How to plan an essay
Essay planning is an important step in academic essay writing.
Effective planning can speed up the essay writing process, and give the essay direction and precision. As you are working through the process of drafting and writing your essay, you can record any changes you make on your essay plan, so that your essay and the plan develop side by side.
One way to start planning an essay is with a ‘box plan’.
First, decide how many stages there are in your argument – how many important points do you want to make? Then divide up a box into an introduction, one body paragraph for each part of your argument, and a conclusion.
Next, figure out how many words per paragraph you will need. This depends on the word count and how many paragraphs you want. Remember you need one paragraph to discuss each main point you are making. The introduction and conclusion are both usually 10% of the word count and what is left is divided into how many body paragraphs you have.
Let's use the following example: Discuss how media can influence children. Use specific examples to support your view.
Next, in each body paragraph box record your main argument, either as a heading or as your topic sentence.
Finally, use dot points to list useful information or ideas from your research notes for each paragraph. Remember to include references so you can cite each idea in your essay.
Remember, a useful document for essay planning is the marking rubric (also known as the marking checklist or marking criteria). This indicates what the lecturer is looking for, and helps you make sure that all the necessary elements are there.
- Essay plan template Use this template to plan your essay. This template also contains a structural plan, along-side the essay plan, to help you organise your paragraphs and keep your arguments cohesive. Sticking to the word limit allocated for each section means your overall word count will remain within the assigned limit for your task.

Writing an academic essay means fashioning a coherent set of ideas into an argument. Because essays are essentially linear—they offer one idea at a time—they must present their ideas in the order that makes most sense to a reader. Successfully structuring an essay means attending to a reader's logic.
The focus of such an essay predicts its structure. It dictates the information readers need to know and the order in which they need to receive it. Thus your essay's structure is necessarily unique to the main claim you're making. Although there are guidelines for constructing certain classic essay types (e.g., comparative analysis), there are no set formula.
Answering Questions: The Parts of an Essay
A typical essay contains many different kinds of information, often located in specialized parts or sections. Even short essays perform several different operations: introducing the argument, analyzing data, raising counterarguments, concluding. Introductions and conclusions have fixed places, but other parts don't. Counterargument, for example, may appear within a paragraph, as a free-standing section, as part of the beginning, or before the ending. Background material (historical context or biographical information, a summary of relevant theory or criticism, the definition of a key term) often appears at the beginning of the essay, between the introduction and the first analytical section, but might also appear near the beginning of the specific section to which it's relevant.
It's helpful to think of the different essay sections as answering a series of questions your reader might ask when encountering your thesis. (Readers should have questions. If they don't, your thesis is most likely simply an observation of fact, not an arguable claim.)
"What?" The first question to anticipate from a reader is "what": What evidence shows that the phenomenon described by your thesis is true? To answer the question you must examine your evidence, thus demonstrating the truth of your claim. This "what" or "demonstration" section comes early in the essay, often directly after the introduction. Since you're essentially reporting what you've observed, this is the part you might have most to say about when you first start writing. But be forewarned: it shouldn't take up much more than a third (often much less) of your finished essay. If it does, the essay will lack balance and may read as mere summary or description.
"How?" A reader will also want to know whether the claims of the thesis are true in all cases. The corresponding question is "how": How does the thesis stand up to the challenge of a counterargument? How does the introduction of new material—a new way of looking at the evidence, another set of sources—affect the claims you're making? Typically, an essay will include at least one "how" section. (Call it "complication" since you're responding to a reader's complicating questions.) This section usually comes after the "what," but keep in mind that an essay may complicate its argument several times depending on its length, and that counterargument alone may appear just about anywhere in an essay.
"Why?" Your reader will also want to know what's at stake in your claim: Why does your interpretation of a phenomenon matter to anyone beside you? This question addresses the larger implications of your thesis. It allows your readers to understand your essay within a larger context. In answering "why", your essay explains its own significance. Although you might gesture at this question in your introduction, the fullest answer to it properly belongs at your essay's end. If you leave it out, your readers will experience your essay as unfinished—or, worse, as pointless or insular.
Mapping an Essay
Structuring your essay according to a reader's logic means examining your thesis and anticipating what a reader needs to know, and in what sequence, in order to grasp and be convinced by your argument as it unfolds. The easiest way to do this is to map the essay's ideas via a written narrative. Such an account will give you a preliminary record of your ideas, and will allow you to remind yourself at every turn of the reader's needs in understanding your idea.
Essay maps ask you to predict where your reader will expect background information, counterargument, close analysis of a primary source, or a turn to secondary source material. Essay maps are not concerned with paragraphs so much as with sections of an essay. They anticipate the major argumentative moves you expect your essay to make. Try making your map like this:
- State your thesis in a sentence or two, then write another sentence saying why it's important to make that claim. Indicate, in other words, what a reader might learn by exploring the claim with you. Here you're anticipating your answer to the "why" question that you'll eventually flesh out in your conclusion.
- Begin your next sentence like this: "To be convinced by my claim, the first thing a reader needs to know is . . ." Then say why that's the first thing a reader needs to know, and name one or two items of evidence you think will make the case. This will start you off on answering the "what" question. (Alternately, you may find that the first thing your reader needs to know is some background information.)
- Begin each of the following sentences like this: "The next thing my reader needs to know is . . ." Once again, say why, and name some evidence. Continue until you've mapped out your essay.
Your map should naturally take you through some preliminary answers to the basic questions of what, how, and why. It is not a contract, though—the order in which the ideas appear is not a rigid one. Essay maps are flexible; they evolve with your ideas.
Signs of Trouble
A common structural flaw in college essays is the "walk-through" (also labeled "summary" or "description"). Walk-through essays follow the structure of their sources rather than establishing their own. Such essays generally have a descriptive thesis rather than an argumentative one. Be wary of paragraph openers that lead off with "time" words ("first," "next," "after," "then") or "listing" words ("also," "another," "in addition"). Although they don't always signal trouble, these paragraph openers often indicate that an essay's thesis and structure need work: they suggest that the essay simply reproduces the chronology of the source text (in the case of time words: first this happens, then that, and afterwards another thing . . . ) or simply lists example after example ("In addition, the use of color indicates another way that the painting differentiates between good and evil").

A good essay doesn't appear out of thin air — it develops from a plan. Essay planning is essential to ensure your essay is organized and coherent. Using a plan to begin your essay writing process will help you figure out your main idea , topic sentences, and details. Luckily, tried and tested essay planning sheets and templates can assist you with outlining your essay and improving your writing skills.
How to Begin Planning Your Essay
You need to take a few steps to begin planning your essay.
Decide on an Essay Topic
If your teacher didn't provide an essay topic, consider some questions, events, or ideas that you feel are important and would like to expand on. If they did provide an essay topic, identify keywords and phrases to focus on. You should strive to use these keywords throughout your essay and as a basis for your research plan.
Essay Plan: Research Your Thesis and Take Notes
Your teacher may have already provided you with some reference material or links to reputable sources. If so, plan on using this material to kickstart your research on the topic. Supplement this with your own findings as needed. If you're starting from scratch, use reputable sources to research your topic, and keep a list of references as you do this if you are required to cite your information. Some credible sources include dictionaries, encyclopedias, textbooks, and many websites with .edu or .org domains.
Essay Plan: Organize Your Research and Ideas
You can use a mind map, essay plan sheet, or other essay planning tools to organize your research and main ideas. See the essay plan sheet in the "Structuring your Essay" section for an example. Organizing your research and ideas will help you plan out your main topic sentences for each paragraph and the order of these paragraphs. You'll also use this step to structure your research into supporting sentences for each main topic. Write a concluding sentence at the end of each paragraph to summarize how they contribute to the main topic.
Essay Plan: Write Your First Draft
Once you've organized your ideas using an essay planning tool of your choice, you're ready to write your first draft. Use your essay plan sheet to form your introduction, the topic sentence for each paragraph, supporting details, concluding sentences, and your overall conclusion. Remember, your first draft doesn't have to be perfect.
Essay Plan: Edit and Revise
Once you complete your first draft, it's time to re-read, edit, and revise your essay. Use this time to cut out unnecessary details and restructure your essay. Here are some helpful tips to improve your editing skills:
- Print out your essay and read it out loud slowly. Listen for ways to improve the clarity and overall flow of your essay.
- Check for spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors.
- Ask a friend or schoolmate to read your essay and give you suggestions and corrections.
Structuring Your Essay
Because structuring your essay can seem daunting, the best way to help you is to use an essay planning sheet.
Essay Planning Sheet
An essay planning sheet (sometimes called a template) is a document that gives you some suggested categories to organize your essay topic and main points. These plans will help to improve your essay formatting skills. Planning sheets have different formats and offer different suggestions, but most include the following:
- Thesis /Essay Topic
- Topic Sentence
- Supporting Details
- Concluding Sentence
You can find free essay plan sheets online or create your own. You can also use a mind map or box plan to organize your writing. Here is an example of an essay planning sheet for a general five-paragraph essay:
Essay Plan: Introduction
In the introduction, you'll want to ensure you present your argument , idea, or thesis in this section. Do your best to start with an attention-grabbing hook or introductory statemen t that will keep your reader interested in your essay. Thought-provoking questions, interesting quotes, or controversial statements can be good tools to use in your introduction. After you have drawn your reader in, it is important to state your thesis statement (a sentence or two summarizing the main argument of your essay). Your order of topics comes last and gives your reader an overview of the main supporting points you will make in your essay. This will help your reader to follow your argument from the get-go. Improving the quality of your introduction is a skill that comes with time and is a crucial part of the writing process.
Essay Plan: Paragraph Structure
Each paragraph should start with a topic sentence that presents a main idea or argument that supports your main point. You should include at least three supporting details in each paragraph. These details should provide quotes from reputable sources, data, verifiable facts, or other information that gives weight to your topic sentence. Finish with a concluding sentence to summarize the overall argument in each paragraph.
Essay Plan: Conclusion
Writing an effective conclusion is an important skill to help your reader remember the main idea or argument of your writing. You should restate your thesis, main points, and key findings from your supporting paragraphs . Finish off your essay with your concluding statement . Similar to the concluding sentences you have created in your previous paragraphs, the concluding statement wraps up your essay and signals to the reader that you have completed your argument. Don't include any new information in your conclusion. This paragraph is intended to summarize and restate what your reader has already learned in your essay.
Remember, readers often remember the first and last few sentences of an essay more easily than the overall text. Use quotes, questions, or statements that will grab the attention of your readers and leave a lasting impression on them.
Essay Plan Example
Let's create an example essay plan using the planning sheet we previously discussed. First, if you don't already have an essay topic or thesis, take the time to choose one. For this example, we'll use the topic "intercultural awareness."
Your first step in the writing process would be to research intercultural awareness. There are many aspects to this topic, so it might be helpful to think of a question regarding intercultural awareness that you'd like to answer. A mind map can help organize your thoughts and discover what you already know about this topic. After completing your research and mind map, use this information to figure out your main topic sentences. Take the time to arrange these main topics in a logical order and ensure these topics relate to your thesis.
Now that we have our main topic sentences, we can use our research to add supporting details and form our paragraphs. Be sure to add references to the end of your essay if these details include quotes, data, paraphrased text, or facts. Once you've completed the body of your essay, you can flesh out your introduction and conclusion. Be sure to use attention-grabbing sentences and paraphrase your main idea and topic sentences in these introductory and concluding paragraphs.
Here is an example of a completed essay planning sheet:
Essay Topic: Why is intercultural awareness important for business?
Don't forget to add your references to your essay and cite them in the required format.

Study Plan for Master Studies
First of all I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to write a few words about my desired program and my future prospects.
I am Rimsha Nazir, a senior Chemistry student of University of Gujrat, Pakistan. I am braving my graduation in Inorganic Chemistry by the end of this June.
Introduction of my Academic Background:
I have gained sound background knowledge of Chemistry from my matriculation (Grade 9 & 10) with A+ grade and Intermediate education (Grade 11 & 12) with A grade. In 2015, I joined University of Gujrat, Pakistan in order to pursue my Bachelor’s qualification. Presently, I am in the last semester with the CGPA of 3.33/4. My major is Inorganic chemistry and I have also studied organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, along with others, as minor subjects. Chemistry has perennially appealed for me as it provides understanding of our physical world and is a subject of great diversity, scope and universality as well. I have done my Final Year Thesis Project on making and analyzing environmentally friendly Biodegradable Plastic using biopolymer (starch). My years of study in chemistry and have an interest in doing a research in developing new functional compounds and materials led me to arrive at the conclusion to pursue a career in inorganic chemistry.
My cooperative and friendly nature has won me many friends. My pleasant communication is a blessing indeed which brings homage to me. As a student, I am an active participant in my academic and extracurricular activities. I am a very motivated person with goal setting, time management and prior skills that help me achieve what I aim to. Apart from this I always feel enthusiastic to meet people belonging to divergent cultures. I like to hear their stories about their traditions and norms. The social gathering gives me the courage to cope with the various situations which may comfort me in new environment while studying inland or abroad. I have a creative soul and zeal to work in the field of chemistry or science. Thus I make both informative scientific content (images and videos) and humorous posts and by sharing them on social media accounts I interact with the people worldwide.
Study Plan in China:
I would like to apply for the Master’s Degree in Inorganic Chemistry because it is my ardent desire to study and research in an international field. I anticipate developing both personally and professionally from an international experience. It will boost me to acquire deeper theoretical as well as practical knowledge of my subject. The master program in Inorganic Chemistry will allow me to become immersed in technology development, for example, molecular electronics that allow electronic devices to grow smaller using fewer elements harmful to nature, catalysts that allows industries to produce more and pollute less, plastics that are lighter and stronger yet biodegradable. My research will be focused on the development of new and better materials for climate and environmentally-friendly energy technology.
The total length of MS program comprises on two years. Presumably, the time arrangement of MS program in Chemistry is listed as follow.
- Proper editing and formatting
- Free revision, title page, and bibliography
- Flexible prices and money-back guarantee
First Year of MS:
I would like to put forth my efforts by harnessing my capabilities in studying the core courses which will be based on descriptive inorganic chemistry, attending seminars and taking active part in all the discussions that will be held under supervision of my professor. At the end of the year I will start doing preliminary research and try to set my direction on research proposal.
Second Year of MS:
By the start of the year, I will finish my research proposal under the helpful guidance of my research advisor. Following my research proposal, I will carry out my research plan, perform experiments, analyze the results and make necessary modifications. At the mid of the year I will finish most of my graduate research work. Finally, I will concentrate on my graduate dissertation and degree defense.
My long term career goal is to become a scientific officer of Chemistry. After the completion of master’s qualification in China, I would like to return to Pakistan and wish to work in Atomic Energy Commission Pakistan so that I may achieve my goal of research work as a scientist and contribute myself in strengthening my dear homeland. Aside from this I would also like to take higher qualification and do PhD to become a Scholar Doctor in the field of Inorganic Chemistry.
Why do I choose to study in the China:
The experience of studying in China is more than just attending a school in a foreign country. With its cosmopolitan cities and small towns, China offers a variety of cultural experiences to international students. Bringing together different cultures, religions, people, lifestyles and definitely different cuisines, with its unique location. Also, Chinese culture and people are extremely diverse and multicultural, consisting of 56 different ethnicities. Being able to immerse myself within these culture and customs, I’ll visualize the world in a new way and making myself all the more open-minded while becoming a global citizen.
China is home to world’s top ranked universities offering a wide range of courses in all fields for all students and assures quality of education. The official educational certificates awarded by Chinese universities are internationally recognized because of their excellence. Graduates from Chinese universities are highly welcomed worldwide.
Another reason of choosing China is Pak-China friendship. China is a great friend to Pakistan and always sticks with Pakistan through thick and thin. As friendly neighbors, China always promotes Pakistan’s development and firmly supports Pakistan in safeguarding its independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.
China is one of the safest countries in the world and the Chinese are known for being friendly and hospitable to foreigners

Study plan help students to use the devoted time effectively to reach the erudition goals . The Study Plan Essay is key to open locks of self-improvement as it makes an individual tidy and liable for his actions during the devised time. For the learning activities (including the online courses) without tutors and a typical class environment, a study plan is what keeps a person determined to keep going.
How to Write the Study Plan in 2023?
The study plan is written by keeping in mind the sections of study objectives, study and experimental execution plan, literature review to support the study idea, a short summary of possible challenges with possible outcomes, funding estimation, and citations to support the research project in a Study Plan.
Study Plan Sections and Formatting
#1 Identify the study or research objectives
The research objective is the heart of the Study Plan that defines in one or two key points that what the student or researcher will do with their study project.
Research objectives are the expectations of a research project. The answer to research questions can be identified by identifying the research objective. It can be worked out to testify to the research hypothesis or for a scholarship application. The research objectives depict the steps that will be followed during a research project to meet research objectives. The research objectives can be identified by focusing on the study, measurable variables, indicating the research steps, and the limits of the research objectives.
#2 Identify Study or Research Challenges You May Face
The research challenges vary from field to field but there are some common ones that any researcher may face. The challenges can either be scientific, experimental, human resource, financial or they can also be due to the lack of knowledge of previously reported studies. Identify the specific as well as common research challenges to minimize the mid-project crash in your Study Plan Essay.
#3 Enlist Possible Research or Study Outcomes and Failures
It is the ethical responsibility of the study plan writer to enlist the possible outcomes of the research study in the Study Plan and provide a complete plan on the execution of the study to successfully attain the set study goals.
The possible research failures can be part of research challenges or they can either be more specific. The possible changes in expected research results must be enlisted first to avoid any inconvenience during the study. It will help to redefine the research structure timely.
#4 Identify the Time Required to Achieve Your Study Goals
After sketching the research objective, study execution plan, identifying the challenges and possible outcomes; the next phase is to identify how much time will be required for the study.
The allocation of a reasonable time for each step while writing the study plan is of extreme importance and it is advisable to include some marginal time in your study plan to avoid emergency situations. The time allocation must not be derived by the zest vibes as it will be very unrealistic. It must consider the possible restrictions and delays during the project. A well-crafted time schedule will make the process smooth.
#5 Create A Timeline to Achieve Your Academic Goals
Time allocation for each step will give a general timeline in which the project will be completed. This timeline will keep the motivations high and efforts focused.
#6 Support Your Study Plan by Including Pre-Research Report Summary
The pre-research report summary can also be called a literature review that supports your Study Plan objectives section. It consists of the work of other researchers that supports the current studies’ claim. Literature review develops the trust of the reviewer in the applicant’s research. That’s why it is an important part of any study plan.
#7 Write Down the List of Resources Required to Complete Your Study
Identifying the requirements is as important as restrictions. Both are somehow related. A good study plan for science students needs to sketch the finance, instrument availability, chemical availability, and literature availability. And for art students, finance and literature are among the resources that need to be collected for a successful project start.
#8 Write Down the Estimation of Funding Requirement for The Study
Most of the nice ideas and excellent study plans get rejected due to wrong or unrealistic funding estimations. It is highly recommended that if a project needs funding then the financials must be carefully estimated and quoted in the Study Plan for approval.
A nearly exact estimation of required finance for the study is a crucial point. After approximating the fund’s requirements, a proper plan to get funding is required. It might be possible to meet the financial needs of the work by contacting the ones who can have possible benefits from the study. The study plan may include a section on financial needs if necessary.
#9 Include Citations and References If Necessary
Citations of references of the used literature resources must be done carefully. There is paid subscription software that makes the process easy. Citation of references enhances the credibility of the work.
#10 Proof Read Your Study Plan Before Submission
Proofreading the study plan by the writer as well as a professional eliminate the chances of any mistakes in the study plan.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
“Study Plan Sample”
My academic background is very linear. I completed my School of Science & Engineering in 2011. Faisalabad securing 92.63% marks. Consequent to my excellent performance, I was able to get admission in Bachelor of Science (Electrical Engineering)at University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore, one of the modern and top-ranked engineering universities in my country. I successfully completed my degree in November 2017 with CGPA of 3.4/4.
Motivation for Further Studies
I feel it appropriate to mention here that in spite of having an Electrical Engineering degree from University of Engineering & Technology, why I have planned and decided to take up Master of Electrical Engineering. With the passage of time I have realised that promotional prospects are diminished without a Master’s degree. The salaries would increase rather slower; the learning environment is little missing then. The people having a Master’s Degree are more likely to get a better job, with better salaries. Bigger firms tend to be more receptive to internationally qualified candidates as they believe that they are proved to be better workers as they can show diverse skills at job. Thus, doing Masters from China means attractive commodity for the multi-nationals, better work-stations upon returning to Pakistan. I believe unless one’s personality is well groomed during studies, success chances are limited.
In Short, the evaluation of future growth, the dynamics of my personality, international learning environment, Master’s degree from a renowned institute, the consultation I sought from the professionals here, the financial support of my parents and passion to grow made me to take this planned and approved decision.
Why China for Higher Studies
I made a research regarding the foreign universities with the aim of selecting the most suitable destination for the study. I short listed four English speaking countries, which included the UK, Australia, Canada and USA. However, after careful research and consultation with my seniors and teachers, I decided to choose China. Chinese Universities impart quality education at a lower cost as compared to the world. In fact, China is a pioneer in the field of education. The education in Australia is generally recognised for conducive environment for imparting quality education. The faculty of the institutions is highly qualified and has extensive experience of research. I will have the opportunity to learn from expert and qualified teachers who will provide a thorough understanding of my selected field. I will be able to nurture academic skills which will inculcate in me the ability to learn and think creatively, which will be definitely an edge over my competitors.
Moreover, China s known for its multicultural environment. The Chinese have been known for their friendly and co-operative behaviour. Furthermore, China is one of the leading countries of the world especially in fields of science, business and information technology. The graduates of the Australian universities are working in top positions all over the globe. Chinese is a place which beside modernisation still preserves and holds many ancient cultures and civilisations including Aboriginal Culture. This exposure will bestow me an opportunity to interact with students from across the world and compare myself with them as a student as well as an individual. I’ll learn to work as a team, to communicate effectively with others that will help me a lot in my future life.
It is interesting to state here that courses with similar titles are offered here in Pakistan in public and private sector, but their quality of education and worth in the job market is minimal. It is partially owing to the provided quality of education, but there is also a psyche of our students as well as employers to rank the foreign qualified professionals higher than the locally qualified people. Very few institutes offering quality education in Pakistan have very limited spaces and their fees are comparatively same as international education providers. Therefore, one should make a wise decision of studying in Chinese to get international exposure along with highly regarded qualifications.
My proposed Education provider (Chongqing University)
There are plenty of options when it comes to choosing the prospective institute. After careful research, I have decided to choose Chongqing University. Decades ago, TJU started consequent to the merger of numerous existing separately-administered institutions with the aim of providing quality education to a sector of society. The vivacious, diverse and student-focused university currently boasts thousands of students belonging to multifarious fields of life. Furthermore, towards the Electrical revolution, TJU has been providing remarkable education. TJU is recognised for its exceptional efforts in information technology in quite a few perspectives along with worth-appreciating QS ranking. Additionally, it provides a unique approach toprofessionalism, combining the latest technological innovations with an innovative perspective that challenges its students to create industry-projects. It continues to lay emphasis on evolving technologies, industry rendezvous and flexible learning possibilities. It ensures that students acclimatise and progress with the passage of time. It delivers pertinent education to the students. TJU is still committed to the basic principles of equal chance, student-centred learning besides industry rendezvous.
TJU is internationally recognised for quality research which associates science and technology to the entrepreneurship and the community. Its ranking in numerous esteemed world academic ranking lists is a clear evidence of its commitment to superior teaching and research.
Since its inception, TJU has produced countless graduates who have been success stories in their selected industries which accounts for present graduate employment rate of over 12%. Latest survey results have revealed that 81% domestic graduates of TJU were able to get employment inside four months of completing their bachelor degree. Moreover, TJU is recognised for the best graduate employment rates in China.
I have found the course of Master of Electrical Engineering to be most appropriate for me as it has all the subjects I am interested in and which are necessary to excel in modern life. I have already gone through its course contents. The Master of Electrical Engineering is premeditated for students desirous of broadening their professional understanding and to assume studies which are expected to further fortify a selected field of EE. Consequent to up-to-date research as well as project work, the course is focused on the industry.
Through developing EE associated professional administration and communication skills, research methods and principles, and reinforcing a selected EE specialization, this postgraduate course will enhance the student’s associated undergraduate qualifications. Salient features of this course take account of the Project and Internship, which bestow the students the chances of gaining cognizance, know-how and acquaintances to the industry, while facilitating them in applying their skills, knowledge and techniques to resolve the industry associated issues.
The course aims at EE for diversifying their career and enhancing their present EE specialty through modern studies. Graduates will be capable of leading and applying innovative technical as well as management skills for the designing, procuring and maintaining the engineering projects.
The core courses of my proposed degree are Emerging Technologies and Innovation. In addition to these courses, I’ll have to complete elective units.
My current professional title is “Assistant Electrical Engineer”. In organisational hierarchy, a Network Engineer is a person who does not only manage but also ensures the security of networks. Therefore, after achieving a professional master’s degree in Network Security, there are very bright chances that I will be able to secure a position of management in IT firms. CPEC is also producing numerous jobs.
After completing Master of Information Technology course, I’ll be capable of demonstrating comprehensive knowledge and skills in professional practice related to Electrical Engineering. Also, I will possess cutting-edge knowledge and skills in Network Management. After completing this course, by applying suitable research principles, methods and research skills, I’ll be capable of planning and executing a research project in a pertinent EE topic. Furthermore, this course will facilitate me to contemplate hands-on issues and multifaceted problems related to Electrical Engineering.
After completing my course in China, I have strong intentions of coming back to my home country to achieve my goals for which I studied this course. The international graduates are warmly welcomed in my country and they have much higher rates of obtaining a position in a multi-national or government firm. Therefore, my Chinese qualification will help me in securing a top level position in National Transmission & Dispatch Company, Water And Power Development Authority, Water And Sanitation Agency & CPEC etc.
Graduates from this programme have the potential to secure job easily. As they study a wide array of subjects, they are welcomed warmly because of inter-disciplinary knowledge. What I am going to focus on is not only the salary but the better work places that are often the marked features of multi-national firms. These firms are more generous and welcoming to international graduates especially. As it’s an established mind-set among the employers here that unlike local graduates, the candidates with over-seas qualification have more potential. Thus, they are more ready to pay them the better salaries and opportunities. I am sure that number of opportunities will be waiting for me in Pakistan. I will be all the more delighted to serve my country with the knowledge that I will acquire in China to turn my dream into reality.
