Statement of Purpose
After four years of undergraduate study in Civil Engineering, I am completely satisfied with my choice to choose engineering as my profession as it has revealed the most down-to-earth method of tackling human problems. My enthusiasm coupled with scope for improvements and possibilities available within the discipline of Civil Engineering has inspired me to opt for higher studies and make contributions to the society through significant research. I honestly accept the idea of pursuing my graduation at Coventry University which will be a perfect step in my career.
My selection to major in Civil Engineering is an immediate end result of my desire to make contributions to the development of present day infrastructure in my country, aiming in the direction of enhancing its global status. Foundation of this lies in my youth admiration of my uncle, a civil contractor who I regularly accompanied for his field visits. During my each visit I witnessed the machines and relative methods, to which my excitement and inquisitiveness knew no bounds.
During the commencement of my Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering at Sahyadri College of Engineering, Mangaluru, I gained my preliminary exposure to Construction Management via subjects like “Building and construction material” and “Design and Drawing of Steel Structures” which opened my eyes to the modern day Construction Technology and Management methods. The subjects in “Construction Management” highlighted the significance of powerful crew coordination for task execution in high quality construction practice and uncovered me to various applications of Operations Research in Project Management.
In the third year of my Engineering, I acquired sensible expertise in the six-month industrial internship, during which I became a part of residential construction project undertaken by Mugrody Construction. Here, I took upon the venture of performing the study of testing of samples procured for mix design and design of reinforced concrete structures. Also i had the opportunity to perform surveying. In addition, I became exposed to the diverse factors of Construction Engineering and Management and interacted with the engineers that thoroughly inspired me and reinforced my choice to pursue my graduate in this subject.
At this point of my career, I understand that my undergraduate training has supplied me with a glimpse of this field and there is so much more waiting to be explored in this industry. Thus armed with valued consent of my professors, guidance of my seniors and careful study of your university websites, I am convinced that my educational profession will receive tons of exposure and enhancement allowing me to pursue my higher studies and excel at it. University’s prominent faculty, incredible laboratory centres and excessive reputation not only attracts me but also encourages on-going researches by talented faculty. My choice of this specialization is motivated by its multidisciplinary nature, so that it will increase my horizons and supply me flexibility in expert practice.
My undergraduate curriculum has enabled me to clear my basics; and now I experience the want to pursue refinement of the attained expertise through a Master’s course at the prestigious Coventry University. The rapid rising worldwide state of affairs in the discipline of Civil Engineering, and further more the first-rate of training and publicity of plethora of research work in UK supplemented with aid of my very own interest has helped me to give a boost to my selection to pursue graduate studies in UK.
My decision to apply for your university is due to the notable reputation of your College. In addition, your remarkable facilities also are major attraction to me. In my experience as a student, I understand that high quality facility can make a distinction in a student’s existence and learning. I hope you will grant me the privilege of pursuing my Master’s Degree in your prestigious University. I look forward for protracted and fruitful affiliation with Coventry University.
