scholarship application essay
I am applying for a scholarship, please provide your comment on my following essay:1)What skills and knowledge do you hope to gain from your proposed programme of study?
My proposed programme of study is Food Technology which relates to the study subject recommended for my country "food security and Agriculture" as it deals with the processing, preserving and manufacturing of safe, wholesome and nutritious food products thereby making food available and accessible to individuals. As a graduate of Food Science and Technology, I acknowledge that I lack some practical experience in food processing technology which is why I hope that a Masters degree in Massey University, New Zealand would expand my knowledge in food technology and food processing and enable me gain more experience in research and new analytical methods. During my proposed programme of study, I hope to develop new skills in food processing technology and be able to suggest processing conditions for the manufacture and development of high quality food products. I hope to acquire an in-depth knowledge of modern food processing techniques and post-harvest technologies. I also hope to achieve skills in the research and development of new food products and processes and also gain an in-depth knowledge required to develop functional foods that will help to reduce the risk of developing lifestyle diseases. I hope to acquire problem solving skills and creative thinking that will enable me to recognize problems and their causes, and then proffer possible solutions. I hope to improve my communication skills through discussions, debates and practicing written and oral presentation of projects. Finally. I hope to demonstrate an ability to manage my time effectively and meet up deadlines.
