STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

After 4 years of undergraduate study in Civil Engineering, I feel completely


satisfied with my decision to choose engineering as my career option as it has
revealed most pragmatic and down-to-earth approach to tackling human problems
to me. My enthusiasm coupled with scope for innovations and opportunities
available in the civil engineering has motivated me to opt for higher studies and
contribute to the field through meaningful research. I sincerely believe that
graduation at China University will be an ideal step in this direction.

My decision to major in transportation Engineering was result of my desire


to contribute something beautiful and creative to the society, direct impact of Civil
Engineering on every individual’s life and importance of infrastructure for
development of a country. Foundation of this lay in my childhood admiration of my
friends’ father who was a structural Engineer and I used to be excited and
inquisitive whenever I used to visit him.

I am optimistic and hardworking and strongly believe in maintaining ethical


integrity in all my endeavours. My family maintains a highly motivated ambiance
conducive to academic pursuit. This has ingrained the desire of competition and
achievement and temperament of scientific inquiry in my character.

I had first formal exposure to structural engineering in course “Mechanics of


Materials”. This course inculcated in me the fundamental tenets of structural
behaviour which ignited my interest in this field. To strengthen my concepts, I
pursued courses on basic and “Advanced” “Structural Analysis” which enabled me
to do elastic analysis of structures using flexibility and stiffness approaches. Design
courses like basic and “Advanced” “Design of Concrete Structures”, “Design of Steel
Structures” and “Analysis and Design for Wind and Earthquake Effects” and
“Architecture Design” equipped me with adequate tools to carryout Load Resistant
Factor Design and introduced me to codal provisions.

I armed myself with the knowledge of basic transportation engineering.


These courses have given me sound grasp of fundamentals. Numerous visits to sites
enhanced my practical understanding.

I also credited courses like “Materials of Construction”, “Building
Construction and Equipment’s” and “Functional and Architecture Design of
Buildings” which inculcated latest construction technology and management
methods in me. “Construction Management” highlighted importance of effective
team coordination for project execution in quality construction practice and
exposed me to plethora of applications of Operations Research in structural
engineering. To keep myself abreast with latest information, I am regularly
referring to Construction Management, Urban Engineering and Environmental
Engineering.

In the previous years I have paved a way to shape my career but I realized
that undergraduate education has given me only glimpse of knowledge in this field.
My decision for Master of transportation Engineering is an effort to quench my
thirst of knowledge and contribute to field by positive research. From consultants
of my professors, guidance of my seniors and careful perusal of web-pages of
university, I am convinced that my career will be in best hands at your University.
Not only was I attracted by its distinguished faculty, excellent laboratory facilities
and high reputation but also by quality of research going on. My choice of this
specialization is motivated by its multidisciplinary nature which will broaden my
horizons and give me flexibility in professional practice.

The practical knowledge was really inspiring for me, when I was a junior engineer
with Peshawar development authority (PDA) in BRT project. Here I took the task of
Inspection of ongoing work such as mix design, design of reinforced
concrete structures. Also I had the opportunity to visit and learn about the
surveying. I was exposed to the various aspects of structural and Transportation
Engineering and I got the opportunity to interact with the Engineers involved with
futuristic activities that inspired me.

My academic pursuits have not however, prevented me from participating with


interest in various extracurricular activities. As team member of the Civil
Engineering Association, Technical Festival and Cultural Festival of district level, I
have enjoyed working in a team while planning for the organization's activities.

The undergraduate curriculum enabled me to clear my fundamentals; so I feel


the need to complete my Masters. The fast emerging global scenario in the field of
Civil Engineering, and moreover the quality of education and exposure to plethora

of research work in China supplemented by my own interest, has helped me to
fortify my decision to pursue Graduated study in China.

I am applying to your university because of the excellent reputation of your school.


In addition, your splendid facilities are also a major attraction to me. In my
experience as a student I know for certain that good facilities can make a difference
in a student's life and learning experience. I hope you will grant me the privilege of
pursuing my MASTER DEGREE in your prestigious university

All knowledge is in human mind; it requires only an awakening. Since I strongly


believe that your country universities would be an ideal place for me to pursue my
graduate studies, I wish to canalize my knowledge and make my life significant by
joining your university.
In conclusion I will add that MS degree is the most logical extension of my academic
pursuit and a major step towards achieving my objectives. I would be grateful if I
am provided the opportunity to pursue my graduate study, I am confident to justify
your faith in me.
