Masters in Engineering from a renowned international university is a dream, but for some, it remains a dream because of a lack of writing expertise. While applying for MS in Engineering, it is important to write an SOP that discusses your unique skillsets, achievements and career planning. But, most students are not able to write an impressive and error-free SOP leading to rejection. A statement of purpose is an opportunity to highlight your portfolio and cover loopholes by giving an honest reason. So, it is important to draft an SOP that is practical, authentic and engaging. Here is our sure-shot three-step formula that will help you ace SOP writing.
Three-steps to Ace SOP for Masters in Engineering
1. Make a list of things to write in an SOP
Making a statement of purpose for Masters in Engineering can be technical and confusing. Often a student or a professional is confused about what to add and leave. The question isn’t about good writing skills; it is about making an engaging yet simple SOP that makes sense. If you are planning for MS in engineering, think like a decision-maker and ask yourself, what do they want to read in an SOP? Making a list always works as it will give clarity and direction. Enlist your professional strengths, skill sets and c-curricular activities. Once the list is ready, make a rough draft of the SOP.
2. Research your program, faculty and university of application
The second step is to research. By now, you have a vague idea of the program or course to apply. It is important to research in-detail about the course, i.e. the subjects, specialization, faculty, internship opportunities, teaching pattern and the course outcome. Once you are certain about the course, shortlist the colleges and universities where the course is available and compare. Lastly, finalize one educational institute where you want to apply and mention why you choose the specific program and educational institute. Your research will give you clarity and confidence, which will be visible in the SOP and drafting the SOP will become easy.
3. Write and revise according to the guidelines
Once the groundwork is done, now is the time to make the rough draft. Remember, the first draft of the SOP is not the final draft and will need revisions. Before writing the statement of purpose, don’t forget to read the guidelines regarding word count, any specific question they want you to answer or about the tone or English. As a thumb rule, you mustn’t write more than 1500 words and use UK English if writing for the UK, US English for the USA, etc. Once the rough draft is ready, get the opinion of the expert and edit accordingly.
1. Fill the questionnaire
We have designed a questionnaire that needs to be filled by the applicant. The comprehensive questionnaire includes questions about family background, academic and non-academic information, work experience, achievements, course choice, university, etc. It’s like a written brief from the applicant to help the writers craft a well-structured and personalized SOP. Most applicants tend to miss sharing important information in the SOP, leading to an incomplete document leading to rejection.
