Statement of Purpose It was an introductory class on physical chemistry and our chemistry teacher was teaching us the allotropes of carbon. At the end of the class, he asked us, “What do you think makes a small piece of diamond more precious than tons of charcoal, although they are made up of same carbon atoms? Is it its appearance? No. It’s the pressure that the carbon endured for thousands of years to become a diamond”. “A diamond is just a piece of charcoal that handled the pressure well”, he quoted. “No pressure, No diamond. Pressure shapes a diamond, in the same way, persistence in challenging situation shapes a man”- I still remember all these words from my high school chemistry teacher which made a huge impact in me and made me realize that perseverance is the key to reach the sky.…show more content…
Although metallurgy and materials science studies dates back many centuries, its scope and popularity remain very little and novel in India. In a country where millions of mechanical, electrical and computer engineers are bred, very few materials engineers are produced. During my freshmen and sophomore year, I had courses in electronics and mechanical technology which blended and integrated mechanical engineering and electrical & electronics engineering with materials science. I was fascinated by the way Materials Engineering was breaching the wall between different fields of studies and promoting interdisciplinary study and research
