Dear Mr. Jones:
I am writing to apply for the R&D Product Development Summer Intern position, found on the
University of Pennsylvania’s PennLink system. I am a junior pursuing a Bachelor of Science in
Engineering, and majoring in Mechanical Engineering & Applied Mechanics at UPenn. With my
engineering coursework and project experience, my innovative mindset and affinity for problem
solving, and my history of successful team projects, I believe I am a strong candidate for this
As an undergraduate, I have balanced a rigorous course load and a number of extracurricular
activities that have allowed me to enhance my skills relevant to this role. Specific to
engineering, through my academic project work I have developed abilities in 3-D design and
modeling, an understanding of materials, and have practiced different manufacturing
technologies. For example, in my Machine Design and Manufacturing course, I along with two
teammates created mechanical drawings and designs in SolidWorks. We then modeled,
machined and assembled the parts of a working Stirling engine, meeting or exceeding all
requirements and deadlines. I have also developed the strong interpersonal and
communication skills required to succeed as the R&D Product Development intern; in addition
to academic team projects that require collaboration and strong writing and presentation skills,
I have been selected by my peers for a leadership role within Penn’s Formula SAE team this
year, and am an active member of our ASME chapter. Throughout all of my experiences, I have
used my dedication to efficient and creative problem solving and my ability to prioritize and
manage competing demands to positive ends. I am eager to apply my engineering knowledge
and skills at the Consumer Products Company.
I am very interested in interviewing for this opportunity and look forward to learning more
about your requirements. Attached, please find my resume for your consideration; it contains
not only a further description of my Stirling Engine project, but a more in-depth review of other
related projects and experiences that I would be glad to discuss with you. Please feel free to
contact me at (215) 000-0000 or by email at Thank you very much for
your consideration.
