STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
I believe that without high qualifications and insightful knowledge, it is very difficult to compete with this fast moving world. If I do not advance, I will fall back. If I walk away from my challenge today, my self-esteem will forever be scarred, and if I cease to grow even a little, I will w ill become smaller. I reject the stationary position because it is always the beginning of the end. This philosophy has played an important role in the shaping of my objectives and framing of my plans for the future. The only way I can stand out in a crowd is to get the best knowledge and best education from the best school in a well-advanced country. Therefore I am very keen to get the opportunity to pursue my higher education at a highly reputed university like yours. I am interested in doing MSc in Medical Image Computing. This will fulfill my urge to learn modern technology related to the field and add to my approach of handling difficult things in life. I completed my schooling from “Dadar Parsee Youths Assembly High School” which is an English medium school, well known in our area, scoring 80.53% in Secondary School Certificate (10th) Examination in the year 2004. I was rewarded for securing distinction in Mathematics, Science, Social Science and French language. Because of my merit, I got admission in G.N. Khalsa College in science stream, which is well known in Mumbai for its education and extra-curricular activities. There I got basic knowledge of subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. I secured 86.33% in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics in my higher secondary certificate examination (10+2 pattern), 2006. That opened up doors for me to secure admission in the four year degree program of Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) in Biomedical Engineering at the renowned Watumull Institute Institute of Electronic Electronicss Engineering Engineering and Computer Computer Technology Technology (WIEECT), (WIEECT), which is affiliated to the University of Mumbai. . I had chosen the field of Biomedical Engineering because I was fascinated by the unique combination of Biology, Engineering and Life Sciences. This marked the beginning of one of the most important phases of learning in my life. This course took me a step closer towards fulfillment of my goal of delving deeper into the world of Biomedical. During my seven semesters so far at WIEECT, I have have come come a long long way way in broa broade deni ning ng my hori horizon zons. s. Afte Afterr lear learni ning ng the the basi basics cs of engineering in the first two semesters (including computer languages like C and C++), I was able to build a solid foundation of Biomedical Equipment in the next four semesters. Other than core biomedical subjects like Biomedical Instrumentation, Medical Imaging, Electronic circuit and design, Micro-Processors and Micro-controllers, I have also studied subjects such as Principles of communication and Communication skills which helped me gain a firsthand understanding of managing various activities and resources in the biomedical industries. I have always held the opinion that if you want to accomplish a task you should be sincerely dedicated towards it and I follow this in everything I do. The many projects I have worked on and activities activities I have performed performed in, I have learned learned that your outlook outlook and efforts matter almost as much as the talent you possess.
