Aerospace Engineering advice

salini
Q: Hi, I am planning to apply to aerospace engineering this year, and wondered if u cud help me begin my personal statement, as i am really stuck! Thanks.
Answer:

I think you need a very punchy opening line - something like:

I am at my best when analysing and designing solutions to problems.

This will then enable you to show off your scientific and technical knowledge, and get across to the selectors that you have had project experience, and some awareness of the kind of areas you will encounter in the course. You can make links with your A level subjects through quoting specific topics you have studied.

So try to find material on some of the following:

Solid Body Mechanics
Thermodynamics
Computer Aided Design and Manufacture
Project Management, Materials and Manufacture
Aircraft Design
Aerodynamics, Propulsion Systems and Flight Mechanics
Electronics

Make reference to laboratory/project work throughout. Stress that the degree course will give you highly marketable knowledge and skills. If you opting for a sandwich course, stress how much benefit you will derive from a year in industry. And ensure you stress teamwork - pooling your talents with others to design solutions to problems - hence my choice of the opening sentence.

There are about 100 courses in this subject, so select carefully. I am happy to look at a draft Personal Statement when you have written it.

I hope this is helpful.
