My introduction to the world of computers started with the basics of C and C++ during school days. I was then captivated by the act of executing programs and collecting the output. This made me pick Computer Science as my major in undergraduate course in Bachelor of Technology. In 2017, I had an idea (based on neural networks) which demanded a lot’s of research work. So I had to work with a group of four for the development of this idea.
As we are generating lot of data day by day there is a need of mining this data. Thus trying to be in pace with the generation we developed a software that can distinguish a user who logged into the mail is malicious or benign. Storing data of the login credentials of the user and trying to match them with the current login information. Location, IP address, session duration, et cetera taking all these attributes into consideration the user is distinguished. Having a good sum of interest over the the branch called Data Mining was the reason of we being strong despite undergoing many failures in the initial stages of our work. We could complete the work within a span of six months and with the help of a research grant from the father of one of my peer. By the time I complete the undergraduate course I then realized that there is still a requirement of something more to be discovered from the subject which can bolster my research career and ideas further. I intend to pursue my masters in computer science with a focus on Data Mining.
This is the major reason and these deeds propelled me to apply for the Masters program. Graduate studies at the recognized universities in the United States is a dream for an undergraduate and I wish to make this one a reality by securing an admission and working under your pedagogy. When I had to choose the righteous place for my graduate study, NU attracted my attention because of the outstanding reputation of its Computer Science program I have selected NU as the place for me to continue with my education because I found this program fulfilling my demands perfectly. I found that NU Computer Science Department faculty and the research being carried out in the field of Computer Science, especially in data science and machine learning is very impressive. As days are going by there is lot of data all around. Finding patterns and generating algorithms is keen in this present scenario of expanding ocean of data, so is data mining.
I feel that being allied with this group would put me in good path for my research career. I have also been impressed by the space available at your university for research and education like the varies laboratories. I feel that the wide range of well equipped research centres and opportunities at your university will definitely provide the propelling environment I wish for. Some must mention points like the varies universities laboratories will be very helpful for a aspiring STEM student.
The noteworthy list of faculty members like Dimitrios Theodoratos and Vincent Oria et cetera are doing considerable research in the areas of my interest such as data mining has impelled me on to become a part of your distinguished team and have all been the background reasons to my goal of pursuing my studies at your university. These are much superior to those available to a graduate student in India. One doesn’t only consider the academic aspects while choosing a place to study.
MA is home to some innovative Internet companies like Wayfair and Virtusa. Ma being one of the most diversified state in the USA implies its attraction. Also having some of the must see places like Martha Vineyard. It also hosts some of the most famous beaches in the country like Cape Cod. Taking all these factors into account, I feel that NU at Boston is the ideal place for my graduate studies and I am optimistic that I will make a good contribution to the ongoing research work at the University.In a world where technology is progressing every day, I need superior training above my undergraduate level to have a competitive advantage and help me keep in pace with the generation.
Masters will give me the depth of knowledge and exposure will also act as a catalyst in my career. The course structure, infrastructure and research at your university seem to be parallel to my interests. Given a chance, I am confident that I will exploit my potential to the fullest. I am confident that with my academic standards and strong motivation, positive attitude and with the aid of the university’s graduate program, I will be able to make a significant contribution to the research endeavours at the university. I take this opportunity to request for suitable financial assistance and assistant ship from the department and college.
Thank you for giving me an opportunity to demonstrate my views on the selection of Masters in Computer Science at Northeastern University at Boston.
