The professor was a practicing engineer, and he always related the subject to real life steel structures he had engineered, for example, the SB Medical Centre, an all steel building with a base isolated campus. This is the kind of project on which I would like to work, designing the structure and considering how the building will respond to ground motion. After two quarters of structural analysis, I had come as close as possible to analyzing real world structures. Looking back I realize, I had learned great tools for structural analysis, but my "tool box" was still inadequate. I lacked a very important tool: finite element analysis.
I am applying to Department of Geology and Geophysics, Texas A&M University to pursue a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Geophysics starting in Fall 2014 semester. I am interested in Reservoir Geophysics, particularly in Rock Physics, AVO and inversion of seismic data. I am excited by the prospect of conducting research and developing my technical competencies in Geophysics, and I believe I would make an excellent doctoral candidate. My exposure in Reservoir Geophysics started since I took the “Seismic Inversion for Reservoir Characterization” class being taught by Prof. Dr. Ir. Sigit Sukmono, M.Sc.
During second year of under graduation I went for training in Public Works Department, where I had a practical experience about pavement design and construction. I was very keen on doing some research work in this area, therefore after completing my undergraduate I joined Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, to pursue my Masters in Transportation Engineering. It was only after joining IIT Kharagpur, which is one of the most reputed and highly selective institutions of higher learning in India, that I developed an undying desire as well as confidence to pursue a career in research in the area of Pavement Engineering. During my under graduation I have learnt only about basics of pavement materials and different layers of pavements. It was only after studying graduate courses I realized how limited my knowledge was and I need to work very hard and explore more in this vast field.
Pioneering courses such as Mechanics of Solids and Strength of Materials laid the foundation in Structural Engineering. I was further intrigued by Structural Analysis and Earthquake Resistant and Special Structures courses. I therefore decided to pursue my major in Structural Engineering and embrace it as my career option. In my senior year, I had the opportunity to lead a team working on a project titled ‘Analyse and Design of a Water Supply Scheme to a Colony’. We analyzed the source of water, designed the intake structures such as RCC ground level reservoirs, RCC over head tanks, planned a distribution network and prepared comprehensive cost estimation.
After two years working for Mobile Semiconductor, the only independent memory compiler vendor, I want to gain more knowledge in new edge-technology by returning to school. I have a passion of enhancing my professional career so I like to undertake some graduate courses in Embedded System at the University of Washington. This can keep me current with the latest technology in my chosen field and also support to develop a new area of expertise to further my professional career. I still remember when I immigrated into the U.S; there were so many obstacles I had to face in life and school. All of difficulties, including financial hardship, the barrier of language and culture had a critical impact on my life.
Everyday people are faced with tasks that demand effort and persistence. Many researchers find themselves collecting data on students in a variety of different contexts. Every researcher would like to be able to find large, representative, and highly motivated samples of students; however in reality finding such samples of students is difficult. Even in the most active assessment colleges there will be students that just tolerate taking different assessments rather than embracing them and trying to do the best they can on each one. In recent years standardized testing has been the preferred method of evaluating student achievement, however there is more to student learning than just performing well on a standardized test (Anderman 2003).
In the absence of an approved scheme and full working drawings, there is a difficulty to get an appropriate contract sum. In modified design and build procurement, the employer will appoint the design consultants to prepare and submit layout design to the appropriate authorities for approval. It saves a lot of times because the layout design is designed by design consultants and already get approval before appoint contractor. After approval, tender documents can be prepared based on approximate bills of quantities. When the contractor has been appointed, the design consultants can be remained for supervise the D&B contractor to ensure that he complies with the contract requirement.
An aspiring student must acquire a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering. During the course of the student’s college career they have opportunities to become involved classes that simulate real world projects. Some students can even obtain an internship with an accomplished civil engineer. After college, students must have a licensure before offering their professional engineering skills to the public. The top rated colleges for civil engineering degrees are Colorado School of Mines, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Missouri University of Science and Technology.
I would agree since there are lot of more entertaining things to do, but it doesn’t mean I would rather be happy now and procrastinate later. It all depends on how an individual perceives their environment to be on top of their class. If someone doesn’t want to attend class because they are better on their own that’s good for them, but it doesn’t always work. As long as they study hard enough to get the grades they want to see on their report card. A student’s dorm is actually for me, the one of the best places because of its solidarity with the other students especially on the students with the same field of
In an interview of Taylor Willis, he states, “Academically, I find success in getting the work done and getting ‘C’s on my work.” For some students, such as Willis, success can be found in just accomplishing the bare minimum of their work. However, an individual who is studious finds academic success in a much different way. David Williams states, “Success would be getting through something without struggling.” Individuals, such as Williams, find that accomplishing success without struggling will often result in achieving a high letter grade such as an “A” or a “B.” In doing so these are much different from their peers such as Willis. As a result, students often find success to be greatly different in an academic scene. Often, by achieving the best of their abilities will result in students finding
