STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
“Until you spread your wings, you have no idea how far you can go” Boys Scouts of America
As a young child, I was attracted to sci-fi films because of exploration of the planets. Anyone, who has ever seen the television series “Star Wars,” will never forget the imposing space ships connecting planets, robot troops; dangerous battles in the space, and of course, two human-like robots. In the television series “Star Trek,” I really took part in adventures of the Enterprise spaceship to mysterious planets at the speed of light. These films gave me a question: “Can we create a machine having intelligence as human?” The question is still haunting me, and becoming an computer engineering
To indulge in natural science in my childhood, I became excellent in physics, chemistry, and especially in math. I had won three times in math competition, two in high school, and one in Tarrant County College. It seemed only logical that I pursue a career in computer engineering. In the realm of engineering, I have developed a special interest in the field of artificial intelligence and had taken a programming course. I was a technical assistant at Department of Automation and Robotics of Institute of Applied Mechanics in my country, Vietnam, I learned about its many practical applications, especially in relation to automation and robotic. It also helps me understand more about my major. Another particular interest of mine is theoretical physics. I am attracted by philosophy of physics, theoretical physics, Eastern philosophy ideologies about structure of the universe, similarities between meditator and scientists. Later I would like to work in the area of research and development for industry. It is in research and development that I will make the greatest contribution, utilizing my theoretical background and creativity as a scientist.
