Writing a meaningful and persuasive statement of purpose may not only win you a place in a respected university but it also may earn you a scholarship.You can use this sample statement of purpose for your reference if you are applying for any Masters or PhD program.

I am (write your full name here), born and brought up in( your city of birth), ( your country of birth). After completing my Bachelor degree(Electrical Engineering) from University of Texas, USA,I was involved in computer networking related job for almost 2 years, then I joined a master degree program (telecommunications) in University of Manchester ,UK. Before establishing my own telecom & Networking consultancy business, I was doing job in CDMA2000 and WiMaX for over 2.5 years. My working experience in the field of telecom has given me lots of confidence and insights into the field of communication engineering. Moreover, after starting my career as a trainer made me study all the basics and theory of communications technology once again, which was very fascinating because after getting job exposure in the same arena gave me a good visualization power in the critical areas of the communication environments like communication channel modeling, coding theory, multiplexing techniques etc. So, I have Intended my mind to go for a research oriented degree and going for a PhD is the best option, since it would not only give me a details insight to the subjects of my interest but also improve my chances of future technical growth.

Research Project Plan

Becoming involved in a WiMAX project in Bangladesh, I started to understand the immense potential behind the multiplexing technique of OFDM. I strongly believe that there are lot of options either unexplored or underdeveloped in the research arena of OFMD and MIMO. I have a research plan related to MIMO-OFDM. I would like to explore the modeling of MIMO-OFDM system along with spread spectrum in order to maximize the benefits of both the multiplexing system using frequency, time and antenna diversity techniques.

Reason behind choosing of the doctoral school:

In the letter of motivation most of the universities want to know the reason behind choosing the doctoral school of that university. In my case, I came to know about the international reputation of the Universita Di Roma in 2001(when I was doing my bachelor degree in India), based on a ranking published in the communications of the ACM , Dec. 1996 ,measuring research productivity, where its rank was 56.But this is not the only reason for my applying into the School of Science and Technology of Computing and Communication of this university .I believe that the blend of rich culture, technology and heritage of ITALY will definitely open up a new world of opportunities and help me to grow personally, technically and internationally as well.

My Scientific Interests:

I have sound knowledge and interest in wireless communication systems (CDMA2000, GSM, GPRS,EDGE, WiMAX), computer security, programming in C & C++, data communications, coding theory, different types of multiple access techniques, characteristics of communication channels, signal processing, Matlab Simulink, communication tools & blockset, signal processing tools & blockset, curve fitting tool, Bertool etc.

My Future Plan

After Completion of PhD program I would like to join in any private technical university in my home country, because I have found the acute shortage of PhD degree holder faculty member in my place. I also hope that someday I would be able to set up an excellent communication research institute in Dhaka, so as our future generation can produce quality research staying at home. I truly believe that getting admission and scholarship in Universita Di Roma will take me a step ahead in achieving my goals. Finally, I would like to thank Universita Di Roma for offering PhD program in the state- of-the-art areas in communication Technology. Thanking you.

With Regards
