Sample cover letter for Internship position at BAE


Applied Intelligence

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to apply for the Mechanical Engineering 12 month placement in applied intelligence at BAE Systems at London or Guildford.

A placement at BAE Systems would mean frequent interactions with clients and senior staff and I feel that I would be able to further improve my interpersonal skills such as communication and teamwork. One of the reasons why I chose to study mechanical engineering was that I firmly believe it will be able to take me to the forefront of latest technology to use in solving problems, a placement at BAE Systems would allow me to do just that.

I am currently in my second year of study for a MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of ...... and I am on track to get a first class honours degree when I graduate having already gained a 1st in my first year of the degree.

From my enclosed CV you can see that I have prior experience to which I could draw upon during my placement such as:

An IMechE accredited degree with modules including mathematics, fluid dynamics, design and electronic instrumentation.

Extensive knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and working knowledge of Solid Edge ST7, Multisim & Ansys. I also have knowledge of other computer packages like Adobe Photoshop which I have learnt in my spare time.

Currently employed on a zero-hour contract for Blackjack Promotions working flexible shifts which often entails working at unsociable hours.

Strong interpersonal skills developed through my interests in and outside of University.

As an enthusiastic and energetic candidate, I look forward to beginning my career BAE Systems and thank you for your time and consideration of this application as I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
