Statement Of Structural Engineering

Decent Essays

The determintaion for seeking my future in Structural Engineering comes from my interest in Structures after I joined undergraduate studies in Civil Engineering at Kathmandu University. I’d found my interest growing already in Civil Engineering when I was in high school. I was following works of my brother while he was studying Civil engineering. I could understand and draw Plan and sections before I was got enrolled in undergraduate studies. During my undergraduate studies, I particularly enjoyed the subjects related to structural Engineering and material science such as structural analysis, RCC structure, and steel structures etc. Therefore, Joining the MS in Structural Engineering program at Lehigh University will help me to advance my career in Structural Engineering. …show more content…

I also enjoyed programming in C, C++, and Matlab. The Final year Project in my Undergraduate studies, which was a group project, was on the analysis of support system in Hydropower Tunnels in H igher Himalayas of Nepal. It studies the deformation of the tunnel, support interaction with rock mass, pressure on the support system, and stiffness of the support required etc. This project has proven to very beneficial to me as I came to know about the power of Final Element Analysis because of use of a powerful 2D finitef element software called RS2 (Phase2) for numerical analysis. During my Undergraduate studies, as a part of the course, I also interned at Upper Tamakoshi Hydro-Electric Project. This internship actually boosted my desire to choose my career path to Structural Engineering when I studied the plans and sections and work on the construction of a dam that was being
