STATEMENT OF PURPOSESANJAY DAMERAAt the age of 10, my sister brought a computer as she was taking hercoaching on animation course. Whenever I would get time, I would spend it onthe computer.
On my birthday, my father asked me to select a bicycle as my giftfrom the various types on my sister’s computer. I was amazed that instead ofgoing to a showroom, the choice was available right here at my home. To this,my sister explained that this was possible through the internet. She furtherexplained that the said company had put up all their product information ontheir website. I was so fascinated by this, and since then, began to made meexplore the world of computers.My interest in Computer Science was kindled by seeing the firstandroid device launched by Google in 2013.
The operating system and the androidapplications grasped my attention when I first got hands on experience withthat device. I was eager to know and learn how those applications aredeveloped. Later, I learnt that these can be developed through programminglanguages. This led me to opt for Engineering in Information Technology for myundergraduate course from Kakatiya Institute of Technology and Science.
These 4years of my college helped me in learning programming languages such as C,JAVA. I also learnt many concepts such as Data Structures , ArtificialIntelligence and Machine Learning amongothers. I spent most my time in the laboratory, learning programming languages,designing and analysis of algorithms.During my summer vacation in 2016, I interned at Indus BusinessSystems Limited, hyderabad on basic network concepts. This helped me understandthe way networking works and the basics of networking concepts. As a part of mythird semester’s mini project, I developed a android application named ‘StudentReminder Application’. Most of our college students are usingmy application for managing their attendance and library activities. TheInternational Conference on Inventive Computing Systems and Applications(ICICSA) accepted my application for publishing my paper, Student ReminderApplication.
On seeing the usage of my application, I felt very happy and Ihave not stopped at this point. As part of my final semester’s project, Iextended my mini project by adding few more modules with voice assistantfeature using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning concepts. Besides my academics, during my second year, I joined the studentactivity centre in our college and organised many events like ‘Blood donationcamps’. I along with 4 of my friends, made a team and visited rural areas forteaching them importance of education and usage of modern technology such asinternet and online banking. We visited them on weekends and taught basic mathlike algebra, geometry and arithmetic to the 5th and 6thgrade students.
They scored first class marks in Mathematics which made meproud. I also organized a technical quiz representing my department in ourcollege technical fest. We were the runners in the inter-department footballmatch, where I was the captain of our team.I aspire to study the Master of Science in Computer Science at theUniversity of Texas Arlington because it is amongst the most highly ratedpostgraduate programmes offered in the United States of America. I amWell-prepared academically and personally, and eager to study new coursesoffered by the University. Some of these are Artificial Intelligence, MachineLearning which is the future of technology. The excellent research facilities andthe strong research – centric curriculumseem to be the perfect choice for me to further my academic and professionalgoals.In selecting the University of Texas Arlington I have been influenced by the way yourresearch program addresses latest technologies, Artificial Intelligence and MachineLearning.
I am also excited to interact with Professors Chris Conly and VamsiKrishna GopiKrishna whose work is closest to what I want topursue for the original research component of the MS degree.. I believe that Iwill be able to contribute to and learn from the academically challengingenvironment at the University of Texas Arlington .Immediately after joining the program, I am to work towards my MS degreeand concentrate on my majors. Thereafter, I would like to see myself as a part of software industry Working forthe development by using new technologies in this sector. For the next coupleof years, I would like to work at organisations developing applications using newtechnologies and gain experience. My ultimate goal in the long run is to start an organizationand to develop ideas using latest technologies in the industry that solves the problems and which are usefulto the society.
i aim to grow as a technically sound and to supervise a team of developers andengineers.The essence of University education lies in the synergeticrelationship between the department and its students. I think that graduatestudy at your University would help me best with my academic pursuits and is amajor step towards achieving my objectives.
I would be grateful if I am giventhe opportunity to pursue my graduate study at your world-renowned institution.
