Personal Statement Program: Mechanical Engineering
I was born into a poor family in a remote mountainous village in Shandong Province. The untimely death of my uncle, who was very close to me, because of illness and poverty shocked me to such an extent that I once decided to drop out of the school and to help support the family. But my parents did not allow me to do so. Illiterate as they were, they nonetheless understood that "Education is the key," and were anxious to put this key in my pocket, in spite of all their difficulties. With the growth of age, I now have a much clearer sense of purpose for my life, which is not just to help one family, but to lift many more out of poverty and ignorance.
It was also during the lab experiments that I notice that most of the key equipments I used in the lab were foreign imports. Since the manuals that came with them often did not cover all the technical details of their internal structures, it made them rather difficult to operate. With this experience I began to realize that China is still way behind Western countries in the development of precision engineering. I wish to pursue a higher degree abroad, with a focus on MEMS, and especially on micro-mechanical systems. To my great surprise, I found that Arizona State University has a highly advanced graduate program in Mechanical Engineering, which will meet my needs perfectly. I have visited the web page of the university several times, and have some contact with Professor Ampere Tseng, whose research areas seem very attractive to me. Professor Tseng has in fact encouraged me to apply to its graduate program.
There remain some problems in the lab experimentation that cannot be solved with all the knowledge I presently have. For instance, how can we produce orifices smaller than those already produced with more refined precision technology so that we can observe their dynamic characteristics? To realize this, all the technical details of the system have to be taken into consideration. The system not only consists of the objects to be processed and the processing devices, but also consists of the working environment, mechanical and environmental control, training of the operating personnel, specifics of operation, and the fundamental understanding of the entire process. All those procedures must be properly handled in order to ensure the successful production of the smallest orifices possible, with perfect accuracy under the help of the most sophisticated precision instruments. I look forward to finding answers to this and many other problems during my graduate study at ASU.
Mr. Yin's talent in language and ability of solving problems are worth mentioning, too. Since our equipment was imported from other countries, most of the operation instructions hadn't been translated into Chinese by that time. Mr. Yin translated these English materials in his spare time. Because of his familiarity with the materials and his solid foundation of engineering, he solved a lot of problems in the operation of the equipment. For his excellent performance, he was praised by the teachers.
Mr. Yin is an active young man. He was enthusiastic about mechanical designing competitions, extra-curriculum activities and lectures on the latest development in the mechanical engineering field. All these helped him to advance in his study.
Having been to UNCC(University of North Carolina at Charlotte) as a visiting scholar, I know that compared with the development of precision mechanics technology in the US, we still have a long way to go. I take great pleasure in supporting this promising young man to study in your university. His sound foundation, serious scientific attitude and practicality give me confidence that he will finish his study successfully. I will be very grateful if you can give due consideration to his application for admission into your university and grant him financial assistance.唯一网址：https://www.essayquality.com/
