Aerospace Engineering Personal Statement
Aerospace engineering has fascinated me from an early age and that's why it has always been my dream profession.
One advantage I have is the ability to solve mathematical and physical problems. I feel that higher education will sharpen and develop my above skills further.
This subject will not only allow me to investigate new technologies but it will also give me the opportunity to develop and focus on one of my genuine interests.
My interest was heightened when I went to an army base with my uncle (base commander) and was shown and explained everything about the C-130, an old plane though but it was source of inspiration. After that I attended many lectures about aircraft structures and engines. These lectures have given me a good understanding of this course.
I have lived in many different parts of the world making me a person who can easily adapt to any environment. This has also enabled me to speak a total of four languages. These languages are Dutch, German, English and Urdu. I have also learned to be keen, conscientious, hard working and a reliable person.
I am also a good timekeeper and enjoy meeting people. I get on well with people and can work well either on my own or as a part of a team. Before shifting to the United Kingdom I was living in Belgium.
There I was a regular reader (still am) of many science and technology magazines, such as PC Network, which kept me up to date of the latest developments in the world of computers. I also used to attend an evening school to learn French.
I have worked in a departmental store for two years in part time employment. There I worked as an assistant manager, my duties included handling and banking money, operating till and giving other employees instructions. Here I learnt about leadership, realistic teamwork and financial constraints. I have also worked as a telephonist
My hobbies include reading, listening to music, playing sport and computing. The time that I spend on my computer is mostly performing experiments on it and providentially I have never wrecked my computer
I work out at the local fitness centre and I am looking for a good boxing club to join. I play football and cricket very often, usually in my spare time. The sports I enjoy the most are football and cricket. The sport in which I am best at is badminton.
