I am writing this statement of purpose to state my interest in applying for a Masters Degree Program (MEng.) in Electronic Systems Engineering for fall 2011. I have completed my bachelor’s degree (B.E) in Electrical Engineering in Dec 2009 from a university that has a history of almost 90 years of producing high quality graduates.

During undergraduate level I found Digital Signal Processing, Communication Systems, Instrumentation, Logic design & switching theory and Integrated Circuits very interesting. For this reason I have decided to choose masters Program in Electronic Systems Engineering. The main motivations for me to apply to this program are the co-operative nature of the degree so that I would be gaining professional experience during the time of study with an international exposure and the economical fee structure. The faculty which comprises of very highly qualified teachers convinced me that U of R is an optimum choice for me to pursue graduate studies in terms of cost of study and living, quality of education and international experience. Besides my academic qualifications, I firmly believe that my work experiences would also qualify me as a good candidate for this program.
