Suhit Kodgule MSE: Robotics

Personal Statement

At this stage of robotics, there is a dissonance among two fields, two pieces that prevent from forming a cohesive whole: artificial intelligence and control theory. While AI suffers from a lack of rigorous mathematical design that can ensure robustness, control theory lacks the cognitive reasoning essential for solving problems in perception or path planning. The problem that I wish to address is this: can we develop a unifying, all-encompassing theory that can merge AI and control theory, possessing the advantages of both while rejecting the disadvantages of both? This question became prominent due to three projects I had undertaken.
The first research project was on developing

My internship at CET Power solutions was one such experience. My work consisted of automating the entire process of water supply right from monitoring the supply to fault rectification. This internship also allowed me to experience high pressure environments as I had to simultaneously juggle a 50 hour-per-week internship and learn German for Goethe Institute’s A1 exam. Another experience was designing of a miniature robot at the workshop of the Robozest competition, where I won first place. The reason that I found robotics this appealing is clear enough: robotics directly translates the mathematics into physical reality. I find it immensely satisfying to be able to hold the tangible fruits of labor in my hands and overcome complex …show more content…
Since I wish to invest sufficient time in both AI and control theory, the robotics MSE program would align exceptionally well with my research prospects. Moreover, the program’s technical electives such as CIS 515 and ESE 504 would allow me to develop the adjunct theories for research as well. In conjunction with mastering both control theory and AI, I wish to apply that knowledge for robot navigation. Prof CJ Taylor’s expertise in this domain would help me gain the requisite exposure needed for the pursuit of my aspirations and I would be humbled if I were given the opportunity to contribute to his projects in any way I

    There were so many attractive theoretical subjects such as Project and Operation Management, Production Planning and Control, Operations and Research, Supply Chain Management, Quality Management. In fact, I also went through several practical subjects too. For instance C++, Industrial Simulation, MATLAB, Mechanical Drawing, Product Design and Development were some of the practical course and I also used to get good grades in it, which shows the better practical knowledge of mine. All course programs were a mixture of theory and practice. These courses not only enhanced my learning but also given me another path of thinking.…

    Throughout my childhood, I saw my father more as an engineer (he pursued mechanical engineering in the college) than as a business-man handling our family business as he always used to apply his engineering logics for every household problems. Be it repairing any machine in the kitchen or handling logistics in the business, he always proved that an engineer always find a unique out-of-the-box solution for every problem. And thus, in my high school, I realized that I share the same passion as my father’s and opted for science as my major stream. From then on I dreamt of becoming an engineer. With decent scores in science subjects, I decided to pursue engineering as my undergraduate degree.…

    This summer I built the classic puzzle game Bejeweled, and abstract strategy games English Draughts and Chess. I did this because I am a big fan of all three of these games, and I wanted to challenge myself by implementing the game logic. Also during the summer I started learning android. The app that I built that I am most proud of is a calculator that works in sixty different numeral systems from base 2 to base 62. I started the project making a calculator that uses hexadecimal instead of decimal, but then I decided to expand the project by introducing more bases using the characters 0-9, a-z and A-Z.…

    I carefully determined to pursue a prosthodontics program because of my skills as a design engineer and my desire to work with restorations and cosmetics. My responsibility as a lead engineer was to design and fabricate intricate turbine jet engine parts. The process of designing complex components demanded a deep understanding of manufacturing processes, a talent for using machining and CAD/CAM tools, precision, esthetics and creativity. My background has led me to believe that I would use these skills to become an effective prosthodontist someday. Wanting to become a prosthodontist is not a recent desire, but a result of experiences over my lifetime.…
