Free Sample Personal Statement in Aerospace
My purpose for applying to graduate school is to both expand on my
existing knowledge and to create additional opportunities for myself in
the future. I believe that graduate school will prepare me for a
successful and challenging career in the aerospace industry.
Even though I have chosen dynamics as my field of specialization, I am
keeping my mind open to other areas of aerospace so that I do not limit
myself. I am currently working at JPL in an academic part time position
and I believe that this first hand experience will clarify my future
educational needs and directions.
While attending UCLA, I have had a number of part time positions, which
included being a computer consultant, AutoCAD operator, and a lab for
the Non-Destructive Evaluation Laboratory at UCLA. My diverse work
experiences have given me a better understanding of what opportunities
are available to me. There is so much that I would want to learn and
under-stand. I have always been fascinated with the space program, and
some day, I want to be instrumental in operating in the space program.
I have wanted to be an engineer ever since my father shared with me some
of his published engineering articles. I have always been a hard worker
and have shown that I can handle a diverse work load incorporating work
and college into college into my schedule.
I believe that UCLA can provide me with the tools to succeed in the
aerospace industry. I have enjoyed attending UCLA as an undergraduate
student and would enjoy being a graduate student here as well.
