With this letter, I am
very glad to be applying for the Master of Science Programme in Hydraulic and
Civil Engineering offered at the Grenoble Institute of Technology. With my
current Internship on Garudeshwar Weir Project of Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam
Ltd, create enthusiasm within me with the scope for innovation and
opportunities available in the field of Hydraulic Structures.
It has motivated me to
opt for higher studies and enrich my scientific and engineering knowledge of
civil engineering and hydrology and turn my focus towards their wide-scale
research and application of water resource management. By reading the programme
description available online, I have found that the subject modules covered
will best suited for my prospective career goals.
I have chosen to apply
for Grenoble INP in International Master in Hydraulics & Civil Engineering
because it offers a multidisciplinary approach to the technical aspects of
water resource engineering from designing to modeling. I really like its modules
system of study. Modules like River Dynamics, Structural Design, Hydraulics
work will support my knowledge and bring me a stronger sense of implementing
projects. This programme will give me an ample opportunity to learn French with
its compulsory language module which enables me to manage my daily life, meet
new people and create real opportunities during my studies in France itself.
For me, the highlight
of this programme is the six months Internship with its more than 250 industrial
partners. It gives new insight into the course content completely and what the
industry needs. This will help in promoting my career to expand in this field.
Above all, Grenoble INP has an outstanding academic reputation worldwide and
have been lauded among the best in France.
under-graduation in Civil Engineering at Heritage Institute of Technology,
Kolkata, I gained my initial exposure
to water resource management through courses like Engineering Hydrology and
Water Supply Engineering highlighting the importance of effective practices,
applications and requirements of Hydraulic Structures. This area of study
inspired my On-Site Internship on a Weir project. Here, I took the various tasks
and learned the different aspects of this multi-purpose project but with my
limited theoretical knowledge, I find it difficult to understand the certain mechanism
and implementing my ideas to it. Thus I wish to learn and explore more
technical knowledge with its research depth.
Aside from my academic
background, this area became of interest to me through my involvement in
College Rotary Club and during my visits to the various drought-affected areas
across India with them forced me to realizing the importance of harnessing the
untapped waters of rivers for the survival of millions of people with
environmentally sustainable ways and this reinforced my decision to pursue this
course with its objectives and outcomes.
Moreover, I consider
this as a great opportunity to get in touch with French Culture and Education
system. I would very much like to spend my time in the friendly atmosphere of
the University as well as the City. This would give me a chance to deepen my
knowledge in the inspiring, creative and cosmopolite environment of one of the
best French Institute. Lastly, I am confident that my experience in France
would be extremely exciting, fun and valuable for both my studies and overall
academic performances so far and my longing to enrich my knowledge in Civil
Engineering, personal and professional experiences and as a determined and
self-motivated person, I am confident that I will be an excellent addition to
the University and the MSc programme.
Thank you for considering my application. I
look forward to your positive response.
