“Time and tide wait for no man”, this we all know. Hence, having done an inspiring four-year course in Electronic Engineering, I would like to put to use this knowledge to do my Masters in Science. This would give me the leading edge in technology and the practical low-down and information I require. For the past few decades man is advancing into the unknown realms of technology and science. This advancement is to make life easy and to increase human comfort at home and at work and I would like to be an integral part of such betterment. For this, research would be of prime importance with hands on experience in real time applications accompanied by in-depth knowledge of the subject. Technology, today, means power in the

The powers they yielded always amazed me. Consequently I decided to attain my Bachelors degree in electronic engineering as it opened up many possibilities and interesting challenges for the reason that science and technology are the roots of many interesting scientific and technical activities. During my engineering course I was introduced to the concepts of microprocessors and microcontrollers and I had taken an instant liking to these subjects. At the same time I became a member of IEEE and by way of their articles learnt a lot more about microprocessors and the role they play in everyday life. It heightened my interest in topics like RISC, CISC and Parallel Processing. All this together aided my decision to specialize in Computer Engineering especially in Computer Architecture & Parallel Processors.

Since then I’ve covered numerous topics in microprocessors such as the Intel 8085, 8086,80386 and their instruction sets along with peripheral devices, the ISA bus and the 8051 microcontroller. With every new topic that I studied my interest in this field grew (exponentially). Also my electives for the final semester are Microcomputer System Design and Digital Signal Processing. In Microcomputer System Design I shall learn about the Pentium Processor and the PCI bus. Moreover a conceptual view of Microsoft Windows NT, Windows NT models-client server is part of the
