Please write a one-page essay describing your academic and career goals. Address the following in your essay:
In which specific area do you wish to study?
Why should you be admitted into the program?
Since my middle school i was fascinated by the laws of physics and its strange behaviour at quantum level compared to macroscopic objects.Quantum physics has always captured my imagination ,by its workings in strange and unimaginable ways.I was very much interested in physics and looked forward to study in more detail.I also wanted to solve practical problems concerning electronics.Since,practically all electronics were based on semiconductor devices,which work on a very small length scales i choose electronics and communication engineering as my undergraduate major.My aim in pursuing graduate studies is not just to study engineering,but do something fundamenatal,study objects and their behaviour at small scales.Solid state electronics is the perfect choice for me,since it includes all the three areas i am searching for in a graduate program(i.e Optoelectronics,Photo Voltaics,Semiconductor Electronics).
My undergraduate subjects included a wide area of topics including communications,antennas,digital logic and computer architecture.I did my industrial training at Philips DMC(Design and Manufacturing Unit) at Pune.There i worked at a manufacuring plant which produced Medical Imaging equipment.There i experienced first hand the workflow and the processes involved in production.This gave me a great exposure and an idea of how a device is conceptualised and produced at a large scale.In addition to my academics,i completed online courses related to nanoelectronics and photonics.I completed a nanotechnology course from Rice University,and Fundamentals of...
