STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
We are always helped to remember the way that we live in a world that is both dependent on and keep running by machines. Machines are part of our humanity. We created them to extend ourselves. Like Steve jobs once said “The computer is the most remarkable tool we’ve ever come up with. It’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds” as indicated by this you can find computers and computers technology everywhere throughout the society from business and financial organizations to home electronics and appliances. My parents have always taught me that education is our only wealth because education is the manifestation of the true potential in a human. Education does give me knowledge, however to be an entire individual, I need wisdom, which is picked by experience and exposure to a variety of people and circumstances.
I am delightful to introduce myself as Harmandeep Bali. I live in a nuclear family. My father Mr. Kamaljit Singh is a government employee and my mother Mrs. Parveen Rani is a homemaker and I have one younger brother.
Starting off with my academic’s, I have completed my secondary education in 2009 from Government Model Senior Secondary School, Chandigarh which is affiliated to CBSE Board and I have scored 67.8%. During high school, I was fascinated with electronic gadgets and computer for me was only a means of entertainment as I found it exciting to play games and generating various mathematical series and patterns through basic programming. Later, I chose polytechnic diploma in Electronics and Communication Engineering program in which my aggregate was 62.6%. In the second year of my polytechnic diploma, I was introduced to the subject of “Computer Programming and Applications” and “Communication System” in which I had learned basics of C language and different types of networks. Later on, this subject helped me in selecting my undergraduate program I picked up Computer Science and Engineering at Shaheed Udham Singh College of Engineering ;Technology, Tangori, Punjab (India) affiliated to I.K. Gujral Punjab Technical University (formerly Punjab Technical University) Jalandhar, Punjab (India) which is considered one of the best in Technical education in the state and is approved by “GOVT. of PUNJAB” and “AICTE” (All India Council of Technical Education). I passed my undergraduate program with the first division in 2017 and my overall aggregate are 75.63%. To make my knowledge more skilled with the world’s best teaching facilities I decided to pursue my higher education from abroad. Looking towards this I started preparing for Ielts exam and got 6.5 bands overall.
The reason I don’t choose India for my post graduation is because India have a limited top-quality programs or educational institutes and those program are available lack in providing the practical knowledge. The traditional trend in education system spoon-fed their students which lack in making themselves job ready.
During my research to find the best overseas study destination, I choose Canada because Canada places a lot of importance to education and maintains very high standards in education. A degree acquired from Canadian education providers is recognized globally and is valued highly in the international job market. Canada offers not only quality education, but education which is affordable for international including Indian students. Compared to countries like the UK, USA and Australia, cost of education in Canada is quite moderate. Canada is one of the safest places to study with very low crime rates. Canada is one of the few nations that offer job opportunities to students who have graduated from Canada and have obtained a Canadian degree. In fact, after finishing their studies, international students can work in Canada for up to 3 years. Canada has the best educated people and the highest literacy rate in the world. They provide the market driven courses with technologically advanced techniques used to uplift the atmosphere of classroom.
During my research to find the best suitable college, I found Cambrian College of applied arts and technology more accurate because it is one of the reputed college in Ontario and having main campus in Sudbury and having three more campuses locations in Toronto , Brampton and Vancouver. Cambrian works in partnership with school boards, training institutes, universities, and other institutes- locally, nationally and internationally- in order to provide additional educational opportunities and to share expertise and resource. Further, Cambrian’s commitment to its many communities is evidenced by the wabnode institute, the college’s center for the advancement of first nation’s education, and by its status as a leader in meeting the needs of persons with disabilities and their project-based learning model provides the hands-on experience that will prepare me for success in a wide range of potential careers – in business and hospitality, skilled trades, engineering and information technology, health and life sciences, community services or media and design. Moreover, Cambrian is the largest college in northern Ontario, with 4400 full time students and close to 90 full-time programs, and 9000 registration are taken annually for part-time personal, professional and human resources development courses, workshops and seminars. Cambrian college has a proven track record of continuous improvement and success. Their students consistently achieve top honors in local, provincial and international competitions. The graduate employment and graduate satisfaction rates are best of all Ontario’s colleges.
I have decided to do my post graduation diploma in Cloud Computing because this advanced-level graduate certificate program provides individuals with the skills, knowledge and job oriented practical aspects of computer science. This two-year graduate certificate program will focus on understanding the cloud service models, the financial, technological and organizational implications of migrating to the cloud, as well as security and privacy implications of cloud computing. In fourth semester I have to complete a mandatory 15-week paid Co-op work term which will offer hands-on professional experience and industry connections.
During my study I will come across various subjects like Cloud security, Database design, SQL server, Local area networks, install windows server, MS exchange server, operating different servers in virtual machine manager, cloud strategies, SharePoint, Management scripting and many more. This can help me to enhance my Technical Capability, Communications Skills and team work. Moreover, I believe the program offered will help me acquire the versatility needed to explore my potential as a successful engineer.
On completion of the program cloud computing from Cambrian College of Applied arts and technology, I will come back to my home country and I will get a chance to build my career in the IT industry and get an opportunity to work with some of the leading companies as a cloud engineer. The cloud engineer position can be broken into multiple roles, including cloud architect, cloud software engineer, cloud security engineer, cloud network engineer and many more positions. Each position focuses on a specific type of cloud computing, rather than the technology as a whole. India is a developing nation, and its economy depends on industries and Engineers are the backbone of industries. So I have a great future after this course.
I am confident that my professional experience and academic performance will meet your requirement. I will be honored if selected for the course and will contribute to the best of my ability.
