I have always been fascinated by the nature of engineering, applying scientific theory to design, not just looking at the exterior of a machine but actually seeing how its interior workings allow it to function.
I have always jumped at the opportunity to study engineering to fulfil my curiosity, I took it as a subject at GCSE which aided me in designing an entirely new clamp from scratch, which I eventually produced as a CAD inside of Autodesk, however this only peaked my curiosity even more as I now understood the design aspect of engineering yet desired to understand the mathematics and theory behind it. So, to further develop this interest I took maths and physics as an A level, which I believe are both strong subjects of mine and will definitely prove useful.
All of this combined has strongly pushed me towards a career in engineering, especially in mechanical, as I always found solving a problem using basic theory satisfying, and studying it at university would definitely be my best area.
When looking at new engineering technologies in secondary school I realised that everything relies on computers, hence I was motivated to develop exceptional computer skills from then on. To achieve this I took computer science as a GCSE, which I obtained an A in, as well as take part in an ECDL course on Microsoft office to enhance my computing skills. I feel that with all of this combined with my A levels it would be a perfect combination for mechanical engineering.
Currently I am studying maths, physics and psychology as my three options, I feel like these are a great combination for what I aspire to study at university.
Firstly, maths is probably my best subject as it is the one I enjoy the most and excel …
