Withthis letter, I would like to express my interest in studying at University of Windsor as a MSC student.Canadais known for is its education system. The rapidincrease in available information has made studying information technology (IT)in Canada a good choice for students interested in the technicalitiesassociated with storing, retrieving, and transmitting data.
The best ITprograms offered by Canadian universities prepare students for a growing numberof IT jobs that help organizations increase productivity and maximize the useof technology. Canada is at the forefront of newtechnology and innovations. Students who study in Canada can take advantage thecountry’s impressive technology and research resources. Canadaoffers an ideal location and much to learn, which is why it attracts a lot ofstudents worldwide. I believethat studying here will be a good opportunity to get in touch with the Canadianculture and education system.
University of Windsoris among the leading Canadian scientific and research institution and is one ofthe best university in the country as evident by its high internationaluniversity ranking. The excellent and culminating environment with highlyqualified faculty makes Universityof Windsor my first choice in Canada.Iam delightful to find your Master program of Computer Science. I am sure it would strongly enhance myknowledge and help me in my professional career. I especially appreciate thewide range of offered modules and the freedom in choosing my desiredspecialization in your Information Technology program because I feel that thescheme of studies in Pakistani universities is too rigid. There is noequivalent at the universities in my home country.
Icompleted my Bachelor’s Degree in Software Engineering from COMSATS Instituteof Information Technology Islamabad which is one of the highly reputededucational institutes in Pakistan and the #1 University in the countryaccording to Times Higher Education ranking 2016¹ – I am looking to further my education in this field or ones relatedto it.I havealways been passionate about using different technologies since a young age. Ieagerly jump at opportunities to try out and understand the inner workings ofinnovative products like smart watches, Google Glass even though such productsare very rare in Pakistan and not easily available.
The user and their respective doctor will seethe daily, weekly progress and visualize their progress through charts and alsokeep track the medical history of the user. Apart from these features, the Web and androidapplication also had many features like New fitness trends, various exercisemethods and add user individualhealth goals and reminders.In my undergraduate study I had taken upcourses on Data Structure, Computer Graphics, Professional Ethics in IT,Object Oriented Programming, Software design and development, Software Quality,Software Project Management, Requirement Engineering, Design and Analysis ofAlgorithms, Computer Organization and Assembly Language, Database Systems andWeb Technologies. This program has converted my initial zeal into deep fascinationfor the subject and motivated me to pursue graduate study. As well as the coursework and practicalexperience, I try to follow the technological innovations and new designtechniques by reading technical periodicals and attending various seminars &conferences. My area of interest involves SoftwareEngineering methodologies and principles. This interest developed as I read up on failed software projectssuch as the Therac-25²incidents of 1985-87 and found out the devastating effects of malfunctioningsoftware.
I would like to study and contribute towards improving softwarephilosophies as to ensure the creation of quality and highly functionalsoftware products.After finishing my Bachelorsin Software Engineering in COMSATS Institute of Information TechnologyIslamabad, I took up a job as a Software Engineer at Monotrix Technologies. Iwas formally introduced to challenging task of software design and development.An intensive two months of initial training at Monotrix Technologies providedme with a solid foundation in vendor technologies like Microsoft .
Net, Oracleand Crystal Reports, software engineering principles (SDLC), business processmanagement and software development methodologies like waterfall model, scrumand agile process. I regarded each topic in the broadrange of material covered in training as intrinsically interesting as well asessential to my work in software development.Working at Monotrix Technologies Software House has given mea chance to apply my academic skills to apply them to solve real worldproblems. My major responsibilities were to develop the Innovative and uniqueWeb and Android Applications, and to lead the team to help them to providesolutions.
I also have the additional responsibility to manage the resourcesand meet the timelines. I invested myself in learningadvanced concepts like software design patterns, architectural patterns,programming languages like C#.Net, and java. I successfully completedchallenging assignments and provided immense business value by providing welldesigned solutions.
In my graduate program my goal is to expand my mentalhorizons, detailed understanding of latest tools and technologies adopted byengineering, with the time. I alsowant to learn technical, managerial as well as behavioral aspects of the fieldto work in higher positions. I strongly feel thatmaster’s program will inculcate a strong quality assurance and testingcomponent in my knowledge, so as to raise the level of excellence in my work.Iwould very much like to pursue my Master’s Degree in Information Technology at University of Windsor. This would give me a chance to enrich myknowledge about Computer Sciences in the inspiring environment of one of themost prominent Canadian universities. I am confident that my experience inCanada would be extremely invigorating and valuable for both my studies andoverall general development, as well as contribute further to University of Windsor illustrious reputation.
