Dear high rise buildings need a strong structural design

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am very glad to apply
for Master’s study in Civil Engineering. I am from Pakistan and I graduated
from University College of Engineering
and Technology Bahauddin Zakariya, Multan, Pakistan one of the top-ranked universities in the country, in
Civil Engineering with a Bachelor of Science degree program. After my
graduation, I have worked as Assistant Structure Engineer in a private sector
for one and half year, later I joined Nicon Group of Colleges one of the well-known
colleges of Pakistan in science and technology where I’m working as a lecturer
for BTEC Higher National in Construction and Built Environment, Design of Structure
with Autodesk Revit and also Project Management with Primavera.

My decision to major in
Civil Engineering is a direct result of my desire to contribute to the
development of state-of-the-art infrastructure in my country, aiming towards
improving its global standing. Foundation of this lies in my childhood when I watched
the documentary of world’s megatall skyscraper Burj Khalifa that structure fascinated me a lot and also triggered
curiosity in me how this high rise building can support such massive load? After
that, when I saw the structures like Empire
State Building and Golden Gate
Bridge those also captured my attentions. Besides
that, there was also a question in my mind how one manages everything to build
such kind of giant structures in possible short period of time? Thus as
far as my career was concern I had already decided to opt civil engineering for
its versatility in infrastructures.

. During graduation the
field which inspired me the most was structural engineering as, it was
facilitating me with the answers for my curiosity about mega structures and
this inspiration triggered me to achieve high grades in all structure core
subjects. Especially the topics regarding Steel
Structures, Prestressed Concrete
Structures and Construction Project
Management with their extreme research potential was at the top of my list
as, all high rise buildings need a strong structural design along with a strong
foundation design to safely support the loads and to transfer them to the soil
underneath. In Pakistan, where there is several kind of conditions like high
temperatures, freezing conditions, humidity, low bearing capacity of soil,
maximum chances of erosion and low wealth; structural engineering is one of
those rapidly evolving field which best suits the requirements for country
infrastructure development. My interest in structural engineering and the
practical implementation of this field forced me to work as an intern at some
mega projects currently running in Pakistan like “China–Pakistan Economic Corridor” which exposed me to visualize
modern design methods and contemporary construction techniques at site

At some point of my professional
career, I realized that my undergraduate education had provided me with what is
only a glimpse of this field and there is so much more waiting to be explored
and created in this industry but due to my financial position, I was unable to
pursue
my studies in my country or abroad. Since, I heard
about the announcement of your scholarship programme and with careful
perusal of the web page, I am convinced that my academic career can receive the
much-required exposure and enhancement enabling me to pursue extensive research
and excel at it through your programme.

As of my high interest
in structures and the courses provided by Budapest
University of Technology and Economics in MSc Structural Engineering ,
University of Debrecen in MSc Engineering
Management and Széchenyi István
University in MSc Infrastructural
Engineering. I want to study at any of these three universities with my
selected programme. Not only the Universities distinguished faculty, excellent laboratories with full
facilities and high reputation attracting me but also does the on-going
researches by eminent faculty. They will provide me understandable platform. I
am wishing to get expertise in these fields. In your university, I will take
part in field work and laboratory activities that provide me with hands-on
skills on analyzing complicated structures and solving their problems using equipments
and techniques typically found in the work place. I will do my level best to
excel within this department. My utmost goal is to become a valuable and
renowned researcher in the field of Civil Engineering

Considering my academic
performance so far and my longing to enrich my knowledge in civil engineering,
personal and professional experiences. As a determined and self-motivated
person, I am confident that I will be an excellent addition to the university
and the MSc program

I look forward to your
positive response. Thanking you in anticipation.

Yours sincerely,

Muhammad Imran Waris
