I always remember my father’s reiterating
words – “Knowledge possesses great power
to change the world” – have profoundly impacted my thinking and planning. I
see my life rising and coinciding with the modern Information sector. This
technological and computing revolution has drastically changed our lives and has
potentially redefined us, as a human. The idea that the entire planet is
connected together with huge information network across the continents
intrigued me. Even logging into Facebook with some new feature, invokes a sense
of marvel. These are innovations which gives ample opportunity for creativity
and logic. My sense of excitation exceeds bound when my code yields the desired
result. And it is this sense of programming, together with my deep eagerness
for various applications and technologies propels me to apply for MS in
Back in my school days, my analytical and
logical skills helped me to secure good marks in Mathematics and Applied
Science. Computer was always a luxury for me until our school was funded with a
computer lab; and thus fulfilled my urge of learning computer basics. In my 10th
grade, HTML language was first introduced. Seeking my passion, my professor
helped me to gain knowledge of basic languages. I developed a HTML-web page,
for which professor appreciated me. Being a Science topper in Secondary School
Certificate Examination, I chose science stream for Higher Secondary Education.
Here, I soon realized that problem-solving aspect through programming was what
I enjoyed the most. And thus, engineering was a natural career choice.
The main reason for choosing Information
Technology as my Bachelor’s specialization was the unquestionable dominance of computational
technology, its applications in the market and the chance of getting to know
how advanced programming languages. Throughout the course, I acquired an
overall perspective of scientific discipline, with a particular interest in
Database Management and .NET Technology. My keen interest in the laboratory
practices resulted into good grades in Multimedia Computing and Software
Development lab. While working on my final year project “Home Automation using
Android Phone”, I found the subjects like, Object Oriented Programming and
Mobile Computing along with Android OS very interesting. I also involved myself
in numerous projects, including prototypes of “Online Shoe Shopping”, “Theater
Management System”, which were developed using Asp.Net and SQL Server 2012.
Apart from the projects undertaken in college, my desire to gain exposure to
the software industry prompted me to take up a training program. In the summer
of 2013, I spent 3 months in Deven Infotech, Aurangabad, where I worked on PHP,
Beyond academics, my student life has been
replete with active participation in extra-curricular activities. At the school
level, I was among top 5 students and was very active and an all-rounder. I was
a regular participant in poster competitions, cultural activities and various
science exhibitions. My science project ‘Terrace Irrigation’ – aimed for
terrace gardening – secured first prize in science exhibition while pursuing my
9th grade. My focus on the extra-curricular front extended to the
college level as well. I shouldered positions of responsibility, like department
Ladies representative (from 2012 to 2014) and head chief for an technical event
‘FLASH’ which was conducted in our department. They inculcated leadership,
organizational and teamwork skills in me. Also, my undertakings with the Rotary
Club kept my sense of duty towards the society alive.
span of professional experience at “Connect Enterprises”, Aurangabad, has given
me a gist of corporate culture. Here, I started my career as ‘Marketing
Executive’, presenting and sourcing web based projects to clients. These
projects were on PHP, Asp.net, HTML, mobile application development and some
java related technologies such as a Servlet, JSP. Working on these projects
granted me a chance for practical experience in IT management field. I got a
fair idea about organization, its structure and projects which triggered me to
pursue masters in *******. The
curriculum at ************ will not only arm me with future technologies but
also quench my thirst for learning and practicing this fascinating technology.
Due to rapid advancements in technology, dynamic
markets and changing global business environment, the demand for professionals
who can manage, deliver and support information systems has augmented.
Organizations demand those IT professionals who can work closely and
effectively with their business partners to come up with innovative
opportunities to leverage Information Technology for competitive advantage.
This needs an appropriate balance of technical and business management.
Master’s degree in ********, will present me to gain a greater understanding of
strategic alignments between Information Technology and Business. My goal is to
be a “System Analyst” with a Ph.D., which will enable me to design new IT
solutions, modify existing systems and integrate new features or improvements,
all with the aim of improving business efficiency and productivity. For this
reason, I want to sharpen my business acumen and combine it with solid
technical knowledge. The exceptional framework of “***** University” along with
my dedication and hard work can surely take me miles ahead.
