Statement of Purpose
I am (FULL NAME) from (exact location like CITYNAME, COUNTRY NAME).My area of specialization in graduate as well as PhD program in University of Florida will be Construction Management.
After finishing my school life I gained admission in Kuwait University to pursue my bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering. In that university I got opportunity to interact with great faculties whose remarkable instruction in Construction Engineering motivated me to pursue my professional career in planning, scheduling and construction management. During my professional life I have discovered that my skills and knowledge totally commensurate with the field of Construction Management. As a professional I am always interested in new methodology as well as technology, being used in sector of Construction Management. Moreover, my country as a petroleum supplier lacks good professional manager to carry out mega projects having potential of good earning for my country. So, I would like to help my country by contributing my skill and knowledge in the sector of Construction Management. This eagerness to gain in depth knowledge in Construction Management and to contribute to my country has incited me to pursue higher study from your university.
At the beginning of my professional career I worked with Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) in construction department as a Physical Planning Engineer 1. During this period I got exposure in small projects and my responsibilities were meeting with client to find their needs and to provide suitable engineering solutions; writing the specification and some part of the contract; choosing the best tender from the bidding comparison, supervising the project in the field etc. I took KISR's permission to work in Gulf Consult, a prestigious firm in Kuwait, for one month and I took "Exceed" as an annual evaluation in this department which was "Exceeding the expected work from the employee". Complete dedication to my professional career has not only given me a good experience in managing the projects and helped me to gain knowhow about system in Kuwait but it has also created the scope to see the projects from many points of view such as clients, contractors, labors and governmental authorities. On September 2013, I started to work as a Research Assistance in KISR – Energy and Building Research Center – in Infrastructure and Risk Reliability Program. During this time I got scholarship from KISR for pursuing my graduate i.e. master and PhD study .Following my passion in having knowledge and exploring new areas in my field, I took advantage of being a Research Assistance in a research center by taking many training courses in many topics related to engineering such as Statistical Analysis System, Project Management Professional 1, MS-Excel Advanced, Reinforced Concrete Design at Gulf Consultant, Asphaltic Concrete: Materials and Marshall Mix Design, Reliability and Risk Assessment of Structures, Advanced Concrete Technology, Design Reinforced liquid containing structure, Structural assessment of bridges. I participated in three scientific researches. I took "Exceed" as annual evaluation in this center. Lately I am working in publishing a paper which is about comparison between two type of interchange SPUI and diamond interchange. It is mainly concern about the impact of traffic in community and economic aspects. The outcome of this paper will help to perceive traffic delay, environment, cost, and safety. In my professional career I have also got opportunity to grow my skills like leadership skill, communication skill, working under pressure as well as to learn Engineering Software like AutoCAD, STAAD, SAP2000, C++ , Synchro 7.0, EverStressFE1.0, Primavera, PLAXIS, Crystal ball, Matlab, MS office etc. I have selected University of Florida because it is one of the top schools in Civil Engineering and well-known for excellence. This university also has many distinguished faculty members and state of art research facilities. I really appreciate work of Mr. in the field of . and I have similar interest in it.
I believe that my knowledge, skills as well as passion to reach my goals will help me to succeed in graduate and PhD program at your university.
