It would be
difficult to imagine a world without these engineering miracles. It is able to
make what seems impossible into a reality. My
long-standing fascination with aircrafts began with my birthday present at the
age of 8 – a toy helicopter. Breaking up my toys in order to build
flying gadgets became my daily routine since then, it upset my parents at
first, but didn’t stop me after seeing my enthusiasm while in action. Growing
up only enticed me more to machinery and how they work. Thus my unwavering will
to pursue aerospace engineering is not merely a choice, but rather an ongoing
childhood dream. Engineers are the creators of our future, they apply
scientific principles to thousands of projects with the aim of making life
easier, their pioneering ingenuity has played a significant role in the
ever-changing face of technological advancement. This inspired me to become an
integrated part of this fascinating fast-paced world by studying engineering at
like to challenge myself, and see it as an opportunity to learn something new
as it appeals to the more intrepid side of my character. I have always been
curious about the immense intricacy of various mechanical structures like most
engineers. My passion for engineering stems from an inquisitiveness that has
fuelled many of my interests, in particular, I enjoy looking into the
functioning system behind many machines we use in our daily lives. For example,
when my computer broke down I would dismantle it and attempt to repair it. Of
course, I may not be able to solve the problem, but this has helped my understanding
of the circuitry and chips embedded in the computer.
My desire to study aerospace engineering stemmed from travelling.
After I have been visiting various technology related places, a scope of
engineering possibilities have been shown to me. Looking back into my
childhood, I always find myself interested in fixing machines. Puzzles for
older children and repair the family gadgets were my favourite entertainment. A
unique experience of satisfying my interest has been led when I understood the
working process of machines from cattle to spacecraft. When I attended my first
Physics lesson in secondary school, the borders of my imagination about how far
technology can go grew even further.
I have a strong interest and
ability in science and mathematics as reflected by achieving A’s or A*’s on all
my IGCSE exam papers. Moreover, I have attained three certificates in the 3rd
Annual International Mathematics Modelling Challenge, which shows I have the
academic mettle to handle this demanding course. My passion for aerospace
engineering was furthered during my A-Level courses in Physics and Mathematics.
These courses enabled me to gain a fundamental understanding of the nature of
engineering. I am confident that I have the necessary academic background to be
successful in the study of aerospace engineering.
Being the Vice-President of the St. Magdalene Social Work Club
requires strong leadership, as I joined the Social Work Club at the age of 14,
I have strong disciplined in my behavior and independent. Inside school, I feel
grateful to have the opportunity to be assigned to complete important tasks by
the teacher as they have confidence in me. Outside of school, an early
introduction to music was something I welcomed enthusiastically. I started to
play piano at the age of 5. Besides, I am a keen swimmer and have an interest
in yoga and meditations. Sporting interests have allowed me to have a break
from work whilst providing me with a healthy outlet for my spare time.
Aeronautical engineers are at the forefront of an ever-changing
world of technology and I want to be a part of the new technological
developments that change the world for the better. I believe that I have the
academic aptitude and creativity that will be necessary for a course in
engineering and I am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that
this degree course will bring. My abilities and experience would allow me to
adapt to university life well and utilise my time at university to shape me
into a part of the limitless world of engineering.
