Mr. Justin Shaw
Robotics Startup
Chicago, IL 56789

When I discovered the electrical engineering internship with Robotics Startup on internships.com, I was excited by the opportunity to develop electrical and electronic design for autonomous robots and mobility platforms. As a junior majoring in Electrical Engineering at University College, I enjoy designing circuits and experimenting with new technologies. My academics, campus involvement, and volunteer work have prepared me well for this position.

  • Academics. After completing courses in Computer Aided Measurement and Controls, Circuit Analysis, Calculus, Physics, and Electronics, my Major GPA is 3.9.
  • Campus involvement. As a member of the Robotics Club, I have gained experience with hardware, data processing, sensors, microcontroller programming, and communication protocols.
  • Volunteer work. For the past two years, I have mentored a high school robotics team. In preparation for a Robotics Competition, the students build and program an industrial robot.

I have experience creating circuit schematics and PCB layouts. These skills will be an asset to this position and I would be thrilled to learn alongside your interdisciplinary team of innovators.

My enclosed resume expands on my academics, campus involvement, and volunteer work. As I prepare for a career in electrical engineering, I am dedicated to gaining practical experience to complement my coursework. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
