Describe how you will use your Purdue education to achieve your personal and professional goals.
Most kids in the world dream of becoming an extremely successful adult in a career when they are older. But what most of these kids do not know is how to get there. This is not the case with me. I know how I plan to become a successful member of society—getting an engineering degree from Purdue University.Purdue University’s engineering program is one of the best in the nation. I know that if I get accepted I will be challenged and expected to work at my full potential. I realize that to become successful, I will need to have a vigorous engineering program like the one at Purdue. If I were to receive a degree in engineering from this amazing university, it would satisfy my lifelong goal to become an engineer, allowing myself to have the chance of getting a better, more satisfying career than most others with the same ambitions as my own.The specific engineering program I would like to enter would be to obtain a degree in mechanical engineering. Purdue’s program has consistently been ranked among the nation’s elite and also is one of the most highly funded. I hope to have the opportunity to benefit from all of the programs at Purdue, such as the GEARE program, which would allow me to be able to study and work in a different country and fulfill my lifelong dream to study abroad. Elite programs like the GEARE program will help me to grow and prosper as a student. I also believe that the state-of-the-art facilities at Purdue will give me richer opportunities than those at other universities. In my opinion, Purdue University is perfect for me. I love the campus, the athletics, the student life, and most importantly, the opportunity to learn and prepare myself for a successful future in mechanical engineering.
