My plan to pursue a Master of Science in Computer Information System hinges on personal confidence concerning the course’s value and suitability for my career background and objectives. A further source of my motivation to undertake the course involves the course’s suitability and match for my academic experience and my passion for the way computer systems function to enhance efficiency and convenience in human activities. I am originally from Kathmandu in Nepal, migrating to the U.S. in 2001, by which time I had obtained an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and got married. The undergraduate degree was not genuinely my choice since in Nepalese culture, the decisions of what course to take and which college to attend are the responsibility of parents. I have been working in a government agency for twelve years, initially as a project manager for environmental investigations and clean-up projects for twelve years. Recently, I have obtained an elevation to the program management level, at which I am practicing managerial work and business analysis. The role entails the tracking of various projects and daily solutions to intricate logistical issues and operations.
I have always aspired to pursue higher studies, believing that this would reinforce my prospects for career success. Along with my full-time job responsibilities, I have also been raising my children. Now that my children have started schooling, I believe that it is an opportune time to focus on my objectives, the first of which involves going back to school for a degree of my choice. Presently, I wish to take up a career in computer information systems, an area in which I have developed a passionate interest, based on a fascination with the potential and the broad range of fulfilling opportunities that are prevalent in the applications of computer technology. I have had considerable experience in the application of the technology for some time through my employment since we utilize computer technology to conduct environmental investigations and evaluations. Academically, I have had some experience in the course’s subject, pursuing programming and advanced mathematics such as calculus in college and taking a semester-long class in C++ programming. The degree program shall have complementary value for this background by enriching the variety of academic and professional experiences that I have acquired. I am certain that a Master’s level of education in the computer information system field would guarantee the precise variety and intensity of practical skills and competence that I am seeking. The course also promises to exploit the passion that I have in the field, my basic experience and familiarity with the field’s processes and functioning, and some academic experience in the course’s subject to enhance my motivation for excellence.
The factors that I bring to the program include an intense passion and a desire and motivation to apply my creativity and innovative competence. I also have the inspiration to participate actively and cooperate with other professionals and colleagues to advance the field of computer information systems and the value of IT infrastructure. I am ready to work diligently to achieve the highest possible levels of knowledge and practical know-how in the program and field in order to raise its productivity and efficiency. My fitness for the program concerns the clarity and unambiguousness of my ambition to attain a mastery of the program’s skills, based on confidence that the field of computer information systems constitutes the area of my future career. My personality traits - a sociable, diligent, focused, exploratory, and open-minded character with a passion for knowledge - also fit the program’s demands. The course’s focus on building student’s skills in the evaluation, management, and influence of information technology teams and infrastructure requires this range of personal skills and competencies for excellence. The characteristics shall serve as advantages in the proficient and exhaustive exploitation of the course’s resources - instructional staff, written and online learning materials, and interactions and collaborations with colleagues - to yield optimum academic and practical skill values. My intuitive, analytical, and creative personality shall also enhance my ability to utilize and apply acquired skills in the program to ensure personal excellence and complement the learning of colleagues for group success and development in the course.
The program represents a perfect fit for the direction that I want my career to take, going forward. It focuses on the preparation and enhancement of students’ information technology skills for productive and effective leadership in IT contexts. The program’s emphasis on developing business management skills and superior technical practices and methods to administer, influence, and evaluate information technology infrastructure and teams make it attractive at a personal level. An exploration of the modern computing and information technologies in data security, web programming, and business intelligence, among other fields, is relevant to sharpen my professional capacity to serve in an administrative position in the IT field. I desire to develop a rich repository of practical skills that I can apply in executive positions, such as in administration settings, to ascertain the effective and efficient application of IT processes and infrastructure. I need to obtain an adequate and resourceful technical background and innovative expertise to develop competitive solutions for both typical and unique IT problems, with a focus on process efficiency and increased productivity.
This profile of the program’s skill and competence outcomes fits the career that I wish to take up in the future. It fits the range and intensity of qualifications that are necessary for a leadership position of active influence in an IT environment. My aspiration is to contribute substantively to the improvement of IT infrastructure, especially because the IT field features a host of opportunities and prospects in the modern times of intensive globalization. The efficient management of IT platforms, teams, and infrastructure is vital to enhance the utility and productivity of the field. I wish to participate actively in this process and promote the safe, reliable, productive, and efficient application of IT infrastructure and technology, using the innovative and competent capacities that I shall gain from the program.
The learning and program environment at St Edward's University is the ideal one for my achievement of these objectives. One attractive element in the institution’s environment concerns the small size of classes, which implies that the student can benefit enormously from quality attention and intensive interactions with other students at a personal level. The orientation in the institution’s program constitutes the precise profile of a Master of Science program in the Computer Information System field that I seek and wish for. The agency for which I work runs an Information Technology division, whose responsibilities include developing databases and software that employees, including me, use in daily assignments. I have found these applications intriguing, and my goal and interests are to understand and gain competence in the development process, such that I can manage the project or program successfully. This degree course fits this objective through its focus on the equipment of students with better understanding and pertinent skills in the relationship between computer information systems and business management. The course’s orientation concerns the preparation of students for effective leadership competencies and capacities in IT contexts. It focuses on the equipment of students with practical business management and advances technical process skills for the competent evaluation, administration, and influence of IT infrastructure and team. I hope to utilize the opportunity of this program’s suitable orientation and model for my background and objectives competently for personal and my community’s benefits.
