Mechanical Engineering Personal Statement

I personally feel that there is substantial cachet to be gained by pursuing the field of Mechanical Engineering. The diversity present in this field has attracted me and it is consistent with my enthusiasm for Mathematics and Science. It has a lot of scope as well. I have gone through the entire gist of the course and the specific areas which interested me were Mechatronics, Robotics and Project Design. I know what a career in Engineering is like, since I come from a third generation family of Engineers. I have been quite impressed by the teamwork involved in Mechanical Engineering; how people work in groups, in order to complete a project e.g. produce a machine which would curtail the load on laborers and would generate results more quickly and efficiently.

In my opinion, supervising, problem solving and decision making play an important role in most of the Engineering firms. Studying Accounting till AS level has helped me to further add to these skills. A level Physics and Chemistry, through finely planned syllabi, have provided me a beneficial educational experience. They have equipped me with adequate knowledge and understanding so that I could become a confident member of the advanced world of technology. I have the zeal to develop self inspiration and the talent to work in a consistent manner. I believe that Science and Mathematics are cohesive. By studying Mathematics, I have gained the skills which help me solve real life problems and such skills, more importantly, have been useful in the Science subjects as well. I analyze everything in depth and once I have spotted my goal, I keep on aiming for it until I succeed. Because of my interest in these subjects and some others, I scored excellent grades in O levels and as a result, I got 100% scholarship for my entire AS and A level course.

At school, I have participated in many extracurricular activities. I am a member of numerous clubs and societies, which include Science, Journalism, Music and Community Service. I am the head of the Mathematics society and my task is to design quizzes. I have a keen interest in photography and as a member of the journalism society, I have the responsibility for taking pictures at various school events. Because of the charisma I possess, I was selected as the house leader of the school.

Last year I received the Duke of Edinburgh Gold award for 4 activities i.e. social service at Darul-Sakun (home for special children), outstanding performances in soccer, creative writing (English) and for completing a project by working with the Agha Khan University Library as a volunteer. I am currently doing community service at S.I.U.T (Sind Institute of Urology and Transplant). I have also played cricket for the school team. In my free time, I go out for swimming, bowling and sometimes fishing, or I get involved in indoor activities such as chess or modeling kits, constructing plastic airplane models, in particular.

The reason I have chosen England for higher education is that I am aware of the environment and the fact that quality education is found there. Besides that, I will not have communication problems because my English Language skills are of the required standard. I have relished my school life and now I hope to be warmly welcomed by the more challenging, independent and competitive university lifestyle. Once I enter professional life, I would go the extra mile and will try to come out with a cutting edge over others working in the same capacity as mine. These small achievements in the ultimate analysis would give a new impetus to the corporation where I will work by galvanizing it.

This PS is bloody awful. If you got 4 offers you're very lucky as I took one look at it and filed you under 'pretentious wanker'
