploring potential undergraduate programs worldwide, Carnegie Mellon clearly stood out among the rest.

Both the “College of Engineering” and “School of Computer Science” are world-renowned as a result of Carnegie Mellon’s mission to create a transformative educational experience for its students by equipping them with deep disciplinary knowledge. Driven by my aspiration to create and contribute to future technological advances that propel society forward, I have applied to Carnegie Mellon’s College of Engineering for both its “Electrical Engineering” and “Mechanical Engineering” programs, along with the School of Computer Science for its “Computer Science” program.
Computers are a major part of our lives in society today. They are used to do almost everything from typing essays to reading books to watching movies these days. Technology makes our lives so much easier by providing us a way to communicate with people anywhere in the world, allowing us to send emails faster than ever before, watch movies online and to store documents on storage media such as hard drives and flash drives. But many people do not know what goes on behind the scene to manufacture this useful technology. My goal is to go behind the scenes and understand how this process works. Due to this reason, I want to become a computer engineer to make computers better and faster for future generations.
Every human has a purpose and every purpose has an ordained path and beginning. My interest in computer science came to light as soon as I began to walk, talk and think independently. I always had the innate passion and desire to scrutinize electronic devices even though I was still a child with little understanding. Being a little kid, my access to computers were constrained, but nonetheless, I made the best out of every opportunity I had with them. Time flew by like a dove as I suddenly began to grow in wisdom, and also began to understand what life is all about. Immediately I graduated from high school, I applied for a 3-month full-time computer training before making any preparation for college. Unbeknownst to me, I was actually on a direct path to discovering my true potential in computer science and engineering. Financially and physically, it was a burden commuting from my home down to the computer training center, but the intrinsic passion and desire to get my hands on electronic devices and to learn more about how computers really work made me overlook the struggle. I did not think twice while applying for Computer Engineering in the university, as I already had a clear glimpse of my future
Man, has forever tried to push the limits of his capabilities through technology and innovation. It is this struggle that has brought us to this era where a technological revolution continuously tries to reduce the struggles and complexity is his life or the life of other men. In many ways, I too have benefitted from the labors of other man. But now wish to play my part in the above transformation. Even though my work may be inconsequential in nature if it can help at least one other person other than myself I would be immensely delighted. To achieve the above objective I, choose Computer Science as my major as an undergraduate student at Florida Institute of Technology. Throughout my career as an undergraduate student I too have continuously challenged what I could do in my field and now. And now as I have ended my undergraduate studies, it is my central goal to continue my education in a more challenging and competitive environment. It is to serve the above purpose that I wish to apply to the Computer Science department at prestigious university to pursue a Master’s degree in Computer Science.
After going over all of the options that have been placed before me, I have finally decided to pursue a career in computers. I have been raised in the era when computers were making their first appearance in people’s homes. When I was a very small child, I started exploring the
It is universally agreeable that with the advent of Computer technology, every ambitious and enthusiastic individual is really obsessed with the idea of doing computer science at graduate level because it seems to have created a zeal and enthusiasm in the hearts of youth, particularly those who aspire to be marked as high achievers. I, for one, seem to have been enchanted by these computer applications as they have made the world smaller, speaking in terms of globalization. I have no hesitation to add that core computerization alone is the suitable answer to all the areas unexploited and to the areas waiting for development. It has always been a fascination for me about how computers work, how these applications are designed and what can be the newer ways to explore the world of computers to make our world better. This interest became a passion for me when I was exposed to computer science basics, during my middle school. Pursuing computer science engineering at undergraduate level, further propelled my passion for computer science along with providing me a deeper insight and in-depth understanding of the subject. After completing my under graduation in Computer Science, I am willing to expedite my research interest and a masters degree seemed the most appropriate choice for realizing my aspirations.
I am applying for Michigan University’s PhD program in political science, with a focus on international relations and formal models. One of my research interests lies in the puzzle of war, namely why war occurs and reoccurs despite of its inefficiency. “War occurs because there is nothing to prevent it… In the absence of a supreme authority there is then the constant possibility that conflicts will be settled by force.” Representing the view of many political scientists who study the origins of war, Kenneth Waltz 's Man, the State, and War impugns the occurrence of war to the nature of interstate anarchy. It was not until I took a PhD-level seminar of formal models of international relations with Professor Andrew Kydd at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and immersed myself with works of Fearon, Powell, and Lake, among many others, did I come to realize that the anarchy explanation for war, though intuitive and compelling to some extend, is largely insufficient. Why does the lack of central authority prevent states from bargaining and reaching a settlement that would avoid the costly war? Using game theory and formal models, rationalism argues that private information and the incentives to misrepresent, commitment problem, issue indivisibilities and so on are responsible for the breakdown of bargaining and the occurrence of war.
I was introduced to computers in my middle school where I had a chance to learn the programming language ‘LOGO’ using which I wrote small programs to move the turtle on the screen in different directions. It was an amazing experience to see that what a few lines of code can do.Then i have decided to study about computers. That motivated me to eventually pursue the I hold Bachelors of Technology degree in Information Technology from CMR Institute of Technology, affiliated to the Jawaharlal Nehru technological University. Taking courses like Advanced Data Structures and Algorithms, Unix and Shell programming,Operating systems, Object oriented programming, Software project management gave me a solid technical foundation in Computer Science.
A master’s degree in Public health is an educational core which allows an individual to expertise and use the art and science of preventing diseases, prolonging lives as well as promoting society health. This is mainly done through organized efforts and informed society choices, communities, organizations and individuals. I am currently interested in pursuing a master’s degree in this course because am so much concerned with health threats that are based on the population health analysis. I also find this career path appropriate because I will be able to deal with several health dimensions which encompass a state of comprehensive mental, physical and social well-being and not merely disease absence. This career is also fully packed with advancements and a great earning potential. In addition, I will be able to help several lives in the society that need services regarding this sector as I sharpen my leadership skills further and widen my scope of knowledge and skills in medical field as well as the managerial field.
