Hello all,

I am going to apply to Aalborg university and this is my raw version of the motivation letter. I would appreciate any help! Thanks in advance for your kind response!


Dear Sir or Madam:

I am grateful to have this opportunity to express my intent to apply for the Master’s program Global System Design.

I have chosen to apply for Aalborg University, because I really value its model for problem based learning (PBL). Very important for me is the teaching method and the overall friendly atmosphere at both the university as well as the country. Many of the programs offered are unique for me, because there is no equivalent at my home university. The dialog-based relationship between students and teachers is something very attractive. The guests’ lectures organized by AAU shorten the distance between university and industrial production. My eager to make a career in manufacturing industry was the key to apply to Master’s program - Global System Design. I believe that subjects like “Design of production- and logistics systems and planning and control of materials and capacity” and “Process excellence, Lean Six Sigma-philosophies and tools, project management and organisational change” would be really beneficial for my professional growth.

In 2006 I earned a Bachelor degree of Electro-technique from the Technical University of Varna, Bulgaria. The classes helped me to develop professional skills in Electro-technical materials, machine elements and automation of production. I have also obtained quite good understanding in Management and Marketing and Economics. I am confident that with my personal traits and a science background I would be well prepared for business as well.

In September 2009 I started the most challenging job I ever had. I was assigned as a production engineer in a contract manufacturing company, in charge of wide range of development and engineering services including the complete industrialization of new products. My responsibilities included the research, conceptualization, feasibility assessment, establishing design requirements, production planning and tool design, and finally production. I figured out how to manage a large team of specialists and workers from very different areas and educational levels. I also have spent time in many of our clients’ factories in Poland, Hungary and Portugal. This international background is something I really appreciate.

Even though is being eight years since I graduated from university I think this is the perfect timing to take my Masters Degree, with a strong background as an engineer and a challenging CV, I am sure about my goal as a professional development.
My restless nature inspired me once again by reminding the target of my life to be a significant asset of any industrial production. But this dream can only be true if I get my higher education along with the experience I already have. I think that by having a Masters degree from Aalborg university It would really be an added advantage and would also create a spirit of dynamism and leadership qualities from my inner self. I believe that you will find, I exhibit intelligence, common sense, initiative, maturity, and stability, and that I am eager to make a positive contribution to your university. I want to enhance my skills and polish my abilities by joining the friendly environment of your university.

In conclusion I would like to say that I like to take responsibility and to work as part of a team. I am eager to gain new experiences and in my opinion this program is the best way to achieve that. I am positive that the Aalborg University would be an excellent choice for an ambitious career.

Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to your positive response.
Yours faithfully,
