My childhood interest onautomobiles has driven me towards mechanical engineering. Studying mechanicalengineering for four years, I further want to continue my studies in a fieldwhich will relate the mechanical knowledge with the management concepts andthis lead me in choosing the fields of industrial engineering and management,industrial design engineeringAfter completion of mysecondary education with 9.5 grade points and intermediate education with90.
8%, I joined bachelor of technology in mechanical engineering in GITAM whichis deemed to be university and is one of the popular institutions of ourcountry. In my four years of bachelor study in GITAM, I got opportunity toparticipate in various workshops and to work in close with many professionals.In first year, engineeringdrawing and autocad were taught to us which were very interesting. Later in theholidays I finished my AutoCAD Professional Certification exam which fetched mea place in our college design club where I worked closely with Autodesk India. Courseslike manufacturing technology, material science and thermodynamics wereintroduced in second year which were helpful in gaining practical knowledge. Labsrelated to manufacturing technology were fun to do and gave me more about theprocess of manufacturing.During my second year, I wasa part of our college SAE club and organised a workshop named vehicle dynamicsof atv.
With the help of knowledge gained in the workshop, I joined our collegeBAJA team “Phoenix” in which I was involved in design and analysis of an all terrainvehicle.In third year, subjectslike instrumentation and control engineering, automobile engineering, theory ofmachines, machine design, metrology, finite element methods etc were imparted whichgave me more detailed visualisation of applications. For internship, I attendedbharat earth movers limited(rail coach division) where I learned completelyabout the structure of organisation for about 30 days.
During these 30 days, I visiteddepartments like research and development,product design, tool engineering, material preparation, machine shop, furnishingdepartment and many other from which I came to know about the complete processbehind production process. Later I attended combat vehicle research and developmentestablishment, one of the research establishments under defence research anddevelopment organisation, where I learned about various battle tanks which wereused by the army and their latest developments.In fourth year, subjectslike operations research and production planning and control gave me an insightof how management concepts are involved in the industries and then I startedlooking for courses which relate management and mechanical engineering. My finalyear project was to study the improvement of mechanical and thermal propertiesof aluminium nano composites in various concentrations. In this my role was tolead a team of 5 members and we prepared the samples in various concentrationsand performed the required tests.I found that the qualityof education in European countries in good and after extensive research, I foundSweden to be the ideal place for masters. Sweden being a home for many advancedcompanies like volvo, Scania, koenigsegg etc.
is a place to improve myself withthe latest developments and the upgrading technology. Also it houses many worldrenowned universities providing high quality of education.I wish to acquire as muchindustry relevant knowledge and apply my skills in mechanical engineering aspossible through this course.
This will help me in finding internships in thefield of my interest. After completing Masters, I aspire to possess technicalskills and practical knowledge that were the part of the program. With thebenefit of hindsight, graduate studies at European Universities is crucial stepin fashioning my career in the proper way.
