Let me start the SOP with my self-introduction. Myself XXXX, planning to pursue Masters in Computer Sciences from your University.
I am from an environment which is a perfect mix and match of village, town, and a city. People here are kind-hearted and are of helping nature.
I consider myself as an above average or even a brilliant student when it comes to academics. I have achieved 71% in my SSC exams which is a start up to my career. My wish to continue the same progress throughout my career has taken a shape in my intermediate education. Many thought that my decision of taking Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry as my majors is just a casual decision. But with my sincerity I scored a dashing 90% which has proved that “I was not futile, but outrageous”. I carried out the same characteristic in my under graduation also.
My groundwork to select the course and College started from here itself. With my interest in my Sciences and Mathematics I have shown interest in Electricals and Electronics. Also my seniors gave an opinion that this field is having multiple opportunities for further studies and for the career opportunities. Finally, I decided that this group is a win-win situation.
I had my foot in Electrical Engineering. From the day one, I maintained the same graph till the end of my under graduation. The various concepts like current, voltage, circuits, and different theorems had dragged the real out of me. But all that hard input became light when I scored 78% in my Undergraduate exams. I jumped into jubilance after my results. Even my project work in final year had won accolades all over the college.
I am very confident and my marks will tell you this. The school and colleges I have studied contributed a lot in my effective communication skills. I am innovative and different in my ideas and also the way I execute it. I always try to keep and maintain a good relationship with others. I believe others very quickly. This is my strength and weakness as well.
“When a man is tired of USA, he is tired of life”.
I am one of those who dreamt of having higher studies in USA. USA is a land of quality universities and a treasure of opportunities, those are looking for. Doing higher studies over there is my childhood fascination. And it all happened so that the university I want to pursue Masters (your University) is also in USA. I am very lucky for that.
Also the technical and social advancements of the country mould you as a better human being with a treasure of wide knowledge and help you for self-growth.
I am very inquisitive about computers. This inquisitiveness came during my under graduation, when I registered for the crash courses like C, C++ and the basics of Java.
After my graduation, doing higher studies became inevitable for me. Then I thought, instead of going with the tide and pursue some course which the time will decide, let me decide my own fate. With this clarity, I decided to pursue Masters in Computers.
Also the opportunities for a Computers Graduate are more compare to other graduates.
“The field of Computers is Immortal. “
“Ordinary people strive for living hood and geniuses strive to provide it for others also”. This is the way I look at life. In my perspective, the education you pursue and the job you do should help the needy in some way or the other. In my nearer future, I want to be in a good position by establishing my own firm and generate employment for others. Thus it will be a two way beneficial. If I will be able to do that I will become a role model for at least a few.
Watching movies is my hobby and my source of recreation. I watch light weight movies and language is not a bar. I love unwinding with friends for a shopping. Often on I also play indoor games, whenever I got time.
I don’t think, for a girl, no other person stood first as an idol rather than her own father and I am no more an exception. He is very industrious, focused, and a hard worker. His broader thinking sense is the reason behind my achievements so far. Next to my father, I love Rajini kanth very much. The way he manages larger than life image is unbelievable. He is very sober and down to earth.
When I was searching for your University online, I couldn’t found a reason to hesitate to apply. By the testimonials I understood that the fact that the University has produced many scholars, entrepreneurs, Engineers and doctors worldwide. The two-hour long visit of your website has shot all my doubts.
I was aware of the fact that having a spectacular academic background will help me to understand the topics better, but to excel it I had to sweat a lot. I am ready to give my two year of time for that, if I got the admission at your University.
I think I justified my reasons for all above and the remaining I can do is to wait for your call.

Information technology is a further step to mankind.
From the past few decades, the capabilities of both generation and collection of data has been increasing in great pace. The main factors include the computerization in all the sectors such as business, science, government and management. In addition to these, the World Wide Web which is a global information system has loaded us with a tremendous amount of data and information. The present scenario of online banking transactions is a good example of the need of secure and convenient information system. This explosive growth in stored data has generated an urgent need for new techniques and tools that can intelligently assist us in the management of data and information. So, defining new methods and utilizing the present tools of managing information system in a more efficient way could be a flourishing frontier in the information field for the days ahead. Beside we should not forget: The need is great in the future.
The present world is surrounded by the data and information field. On one hand, these data present the potential for us to discover useful information and knowledge not seen before. On the other hand, we are limited in our ability to manually process large amounts of data to discover useful information and knowledge. So, the need of better tools and application as well as the reliable methods of utilizing the data and information is the eminent necessity of not only today’s world but the future also. The real-time processing and analysis of various data and information should be realized. There should be a constant evaluation of the system indicating relatively strong work handling capacity and expansion capacity; useful for optimization, reduction of management risks, and improvement of information efficiency.
I am dedicated, involved and sincere, and well equipped to meet your high standards.
