Hi I am applying for erasmus mundus scholarship in Sustainable Transportation & electrical Power Systems and this is my motivational letter which should not exceed 250 words. Can anyone help to review and edit. Thanks
To reduce the high social and environmental costs of transportation in Nigeria, I believe it is important to invest in transportation systems that are sustainable and optimize renewable sources of energy. I aspire to study the development of electric vehicles and their incorporation into the global transport system, electric vehicle charging, smart grid integration and the evolution of the use of cleaner and more efficient sources of energy in transportation. This is why I am applying for the Erasmus Mundus Master Course in" Sustainable Transportation and Electrical Power Systems" with a keen interest in "Sustainable Transportation".
I have a BSc in Electrical & Electronics Engineering from Covenant University, Nigeria. For my final year project, I led a team of four that designed and implemented industrial and home automation systems which won the award for "Most Innovative Final Year Project". During the course of designing the project I developed great interest in areas of power electronics and electric power conversion.
The EMMC STEPS will provide me with the relevant skill sets required to excel in the exciting field of Electrical Transportation and Renewable Energy Systems, and understand future of global transportation and energy sectors. In addition, studying in Europe would widen my range of experience and give me a chance to gain world-class education, learn new languages, interact with colleagues from other countries and to make new friends. I intend to carry out my Final Master Thesis with the LEMUR project Research group at the University of Oviedo where I will decipher the best point of entry for the adoption of smart grids in Lagos, and the reshaping of transport systems in Nigeria on the long run.
