I want to be a chemical engineer and establish a career in chemical industry, so I believe that graduate studies will help me to attain my goal. Thus, I have no hesitation to chase my Masters degree in Chemical Engineering. (POOR AND ORDINARY INTRODUCTION-REVISE IT)
Remember when I took part in orientation course at XXX University, and the chairman of department of Chemical Engineering told every freshman that chemical engineers are all-around engineers. He said that chemical industry is indispensable to our life. (TALK ABOUT YOUR SELF, NOT HIM. ) I was impressed of the talk, and I also developed a great interest in the field ( HOW YOU DONE STH. AFTERWARDS? TELL ABOUT IT. LIKE ı SEARCH ABOUT ) because I was amazed how we play much important role for mankind. Therefore, it motivated me to pursue a profession in chemical industry to create innovations by solving oncoming problems like energy crisis, pollution of environment, and global warming and to invent new technology like new applied materials, substitute energy, and recycling resources.
During my undergraduate studies I have acquired a strong background in fundamentals of basic chemical engineering subjects, the curriculum included transport phenomena, unit operations, chemical reaction engineering, and process design.(THEY WILL HAVE YOUR TRANSCRIPT TO SEE THE COURSES. TELL ABOUT WHAT YOU GET FROM COURSES, NOT ALL OF THEM BUT FROM THE SPECIFIC ONES) I got various theoretical concepts and methods which could apply in chemical industry. In process design course, there was a group project that we should design a chemical plant and use AspenPlus to simulate. That is a good start and great experience to realize how chemical plants work. (GOOD EXAMPLE )
I was also exposed to a broad range of areas in chemical engineering that I took many elective courses like waste water treatment plant design, petroleum refining technology, and polymer nano-composites. In my junior year, I did a thesis training under the guidance of Dr. YY, and I did a paper review in subject of polymer membrane applying to fuel cell. The work not only kindled my interest in the polymer field but also reinforced my decision to do research in graduate studies. In my senior year, I did my first research project in chemical processes laboratory course, the synthesis of modified polyimide, was aimed to modify the thermal and chemical stability, and mechanical strength of polyimide. The project enhanced both my research ability and experiment skill.
I am deeply interested in chemical engineering, so I aspire to pursue graduate studies to continue my education. It is helpful to accomplish my career goal, and I can develop my knowledge, gain ample opportunities to do further research, and be well-trained to be an all-around engineer. This constitutes the very motivation behind my present application for a M.S. Program from XXX University. Your graduate program blends high quality course and research facilities in every field. I am particularly interested in advanced materials, I hope to be involved in some related research at XXX University. The broadness of research done would allow me to pursue my interests in-depth and turn theoretical concepts to practical applications. Hence, I am strongly looking forward to receiving the best graduate education at XXX University. (IT IS MORE LIKE A CONCLUSION )
After completing my Master degree in chemical engineering, I know I have enough ability to be a chemical engineer. I will pursue a career where I can be creatively involved in problem-solving and invent advanced materials profiting mankind, like new polymer composites substituting for traditional metal materials. In long term, I have a ultimate career goal that I want to scale up the process in laboratory to build my own chemical plant.
Ultimately, I hope to do research in academia and apply the results to industrial technologies. I feel that a Master program in chemical engineering will go a long way in preparing me for a fruitful career development in the chemical industry. I am sure that your institution is the perfect place to begin my career on the cutting edge of engineering technology. A Master degree will give me the research experience and knowledge to be competitive and competent.
