Especially since my advancements and achievements in math and science subjects in school, engineering in general sounded like the right job for me. That’s how I found civil engineering as a career option. The job of a civil engineer fascinated me, and I could see myself working on a large-scaled building or project for the rest of my life. Throughout history, civil engineering has been influential to many and has been a very important part of human civilization. The profession of civil engineering dates back to ancient Egyptian times, and at that time, the words civil engineer and architect were used interchangeably, meaning that the words meant the same and were used the same.
Fascination sparks curiosity, often leading to manmade marvels, be it the Eiffel Tower or the Oresund tunnel that connects Denmark to Sweden. My fascination for the construction domain began at a very tender age, sketching vague drawings of houses or how fluidic cement paste when kept undisturbed for a certain period of time becomes hard as rock. Fascination turned into awe when I started school at the National Institute of Engineering, specifically my first visit to the KRS dam. The sheer size of this megastructure piqued my interest towards the civil engineering domain, motivating me to become a civil engineer by profession. Alongside a stringent academic schedule, the civil engineering department at NIE nurtured my request to undergo programs such as soil consultancy program, where I dealt with real
Each new concept put forth a new question but I wasn’t able to define it. Hence my journey began in search of those answers. I always envisaged myself to become an engineer, where in I could detect the problem just by difference in sound. As I was introduced to various theories & principles in physics, my inquisitiveness turned into passion. As I grew older, my childhood infatuation for machines flourished.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE “Transportation is a key which can open the doors to progress and stability.” Civil Engineering has always been a passion for me. As a high school student, I was fascinated by the kind of feats achieved by the Civil Engineers. From the high rise sky scrapers to the majestic bridges, from the complex transportation network to the simplest of roadways, it is nothing less than a marvel. However, it was not until the civil engineering projects were showcased on television that I became aware of the huge potential of this aspect. I understood that one of the key elements for a country’s growth and development is its infrastructure, especially
Also, I would like to engage myself in research where the waste product could be recycled into the manufacturing process and could be seen as a resource and not waste since most natural resources are depleting in the society and more wastes are being produced daily. Growing up as a child, the pursuit of knowledge has been my supreme goal in life. I believe that science and engineering are important factors in life and as such took a course in science during my high school education where my electives were technical drawing, physics, chemistry and elective mathematics. I got dawned to pursue materials engineering at the undergraduate level during one chemistry section where I was surprised to see that even though diamond, the hardest natural substance, and graphite, a very soft material, are all allotropes of carbon. This spurred me to research more on the causes of this disparity.
I always got some great persona with the indefectible understanding of science as my teacher, be it my school or my college. Acquiring knowledge from these influential teachers I scored 90.125% marks (topped in the class) in my 10th standard with 99% marks in science, which widened my road to science. Then I scored 86.8% (topped in the class) in my 12th standard with 92% in Chemistry and 100% in Mathematics. This huge marks brought me INSPIRE fellowship, given by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, given to the top 1% student of each state board. Even though I cleared very competitive entrance examination for engineering, but my thirst in Chemistry led me to take Chemistry Honours for my undergraduate studies with subsidiaries subject Mathematics and Physics in Krishnath College, one of the best colleges under University of Kalyani, India.
Mechanical Engineering is my passion I disclosed my passion in mechanical engineering when I was a high school student. I attended the first class of physics and I was so enthusiastic to discover the subject that most of the high students that I knew said it is complicated and Incomprehensible .The first class was strange to me at first due the fact that I had no idea about physics when I was in the middle school. For instance, my physics teacher in high school taught me the syllabus, but, I strived to make an evolution with my knowledge by reading books, attending workshops and watching tutorials about physics. Most of the mechanical engineers share the same affection which is love of cars. However, that love dramatically climbed my heart.
Mechanical Engineering is the core of all modern scientific development as it can help construct all types of machines, to reduce human efforts. I have always been fascinated with what mechanical engineering has helped accomplish, as engineers are able to build complex structures such as aircrafts and satellites. Physics and maths are two of the most important aspects of mechanical engineering and I personally enjoy pursuing these subjects and learning about atomic particles, kinetic motion, fluids as well as statics, dynamics and vectors in them. I am from India, which is a rapidly developing country where mechanical engineers can play a key role in developing my country as they can design various of machines and equipment that can be used in technological systems, buildings, vehicles etc. I have spent most of my life abroad India, and have seen various engineering projects.
Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated by the way how mechanical and electrical things work. Throughout school I have particularly enjoyed physics and maths and I feel these are important subjects I would like to explore more thorough Engineering. I had completed 16 years of formal education in 2016 graduating with a Second Class Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from Muffahkham Jah College of Engineering and Technology ranked as the No 5th Private State College and also top in Mechanical Engineering. This has provided me with the fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering. My entire education was in English as the medium of instruction.
My interest in applied sciences such as engineering finds its roots in my school days. Fundamental concepts of physics and mathematics always provided me with intellectual satisfaction. Study of such subjects expanded the horizons of my thinking. I was always intrigued by the way complex machinery is manufactured, assembled and put to work to form sophisticated systems such as cars, aircrafts and so on. This fueled my curiosity and inspired me to choose courses related to Mechanical Engineering discipline for undergraduate study.
