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 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 of Electronics Engineering and Computer Technology (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 come a long way in broadening my horizons. After learning the basics 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 I have performed in, I have learned that your outlook and
efforts matter almost as much as the talent you possess. My efficiency to work in a team
was clearly revealed from the team presentation on “Lie Detectors”. I have given
seminars on SPECT, Filters used in X-rays, Anaesthesia Machine, Telemedicine and
Telemetry Equipments, EEG etc during my undergraduate degree. This gave me an
excellent opportunity to interact with my professors and fellow students. I have worked
as a trainee in “Draeger Medical Company” India, Mumbai branch for 22 weeks as a part
of my course which gave me an invaluable experience and exposure to the real industrial
world. I have worked on troubleshooting and preventive maintenance of the equipments
like ventilators, Anaesthesia Machine, Patient Monitoring system etc. Presently I am
working on ‘Rehabilitation Stimulator’ project for my final semester.

I believe that physical and mental fitness goes hand in hand. While I am committed to
academic excellence, my interests are not restricted because a well rounded personality is
pleasing and admirable. I have been ‘Best Girl Athlete’ for consecutive 2 years during
my school days and won many district level medals. I had joined Guide group which
gave me thrilling experiences like rock climbing, trekking and using things from
environment as emergency First-Aid. I have performed in a group dance and a stage act
on the Annual Day of my present institute. I have also secured third place in the intra-
college group dance competition. I have been a part of the girls’ cricket team that has
secured 1st position from past 2 years.

I believe that learning is a life-long process. Undertaking MSc will enhance my academic
career and put me on a path to fulfill my goals. I am well aware that studying in UCL
demands hard work, sincerity and punctuality for which I am physically and mentally
equipped and ready for. The main reason for studying in UCL is that the standard of
education is very high and very well established particularly in the field of Biomedical
Engineering.

I am stubborn to pursue my MSc in U.K. as it will provide me with best education and
professional experience. My interest is mainly in Medical Imaging as I always had a
personal liking towards the related subjects in my undergraduate course. Also the
growing advancement and demand of Medical Imaging have encouraged me to pursue
this course. I intend to gain firsthand knowledge and experience under the guidance of
your excellent and well-known faculty. This, I am sure will prepare me to face the
challenges thrown up by the biomedical industry, which in India is growing at a
tremendous rate and offers me an excellent career prospect.

Finally, I would like to say that with my desire to learn at every stage of life and good
qualifications I would be able to face any difficulties and challenges in any part of the
world. The veneer of civilization is upheld by refining one’s mind through high
qualifications and dedication towards work. This is why I wish to complete my education
in the best possible way. And I look forward to the day when I come to your office and
say Hello! to you.
