When I was a young student, I was asked by teachers what I would like to be when I grew up. I always answered that I would like to be an engineer. At that time, I did not know why I answered in such a way. Maybe it was because I thought that engineers have careers that with design, logic, construction, and solving the problems and difficulties that people face daily. It is my aspiration to have such a career.
I had been enrolled as a student at the Engineering College, in the Electrical Power Department. I asked myself why I had chosen such department. My answer was that due to many difficult circumstances the Iraqi people have experienced, and the suffering of the prolonged periods of power outages, I have been dreaming of becoming an engineer in order to solve such problems and alleviate the sufferings of my people.
As a result, I joined that Department and I have been happy in doing so. After I graduated and was awarded a Bachelors Degree in Engineering, I began working for the Southern Iraq Electrical Power Distribution Company and we have executed many projects in areas that have suffered from shortages of electrical power or had no access to the power supply.
Furthermore, I have been working for the British Army in Iraq, which has enabled me to seize the opportunity of knowing how the companies of more advanced countries work.
I have gotten permission to be flown to Denmark since I had been one of the interpreters working for such forces in Iraq. As a result, I was flown into Denmark and have been awarded a 7-year permanent residency here.
Since I have arrived in Denmark, I have been doing my best to have my all dreams come true. The first step I have taken is to get my university certificate evaluated by CIRIUS, so that it has been certified equal to the Danish Bachelors Degree in the Electrical Power Engineering. I am now a member of the Danish Association of Engineers IDA. I have also spent my spare time browsing the campus of the different universities in Denmark, and I admire the University of DTU. This University has many excellent characteristics and it is regarded as being one of the famous universities of all Eurpoe. I also like teaching methods at this university. I see it as the professional kind that leads a student to becoming an innovative, thoughtful, and skilled engineer. Furthermore, I have studied the programme of the Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering and I have browsed the topics which are going to be offered in this field. I found it to be exactly what I would love to study and spend my life exploring.
My future plan is to become an instructor at the university level. I find teaching very interesting and would consider it wonderful to teach this topic. Perhaps I will even seek employment with one of the Danish companies to get more experience in this field.
I am presenting my request to you, hoping it will be taken into consideration. I look forward to attending DTU, which will help me fulfill my all dreams.
Good luck! It's people like you who will make this world a better place!
