Below is the Sample SOP MSC in Nuclear Science & Engineering
Nuclear science and the complex world of atoms and its particles have intrigued me since childhood. It represents a fascinating jigsaw puzzle, one, I am determined to solve. Today, the threat of global warming is real and imminent: Nuclear science offers a solution with its clean and sustainable energy. It was my visit to the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant site, which concretised my decision to pursue further studies in this domain. A pioneering initiative towards energy independence, it aims at providing low-cost, clean energy by harnessing atomic power. While I saw many Russian experts at the site, I was struck by the lack of our experts. This ignited a desire to attain advanced knowledge to enrich our nuclear sector and be a part of Bangladesh’s Atomic History.
Exploring the mysteries of the atomic world and testing the waters for future course of action in high school, my sustained interest in Atomic Science led me to pursue a B.Sc. in Nuclear Science & Engineering from the prestigious Military Institute of Science and Technology (MIST), Bangladesh University of Professionals (BUP). This practical and research-centric Program laid a sound foundation of Material Science for Nuclear Application and Nuclear Chemical & Corrosion Engineering. I learned about the usage of different materials to reduce radioactivity while gaining insights into Nuclear Fuel Cycle, Radioactive Waste Management, Reactor Operation & Safety. To gain a deeper understanding, I immersed myself in various projects, conferences and workshops. My project on “ Novel Jute Based Composite Material for radiation shielding applications” was highly appreciated. I not only secured an excellent grade but also got its research Paper published in The International Journal of Scientific & Engineering Research (IJSER), (I0122642). The thesis project ‘Neutronic Thermal Hydraulic of SMR cores using deterministic & subchannel codes’ involved seminal research and months of hard work. I also presented a poster on “Environmental impact & radioactivity of soil at Rooppur nuclear power plant project” in ICCHE 2017. Perhaps the most rewarding and satisfying experience has been the presentation of my paper ‘Burnup Benchmark Analysis of PWR spent fuel element using Deterministic code’ at the 8th International Conference on Sciences, Technology & Social Sciences at KL, Malaysia (2018). My research paper ‘Deterministic Analysis of Burnup Benchmark and Isotopic Prediction in Spent Fuel Pool of a PWR Pincell Using WIMSD5b Transport Lattice Code’ has been published in ICIET 2019. I also bring with me a penchant for co-curricular activities. Apart from organizing and participating in various university events, I have undertaken many trainings and workshops. Noteworthy trainings include Training on Nuclear Medicine and Power plant Simulation. The workshop on Nuclear Safety & Radiation Control and Workshop on Heavy Minerals Training on 3 MW TRIGA Mark-II research reactor of Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC) has provided hands-on experience while enhancing my knowledge.
Taking stock of my academic journey post the completion of my B.Sc Program, I feel that I still have a lot to learn in this vast scientific domain. I am specifically interested in furthering my erudition in Science Nuclear to become a Nuclear Scientist and Environmentalist, devising economically viable and environmentally friendly energy solutions for the planet. A Master’s Program in Nuclear Science and Engineering with an International edge will empower me with the necessary skills to innovate and explore the full spectrum of immense possibilities in this realm.
