I am applying to the MS degree in computer science.
My passion in the field of computer science dates back to the days when my father bought me my first computer while I was in 5th grade. From then on it was no looking back. I scored very high in computer science during my pre-university schooling that got me admission to one of Karnataka’s most reputed colleges. I continued my superior academic performance with a distinction in every semester.
My decision to apply for a graduate education is based on my goal to work in the industry or academia and through this be able to contribute to society. Ten years from now, I envisage myself as a full-fledged research professional capable of founding an organization that offers software services. A masters degree is an important first step in achieving this objective.
My goal is to serve society by using computers as a platform. In India all official work from school to small scale offices is mostly carried out on paper because of a deficit of software and data warehouses. My intent is to start an organization which develops software as per the customer’s requirements and help them to maintain their data on a data warehouse with suitable architectures. To achieve this, I seek a quality graduate education, with rigorous course work and the opportunity for research in web technologies and database management systems.
During my undergraduate course, I was a part of a team that started online registrations for the first time in the college festival using a website hosted on a cloud server. Inter-collegiate festival registrations went up dramatically as a result and students were able to register for events at their will and from the comfort of their homes, avoiding the cumbersome and tiring process of registering on-spot on the day of the festival. Subsequently we published the project as a technical paper at an IEEE sponsored National Conference and won the “Best Paper Published” award. Currently am working with my fellow juniors to develop on the model we designed during the previous year by implementing new and improved features.
I was a part of designing and development of software used for an event called E-Treasure Hunt hosted locally, which also had a provision for live scoreboard updates by automatically retrieving data from database. The game was a replication of treasure hunt in the virtual internet world and could be hosted on a virtual server....
