I can, I will & I must.
These words have been key point behind my learning. It has helped me to frame my targets & reach the goals of my carrier, which I strongly believe in materials science. The modern world is loaded with ballistic variations in gadgets & devices, with miniaturization being the ace of the cards. With the technology getting bigger the demand for Nano devices has been larger and Materials Sciences & engineering has a lion’s share in accomplishing it. This extrudes me to think beyond boundaries with rationality together with addition of creativeness and innovation upon it. The need for thinking out of the box is of paramount importance in order to forge the current growing demands. To accomplish this I want to pursue my summer internship in Materials Science & be a part of the research which will be a forefront of such changes.
I had always had an analytical and logical approach towards learning from childhood days. During my schooling, I not only concentrated to Science and Mathematics but also homogenized my efforts on all subjects, there by performing well in all the subjects. Cumulative effort of all these assisted me in cracking AIEEE 2011, landing me in one of the premier institutes of the country, National Institute Of technology Rourkela, India.
The courses in my professional major(metallurgy and materials engineering) not only focused on metallurgy of metals but also on Science and technology of materials sciences. Subjects like thermodynamics, phase transformation, casting, physics of materials gave a better insight about the course. Till the completion of my 4th semester I had taken two open electives(OE) fundamentals of tissue Engineering and Chemistry of Nanomaterials, only to get closer to nanomaterials and its applications in life sciences.
Physics of materials launched into me the underlying principles, properties and applications of semi conductors, super conductors and magnetic substances. Concepts of band gap, hysteresis loop, electron theory, distributions of Maxwell and Boltzmann etc were learnt. All these gave me a clear picture of behavior properties of materials. While the open elective dealt mostly about nanomaterials especially Carbon Nano tubes(CNT), synthesis and its application. I the unusual deviation of nanomaterials from that of the bulk materials was extensively studied. I also studied the surface Plasmons (localized and propagating). In this OE I also learnt about the underlying principles of working of various laboratory machines like XRD, SEM and TEM, which fascinated and caught my interest the most. While fundamentals of tissue Engineering opened up a new dimension of integrating nanometials with life sciences. To quench my curiosity I read two research papers on Nanomaterials for drug delivery system, COSDAF & dept. of Physics and Materials Sciences and use on CNT in nerve tissue regeneration & stimulation, AGH university of science & technology, this caught my...
