Topic: DESCRIBE HOW YOUR UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES MIGHT ENABLE YOU TO CONTRIBUTE TO IMPROVING OUR QUALITY OF LIFE IN THE 21ST CENTURY.
It’s so surprising to note that so many centuries have come and gone but none have created so much hype as the 21st century.
There is no doubt that the 21st century is going to be an age of “ information super highway ”. I wish to major in computer engineering-a field where innovations are the order of the day. It’s been a long and troublesome journey from the Stone Age to today’s PC revolution. It’s known that there is dearth of computer professionals in the third world, it’s imperative that they catch up with the computer phenomenon in the 21st century.
I would like traveling around these needy countries, educating people by building some sort of computer network to get things moving. This will empower the people with a tool to see for them how the world is shaping up? This would create a much better human race with every person getting an equal opportunity to hone his or her respective skills. That’s what living on this beautiful earth is all about, after all “ all men are created equal” is not a purely textual term it needs to be practised too and what better way to start my career than helping the underprivileged.
In the 21st century we must eliminate nuclear weapons through treaties such as COMPREHENSIVE TEST BAN TREATY (CTBT), which call on member states to disarm.
I am very eager to promote peace in the world, through my studies at Polytechnic in computer engineering I could go on and volunteer as a scientist who could help in dismantling nuclear weapons by computer controlled techniques.
This would be the greatest contribution I could make in the 21st century. What else could a person ask but a society where after such a turbulent 20th century one could live in a place where no nation threatens to wipe out the “ thousands of years old ” human civilization with just a tiny nucleus.
