Throughout the language of mathematics, something definitive and understandable.




my studies in Mechatronics Engineering, I was always intrigued by heat transfer
phenomena and its applications. Studying subjects like heat & mass
transfer, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics further strengthened my interest.
During my bachelors I did projects like design and fabrication of fuel
efficient vehicle, analysis of exhaust gases from internal combustion engine, power
transmission using gear system and got endorsements from faculty as well as my
supervisors.  I pursued my career with
this interest and have been working in the designing of mechanical systems.

To model heat
transmissions and transfer is akin to describing it in the language of
mathematics, something definitive and understandable. Doing so enables thermofluids
phenomena to be manipulated to achieve engineering objectives. While it may be
very difficult to describe most phenomena via analytical means, development in
the field of computing has certainly made it possible. During my educational
and professional career, I have performed several calculations in terms of heat
losses due to the conduction, convection as radiation as well. I have used software’s
like HAP for heating and cooling loads calculation and spreadsheets based upon Darcy–Weisbach
equation, Hazen Williams equation and Bernoulli’s principle. In my professional
career, I was also involved with the team who performed Computational Fluid
Dynamics (CFD) analysis of a shopping mall in order optimize basement car parking
ventilation system using impulse fans. Designing systems that incorporate boilers,
chillers and pumps require in depth knowledge in order to come up with the most
feasible and energy efficient system.

Living in
a country gripped by severe energy crisis, it was only natural to appreciate
the importance of developing new and sustainable sources of energy. My interest
in thermal storage systems from my work which focuses on the balancing of
energy demand between daytime and nighttime, storing daytime heat for winter
heating, or night cold for summer air conditioning. I have been researching on
various alternate energy resources along with their impacts on environment
specifically solar and geothermal energy. I got them implemented on various
projects and I feel honored to mention that my design work has been appreciated
by my company’s CEO himself, who is chartered energy engineer as well as
chartered building service engineer. 

I also
designed and fabricated fuel-efficient vehicle along with my university fellow
members. My team and I were the pioneers of this concept and laid a platform
for other students to take this concept to a new level. The main idea was to
design a vehicle that can run on 100% ethanol but due to lack of technical and
financial resources we were unable to fabricate that prototype. We managed to
design and fabricate prototype using internal combustion engine and its body
was simulated on ANSYS to make it aerodynamically stable. Our prototype successfully
managed to clear 91 vigorous technical and safety tests conducted by Shell in

I seek to
pursue my graduate studies in the field of Mechanical Engineering (thermofluid).
With the advent of fast computers, this field has a huge potential to grow and
explain different phenomena that we observe. In doing so, I hope to further
understand the underlying principles that govern heat transmission, fluid
mechanics along with energy management. Such understanding would enable me to
advance my work pertaining to mechanical systems involving fluids in order to
design better energy efficient systems. I believe that I have the necessary
background in Fluid Mechanics as well as in Thermodynamics, courses in which I
excelled at undergraduate level, to pursue graduate studies in the field of thermofluid.

I chose
Ryerson University to fulfill my objectives due to several reasons. With
Ryerson being involved in research regarding mechanical engineering, I think
that I will have substantial opportunities to work on numerous facets of this
field. Ryerson University has 133 partner universities in 37 countries so it
has a broad range of research links between them, and with the universities
worldwide to share information and promote cutting-edge research. These links
also provide a broader form of learning as students do not just stick to one
university, but also get valuable insight from people working in other
institutions. I also believe that apart from academics, Ryerson university
offers an extremely diverse choice of cultural and social activities to enrich
the lives of students, thereby encouraging them to make new friends and become
global citizens.
