Dear Sir or_ Madam，
I appreciate that you can take time off your busy schedule to read my letter. This is a letter of my motivation to apply for the Master degree of Precision Manufacturing （MPM） at The University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland （SUPSI）.
First， allow me to introduce myself. My name is XXX. I’m a first grade postgraduate of Guangdong University of Technology （GDUT）. My major is Mechanical Engineering and Automation. I get my bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering and Automation at Wuhan University of Technology on 7th July 2011. After I graduated from my university， I worked in Jiangling Automobile Joint-stock Company for about 1 year. Then I took the Postgraduate Entrance Examination and was enrolled at GDUT at last.
There are some hearty reasons why I like SUPSI and the major of MPM.
Firstly， I am interested in MPM， for I have been studying in Mechanical Engineering and Automation since I started my university life. It’s well known that this major plays a foundational role of the developing of industry and it is easy for us to find a job. MPM， in my opinion， is a similar major with Mechanical Engineering and Automation. Exactly speaking， it’s the specialization and concretion of Mechanical Engineering and Automation. MPM in SUPSI based on a set of prominent and well balanced lectures that not only promote individual professional skills and cultivate their ability but also their creativity， management level and shape attitude. I think I can get more professional knowledge than I can get in land and extend my knowledge fields to enhance my competitive strength.
Secondly， SUPSI can offer me good teaching quality. SUPSI is one of the eight universities of Applied Sciences in Switzerland. The university focuses on education based on professional need and on applied research， and at the same time， it provides a practice-oriented education and offers a wide range of master’s programs. The educational goad of MPM at SUPSI is to shape new professional figures characterized by research and operate skills through an effective training path constantly merging research and education. For my part， I prefer practice-oriented education to pure research-oriented.
Thirdly， SUPSI can afford me a good environment to study. According to Global Competitiveness Report 2009-2010， Switzerland ranked number one among a total of 131 surveyed countries. It’s a reflection of a world-class capacity for innovation， combined with a highly sophisticated business culture. The country has a well-developed infrastructure for scientific research， with close collaboration between the leading research centers and industries. What’s more， the top-notch infrastructure， well-built education and health care systems as well as clean and beautiful environment all provide a safe， convenient， comfortable and healthy living environment for me to live and study.
Additionally， SUPSI gives a preferential tuition fee. The institution cooperates with our university. Due to cooperation between the Chinese and Swiss governments on this project， the fees are low. I think choosing to study at SUPSI can lower the financial pressure to my family. Furthermore， after graduating from SUPSI， I will become more competitive and enjoy a more positive prospect in future job market.
Finally， thank you for your reading again. I am seriously interested in studying at your university.
Looking forward to hearing from you and with best regards to you.
