Technology phones, the only way we could talk

Technology
has forever changed the world we live in. Asking someone “where are you” is a
recent thing. Before we had mobile phones, the only way we could talk to people
is if we knew where they were. Technology helps us connect and communicate. We
have come a long way from the time of news being reported a few times a day
through newspaper and television broadcasts. Now, we have always-on, constant
sharing of information. Our lives are becoming more connected, and it’s a
phenomenon enabled and driven by technology. Technology is growing
exponentially and I want to be a part of this tremendously changing world, but
for now I want to strengthen my skills by specializing in Computer Science.

          During my Under Graduate, I gained
expertise in C, C++ and Object-oriented programming concepts to an extent where
I could create my own algorithms to find my way out of a problem definition,
this is the part I enjoyed the most as I had to look into various facets and
delve into various perceptions to come up with an optimal solution.  Besides that, I have deep knowledge on
Operating Systems, Software Engineering, Networks and Database Management
Systems. These skills have invigorated my foundation and only affirmed my
aspiration to be among top programmers. In my final year at school we developed
an Email system, which is a web application like regular google mail or hot
mail using JAVA and MySQL. In this Email System user can view the message sent
to him. If he wants he can download the attachments and forward the same
messages to others. Security steps are taken to help users to save account
details from hackers and unauthorized users. This project made my skills more
strong on network programming and java programming and provided me with an
opportunity to work in collaboration as a team by helping each other in
resolving technical ambiguities completing the project in a timely fashion.

 

         As a part of NSS (National Service
Scheme) our team organized blood donation campaigns, campaigns to spread literacy
among unprivileged children and also awareness programs for improvement of the
status of women. This program creates awareness among women that they too
contribute to economic and social well-being of the community and there is no
occupation which is not open to them provided they acquire the requisite
skills.

            After completing my Under Graduate studies, I
joined Infosys as a Systems Engineer Trainee. To start a career with Infosys
was a great privilege to me as it offers the best training to their employees. The
American Society for Training and Development has rated Indian IT major Infosys
Technologies Ltd as the worlds best in employee training and development. I have
received training on JAVA and Angular JS technologies for five months. On
completing my training with 75% , I was assigned my first project on Angular JS
.From these projects I have obtained a practical understanding of complex data
and its execution for the benefit of business insights as well as tangible
resource for business decision-making. I have grown to realize that engineers
and IT professionals must work hard to acquire business domain skills. Hence I
look for a course that will provide me with a strong grounding.

 

           In order to expand my horizons, a
Maters degree from University of Arlington in Computer Science appears to be the
most logical progression as it would be a perfect platform to launch my career.

I hope that the Admission committee shares my enthusiasm and commitment to
surpass the expectations set forth for an incoming graduate student and
accordingly offers admission into Summer 2018 incoming class. I would also love
to contribute by being a part of the activities of the student body at
university of Arlington.
