I am writing to express my strong interest in the position of the project manager of the project. I am a student at “Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal”, currently accomplishing my fourthyear in mechanical engineering.
Over these years, I have acquired fundamental technical knowledge which I was able to extend during a six month exchange at the French “Institut Supérieur del’Aéronautique et de l’Espace” (Sup’Aéro) in Toulouse, the first aeronautics school in France. I used this opportunity to gain insight into aeronautics, my main area of interest, and furthermore, to extend mypreviously acquired skills by accomplishing a research project in the field of Applied Mechanics at ISAE’s structures laboratory. Finally, I contributed in a project in flight system dynamics whichinvolved the verification of an aircraft’s certification with regard to its manoeuvrability and flight stability.
Beside my theoretical knowledge, I possess practical experience which I gainedthroughout an eight month internship at “Dassault Systems” in Montreal where I carried out Finite Element analyses on automotive parts using CATIA as a meshing tool. I subsequently elaborated procedures toincrease the mesh quality and its efficiency working with the ANSA software, eventually reducing the project costs by twenty percent. In the end, I provided training of the methods I had developed toother interns.
Apart from possessing technical knowledge in all areas of concern, a project manager is required to show strong social intelligence and communication abilities as well asdecisiveness and a sense of responsibility. Being a volunteer at the Canadian Red Cross, I have acquainted the ability to take decisions even under stressful circumstances as well as taking the responsibilitywhich comes with it. I have got used to the latter since my youth where I was a scout group leader. In addition to that, I have improved my communicational and organisational skills as member of...
