I appreciate this
fabulous opportunity to introduce myself and support my application to the
Masters of Wood Materials Science under the faculty of science and forestry
offered by the University of Eastern Finland in Joensuu campus. This course is
my first priority because it is an exploring and potential subject. This
subject mainly is based on research and educational improvement.
Masters of Wood Materials
Science is one of the utmost useful and widely demanded subjects in the modern
world today. I believe a Master degree from a reputed Finnish university will
definitely prepare me for the future management challenges and thus open the doors
for my career objectives.
From my childhood, I
was always fascinated by Chemistry that is why I obtained sufficient knowledge
about the periodic tables, physical and chemical properties of the elements.
But when I admitted into science in Jahangirnagar University, Savar, Dhaka,
Bangladesh, I really astonished to learn about the forestry. One of my
favourite professor who studied Botany courses when I was in both first and
second-year student. One part of the course was about medicinal plants where
several type wood fibres are used in the production of pharmaceutical products
and textile industry for clothes. The
programme was a link between bio-based materials and renewable sources of
energy and it learnt how to make sustainable products without damaging forest
resources. On that time I achieved the basic knowledge of the physical
properties of wood and its chemical composition and how it could be used in
other major applications. Hence, I was really motivated myself to study the
wood materials and its chemical compositions.
My main ambition to
pursue a Master and PhD degree from the Finnish Universities. After accomplishing my desired degrees, I
want to be a researcher and establish my professional teaching career. To be a
researcher in this field was always my passion. That is why I choose this
university. I do believe that Finland has the best education system in the
world mostly in research-oriented degrees. Another reason to choose this is
that I am passionate to work in “Max Plank Research Institute” as a
I believe that the
Master of Wood Materials Science would help me to fulfil my goals. Because this
course will train me to the wood chemistry, characters of wood, physical and
chemical properties of wood and how it can be used a variety of bio-based
materials. This will also teach about the various applications of its fibres to
the industrial sectors, handcraft sectors, and pharmaceutical products in
laboratory field work. I strongly believe all of these characters are needed
for an active researcher that I would achieve from this well-structured course.
With my educational
superiority and working experience in the laboratory during my undergrad
studies, I confidently believe that I am a potential candidate for this
program. I have already completed my M.Sc degree in Zoology (Specialization:
Wildlife Ecology, Management and Conservation Biology) with a thesis course
about eight credits but the result has not published yet. I also finished my
BSc degree in Zoology with a reporting course from the University of
Jahangirnagar University. I have also associated with “Career Club”
in my university. During the study period, I involved in organizing seminars,
class representative and many social events. I believe that I have all the
qualities that require a pupil to complete an M.Sc degree of Wood Materials
Sciences in the University of Eastern Finland.
After completing the
degree, I want to apply my knowledge in this sector so that it can be a
valuable subject in future. Later, I want to continue PhD degree in this
sector. I believe that the university would provide me with the best opportunities
to create a new dimension in my desired career.
Thank you very much for
giving me a great chance to write about my career plans.
