STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Albert Einstein’s words “imagination is more important than knowledge”, motivated me right from the school days and I always imagine of things that made me stand out amongst the lot. I have always been amongst the best in the class especially in mathematics and physics, my interest and passion towards the subject made me secure good marks in each papers and helped in securing an aggregate of 89.2% in my intermediate study. A strong determination, coupled with an inherent quality to do something different have always been the propelling factors influencing my choices, led me to pursue my career in Aeronautical Engineering at Marri Laxma Reddy Institute of Technology, affiliated to Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University of Hyderabad, which is one of the most reputed private universities in Hyderabad specifically for Aeronautical Engineering. During my under graduation level of education, I have completed my studies on the basic subjects like Propulsion, Aerodynamics, Aerospace Structures and Flight mechanics. I have also chosen elective courses like Finite Element Methods, Computational Aerodynamics and Space Mechanics. While doing these courses I understood the concepts behind the working of different Aircrafts and Space Vehicles. I did my summer internship at DRDO (The Defense Research and Development Organization) which is an agency of the Republic of India, responsible for the development of technology for use by the military, headquartered in New Delhi, India. During this period of internship I acquired practical knowledge on designing and manufacturing of a composite shell, which can be used as a pressure vessel or casing for a solid rockets. As a part of my thesis, in the final year of my bachelors I’ve worked on the aerodynamics of missiles by taking the missile SPARROW as an example. I have mentioned the effects and how the lift and efficiency can be enhanced by using Protrusions of various kinds. My college provided a...
