Electrical and Electronic Engineering Personal Statement
Having thoroughly enjoyed A level Mathematics and Physics, I would like to further my studies with a degree course that combines these subjects.
My Further Mathematics at A level course has helped me develop the confidence to tackle more chalalaging questions analytically. Whilst A level Chemistry and Computing have increases my basic knowledge in related subjects and will definitely assist me in future studies
I am currently interested in Electrical and Electronic Engineering which I have pursued through my work experience in London. During the summer I did work experience with The Cellular Investment Company. The company is one of the most successful firms working in the field of mobile communications in Africa, Far-East and South America. This was a valuable experience for the course at University
Both my parent are science/engineering professionals and they taught me some of the qualities needed for a degree course in the field of electric and electronic engineering. This has encouraged me to find out the opportunities available
Outside college, I am a very keen mathematician and have been awarded 2 gold and a silver awards in the last three consecutive UK National Maths Challenge, which is an annual event organised by the Leeds University
I have been a Millennium Volunteer for the last 8 months and I am currently volunteering at Rathbone, at the Merrion Centre in Leeds.
I send 2-4 hours every Tuesday and Wednesday helping people from all over Leeds to achieve all sorts of computing experience from GNVQ's to New Deal Diploma's
I have also just finished my second term as a tutor with Leeds United Football Club. I usually spend two hours a week at Elland Road, helping Key Stage 3 pupils develop their basic skills in literacy, numeracy and IT.
