Briefly explain why you are interested in engineering and particularly in the program to which you have applied.
Comment, for example, on your interests and abilities; your career goals; exposure to engineering through school-related and other experiences; and discussions you have had with engineers, teachers, and current or past Waterloo students. (900 character limit)
Almost everything around us is engineered, from the cars we drive around to the electronics we use daily. From a young age, I always had a passion for math and problem solving, because of this I competed in math competitions such as kangaroo and recently did the CEMC. In my physics classes, my teacher played a big role in my passion for engineering. Teaching and doing experiments about electricity and magnetism really intrigued me and made me want to further my education. Engineering is also a very hands-on job which leaves no room for boredom. My father and I together did the wiring of our basement, this introduced me to new concepts such as switches and what an overload is. As an Electrical engineer, I want to make a difference and tackle climate change problems and provide and help have a positive influence on society to make it a better place to live.

There is no real passion for engineering in this statement. Where is the pursuit of Engineering activities to help build skills in the field? Learning how to install household electricity and the lessons it includes is not the same as a high school student who has been passionately pursuing an interest in engineering through proper (formal) engineering activities training participation. The most interest presented here is an interest in Maths, which should not be confused with a representation of an interest in Engineering. The application statement is not applicable to the aspects of the questions and writing instructions provided. Specifically, there is no interaction with Waterloo alumnae who could advice regarding the interests of the applicant. The teacher point of view is so simplistic, it could apply to any subject, not just engineering. The student has not made an effort to actually respond to all the requirements. He only focused on one part of the application statement.
