It has been said that “Perseverance is not a long race,it is many short races one by one”. Those perseverant short races of myown life have always been influenced by my persistent determination to achievemy goals and my passion for learning and they shaped the person that I havebecome.
My first race started after finishing my high school. Myfather is a civil engineer and I’ve always watched how different softwaresupports his career by all means and that encouraged me to search and find outhow different computing-related fields take part and interact with all otherscientific fields. In fact, that was the first trigger for my choice ofInformatics Engineering in Albaath University as my major and during my studiesfor various formative courses I realized more the vital role of this field inchanging our future world into a better place. I was and still am certain thatof all scientific specializations at the present time, Computer Science takespride of place. Unfortunately, I had to drop out of my university after mythird year due to the war circumstances in Syria and I had to move to SaudiArabia with my family. For the following two years I was hopelessly waiting forreturning back to my university and there was no chance for completing my studiesin KSA.
Starting over in 2013 at JUST University in Jordan with a new majorwhich is specific oriented program was an excellent platform for me on apersonal, academic and practical level and eventually I got my bachelor inNetwork Engineering and Security. Completing my masters’ studies is my next aim and studyingabroad in a high-tech country like Sweden will help me in constructing a betterprofessional identity and boosting my intellectual vitality. In addition to theexcellent worldwide reputation of the University of Karlstad, its valuableinternational researches and the keen sense of a welcoming atmosphere that Ihave about it, the decisive factor for me to choose this particular masterprogramme in Computer Science at this university is its focusing on ComputerNetworking and Security which is right up my street. I am eager to dive deeperinto Computer Networking and Security and enhance my related qualifications inproblem solving, theoretical and applied researching and handling with complexsituations.
Moreover, I’ve studied many high level courses during my universitytime such as Network Programming, Network Simulation and Modelling,Cryptography and Network Security, Wireless Networks, Multimedia Networking andNetwork Distributed Systems (as special topics) that have real common aspectsof the programme courses which will help me to explore my preferable coursesin-depth. “Knowledge is power” and I need to get this power toachieve my life goals. I am determined to contribute in the major role thatNetworking and Security will have in the breakthrough technologies andinnovations which will shape our digital future. I am also persistent to developmy approach to research problems, methods and theories in line with thecompetencies and skills that I will need in my job prospects.
Yet my countrysuffers the war consequences I want to be ready to participate in thereconstruction phase, I will spare no effort to immerse my knowledge andtransfer tomorrow’s technological development to my nation in order to live itup to the developed country level. Furthermore, I aim to illustrate thenetworking impact on creating a sustainable world which will make our globe abetter place. I believe that I have the required enthusiasm for and commitmentto learning that are crucial to success in reaching my challenging targets andI am sure that this programme will route me toward reaching my goals.In short, I
