My student Rahul Gupta is applying to your institution for graduate studies in computer science/engineering. During the two years that I have known him, he has been a student of my class in courses on Basic Electronics & Analog Electronics. His sincerity and urge to learn made him an active participant in class always. His academic ability and eagerness to acquire knowledge are further strengthened by his steady determination and never-say-die attitude, even when he is in the backwaters. In fact, his urge for graduate study is a natural consequence of the qualities that I have just mentioned.
Right from the sophomore year of his undergraduate course, he has been very actively involved in various projects involving both hardware and software design. In fact, there are very few in his class who have acquired as much practical experience in this field as Rahul has. Although I have not guided him in any of these projects, I have very often observed him working very hard. He holds forth a very high degree of motivation and initiative. He is indeed a very creative, and where teamwork is involved I have seen him leading from the front. He can work hours at a strength, and can be teamed a workaholic of sorts. I therefore feel that, in him, you will find a very suitable graduate student, with an aptitude for research activities.
I therefore strongly recommend him for admission to your graduate program with full financial aid.
