I should like to apply for the role of Design Engineer as advertised recently.
As a qualified design engineer, with extensive knowledge of CAD software and an excellent grasp of engineering and design principles and industrial design, I have worked in several industries, the most recent being my current position in the electronics and consumer goods manufacturing industry, which is the area I enjoy most.
I should like to be considered for this position as I am keen to gain promotion to become a project manager specialising in the day-to-day management of engineering operations. I would like to move towards Chartered status so that I can develop into a more strategic role, planning, researching and developing new ideas, and streamlining management methods and I believe that this position would give me ample opportunity to achieve this.
I have been involved in researching and developing ideas for new products and production systems as well as looking at ways of improving the performance and efficiency of existing products.
Specifically, I undertake research, using mathematical modelling to work out whether new developments and innovations would work and be cost effective; design - turning research ideas into technical plans using CAD/CAE software; testing - collecting and analysing data from tests on prototypes; modifying designs and re-testing; reporting progress and environmental assessment - taking into account the environmental impact of new products and their manufacturing processes and how they would be safely disposed of.
I enclose my CV and am available for interview at your convenience. References are available on request and I very much look forward to hearing from you as appropriate.
