The world as we see it today is a reflection of what the future holds. In the past, the need for faster and easier means of transportation made the Wright brothers to develop the aircraft. Question like “how, why” and so on as made great scientists and philosopher to make researchers and thus discoveries that answers the “how and why” questions that we ask every day. Therefore, it is our needs and the questions that we ask today that we determine the discovery and development that we make tomorrow to satisfy our wants.
Since the future begins with the vision we hold now, As a student, a God fearing man, and also a habitat of this wonderfully planet, I personally view this life as an avenue given to me by God to make an impact on the way of life of people, the way they perceive the environment and the world as a whole. A president of the United state once said in the Clinton foundation fundraiser for African children that” because he has refused to look away when someone was in need and refuse to assume someone else will solve the problem, he believes he would be able to help thousands of children in Africa get a future for themselves and their family. As a future engineer who is devoted in using the little period of lifespan he has in the most profitable way for himself ,his environment and the world as a whole. I believe that by not looking away from the problems facing the society and not assuming someone else would solve it, thereby viewing the problems as if they are my own, I would be able to better the life of millions of people worldwide. I have thereby dreamt of a future for myself. Have dream of my kids and their friends tuning to a TV channel, just to find their father being introduced as the man who changed the face of structural engineering in the world.
I dream of taking structural engineering to the level not imagined. I dream of a world where the less privileged people in the society won’t need to get a mortgage before they can build their own house because less expensive ways of erecting a structure has being discovered. I dream of a future where u don’t have to wait for a long period of time before u can be able to successfully erect a massive building because quicker and safer ways of doing such has being discovered.
I dream of a future where moving from a city to another wouldn’t bother people because there houses were mobile. I dream of a future where bridges move . I fink of a future where cities are built on water. I dream of a future where houses float. I think of a future where natural disasters and unforeseen events would not make many homeless because their houses would be able to withstand them. And finally I dream of a future where technology has taken its toil and life is at its easiest.
In order to make my dreams a reality,have taken my time t drawn a timeline on how I would love to make use of d little time that I av in other to mee my goals. After completing my degree in civil engineering and serve my youth service corp in a field I am most advantageous to my country and then getting a masters in structural engineering, then a doctorate degree in the same field. I would love to train and teach university students and also in the process do some research on aw new methods of building and construction can be evolved.
I would like to embark on projects. I would also like to join any sort of profitable fellowship all over the world so as to get ideas and information and also come together with fellow colleagues so as to c aw their knowledge can help with my projects h even field I will also love to practice a little on the field in other not to lose touch with reality. I believe bringing together the theories that have learnt, adopted, and formulated with my experience on the field, the result will be excellent.
I already have some ideas that I would love to build on, which include the idea of erecting structures with bolt and nuts. The idea that houses could float on water, and so much more. I believe with a little of opportunity if given to me, I would bring up excellent ideas and wonderful results. With all this plans and idea that I have, I believe that by the divine grace of God I would be able to make an impact on the way of life of people and the way they perceive the environment, there affecting the world as a whole world as a whole.
