Scientific methodology, analysis and reasoning has had a significant impact in shaping my approach and developing a different learning aptitude towards academics; this soon flourished into a more specific interest in science. I got interested in electronics during my high school years itself when I was introduced to the topic of Circuit Theory in Physics. Hence to pursue undergraduate studies in a reputed college of engineering of India with electronics as my major became an obvious choice for me. Determined to go after the same, I prepared myself for the fierce competition. Two years of focused preparation fetched me a position in the top 0.3% among 1 million potential candidates in the national level engineering entrance examination- All …show more content…
I got this opportunity at the Summer School at IIT Gandhinagar (IIT-Gn), where I practically came up with a hardware prototype for the SCR firing circuit and implemented the single phase and three phase controlled and uncontrolled rectifiers. During this time at IIT-Gn, the area of electronic circuit design and analysis fascinated me as the simulations and practical implementation of the circuits went side by side. This experience at IIT-Gn also made me realize that practical implementation is always more challenging and a better learning experience than theoretical knowledge. This Summer School experience kindled an urge to do research in the area of circuit design and so I decided to take up another project in the same field at my home institution during my regular academic curriculum, where I developed an Analog circuit for calculating the air gap torque of a three phase induction motor. The two research projects in this area gave me a significant insight into the varied fields where electronics can be applied. It came to my notice at this instant that Electronic Design and VLSI/Automation are interdependent and closely related areas. Thus I decided to take up research task in the field of Automation and Verification of Hardware Circuits. Getting admit from the prestigious Institute of Electronic Design and Automation (EDA) at Technical University of Munich (TUM) made this desire come true. Grant of the esteemed DAAD-WISE 2013 Scholarship facilitated the
Some love Mozart. Others prefer The Beatles, Johnny Cash, or Eminem. For me, however, the most beautiful sound in the world is a basketball dribbling on an old, wooden gym floor.
I graduated from San Jose State University with a business administration degree with an emphasis in management. My undergrad program focuses on developing the skills and techniques to analyze problems and create solutions in all aspects in the work force.
My greatest talent that I have discovered at this point is my natural ability in math based subjects. From a young age, I have always been someone who has had a natural inclination towards mathematics. It has always been my best subject, and it has also lead to me wanting to pursue a career in mechanical engineering. I believe this talent can also assist with me making a decent level of income in college as a tutor, especially following my calculus teacher’s recommendation of doing it. In general, math has been prevalent in all aspects of my life.
As I went through the assigned reading, I was scared to find an incredible amount of previously unknown information. I felt like I should have a firm grasp on the history of computer science. Then I took a tangent path into electrical and mechanical engineering as I learned about transistors and capacitors.
I have always wondered how the world works and who thinks of ways to do something easier. Mechanical engineering is a very hands on field of designing to building to installing. Mechanical engineers do it all and then some. The possibilities are endless when it comes to mechanical engineering. I can work in an office all day or on a boat 3000 miles away or I can be in Oregon one day and Florida the next. What interests me the most are all the possibilities that can come from engineering? Engineers have a unique job. I would like to find out what a normal day would consist of. The first place I looked for information about my career was the MS Choices website. Next, I searched the Occupational Outlook Handbook website. Finally, I conducted a job shadow with Richard Schmidt. By using MS Choices, The Occupational Outlook
Abstract--- This paper aims at developing a complex verification environment for the results character conversion (RCC) module of a DTMF Receiver using system Verilog language. There exist methods to verify the functionality of the RCC block, but a thorough verification environment is needed to test the block under several unexpected conditions. Such a thorough and complex approach is applied to the design under test (DUT) in this paper. This approach proved beneficial and
When designing FPAA designer must consider different approaches available and select the one most suitable for the application. There are numerous issues to be looked in to before choosing the architecture of FPAA since FPAA unlike FPGA is far more sensitive to device mismatch, supply voltage fluctuation, interference and secondary effects etc. This section describes few important design issues that a designer comes across while attempting to design FPAA.
These circuits are mainly used for solving a wide variety of complex engineering problems, like investigation of stresses in aircraft, ships and large engineering structures. They can also be used to simulate and set up models of complex installations and study the effect of various operational factors on the complex installations.
The design of an integrated circuit involves a development plan, where its functional characteristics and performance will define the elaboration of the logic circuit diagram. Once the diagram is finished, a series of simulations are executed to test the operation of the designed circuit; if no issues are encountered, a massive production plan is implemented.
In high school, intensely intrigued by the mechanisms and experiments in physics, I regularly took part in the State Science Exhibitions demonstrating models from the solar oven to spring-mass systems. My passion for Physics and Mathematics spurred me to win awards at State Level Competitions. It further led me to choose a major in Science during Secondary School and my undergraduate major in Engineering Physics at the NIT Calicut. My duly qualified academic performance enabled me to receive the Post-Matric Scholarship for Scheduled Caste Students for the full duration of the program (2010-14). The methodical approach I towards learning helped me to graduate with a degree in first class.
Discoveries and inventions are not born from nothingness. If necessity were the mother of invention, an apt father would be a combination of curiosity, scientific temperament and research skills. With the firm belief that I possess these skills, I aspire to fulfill my dream of pursuing advanced research in an application-oriented field, by obtaining my Masters degree in Electrical engineering. As a stepping-stone toward this dream, I am pursuing my Bachelor of Technology degree in Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering from SRM University, ranked first among many private institutions in India. This has laid a strong foundation for my graduate studies.
I find resonance in the words of Nikola Tesla, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration”. Change is what defined my childhood. My father is with the Indian Army and we moved to a new city every two years. In India, where language, food and culture change every hundred miles, I completed my education in several schools and under diverse settings. My curiosity to work in situations where 'nobody knows anything ', and build up everything from scratch led me to pursue Engineering. Since automation, digitization and convergence of technology are today central to all streams of engineering, I decided to opt for Electronics and Communications Engineering for under graduation. This stream enabled me to apply my knowledge to build different applications in any field, and the courses served in refining my understanding about the subject making me keenly appreciative of the subtleties in this field.
In today’s world, there is a continuous need for automatic appliances with the increase in standard of living, there is a sense of urgency for developing circuits that would ease the complexity of life.
