My main focus is to get you to answer the questions in the exact way the examiner wants to see them as opposed to learning irrelevant derivations of equations. I will teach you what key words to identify in questions and their relevant assumptions.
I achieved 100 in C1-C4, S1: 97, S2:100, FP1: 92, FP2: 86... etc, I have been tutoring my class mates, my little cousins and anyone who has ever asked me for help. I focus on getting you a good grade without unnecessary theory/derivations
I am determined to become a part of the team that contributes to newer and more interesting structures that also care about the environment, utilise more innovative materials (e.g. FRPs) and are more cost effective. This is an imperative point in designing modern structures, as through various work placements a recurring theme I have encountered in all firms is cost: how to design a safe and reliable structure in the cheapest manner possible. Modern engineering has gifted us with bridges that can withstand tonnes of weight, railways that help transport thousands of people each day, roads which countless cars can smoothly drive upon, advanced sewage systems which help dispose of our humanly waste and much more. To study such a diverse topic and help leave behind a legacy is something which really appeals to me.
This year in Geotechnics I have found my greatest success, for example we were tasked with investigating the ground and groundwater conditions and thus assessing its suitability as a foundation for an L shaped car park to be built upon (grade achieved in factual report:87%); along with my experience with UNPS where I used softwares such as xdisp to calculate surface settlements for the Thames Tideway project further strengthened my belief that geotechnics is what I enjoy. Moreover there are very few structures which do not rest on a foundation on the ground, hence to further my learning in such a vital pillar of civil engineering really appeals to me. Elsewhere in my structural analysis exam which was articulated of moment distribution methods, failure criteria, Mohr’s circle of stress and strain, yield locus and more I felt as though I could grasp the concepts behind each method (grade obtained: 72%). Also mathematics is a subject I have always enjoyed as it allows one to work towards a solution that was not immediately obvious in the problem (Engineering maths and technical computing, grade: 78%). In addition I also enjoy learning about materials and in particular FRP’s and how different designs are suited to different situations e.g. fibre failing before matrix or vise versa. In contrast I also studied English literature at as-level, which provided me with an opportunity to express my creativity, whilst simultaneously improving both my written and oral communication; skills which are imperative for all engineers, in order to express their ideas clearly and efficiently
The manner in which I learn I believe is suited to your firm as I am the type of student where once I learn the basics I have little trouble applying the principles to more complex situations, e.g. I was taught how to analyse a simply supported on a solid foundation in first year. However in my internship at UNPS that very summer I then applied this knowledge to designing a beam which laid on an elastic foundation and hence created a proforma on excel; which was approved by my line manager and they currently utilise. In summary I am very aware of the excellent reputation of your firm and the research I have done with regard to some of your current projects has reinforced this reputation and hence strengthened my desire to attend. I sincerely hope I have been able to effectively communicate my genuine desire to succeed as an employee at your excellent institution in this short space and look forward to hearing from you.
