Dear Mr Knox,

Re: Chemical Engineer (REF: SDK93)

Having seen your advert for Chemical Engineer, I am writing to be considered for this role as my formal education, experience and strengths enable me to be very successful in this role.

I recently graduated with a first-class honours degree in BEng Chemical Engineering from the University of Surrey. Some of the relevant modules that I studied include; Mass and Energy Balances, Chemical Engineering Design, Industrial Chemistry, Engineering Systems and Dynamics, Laboratory Projects and Understanding Thermodynamics. Please refer to my attached CV for the full list of modules and their respective grades.

My formal education has given me a solid understanding of chemistry and its relationship to the production and use of chemicals, fuel, food, medicine, and other products. Additionally, as part of my degree programme I had to participate in numerous projects, presentations, demonstrations, lab exercises and other team working activities which have dramatically improved my people skills and ability to explain complex ideas to a variety of audiences.

I am particularly interested in working at UKC Refinery because of its excellent reputation in the industry. Your organisation plays a vital part in the refinement and distribution of chemical products, and I firmly believe that my contribution will be substantial and valuable.

I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my application further, and please do not hesitate to contact me on 0786 882 0371 if you require any additional information. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Adrian Oliver.
