Name : Alen TomyUniversity : University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, CanadaAcademic Program : Master of Engineering-MechanicalEnrollment Status : Full TimeIntroductionI am Alen Tomy, a sincere, ambitious and hard-working person. I believe in taking up new challenges in life and fulfilling them to utmost. I have successfully completed All India Secondary School Examination (AISSE) with 93% and All India Senior School Certificate Examination (AISSCE) in Science stream with 90.4% from Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). My keen interest in engineering studies supported with strong academic performance in Grade 12, gave me the confidence to pursue Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering in 2013. I completed my Bachelors Program in Engineering specializing in Mechanical Engineering from Viswajyothi College of Engineering & Technology, Vazhakulam, Kerala affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala, India in May 2017 with a CGPA of 8.71. After completing my bachelor degree, I have gained sufficient knowledge about the fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering those are applicable to most of the design, processes, production and manufacturing sectors. This naturally creates an urge of knowing in detail about the advanced technologies. So in order to enhance my knowledge, I planned to opt for Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Windsor. I firmly believe that the attractive opportunity offered by this University can truly help me both in enhancing knowledge about the industry and my credentials. Furthermore, to meet the entrance requirement for the University I have also appeared for English Language Proficiency Test (IELTS) and scored an overall band of 7.5.Reason for Choosing This CourseAs we know Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and comprehensive among the engineering disciplines. The world of today have gained a lot from this particular branch and it still continues. Mechanical Engineers are responsible for the smooth and proper functioning of a number of industrial sectors such as automotive, aerospace, power generation, manufacturing, refineries and so on. They usually go beyond the limits and they are one of the best problem solvers in the world. So I also want to be a part of this powerful engineering sector. But for that, the knowledge I acquired so far is not enough. Hence I choose a Master’s degree in Mechanical engineering as the next logical step. I have searched for courses in my country but got a very little option. So when I came to know about Master of Engineering course at the University of Windsor for 2 years, I decided to go for the same. I have gone through the course content of this particular program and it’s quite different from what I have studied before. Master of Engineering is a course-based program designed for those who want to increase their knowledge in multiple, advanced topics.Reason for Choosing University of WindsorThe selection of the right university by the candidate is as important as the selection of the right candidate by the university.
