We live in day and age where technology and
engineering is advancing by the day at such a rapid rate, to contribute to this
and to be a part of this environment has always
been an aspiration of mine and something that I am excited about.
From a young age, I have been taught that further education opens up
many doors in the future as well many opportunities for myself
so I can become successful.  

Throughout my school years, mathematics alongside
science (in particular physics) has always been my favourite subject.
This is due to the fact that both mathematics and science, gives me the
opportunity to solve complex problems, think logically and to put equations in
to perspective. I passed my GCSEs at Forge Valley secondary school in
the year 2015. I studied Maths, English Language, Literature, Geography,
Religious studies, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, German and
product design. I am a hardworking individual who has a positive attitude
in the activities I do both at home and in school. At secondary
school, I was elected to be a prefect and I enjoyed working in a
team. My role as a prefect was to ensure that rules set by staff were
implemented as well as carrying out duties such as monitoring the
behaviour of students.  This shows that I have leadership skills and good
communication skills. In year 9, I was sent a letter of praise by
the assistant head teacher, who recognised my hard work and
dedication throughout that year. The Assistant head
teacher described me as “an exemplary student” and
“an asset to the school”. In the year of 2013, I was awarded
with the “Student of the year” award which
was exclusively handed to me by the head teacher at that time.

Since I started secondary school, I have been closely
observing and helping my father who is a qualified electrician, plumber and an
all-round construction worker. I really enjoyed working with my father as
this gave me the ability to manage my time correctly and also to
meet and communicate with customers and different people. As a result of
this, I have taught myself how to test various electrical components of a car
such as a battery, Sparkplugs and high tension leads. I
am always keen to learn new things that can further increase my knowledge
of electrical engineering even more. From this, I have gained
knowledge of how things function and this has helped me whilst doing this
electrical engineering course at college. I have experience in the
following jobs: Basic Electrical Installation, Drainage
systems, soldering and building basic circuits. 

I am currently studying BTEC level 3 Electrical &
Electronic Engineering extended diploma at Sheffield College. I feel that
I am progressing at a fast pace and I really enjoy learning how
different components work and how they behave in an electrical circuit. 

The reason why I want to do this course is
due to the fact that I have a strong interest in this field of engineering as
some of it relates to what I do in my spare time. I really enjoy
learning new information so I can widen my general knowledge. I strongly
believe you can never know everything and I believe there are always gaps in
people’s knowledge. 


 I also like playing football with my
friends after College as well as running. This gives me the opportunity to
engage with new people as well as making new friends. In addition to this, in
my spare time I enjoy going to the gym in order to keep fit and
healthy. Overtime, I have been able to develop useful skills so that
I am able to implement them in my chosen course
at University such as problem solving, Organising my time and
Teamwork. I
am looking for a university course that is challenging yet rewarding and
in my opinion I believe electrical and electronic engineering is the one. 

 For these reasons,
this is why I think I will be suitable for Electrical Engineering
at University.
