'The best jobs' - Why I want to study engineering - Rice University


answers: 1
Rice is one of my top schools and I am really nervous about it. I would love some feedback on my essay! :)

In my opinion, engineers have the best jobs. They get to solve puzzles all day long, be hands on, create designs, and help others while they are at it. With an engineering degree from Rice University, so many doors would open for me to be able to change the world. Regardless of what type of engineering I choose to study, I know that everyday that I wake up and go to work, I want the opportunity to be creative and do what I love. I have an extremely strong interest in the arts and have been artistic since I was young. I am also very interested in the problem solving and research that is associated with the sciences. Engineering is the best of both worlds, as it connects both into a career and I would thoroughly enjoy. Being that I want to change lives as I study and work in a field that I love, I have narrowed my search down to biomedical and civil engineering. With a degree in biomedical engineering, I would literally be saving lives. I could design, create, and engineer medical prostheses, imaging technology, implants and a plethora of other devices to save lives. My best friend's mother recently passed away after losing her battle with cancer. Being able to create imaging devices or other medical technology would allow me to save lives of people like her and give them the opportunity to live - an opportunity that my friend's mother never had. If I were to go in the other direction and choose structural engineering, I could create incredible buildings with great, creative designs that are safe for use. Also, as the engineer, I could create buildings that use environmentally friendly materials in order to benefit the environment. These materials would also serve to benefit those who use the buildings. There are so many different ways for an engineer to help and change society. Whichever engineering path I choose to take, I know that I would enjoy every day of it.

To me/ In my eyes, engineers have the best jobs. They get to solve puzzles all day long, be hands on, create designs, and help others while they are at it. With an engineering degree from Rice University( I think you should just talk about engineering in general) , so many doors would open for me to be able to change the world. Regardless of what type of engineering I choose to study, I know that everyday that I wake up and go to work, I want the opportunity to be creative and do what I love. (Revise this, it's confusing) I have a extremely strong interest in the arts and have been artistic since I was young. I am also very interested in problem solving and research associated with sciences. Engineering is the best for me, as it lets me to chase my career while I can do what I like. Being that I want to change lives(whose life? you?) as I study and work in a field that I love, I have narrowed my search down to biomedical and civil engineering. With a degree in biomedical engineering, I would literally (I don't think you should use that word.) be able to save lives. I could design and create, and engineer medical prostheses, imaging technology, implants and a plethora of other devices to save lives. My best friend's mother recently passed away after losing her battle with cancer. Being able to create imaging devices or other medical technology would allow me to save lives of people like her and give them the opportunity to live - an opportunity that my friend's mother never had. On the other side, if I were to go in the other direction and choose structural engineering, I could create incredible buildings with great, creative designs that are safe for use. Also, as the engineer, I could create buildings that use environmentally friendly materials in order to benefit the environment. These materials would also serve to benefit those who use the buildings. There are so many different ways for an engineer to help and change society. Whichever engineering path I choose to take, I know that I would enjoy every day of it.

Please help me too! Especially on my what matters essay.
