Sample Statement of Purpose for MS Mechanical Engineering
I wish to pursue a career in research that involves creative thinking, challenging problems and is also relevant to the industry in particular and society in general. My keen interest in Manufacturing and Design field accompanied by good analytical skills, problem solving capabilities and visualization which are the heart and core of research have prompted me to go in for graduate studies.
As a child, I was always intrigued by the working of complex mechanisms and equipment. I used to spend a lot of time trying to explore and figure out their principle. In school I found myself drawn towards subjects that required in-depth analysis and logical thinking. I was awed by their simple fundamentals which form the governing basis for a lot of machinery. In order to understand these concepts I took part in science fairs and practical workshops. This exposure taught me the importance of simple and practical design. To understand the principles and practical aspects of designing a product I decided to pursue my career in engineering. Indian Institutes of Technology, which rank among the premier engineering institutes in Asia, stood out as the obvious choice. My diligent and methodical work helped me secure admission to mechanical engineering department in IIT- Madras with the distinction of being in the top 1% of all candidates.
In the three years of my undergraduate study, I have been exposed to diverse topics ranging from thermal sciences, fluid mechanics to computer aided manufacturing and design. As per the requirements of the institute I was also exposed to the needs and aspirations of the industry through a series of well orchestrated lectures by eminent people who are leaders in their field. These courses have helped me build a strong foundation in Mechanical Engineering and laid the necessary groundwork for pursuing graduate studies. In my sophomore year I credited Dynamics of Machinery and was...
