Dear Dr. ***,
I am writing to apply for the PhD position in the project “****”. Currently, I am a second master student in Electrical Engineering at University of **, and I expect to complete all my master degree requirements fully by June 2010. With a Bachelor degree in Communication Engineering and a post graduate degree in Electrical Engineering (EE), I expect that a PhD will push me to great heights and contribute enormously to my future career plans, while adding value to the project in which I will be a part of. During my undergraduate studies in Communication Engineering at University (**), I was mainly introduced to sequential structured courses, related to mathematics, electronics, information processing and telecommunications. Worth to mention, in the final year, I took part in the elective course “Digital Image Processing & Application”, which excited my profound desire to learn. As a result, I secured full marks in the course’s final exam. The course was just an introduction to the area of digital image processing, but was good enough to increase my interest in it. During my Graduation, I was recommended to the Graduate School of the same University to pursue a PhD degree without the mandatory admission exams. I took it as the first serious step on the way to my eventual objective as a successful researcher. As a doctoral student in the Institute of (****) at University (**), the coursework and research in my graduate study mainly focused on optical communication. In this period I participated in two projects of our institute, Namely, “***” and “****". I cherished those experiences, which explained me what a project really was and the importance of team work, which is vital for efficiency. However, I found that my research interest was still in information processing, especially in image processing and computer vision. So, I quit the doctoral study and applied for a Master Program in EE, at University of ***. Considering my academic background, University of *** offered me a special shorter program to obtain an MSc., in EE and supported my study with University of *** Scholarship . Here my academic focus is specialized in information processing and my courses so far have familiarized me with different techniques in information theory, image processing, and pattern recognition. The practical projects in my master program broaden my knowledge and mature my research ability. And further more, the institute provided a platform to present our ideas through various presentations and made us to write reports, which are not the common forms of examination in China. This increased my confidence levels and helped me to improve my Spoken and Written English. Looking back at my study at The University of ***, especially the time spent during my projects in (*&*) group, I have learnt a lot from the supervisors and other students. These aspects have made me a better communicator and more competent for conducting researches. So if you introduce me to this interesting and meaningful project in (*&*) group by admitting me, I am certain it will be a great and challenging opportunity for me to grasp and challenge myself to achieve great heights in a high quality R&D environment. Moreover, this project will make the early detection of the diabetic foot more convenient, reduce cost of the doctors’ examining efforts and benefit the patients’ life a lot. I realize that admission into this project is highly competitive, but I am certain that all my experiences and abilities would serve me a great deal in this group and project. Besides all, My personal traits such as perseverance and diligence will sustain me in this PhD program. I would appreciate an appointment with you to discuss my qualifications and the PhD position in detail.
Thank you for the opportunity to express myself.
Hi Mr. Blue. I have done my best to correct your letter in a short period of time. it was good. I dint have much time to look through it completely. GIve me more details.. so that i will have ideas.
I am not a teacher... I always wish to be learner.... student...
