Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name,
A senior at Tufts University earning a BS in Electrical Engineering, I am writing to apply for the position of (job title) at your (geographic) location. The areas of renewable energy engineering and efficiency interest me, and I believe my electrical engineering background will provide a helpful perspective on the energy challenges you’re facing. I admire (company name’s) commitment to track emissions and increase efficiency at all stages of production, and I am eager to be a part of the team that continues to drive these emissions lower.
At Tufts, I have maintained a 3.89/4.0 GPA in both traditional and project-based classes. One project was a research study involving room temperature plasma deposition for the creation of low cost solar cells. It was this research that led to my interest in energy sustainability from an electrical engineering perspective. Through my other coursework and projects, I have developed strong engineering and mathematical skills, including the use of powerful tools such as MATLAB. I have worked on several team projects that have developed my group oriented skills, and I am well prepared to collaborate with interdisciplinary engineering teams.
Thank you for your considering me for your (job title) position. I am reachable at (email address) and (phone).
Sincerely, Your Name
