In an effort to bring brevity and clarity to this statement, I will forego the traditional introduction; please excuse this. I wish to fully use the space to explain my qualifications for engineering through my erudition, my social skills, and my home life.
Firstly, my passion for aviation began when I took a solo trip to Missouri to visit my cousins. Although I enjoyed trips, I mostly enjoyed the airplane journey. As I boarded the 737 Boeing aircraft,
In preschool, I was taught about many amazing machines that mankind had created. But, despite the X-Rays and the lasers that stood out to my classmates, I believed that the coolest machine was the airplane. Every since then, my goal has been to become an aeronautical engineer, or someone who designs
Up to this point, my hands on engineering experience is scarce. I am a member of exactly zero robotics clubs, I have taken apart exactly zero computers, and I have made exactly zero technical gizmos. One might say my experience begins and ends at the lego creations of my childhood (although I was more interested in destroying them than actually making them). I think my lack of experience is actually part of what makes me a great candidate for this scholarship.
Ever since I was a young child I have had great interest in the economy and the business world. I pursued this interest by studying Business Studies for 4 years from it being one of my options in GCSE to A-Level and I have enjoyed every moment of it very much, as it blends in with everyday issues, but I still believe that there is much more that I can learn. I am a determined, hardworking individual who always strives for success. I believe these qualities are vital in order to be successful in completing Business degree. I am a fast learn and I believe that success comes from within and that my approach and attitude to the subject will determine how successful I will be.
A highly motivated and hardworking individual, who has recently completed their A-Levels, achieving excellent grades in both Maths and Science. Seeking an apprenticeship in the engineering industry to build upon a keen scientific interest and start a career as a maintenance engineer. Eventual career goal is to become a fully-qualified and experienced maintenance or electrical engineer, with the longer-term aspiration of moving into project management.
Have you ever wanted to build, fly, or design an airplane? What about design or test a military missile? Are you interested in air or space travel? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might have what it takes to be a Aerospace Engineer. I like to interact with things that fly; like missiles, space shuttles, airplanes, and much more. This is the reason that I decided to go into Aerospace engineering.
“A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind, and touches a heart”. The Prairie Meadows scholarship would definitely help me pursue in my future education which will help me get to my ideal career of being a teacher. Becoming a teacher is my dream job, I want to be able to help people for the rest of my life.
I am getting my degree because I want to inspire others to explore careers and professions that quite often underrepresent people of diverse backgrounds. Many social, business, and personal products used today are typically created with a euro-centric type mindset and can neglect to meet underlying needs or wants of different groups of people. Studying Computer Science will allow me to use my personal identities and experiences to create programs that will be innovative in attending to qualities and entities that are often lost in the bigger
In 2000, Airbus Industrie’s Supervisory Board was making the biggest decision in the company history: whether Airbus should commit to develop world’s largest jumbo jet. At that time, there are only two major commercial jets manufactory companies: the younger Airbus and the bigger Boeing. Boeing had been at the forefront of civil aviation for over half century. Airbus was founded in 1970as a consortium and merged into a new company known as European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company. Airbus developed “fly-by-wire” technology and “cross crew qualification” technology to compete with Boeing in large jets (those with 70 or more seats) market. While Airbus was booked more than
As a mechanical engineering student at the University of Windsor, I have cultivated a unique set of skills that would be tremendously useful in the field. During my time at the university, I have designed and engineered machine parts using specialised software such as AutoCAD and Catia. In addition, working with a group
I’ve always loved math and science in school, no matter how challenging the class may be. The idea of figuring how and why things work, in addition to applying this knowledge and helping others, has always been appealing to me. I’m a very hands-on learner and my favorite part of my current Geophysical Science class is doing labs. Recently, my class made prototype wind turbine blades and tested whose would produce the most energy. My group made ours out of lightweight cardstock and wire supports, and came in first place. For these reasons, I would like to be an engineer.
I never dreamed of going to college when I was young. I am not from a wealthy family so the cost of college basically ruled it right out of my future. I was always a good student though. I love and excel in math related courses, the numbers just always make sense and there is always a right and wrong answer to every question. So since I was young I knew that is was math I wanted to do in my future.
Admittedly, aircrafts have made valuable contributions to the field of transportation. From childhood, I have been genuinely captivated by the intricate engineering behind the design of space crafts, space shuttles and airplanes. Aerospace engineers often encounter a set of unique challenges as they apply mathematical and scientific knowledge to design and build such novel inventions. Of all the A-level subjects, Physics and Mathematics have always been my best suits. In essence, Physics relates physical phenomena using simplified formulas and theories while Mathematics provides the basis of solving complex problems. In particular, I learnt and appreciated how to relate theory to calculations while studying Mathematics at A-level in the mechanics module. When combined, the A-level science subjects have offered me valuable insights into the field of aerospace engineering.
In a fast-paced working environment, aerospace engineers work with computers, process information, analyse data, and make decisions to solve problems. They can be found working at any corporation that makes planes, helicopters, missiles, spacecraft, and everything else that flies. The aerospace engineering field can be narrowed down to aeronautical
