What subject is it for?? You need to show what you have done that shows that you have an interest in that subject, so include any books you’ve read about it for example.

I don't know if I'll be much of a help but a couple tips:

Don't write too much, try to keep it short and sweet. (I wrote around 1 page for mine)
Discuss any work experience you've done and why it's appropriate
Why are you suitable for the uni course you've applied for?
Try to sell yourself as much as you can
Talk about your skills/your attitude
Why do you want to do that course?

Ahhhh I get it, I’m not really a big fan of reading either but forced my self into one book for mine. There’s other things than just reading though like work experience maybe.

There may be stuff on this website to help as I don’t know much about engineering so I hope it helps.

i had no idea to begin with either, just write down some stuff you've done (not necessarily to do with Engineering), and work from there

The sort of thing you're looking for is work experience or volunteering if you've done them

I'd definitely recommend looking at reading a book or two about a particular area in engineering you're interested in, even if you don't really like reading, it's a great way to show you're interest in the subject, if it appeals more, you could look for an online course you could do.

The best thing is just to start off explaining WHY you want to study Engineering, and then go into why you'd be a great student to have on the course.
