A rapid development in science and technology have thrown number of challenges which made me chose engineering. Mechanical engineering is the brain, heart and soul of the industry in the globalized world. Mechanical engineers are becoming more important in the modern world and future to come in the following years. In the next two decades mechanical engineers will develop cleaner, safer and more efficient machines. So, the understanding of new mechanical technologies require more holistic and international view of the industry. I am keen to pursue my graduate education in University of Ontario Institute of Technology because global exposure to the mechanical industry is very essential for growth in this highly competitive and advanced world. My insatiable thirst for knowledge and my ambition made me proceed further and do graduation in mechanical engineering.
Right from my school days I had a strong inclination to be a mechanical engineer. My interest in this field rose when my father took me to a textile industry where they had an automatic weaving and printing machines. I always wondered how those machines worked and what the mechanism behind that machine was. My father was the first person who introduced me to lathe machines, CNC and VMC machines. My quest for knowledge ended when I got admission at Indus University, one of the reputed institutions in the state. I took Mechanical engineering as my major as it offered me innumerable choices of specialization. During these 4 years I learnt subjects like Heat and Mass Transfer, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Theory of Machines, Machine Designs, Thermodynamics, Strength of Materials and Production Management. These subjects helped me in better understanding of the various engineering aspects. I have also done an internship during my undergraduate which has helped me to understand the concepts and aspects on practical basis. I have learnt the principles of mechanical engineering those are applicable to most machines, tools and processes, cutting parameters and production schedule. My immense effort in making various design and manufacturing procedures short by introducing various scheduling cards under the guidance of the chief engineer was well appreciated by the company.
My baccalaureate education has provided a thorough exposure to the various specialties available in Mechanical Engineering. I have also generated skills like problem solving ability, working in team and to work with subordinates. Such qualities has helped me to work better during my participation at the National level Solar Car Championship called the ‘Electric Solar Vehicle Championship’ along with 24 other members in the team. My role in the team was that of a fabricator, which enriched my practical knowledge and imbibed many qualities which is necessary for an engineer. We were ranked 33 out of 120 different universities. I have also served as an Academic Head under IMEA (Indus Mechanical Engineering Association) which is run by the students, for the students. IMEA organizes various technical and non-technical events in the mechanical department. I feel that extra-curricular activities are as important as studies in estimating a person’s overall capacity. My constant dedication towards study and practical aspects I will be able to hold a good academic record with a CGPA of 8.67 on 10 point scale.
