I am writing to you to express my interest in applying for the masters programme in “Engineering Materials Science with particular interest in "XXXXXXX”, which is scheduled to begin August 2013. I appreciate this opportunity and I would like to provide further information about my personality and motivation. I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelors of Engineering in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering with a major in Metallurgy, from XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. I was ranked among the top five students with an average score above 75%. My professional goal is to be a foremost lecturer, Consultant and Researcher in the field of Materials Engineering with particular interest in Materials Selection and Process Design. My undergraduate studies of steel, lightweight metals, semi-conductors, ceramics, polymers and composites had exposed me to the reality and demand of my choice of career and have provided me with the rudiment, which I am optimistic this programme would augment greatly, to achieve my goal. My first exposure to the field of Materials Science and Engineering was in my Second year during my undergraduate study with “Introduction to Physical Metallurgy” and “Introduction to Chemical Metallurgy”. Having entered the university with no clear understanding or enthusiasm of what materials engineering study entails, my interest began to grow as I was exposed to several concepts and materials. The study of “Microstructure of materials” and “Phase Transformations” which revealed to me how the structure of a material could be altered to produce desired properties, triggered an irreversible desire for knowledge of material design and selection. At the time of graduation, my mind was made up to pursue a career in the field of Material Engineering and Science with respect to Materials Selection and Design, to the extent that I would be able to impact the in-depth knowledge acquired on others. I am a diligent, hardworking and resourceful individual with a penchant for...
