Motivation letter for Erasmus Internship


Dear Sir/Madam,


I am an undergraduate student at the department of mechanical engineering of Munich Technical University in Germany. I am perusing my bachelor degree with double major, so I am also studying electrical engineering. With this motivation letter I would like to express my interest and motivation in doing a traineeship at Catalonia Polytechnic University in the Institute of Industrial and Control Engineering as an Erasmus student for this summer.


At Munich Technical University, I got 1.6 GPA in 200 ECTSs in mechanical engineering and 2.1/4 GPA in 20 ECTS in electrical and electronic engineering. This makes me among best 5 % students within department of mechanical engineering.


As especially interesting subject during my studies I would like to point out the System Dynamics and Control course I have attended during last semester.  The course has given me a solid theoretical background in control engineering and made me eager to improve my skills in this particular scientific field.  I think that Catalonia Polytechnic University is an excellent environment for reaching this goal. Therefore I would like to do summer internship, for which I believe it can help me to learn something new and broaden my skill set.


With this letter I would also like to express my intention to apply for this internship within Erasmus program. Thanks to the special cooperation agreement my current University has with Catalonia Polytechnic University I think this will not be a problem.


I believe that I am a quick learner, and I don’t give up easily when faced with difficult challenges. I like to think of myself as a cool-headed person who can keep his wits about him under pressure.


I have enclosed my resume and transcript of grades for your kind consideration, and I look forward to meeting with you and discussing my application in more detail if you believe that I am qualified for the internship program.


Yours faithfully,
