Alexrey Posted July 28, 2014 Share Posted July 28, 2014 I'm hoping to start sending a few emails to universities and profs in the next month or so just to touch base but, more importantly, to see if they are able to cater for my research interests. Currently I have a fairly (but not overly) specific idea of what I'd like to do as part of my Master's research, and I know my top choice will most likely be able to cater for it. However, I'd like to ask profs or admissions staff of other universities if they would also be able to facilitate such research. For example, I'm interested in doing research in a specific field of propulsion/fluid mechanics/combustion, so I'm planning on contacting profs in these fields, but they may not have specific interest in exactly what I'm hoping to do (but will have an interest in the general field). Would this be seen as something rude, where the norm is for students to read current research papers from each "professor of interest" and then align themselves with that, or is it okay if I ask them if they can help me? I was hoping this would show a hint of preparedness and assertiveness, but I'm scared they'll shoot me down then and there! blubb 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
