Architecture tempt me with a hunger to explore how science and technology can be used to enhance the performance of buildings both socially and environmentally, it has brought out the dichotomy of my attribute,…show more content…
I had first formal disclosure to structural engineering in the course Mechanics of Materials. This course imparted in me the fundamental tenets of structural behavior 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 the elastic analysis of structures using flexibility and stiffness approaches. Design of Concrete Structures, Design of Steel Structures equipped me with adequate tools to carryout Load Resistant Factor Design. Laboratory courses helped me reinforce my fundamentals and reinforce theoretical background. Construction Management highlighted the importance of effective team coordination. I armed myself with the knowledge of Building Construction and Material and Building Services which inculcated latest construction technology. To enhance my knowledge, I have enrolled myself under/in online courses such as Mechanics of Deformable Structures, The Engineering of Structures Around Us, The Art of Structural Engineering: Bridges, and Elements of Structures offered by MIT, Princeton and other recognized
