Thoughts lead on to purpose, purpose leads on to actions, actions form habits, habits decide character, and character fixes our destiny.” Tryon Edwards


My decision to pursue postgraduate study in the Germany is underlined by my desire to be a part of …………………………. program at your institution. ……………….. offers the flexibility needed for such a vast and rapidly changing field. In addition, retaining high reputation in having superior standards of education and research activities with the opportunity to challenge myself has motivated me on taking …….. program in ………………………..


Education is a matter of affection with learning, so the fruits of higher education can be relished only when there is sync between the interest and the course content. Taking into account my undertakings so far, I am certain that ……….. program from your prestigious institution would be the appropriate course to realize my goals. ……………. is indispensable as it has modernized the industrial systems. It has also revolutionized manufacturing process and salved working of labours. Also, being an enabling technology, with vast applications in various fields it embarked my motivations for applying to ……………… course. It will be productive in acquiring advanced understanding of Control Systems, Process Automation, Power Converter Technology, and modern robotics technology.


“Nothing is Impossible in Life” has always been a motivating force behind all   my achievements. I strongly belief that enjoying what we do and having the passion to pursue, we can ultimately achieve our destination, no matter how much efforts are needed. From early childhood, I was very captivated with electronic appliances around me. I would ask my parents about their principle of working. I always tried to find out what basic elements and structure they contain that make them to facilitate human life. Therefore, since then, I had made my mind to opt for the electrical engineering domain. The enthusiasm to understand the mystery behind the design and operation of electronic gadgets incited me to enroll myself for undergraduate program in ………………….. at ………………………………., one of the most esteemed institutes of Pakistan. I remained a merit position holder throughout the academic years of graduation and ranked overall 3rd  in the batch. I also got academic excellence award in my school and college studies. In my adult age, I perceived that life for me has been a process of persistent determination and so I always tried to perform better in everything than I had done before. The most integral part of these consistent achievements is the work ethic assimilated into me by my parents, teachers, mentors and intrigued liking of engineering. This played a vital role in my decision for future.


My undergraduate studies at ………… not only gave me a certain skill set but also made me to further explore my field of interest and hone my academic strengths. During my undergrad studies I learned more about Automation & Control sytems, Electric Motor Drives, Power Electronics, and Industrial Process Control. Besides building theoretical concepts, I always enjoyed long hours in the Labs to correlate theory to practical observation. Also, working on projects throughout the academic gave me a sound technical base. But the greatest advantage of involving myself in these activities was to accomplish skills of teamwork. Moreover, my participation in E-Indus Project competition 2010, in which I ranked to be 4th , improved my competency level. In addition, I also got opportunity to present Demo & Lecture on Virtual Instrumentation for Control Application in IEEE@……… lecture series that furnished my presentation skills. Being passionate of research, I was co-author in an academic research activity titled “……………………..”, published in ……………………………… In this work, we presented the ……………………………..


As a Final Year Project (FYP) activity, we; team of four undergrads, were assigned to design, develop and implement a system named “……………………………………………..”, for the solution of an industrial problem. This in turn helped in grooming my problem solving acquisitions. As a group leader, my key tasks were to manage overall activities, Circuit Designing & Simulation, which furnished my skills to understand industrial Systems and managing teamwork. During my internship period at Siemens Engineering Pakistan Co. Ltd. in my 3rd academic year, I came to know work ethics of a multinational firm. Also, I learned how to perform troubleshooting , testing and commissioning of Energy Automation (EA) Systems. That was my great exposure with modern electrical devices used in EA.


Germany is a symbol of technical excellence. As technical skills and excellence cannot be achieved without excellent education, it is therefore a promising destination for higher education. The fact that many of Germany’s institutions of higher education charge little or no tuition fee by international comparison apprised me of the importance Germany holds in higher education. I also value the fact that many breakthroughs industrial practices have been originally envisaged by German establishments.


Pakistan is a developing country with an enormous potential in the Process Automation oriented business. Moreover to reengineer the existing and ever developing industrial units and more importantly to reduce human dependency and provide safety measures to manufacturing systems by designing  efficient and effective process automation systems are going to occupy utmost significance. Thus, conditions in my homeland are very conducive to supplement my aspirations when I will return after completing my postgraduate studies.


To recapitulate, it would be a matter of great pride for me to pursue my postgraduate studies at your renowned institution to gain many academic strides and contribute my part in the research area. I hope that considering my strong captivation to ………… and consistent academic achievements you will provide me the opportunity to be part of this rich interdisciplinary interface.

  • Unaiza

    I have been accepted at a university in Bonn, and now it has come to my knowledge that the German embassy also requires a motivational letter. I wanted to ask someone (if anyone has written one to the German consulate), how long is it supposed to be. No guidelines have been given. Also, should I talk about studying in Germany in general or should I focus on my university (that way I could just recycle my university motivational letter).

    • Hi ,

      congratulations on your selection in Bonn. It’s a wonderful university and city.

      Regarding the motivational letter , it doesnt need to be like the one you have written for university , just 1-2 paragraphs , on why you want to study the particular course , and why did you choose germany and your future goals.
