I can still remember my childhood days when my
relatives always used to ask me “What do you want to do when you grow up?”. I
would just say “MS in USA” though I did not even know what it actually meant.
But, as the years passed by, my academic background, areas of interest and the
efforts I made towards research during my undergraduate program have stimulated
me to pursue Graduate Studies in Computer Science.I am really impressed by the
pace at which the field of computers is evolving and playing a major role in
everyone’s life.I am looking forward to devoting my career to do research on
modern real-time environments and to excel in those fields.
inspiration when it comes to hard work and success is my father.When I was 6, he
met with an accident and had to undergo a surgery in his thigh.He had to be
bedridden and eventually, he lost his journalist job.After 3 years, my father
stood back on his feet and started his own restaurant struggling every day and
he has been doing great since then.He works for more than 12 hours a day.This
is the level of confidence and inspiration I received from my father.Being the
only child of my parents I always dreamt of making them proud by achieving my
lifetime goals.I massively adore my parents for their hard work and success. Many
of my family members are from Computer Science background and I have watched
them grow to great heights.
Computers subject was introduced to us right from
schooling days where we were taught basics of C and a bit of coding.A
comprehensive background in the field of Computer Science began at Keshav
Memorial Institute of Technology where I got exposed to various core subjects like
C, Java, Data Structures, Design and Analysis of Algorithms ,DBMS etc.When it
came to Computer Science faculty ours was the best in our city.During my time at undergraduation,I
have worked on two projects.One was on an Android application named “Profile
Swapper” which allows users to generate a private key through which they can
switch audio profiles of Target Android Device who have this application
installed.My second and main project was “An Improved FP-Tree based
Association Rule Mining Technique.” It overcomes the drawback of candidate set
generation problem of the traditional FP-Growth Algorithm and proposes a new
Mining Technique. I got very good remarks for my projects. After my
undergraduation, my immediate plan was to pursue Master’s degree but, I felt it
would be better to develop some professional skills for my upcoming
endeavors.So, I joined Virtusa(Multi-national Company).
studies, I play basketball and cricket. Basketball made me a better person
physically and mentally.It is all about scoring baskets by understanding the
defender’s tactics and defend the basket by showcasing the teamwork.
am a Hortonworks Certified Developer working at Virtusa as an Associate
Engineer in Enterprise Information Management.My work primarily consists of
Hadoop and Java.My responsibilities in my first project were to interact with
the clients and to perform data analysis on huge batches of data using Hadoop.Currently,
I am into my second project where my team is working for one of the leading
banks in England (Lloyd’s Banking Group).The whole aim is to draw insights by
analyzing huge amounts of data on Hadoop environment.My responsibilities
include loading real-time and batch data into Hadoop, building data pipelines
using Kafka, processing of data using Spark and designing and testing of
datasets.Working at Virtusa really helped me to enhance my professional skills
and I was able to interact with a lot of good associates. I got good remarks
for being a strong work ethic and collaboration skills.
two years of job experience has provided me a good understanding of project
handling, I am really passionate about acquiring in-depth knowledge of computer
science.So, I decided to study further.As the United States is a center of
excellence for computer science, I wish to earn my Master’s degree from a
reputed university in the United States.
I have heard
a lot about the excellent faculty of Computer Science of University of North
Texas-Denton and the future of students who have graduated from here from one
of my friends.I have gone through the program details and the subjects in the
university website and I am totally convinced that University of North
Texas-Denton will be the best destination for me and will augment my ability in
the research field.I really wish to have the opportunity to work with the
erudite professors of your university and enhance my qualities as a
researcher.I am sure that with the knowledge that I gain from your university, I
can fulfill my life goal of investing that knowledge into a start-up in my
country.With all these goals in mind, I honestly feel that I am ready to pursue
Master’s degree from University of North Texas-Denton.I look forward to joining
as a Graduate student at your university.
for your time.
