Sample Personal Statement for Master’s Degree in U.S.


Belonging to a family of medical practitioners, I have always been fascinated by the concept of applying my technical acumen in engineering to the field of bio-medicine. I found core engineering relatively “dry” and chose the field of bio-medical engineering for the excitement of working with living systems and to apply advanced technology to medical care. I feel BME is the only engineering discipline with “life”—thus, my keen desire to pursue a research career in this field.


I started my study in the area of biomechanics as a sophomore (while taking the course “Mechanics of Solids”), and ever since, I have single-mindedly directed my studies so as to gain knowledge in this career.

I took up a project to further my endeavor in the area of Bio-Mechanics and Rehabilitation at the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research (JIPMER), Pondicherry, India. The project “Comparison of normal gait pattern with that of pathological gait using the Electromyograph (EMG)” has given me a very strong grasp of the fundamentals of biomechanics. I have gained a substantial knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, and orthopedic biomaterials, which I tackled prior to this project. This has given me a great research potential and valuable experience with medical equipment, which I want to explore further by doing much more meaningful research work.

As a major in chemical engineering, I have a sound knowledge of heat and mass transfer, fluid dynamics, and polymers. Moreover, I have done courses in bio-chemical engineering and biology to prepare myself for research in cellular engineering (immobilized biomedicules and cells).

Thus, I would love to work on research areas in Biomedical Engineering.


Initially, I would like to go for an M.S. degree (thesis) since I still haven’t had full exposure to this field. After the M.S., I am going to pursue a Ph.D.

In the long run, therefore, I would like to pursue a career in post-doctoral research and tech.
