Born and raised in the third world developing country like
Pakistan, in which very few are having chances to complete high school
education, and even fewer go to college to complete bachelor’s degree, I had
myriad of choices for opting my prospective career. Considering all future
demands, increasing globalization, and environmental issues. I got interested
in Environmental Engineering. Therefore, I chose to major in Environmental Engineering.
I am writing you this letter to express my interest in applying for master’s
program for Environmental Engineering at Peking University. I am keenly
interested to do quality of research in Environmental Studies and Engineering
and have a head for it.
Basically, I belong to a rural area of Sindh province,
Pakistan. When I was in college, I participated in number of scientific
competitions to enhance my practical skills and this encouraged my abilities.
It was my dream to be an Environmental Engineer and it has remained my vision
to do research to understand as well as resolve global environmental issues.
With rapid change of development, Environmental Engineering is gaining higher
attention. Currently, it is one of the most exciting and crux aspects like
other specialties’ in Engineering.
If I talk about academics then I am very good in academics. I
have got good grades in my matriculation, intermediate as well as in
undergraduation studies. I got my undergraduation education at Mehran
University of Engineering and Technology, Pakistan, has provided me with a
strong and a comprehensive background in Environmental Engineering and Management.
The curriculum included all the basic courses such as Ecology, Environmental
Chemistry, Air and Noise Pollution Control, Solid Waste Management, Water and
Wastewater treatment, Hazardous Waste Management, and Environment, Health and Safety
etc. In my final year of undergraduation, I have made prototype “Trickling
Filter” for the treatment of wastewater.
Having done my undergraduate studies in the best institution
of Pakistan, I would consider it my honor to be able to pursue my postgraduate
studies in China. The multidisciplinary nature of research at College of Environmental
Sciences and Engineering of Peking University, students and faculty from
various backgrounds and diverse interests enable the program to spread through
wide cutting-edge applications and theoretical concepts in Environmental
Sciences and Engineering. It will be certainly a new start to my own professional
academic and research career. I am firm believer that this program will not
only fulfill my passion and alacrity, but will also provide me with an
opportunity to be the part of highly technical research at CESE of Peking
University along with the industrial experience.
As far as my wish to get higher education in Peking
University China is concerned: it is top ranked university worldwide and having
great exposure in research work. Finally, I strongly hope to be laurelled by
being accepted at CESE College of Peking University as graduate student.
