    Default Phd cover / motivation letter

    dear guys

    hi
    I need to submit a motivation letter for admission in a phd program. I am not that good in writing in english
    Could you please help me with perusing and correcting it.

    Thanks, here it is:
    "I am (Behrouz Yazdani), born and brought up in Iran, After completing my Bachelor degree (Electrical Engineering) from International university of Imam Khomeini, Iran, I was involved in industrial automation job for almost 2 years, then I joined a master degree program (Electronic engineering, Embedded systems) in Polytechnic of Turin, Italy. My working and research experience in the field of embedded systems has given me lots of confidence and insights into this field. Moreover, after starting my thesis related to testing area made me study all the basics and theory of dependability issues once again, which was very fascinating because after getting job exposure in the same arena gave me a good visualization power in the critical areas of the dependability and reliability like fault detection, fault prevention, fault tolerance design methods, etc. My recently accepted paper titled A Software-based Self-Test for online testing the scan chain circuitries in microprocessors also shows my eagerness to pursued my career and study in this filed. So, I have intended my mind to go for a research oriented degree and going for a PhD is the best option, since it would not only give me a details insight to the subjects of my interest but also improve my chances of future technical growth.

    My Scientific Interests:
    I have been recently involved in various related projects, so my current interest area can be outlined as, testing, dependability issues (fault detection, isolation, fault tolerance design and also investigating these topics over configurable systems), and designing robust and dependable adaptive systems.



    Research Project Plan
    Becoming involved in a various projects related to testing and dependability, I started to understand the immense potential behind the online testing technique of SBST. I strongly believe that there are lot of options either unexplored or under developed in the research arena of SBST and configurable systems dependability. I have a research plan related to dependability of configurable systems. I would like to lever the benefits of SBST algorithm along with configuration capabilities of adaptive system to achieve robust system again different possible adverse conditions.


    Reason behind choosing of the doctoral school:
    In the letter of motivation most of the universities want to know the reason behind choosing the doctoral school of that university. In my case, the first reason is the reputation of German education system and universities especially university of Oldenburg, But this is not the only reason for my applying into the School of computer science of this university. I believe that the blend of rich culture, technology and heritage of Germany will definitely open up a new world of opportunities and help me to grow personally, technically and internationally as well.
    My Future Plan
    After Completion of PhD program I would like to join a research library, which is joint to high-level industry in Germany. I also hope that someday I would be able to set up an excellent consultancy company, so as our future generation can produce quality research. I truly believe that getting admission and scholarship in university of Oldenburg will take me a step ahead in achieving my goals. Finally, I would like to thank university of Oldenburg for offering PhD program in the state-of-the-art areas in my interest area. Thanking you.
