Statement of Purpose NAME : D. AKSHAY KUMAR APPLIED FOR : MS Energy Management Graduate study is a significant milestone in the perpetual journey of education. With due reverence to the department and the university, I pen down the statement of purpose. This statement is an attempt to project my credentials as an aspiring researcher, my achievements as a Mechanical undergraduate and my ambitions. I chose Energy Management course for one simple reason – this is what I want to do. Born in a family related to Mechanical engineering, I was greatly influenced by my grandfather, an environmental enthusiast who is a mechanical engineer in coal mines and deeply associated with them in the past at london as a part of royal engineers association. Although I joined in a hardcore mechanical company immediately after my graduation, I believed I wasn’t doing justice to my education and felt that the assignment was lesser enthusiastic. At this juncture, I am not pleased with the work and believed that it is the time to proliferate my learning to procure more such that it can be put into something for the greater use in future. My desire to take up graduate study at your University is a part of my journey towards reaching my professional and personal goals that I have set for myself. My long-term career goal of carrying out independent research has prompted me to apply for Masters in Energy Management after doing an undergraduate course. Mechanical Engineering, as a field has always fascinated me and I have always been influenced by the current innovations in the field because it is challenging and has applications related to many fields. As I undertook the courses, projects and seminars of this program, I found myself increasingly interested in the application of computers to the fields of Design and manufacturing systems. I undertook various challenging projects and assignments in this field which have given me an insight into the aspects related to industries and also have helped me know the limitations of my knowledge. This was also the main motivating factor behind my opting for the graduate studies. I feel a Masters’ degree in Energy management will bring specialization and perfection to my gamut of expertise and knowledge and help me in fulfilling my dream. Throughout my ten years of school life and two years of high school study, I have maintained a consistent and good academic record. Coming to extra-curricular activities, beside participation, I secured nine awards of merit in different inter house competitions and secured four awards of merit at sports. I had an excellent and consistent career graph throughout my school life. I always stood among the meritorious students in my class. I secured 94% in my 10th grade and 77% in my12th grade. I pursued my bachelor of technology degree at M.V.S.R.Engineering college, one of the best academic institutions in Hyderabad. With good teaching and laboratory facilities, my college has laid primary emphasis to fundamentals both theoretical and practical on a wide range of subjects, which gave me a thorough understanding of essential features of the subjects and substantial motivations for research. Luckily, during my stay at the Engineering College, the things have shaped on the lines of my thinking. The college curriculum for this Engineering major is vast and touched several aspects of
Mechanical Engineering with special emphasis on Engineering Mechanics, Design of Machine Members, Thermal Engineering, Kinematics of machinery, Automation in Manufacturing, Robotics, CAD/CAM, Operations Research, Managerial economics & financial research and Industrial Management. The study at the college was rewarding and laid a solid foundation in me over the subject and enhanced my enthusiasm. My professors were highly appreciative of my performance particularly in the practical field as well as my communication skills in the classroom, participation at national level Technical Symposiums. I was the winner of the robotic event “wrestlemania” held during “Kriya 2014” at the Vasavi college of Engineering. To expand the boundaries of my knowledge, I actively participated in intercollegiate events like ‘Maglev’ at NIT, Warangal where I won the Certificate of Excellence. During my course of under graduation I had an opportunity of doing a mini project on spray painting robot at my college as a part of my curriculum. I had done my major project in the prestigious DEFENCE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT LABORATORY which is under the control of Government of India, a multi-disciplinary Missile System laboratory with thrust on design, development and flight evaluation of various types of Missile Systems for armed forces, which is situated in Hyderabad, for a period of two months on “VIBRATION CONTROL OF AEROSPACE STRUCTURES BY USING VISCO-ELASTIC LAYERS” under the guidance of DRDL scientist. To continue my yearning I’ve been employed as a mechanical engineer in the product design department at Mahivar Inc. Begumpet, Hyderabad since September 2016. My earnest desire to continue my further studies at your esteemed graduate school stems from the fact that it is one of the best universities in the Canada having a long time record of academic excellence and is supportive by expert faculty and very good research facilities which I , presume may shape my future and also to achieve my goals. I am convinced that my study at your department would be a meaningful and rewarding experience.. Your graduate program blends high quality course work and research facilities at the cutting edge of every sub-field. These factors distinguish your university from the others. In all, it is a comprehensive university that furnishes an education that will serve me well in my career and prepare me for a lifetime of learning. I believe the programs offered will help me acquire the versatility needed to reach my full potential as an Energy Management engineer At this moment I am confident of my abilities, competence and dedication in reaching my goal. I am fully convinced that my potential will be groomed to a well-designed capacity to produce research of high quality under the expert guidance of distinguished faculty at your university. I hope you find my purpose definitive and I fit into the image of a promising student. I look forward to prove myself. D. AKSHAY KUMAR.
