Wheel, boats, electricity, automobiles, planes, spaceships, wirelessinformation transfer: this evolution is determined by engineering. It would bedifficult to imagine a world without engineering. It is able to make what seemsimpossible into a reality.
Engineers consistently have triumphed over benefits to achieve themost extraordinary structural and mechanical achievement. Leading engineers arethe creators of our future, they apply scientific principles to thousands ofprojects with the aim of making life easier, their pioneering ingenuity hasplayed a significant role in the ever-changing face of technologicaladvancement. This inspired me to become an integral part of this fascinatingfast paced world by studying engineering at university. I like to challenge myself, andsee it as an opportunity to learn something new as it appeals to the moreintrepid side of my character. I have always been curious about the immenseintricacy of various mechanical structures like most engineers.
My passion forengineering stems from an inquisitive side that has fuelled many of myinterests, in particular I enjoy looking into the functioning system behindmany machines we use in our daily lives. For example when my computer broke down I would like to dismantle itand figure out a way to make it function again in an attempt to repair it. Ofcourse I was unable to solve the problem, but this has built on my concern tounderstanding the circuitry and chips embedded in the computer. My desire to study aerospace engineering stemmed fromtravelling. After I have been visiting various technology relatedplaces, a scope of engineering possibilities have been shown to me.
Lookingback into my childhood, I always found myself interested in fixing machines. Puzzlesfor older children and repair the family gadgets were my favouriteentertainment. Understanding the working process of machines from cattle tospacecraft has always led to a unique experience of satisfying my interest. Theborders of my imagination about how far technology can go grew even more when Iattended my first Physics lesson in secondary school. I have a strong interest and ability in science and mathematics asreflected by achieving A’s or A*’s on all my IGCSE exam papers.
Moreover, I haveattained three certificates in the 3rd Annual International MathematicsModeling Challenge, which shows I have the academic mettle to handle thisdemanding course. My passion for aerospace engineering was furthered during myA-Level courses in Physics and Mathematics. These courses enabled me to gain afundamental understanding of the nature of engineering. I am confident that Ihave the necessary academic background to be successful in the study of aerospaceengineering. Being the Vice-President of the St.
Magdalene Social Work Clubrequires strong leadership, as I joined the Social Work Club at the age of 14, Ihave strong disciplined in my behavior and independent. Teachers always assignme to complete important tasks because I am efficient and trustworthy. Outsideschool, an early introduction to music was something I welcomedenthusiastically. I started to play piano at the age of 5.
Besides, I am a keenswimmer and have an interest in yoga and meditations. Sporting interests haveallowed me to have a break from work whilst providing me with a healthy outletfor my spare time. Aeronautical engineers are at the forefrontof an ever-changing world of technology and I want to be a part of the newtechnological developments that change the world for the better.
I believe that I have the academic aptitude andcreativity that will be necessary for a course in engineering and I am lookingforwards to the challenges and opportunities that this degree coursewill bring. My abilities andexperience would allow me to adapt to university life well and utilise my timeat university to become a part of the limitless world of engineering.
