STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

I am of the opinion that a career involving research will offer the opportunity of working at the cutting edge of technology, with unparalleled intellectual challenges and creative satisfaction. I would like to see myself embarking on a mission that would lead to the design and development of extremely mesmerizing and highly reliable electronic devices of the contemporary world. My goal is to be a Professor/Scientist in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering.

Life has taught me to stand up and face every difficulty with all the courage I possess. And it is this courage that has shown me the path to success and my mistakes whenever I have failed. I have chosen electronics and communication engineering as my field of study not just to assimilate and reproduce knowledge but to help me realize my eternal dream of making all our lives comfortable and self assuring.

In my opinion, a good school plays a very important role in nurturing a student to their true potential. I have studied in the best High School in my city and my under graduate studies have been no different. My choice, the *****, to pursue my under graduation in Electronics and Communication Engineering was obvious to me. NITK is consistently ranked among the top ten best engineering colleges in India with students admitted to the college through the highly competitive All India Engineering Entrance Exam (AIEEE) which has about 150,000 applicants across the country every year. Among the qualified students, only the top 1% manages to make it to the NITK in which the ECE Department is the most reputed. Hence, at the Institute we interact and live with the best minds in the country.

In my view, no subject can be understood deeply without a systematic theoretical & practical curriculum, distinguished faculty and extreme dedication towards learning. The core courses of Analog Electronics, Microprocessors, Digital Systems Design, Digital Signal Processing, VLSI, Analog & Digital Communication and Antennas have given me a good understanding of the theoretical knowledge. Where as the corresponding laboratories allowed me to implement my knowledge practically.

At NITK, practical and industrial exposure is highly emphasized upon. I have undergone an intense 4 week industrial training at the Bharath Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL is the largest Telecom company in India) during my 4th semester. The training helped me understand the advanced routing techniques and instruments/hardware used in transmitting and routing the

wired and wireless based telephone calls. During my summer vacation, I underwent 4 weeks of training at Osmania University, Hyderabad in Embedded Systems. It is here that I had the opportunity to undertake my first research project on 16-Bit General Purpose Microprocessor based on the Load Store Architecture with the help of ****, Professor of CSE Department, JNTU Hyderabad. IEEE has been a significant source of knowledge for my projects and keeps me abreast of the latest developments in research in electronics. My association with The IEEE NITK Chapter as a member has helped me understand the dependence of diverse engineering fields on electronics better.

Apart from the industrial training, I have had the opportunity of working on several projects, both individually and in teams, at NITK. During the 3rd semester I designed a Reaction Time Indicator (RTI) using ICs and LEDs. The RTI is capable of indicating the time taken by a person to react to an event by up to 1/1000th of a second. During the same period as a team we developed an 8-Bit General Purpose Accumulator based Microprocessor. I have designed and implemented an 8-Bit Microcontroller using the Xilinx software tool and SPARTAN-2E FPGA kit during my 5th semester and also coded and implemented in Assembly Level the game Hangman on the ARM7TDMI RISC Microprocessor. The course on DSP and VLSI during the 6th semester inspired me to take up projects in them as well. In DSP, I implemented Zeros of Z-Transform (ZZT) Decomposition of Speech for Source-Tract Separation in C and MATLAB. The project was based on a PhD thesis submitted by four Belgian students. In VLSI, I designed and implemented a 32X16 Content Addressable Memory (CAM) on magic and ngspice software tools using the 250 nanometer technology. Presently, I am under taking my final year dissertation under Dr. Shankarananda Bhat, Head of ECE Department at NITK on <Yet to be assigned>.

The myriad projects and trainings have helped me adapt myself to group tasks and individual tasks with ease. And most importantly, they have helped me determine my domain of interest. I find Computer Architecture and Microprocessors the most interesting and exciting fields due to their promising benefits. I have decided to pursue my masters in DSP based Microprocessors and Advanced Computer Architecture.

Apart from Academics, I indulge myself in several recreational and co-curricular activities. I am an executive member of The NITK Student Union and The Captain of The NITK Volley Ball team. I am a member of the National Service Scheme (NSS) and donate blood on a regular basis. During my High School days, I was the junior sports Captain and I played for the National South Zone Under-19 Volley Ball team. I am also an accomplished artist.

In my opinion, the Universities in The States are among the best in the world. It is their emphasis on research that appeals me the most. However, selecting a University to pursue masters in them is not easy as there are several renowned Universities. Hence, I have been cautious and systematic in selecting the University of my Choice. I have made my selection after a comprehensive understanding of the courses offered, distinctions of the faculty and the areas of interest of the Electrical Engineering department of various Universities as displayed in their websites and on the basis of the faculty recommendations at NITK.

After an exhaustive inquiry, I have come to the conclusion that The Electrical Engineering department at <University> is where I wish to study. After going through The Electrical Engineering department website I realized that your department fulfils all my needs and requirements. Not only does the department specialize in my areas of interest but also has the equipment in the laboratories that I would like to work on. <Write some stuff specific to the department, labs, etc.>. The faculties of the department have a strong educational background and have acclaimed critical accolades. On the basis of my previous interaction with the faculties of various Universities in India, I would rate yours among the finest in the world. I am aware of the high standards of academic excellence and path-breaking research that <University> has set. It will be a privilege and a milestone in my academic career to be part of such a prestigious institution.

If admitted to your university, I will use the opportunity to design and develop DSP Microprocessors to the best of my ability. I would make use of the equipment provided at the laboratories and research centers extensively. I am confident that I will be able to live up to your benchmarks and make a significant contribution to the betterment of society on the whole. I hope that you will take a favorable decision towards my application and I look forward to joining your department for an exciting academic life.
