The proposed course is too theoretical in representation. You need real world or actual career applicability as part of the reason for your course choice. You have completely described the course outline and program qualifications, but you lack the professional reference to the applicability of the course. The choice of course has to be balanced between the career goal of the person applying and the academic benefits (with regards to career progression) of the course. Remember, theoretical references to the academic aspect will be useless without a career based application.

As for the university choice, remove the reference to the ranking of the university. The ranking does not matter. What matters are the perceived benefits that you will get from the university based on theoretical and practical training that you can receive. When you refer to the researchers from the university, mention some of their popular research that have been applied in the real world / within your career requirements. That would make a more convincing reason for your choice of university.
