Circuits that occupy greater areas can now be put into a small space few millimeters across. This has opened up a big opportunity to do things that were not possible before. I am fascinated by the advancement in the world of computers and the dramatic proliferation of tools that can be used to design circuits. Pursuing research in this area would prove to be personally and professionally fulfilling, as it fits in perfectly with my career objective.
In my undergraduate studies, I have benefited from various subjects like electronic devices, communication systems, control systems, digital signal processing,microprocessor systems, digital systems, linear integrated circuits, computer architecture and microcontrollers, Introduction to VLSI design , and othersub-areas of electrical and computer engineering. The lab classes have provided me an understanding of the concepts to a certain extent. I would further like to improve and add to my knowledge.
In the final year of my undergraduate study I teamed up with 2 people and devised a project based on image processing “EARLY DETECTION OF EXUDATES IN FUNDUS IMAGE OF DIABETIC RETINOPATHY” which gave me an insight to various image processing techniques. We implemented this as a real time project by getting eye samples from the hospitals. Diabetic Retinopathy is the cause for blindness in human beings. This project involved two steps: exudates detection and extraction. The original fundus image is subjected to contrast limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization.
Then Exudates detection is done using binary imaging & enhanced MDD(Minimum Distance Discriminant) classifiers and the methods are compared. We implemented the algorithm using Matlab and it was tested with Standard Diabetic Retinopathy Database (diaretdb0). Working on a challenging project like this gave me profundity in the subject. While pursuing my undergraduate studies I was a member of IETE(The institution of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers) student’s forum. Our college selected 25 members from our college to be a part of this and I was one among them.
I underwent a lot of training and implemented lot of mini projects. Here I designed a low cost fire alarm using Transistor BC177 as the fire sensor. I designed the circuit as that when there is a increase in temperature the leakage current of the transistor also increase. I was quite successful in implementing it. I also presented a paper on “MICROCONTROLLER & IT’S APPLICATIONS” in my college symposium based on the concepts I learnt from this forum. In this presenatation I explained how Microcontroller is extensively used for Communication purpose and Instrumentation.
I believe that one of my strength lies in the way I communicate and deal with people. This quality helped me in organizing the college symposium “SAANKETHIKA 09” which was a huge success. I actively participated in my department association “ZAVANA” where I helped in conducting a lot of seminars and debates. I feel this quality of mine will be of great use if I get selected in your esteemed university. I firmly believe that there is a lot of scope for electronics based applications in a developing nation like India. My long-term goal involves in setting up an entrepreneurial establishment at home.
For this purpose, I would like to sharpen my skills in a knowledge hub like the USA. Before pursuing my MS I’m planning to undergo training in Electrical designs to further enhance my knowledge in the Electrical field. I strongly feel that this training will help me a lot if I get a chance to do MS in Elecrical Engineering. After an MS degree in Electrical Engineering, I intend to follow this with a Ph. D. As I’m interested in doing lot of research activities based on electrical circuits in the future, I feel that thorough knowledge in electrical concepts will help me in achieving my goal.
My choice of your university is backed by the prestige it carries. It would also help me achieve my long-term intellectual aspirations and goals. This apostle of learning is where I aspire to be to acquire training and knowledge to fulfill my ambitions, and at the same time I am confident of contributing meaningfully to the programs offered at your institution. It is with this in mind that I am looking forward to a long and rewarding relationship with you. I hope my credentials merit consideration for admission to your MS program in Electrical engineering at your esteemed university. xxx
