I am writing to you in order to express my enormous interest in Istanbul Technical University. Turkey has drawn irresistibly the attention and interest of me by its international standards of education, excellent support services for international students, high-quality world class education and colorful student life surrounded by various activities. All of which are proven by international student barometers as well as by university rankings. If I gain those circumstances that make it possible to be a part of that intellectually stimulating environment, I am sure my skills and abilities will be put to optimal use. I have an ambition and a goal to work for a top-notch company in the future, but I realize that an appropriate education is needed for demonstrating suitable skills and I truly believe that Istanbul Technical University will give me the required academic preparation and practical experience. I have always admired studying problem-solving subjects such as Math, Physics, Chemistry. I have chosen department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering because of the challenges involved in the application of scientific theory to practical. It includes those subjects which I am very passionate about. Graduation from engineering discipline will open the doors to the possibility to further dive into the interesting findings of physics and finally put the mathematical knowledge I achieved during school years. To acquire a bachelor degree from the Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering department in Turkish Institution will be an honor and a privilege for me and will play a significant role in my future career.
“Knowledge is power” – the main philosophy and source of my biggest achievements. My father who is specialized in Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering encouraged me very much with his stories about the work what he is doing as well as his experience during the visit in other countries. I have never failed at finishing/achieving my purpose, not because I am very talented, it happened regarding the fact that I truly believe that nobody else other than me could work on myself, so did I and as consequences, I obtained indispensable skills which called hard work and reliability. I have been studying English since I was five years old which have motivated me to start learning SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System). Having English as my second language did not stop me from aiming to be a good user of it.
I would like to mention about my hobbies too. I am keen on playing chess, fond of reading historical books. These hobbies are the significant contributors which help me to improve my mental and logical ability. I kept myself involved in different competitions related to sports, such as swimming and karate. I am so proud to highlight that I have a degree in karate. Also, I participated and secured the second position in swimming competition.
My passion to get deep knowledge in engineering sector made me apply for this bachelor program. I believe that the advanced training in the Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering program will help me to realize my dreams. Following this course, I see myself working as a professional engineer striving to work in various conditions, implementing the latest innovations and leading a competitive team. I am aware that studying towards this discipline requires strong motivation, hard work, maturity, the capacity to think independently and the ability to work as a team – the qualities which I highly believe, I possess. Communication with students from various nations undoubtedly provides a good chance to learn from different cultures, different study techniques. Thus, I am convinced that, through diligence and application, I will be able to make a positive contribution to Istanbul Technical University.
Thank you very much for considering my request. I am looking forward to your positive response.
