The proposed Masters in Information Technology offered at Deakin University is apt for my academic requirement, in such a way that, it will prepare me to deal with complex issues and challenges as faced in contemporary computing arenas. It will provide me pragmatic knowledge and mould me into a thorough IT professional.
Being a married woman, I took a break from my professional life in order to help my husband in setting up his new bakery venture. This gap gave me enough time to contemplate about my career interest and aspirations. Pursuing a master’s degree seemed to be a perfect idea to add value to my profile and hone my skills so as to emerge as a competent professional. When I expressed my academic objectives to my husband, he extended his wholehearted support and encouraged me to do higher studies. Ever since I made up my mind to do further education, I have been immersed in extensive online research. For many reasons, I chose Deakin University over several renowned universities in Australia. Online university reviews and students’ forums vastly influenced me to go with this particular choice. Most of them hailed the university for its academic excellence, great infrastructure and brilliant and supportive faculty. I was pretty much impressed to find that the university has excellent QS Ranking and is in the list of top 10 universities in Australia. Besides having an illustrious line of alumni, the esteemed university is well-regarded for implementing advanced pedagogical concepts and providing beyond-the-classroom learning experience, that effectively prepares the students for their chosen career. I am certain to receive a holistic academic experience by pursuing the Master’s program from this venerated university. These are some of the major factors that attracted me towards Deakin University.
Course Relevancy with My Academic Background
Right from my childhood, I showed an inclination towards computers. I chose to do Bachelors in Computer Application for my graduation, only for my penchant for computing field. At RK University, Rajkot, I was thrilled to have got acquainted with a wide range of subjects that aligned with my field of interest. Computer Programming, Digital Circuits and Logic Designs, Data Structures, Operating Systems and Database Management System are some of the core topics that I found quite stimulating. I remember that I had eagerly imbibed all the theoretical and practical aspects of the subjects. I showed high involvement in carrying out academic projects. I was specifically felt enriched when I worked on my final year project, that was entitled as ‘Library Management System’. It gave me enough scope to utilise whatever I knowledge that I gained then as well as get equipped with additional skills. In course of my graduation, I also felt fascinated to learn about Data Analytics, Networking and Big Data, which actually motivated me to take up the career of a Data Analyst, Data Manager or Software Engineer someday. I believe that the proposed Master’s program truly matches my prior academic background and give me a chance to delve deeper into data-oriented domain and understand its intricacies thoroughly.
How My Current Qualifications Matches with the Chosen Course?
I started my career journey right after I completed my graduation. I chose to acquire adequate professional expertise and exposure instead of doing higher studies. I joined ______ in 2011 as a Technical Associate. After receiving 2 years of experience, I went on to accept the job position of CRM Practitioner at ______ in 2013. Later in 2014, I joined _______ to work as Technical Support. I resigned from this job following my marriage in 2016. After 9 months of professional break, I joined ______ in 2017. But very soon, I had to resign the job because I had to shift to another city along with my husband to launch his new business. Through my extensive work experience in information technology, I have amassed broad industry insights and familiarised with varied kinds of technologies and techniques used commonly. While I have been performing my professional duties efficiently, I have consciously felt that I lacked advanced knowledge and sufficient skills to handle new challenges in relevant field. The Master’s program will thus be beneficial in bridging the academic gap and enhance my competencies. With the intensive coursework and trainings in the program, I will be shaped into a proficient professional. To prove my proficiency in English language, I had also undertaken IELTS exam, in which I obtained an overall band score of 6.5.
Future Plans & Career Aspirations
Once I finish the Master’s program successfully, I intend to return to India and look for employment opportunities in reputed ITeS or IT firms namely Google, Amazon or Accenture. In recent years, there has been a great boom in the information technology sector in India, thanks to campaigns like ‘Digital India’ and ‘Make in India’, which are being heavily promoted by the Indian government. By utilising the newly acquired academic expertise and skills from the proposed Master’s program, I wish to make novel contributions to the IT field. The international qualification that I would obtain will definitely enhance my career profile and help me to attract rewarding job opportunities in my home country. After gaining considerable work experience, I have planned to launch my own IT company that will provide effective and affordable computing solutions that will aid in the growth of start-ups and small-scale businesses. I wish to bring in a radical and positive change in the rural parts of my country through my IT firm and help in the welfare of communities living there.
Reasons to Come Back to My Home Country
I have planned to come back to India, once I complete the Master’s program and there are various reasons for doing so. Mainly, I have my entire family in India. Being a married woman, it is my duty to take care of my husband and his family. They have been highly supportive about my academic goals and motivated me to do higher studies from abroad. I am very much attached to my family and I wouldn’t be able to stay apart from them for a long time. So, I wish to return to them as soon as I finish chasing my academic pursuits in Australia. Also, I have plans to launch my own IT company in my own home country, in the future. All my investments and assets are in India and I have to take care of them. All these factors make it necessary for me to return to India.
As a part of the financial obligations that an international student has to abide to, I would like to inform that my education fee and living expenditure in Australia will be funded by my husband. He is financially sound and has sufficient savings and fixed deposits, worth INR 5 million, in his bank account. Also, I have my own savings, worth nearly INR 1.5 million, accrued from my 5 years of work experience. I am certain that these funds will be enough to cover all the expenses that I might face during my temporary stay in Australia. I am attaching all the documents that support the financial status of my husband as a proof.
