Masters Computer Science Canada

March 12, 2013

From the time I was introduced to the rudiments of Computer Science, I have excelled in the study of algorithms, programming languages and data processing.  I have an inquisitive nature, and enjoy challenges and mysteries.  Even as a boy, I loved solving problems through careful thought, testing and experimentation.  High school brought focus to my raw talents in math, and physics, subjects that gave me a practical outlet for solving new, more advanced problems.  While I felt I could always give my energy and time to math and physics, computer science gave me that much more, satisfying my need to be constantly learning and being exposed to the newest technologies.  The field seemed limitless, and I eagerly anticipated the next breakthrough.

 Continuing my pursuit of Computer Science is more than a logical progression for my academic, professional and research experiences; it is the only natural choice given my sensibilities, ambitions, and indeed my dreams.  Increasing my depth of knowledge in Computer Science through active research and perhaps teaching assistantships and or tutoring, I will become fully equipped to bring my goals for the future to fruition.  First and foremost in my goals is completing a graduate program, and laying the foundation for my career in Computer Science, thus contributing to the future of the only field that has ever brought me the greatest fulfillment.

 I bring with me to the graduate Computer Science program a solid academic foundation in Computer Applications and Computer Science, half a decade of conceptual continuity in academic exposure.  Indeed, I have an excellent base of knowledge in not just the basics of calculus and physics, but also many practical hands-on programming language experiences with Java, C# and C++.  In order to be truly effective in my future work, beyond the classroom and into the business world, I will need to solidify my understanding of how today’s technologies can provide sustainable solutions for today’s business world, and more specifically, expand upon my existing grasp of web-based applications and networking.

 What is more, I bring my ability to adapt to new situations.  Proof of my ability to adapt can be found in my having completed classes conducted in English, despite Arabic being my native language.  The confidence to make such a successful transition likely stems from my intimate understanding of yet another language, namely Computer Science.

 I feel that my international experiences will be a distinct advantage in the classroom.  Having lived and been educated in KSA, and Canada, and travels to four different countries on two diverse continents, I have a worldview that is quite different from my academic peers, and I am able to interact effectively with many diverse people; combined with this is my ability to speak two languages fluently.  As a result, I am able to speak confidently in front of groups of people.  A graduate student needs to be able to interact effectively with people of differing cultures.  This is what I bring to the student body, one in which I anticipate many opportunities for group assignments, teamwork and projects.  Moreover, as a Computer Networking expert, I anticipate the need to interact with clients from many backgrounds.  Given my cultural competency and superior education, I will be a very valuable component of the multidisciplinary IT team.

 The prospect of a quality Computer Science education is incredibly exciting to me.  This is my field, where I feel fulfilled and aim to leave my mark in. Thank you for your time and consideration.
