Subject: Recommendation for Fair Participation

Honorable Chancellor,

I would like to draw your attention to the annual Computer Engineering project which the Computer Engineering Faculty of this esteemed university undertakes.

I am pleased to inform you that this year’s Engineering students have put together a very impressive working model of a robotic tutor that can comprehend year 1 level engineering concepts and computations. The group comprises of students Mr. Rhett Butler, Mr. Damon Salvatore, Mr. Michael Corleone and Mr. Neal Caffery. All these students are currently studying in the first year of Computer and Science Engineering.

Hence, I would like to recommend that the students’ design is entered into the International Computers and Engineering Competition that is being held in November 2010 in New York. I believe that our students’ entry is a noteworthy submission to this prestigious competition where companies, as well as institutions, cover its prizes and recognition. It will boost up the morale of the students and give them exposure at such a grand event which draws talent from all over the world.

I look forward to having a short discussion with you and Dean Holmes who is agreeable to my suggestion regarding this matter and coming to a decision beneficial to students as well as the college. Our entry would certainly be a boost to our university reputation on the international standing.

Thanking You.

Yours sincerely,

Gregory C. Kennedy,

Senior Professor,

Computer Engineering Faculty.
