I and technologically advanced institution, me where intelligence integrates

I am Thomas Paul, an engineering
graduate with profound interest in telecommunication sector. This passion along
with my dream to study in an internationally reputed and technologically advanced
institution, me where intelligence integrates with practicality encouraged to
choose the Master of Engineering course with a major in Telecommunications
Engineering offered by the University Of Wollongong, Australia.

I hail from Kalady, a census town in
Kerala, India. I completed my schooling at Viswajyothi
CMI Public School, a reputed institution run by CMI fathers, located at
Angamaly, Kerala. In the year 2011, I completed my 10th grade with a
CGPA of 9.1 out of 10 and following this, I passed my 12th grade in
2013 from the same institution which follows the Central Board of Secondary
Education (CBSE board) curriculum with 76%.In the same year(2013), I joined for
Bachelor of Technology in Electronics and Communication Engineering ,an
undergraduate degree program ,offered by Federal Institute of Science And
Technology (FISAT),affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi university ,Kerala. I completed
my bachelor’s with first class in 2017 with a CGPA of 6.90.

Apart from academic activities, I was
also an enthusiastic participant in scholastic exams, science exhibitions and
events both at school and state level right from my school days and also have
won prizes in many. It was these exhibitions and fares that introduced the
exciting world of electronics to me .I was 
also able to do a project based on computer programming in my 12th
grade which introduced me to programming languages like c, c++ .

During the four years of my
undergraduate degree, I was introduced to the concepts of telecommunication
which interested and captivated me. Along with the curriculum based studies I
was also an active participant in tech fests, cultural fests both at intra and
inter level. The passion to share my knowledge and help others seeking the same
made me an enthusiastic volunteer in IEEE.I went on to become the Student Link
Representative and later the MD Chairperson of my Student Branch of FISAT.As an
IEEE member, I was able to participate in workshops, seminars and webinars on
latest technologies and innovations in my area of study. I was a Firefox
Student Ambassador(FSA)  and also an
active member of Electronic and Communication Heuristics Organization (ECHO) of
the college. I was able to organize and co-organize  various technical and managerial events
during this tenure which not only  increased my technical knowledge but also
helped me to improve my interpersonal skills, molding me to the professional I
am today.

I was able to do a major project in my
final year based on ORB feature extraction and Support Vector Machine (SVM)
Algorithm called Machine Perception along with my team mates, during which I
was able to work with arduino and python programming. In addition to this, I
have also taken various seminars and talks on latest technologies as part of
micro activities in my college. Moreover I have also participated in hackathons
and other coding competitions. Along with this, during my college days I was
introduced to tools like MATLAB.

The fervor to know more about
technologies in the telecommunication sector has encouraged me to choose a
masters course in the same field. I chose Australia, as the country is much
more technologically advanced than my home country India, and the education
system is up-to-date. Australians are always known to be friendly and
welcoming. In addition, the weather is much more pleasant compared to other
developed countries. Even though similar courses are available in India, an
Australian education would allow me to study in a multi linguistic society,
where technology integrates with cultural diversity. Also the facilities and
faculty are top notch and world class.

The Master of Engineering course at
University Of Wollongong will not only help me to increase my knowledge in
telecommunication sector but also provides ample opportunities to gain proper
industry training and hands on experience. Moreover the university is a five
star rated one, ranked 232 in the world by QS world rankings. A master’s degree
from this reputed institution will elevate my job profile in an international

Tuition fee payable for the entire
course is $62,985.60. A loan for 30,00,000 INR has been sanctioned by Union
Bank of India for my study purposes .In addition, I am sponsored by my father,
who has an annual income of 19,00,000 INR .

The course is taught over four semesters
with 8 subjects in the 1st year, among those 4 are compulsory and other
4 are electives. In the 2nd year, there are 3 compulsory subjects,
an advanced project and 3 elective subjects. Assessments are done in the form
of assignments, examinations, tutorials, lab tests and quizzes.

This two year course will help me to
increase my knowledge in subjects like 
network engineering ,communication systems, microcontrollers and its
applications and so on. Along with this, it will also introduce me to new
fields like wireless communication and optical communication technologies,
technologies with a huge scope for development. In addition, the advanced
project, which is done as part of the curriculum, will provide me an upper hand
in securing my dream job, that of a telecom engineer back in India.

In today’s era of technological
advancement, the future of telecommunication industry is promising as the
demand for fast and secure communication is ever increasing. Currently India is
the worlds 2nd largest telecom market and has 3rd highest
number of internet users in the world but still lacks skilled engineers in this
field and the demand will surpassingly increase in the future as the industry
is evolving and its influence is being felt in other sectors too. Main telecom
players in India are private companies like Reliance Jio , Airtel, Idea,
Vodafone along with government owned BSNL. Upon successful completion of the
course, I will be joining Vodafone as a telecommunication project engineer back
in India.

In conclusion, I am fully confident
that this master’s degree from University Of Wollongong, Australia, will
improve my career opportunities and the time I spend in Australia will be a
memorable one. Therefore I believe I am eligible to obtain a student visa for
Australia, the land of promises.
