In an essay of 300 words or less, write about how your personal or academic interests relate to your intellectual or professional goals.Legend
From a young age, my life has revolved around experimenting and creating. As a child, I disassembled toy cars into smaller components and investigated them. Often, to me, toys were not simply toys but vehicles of learning. My curiosity about physics had evoked endless "whys" in my mind and had driven me along in search for answers.
I frequently updated myself with the latest knowledge about science to fulfil my curiosity. It was eye-opening to learn about every wonder created by engineers. From ASIMO robots that could clean my house to hydrogen vehicles that are environmentally friendly to WowWee Robotics RoboPets that have been children's companions, the way these wonders benefited the society truly enthralled me. As I believed that knowledge shines brighter when used for the sake of the society, I set my goal to contribute as a mechanical engineer.
As an engineer, I would constantly research and learn, in hopes to improve human living standard especially in the medical field by creating medical robots like BRIGIT which is used in orthopaedic surgery. I want to specialize in the area of robotics, not only for my interest, but also because I see the prospects in this field. As humans' ability to handle tasks is limited, robots that work with a higher efficiency can help supplement the human force. I want to help maintain human health, not as a doctor but as an engineer who can help in surgery by developing more efficient surgery equipments to increase the chances for a successful operation.
Being in an excellent academic environment of UIUC, I will continue feeding my curiosity with knowledge. Equipping myself with the knowledge and experience I gain from UIUC, I will definitely be a legend who creates wonders for the world.Please help me with this essay. Are the supporting details specific and strong enough? I'm especially afraid that my essay would seem generic. And also please help me with my grammar, essay structure etc. Thanks!
