Today construction projects require exhaustive planning for an on-time delivery of the project; also the contingencies are taken in to account for a smooth operation. Therefore, I would like to pursue a Masters’ degree in Project Management with concentration on Construction Management to use managerial skills with a sound knowledge of civil engineering so that I can plan the on-site progress judiciously by optimizing the resources used. The concepts of construction management are rarely used in India as people working in the industry are sort of dogmatic and reluctant to accept any change or new technology. I as a future engineer would really like to change this scenario in my country. Moreover, I also believe that one can work more productively if he/she remains engaged with the younger generation. In fact, it would be great for me if I can open up new schools or colleges or at least research laboratories so that I can work with all the dedication and energy that I have for providing education.
One of the basic reasons I am applying to the United States is its recognition for its restlessness journey towards excellence since decades. Northeastern University is emerging as one of USA’s truly great universities as its remarkable growth in student numbers, new courses, new campuses, infrastructure, and reputation. Northeastern’s MSPM degree program has earned credits internationally for the quality of its teaching, research, and service activities since 1898 – when it started. No doubt, MSPM attracts top-notch graduate students because of its remarkable course curriculum and superb faculty backgrounds. Moreover, experiential learning at Work, experiential network (XN), full-time co-op opportunities, best quality education, personal and professional improvement opportunities, and the diverse and assorted student population are the factors which motivate me to choose your Northeastern University, for graduate studies. Even my university professors also recommended me to go for MSPM of Northeastern. Moreover, I am keen to work under Mr. Jacques Alexis whose research interests such as business-driven economic development, process optimization, team behavior, project organizational success, and project management are something I can relate to and this fascinates me. I would like to take with me, in addition to knowledge of project management, a network of strong and lasting relationships with my teachers and fellow students. With this, I am excited to have that journey which is dedicated to producing responsible graduates with the management and technical skills requisite for advanced leadership positions in the construction industry.
With this vision of serving the society and aspirations of being a reputed Civil Engineer, I am looking forward to earning a graduate degree from Northeastern University which I believe, is quintessential for my success story. I hope that my background and qualifications are found suitable for MS in Project Management. I want to thank you for the wonderful opportunity given to me to express myself. This is an earnest appeal to give me a chance to prove my potential. In order to learn from the masters in this field, I submit my application with hope and full confidence.
