My of my 4th standard I went to visit

My interest in the field of construction started at
the age of 10. During the summer holidays of my 4th standard I went to
visit a nearby town with my uncle who is an engineering contractor working for
the same. The beautiful buildings, wide roads and the infrastructure had held
me spellbound because that was the first time I had seen such good
infrastructure, as I come from a remote village where there were no basic
amenities like roads and drains, running water and I had to travel for about an
hour for attending high school due to bad road network. As years passed by, I
had visited many such sites with my uncle and I came to realize that my career
path would surely be around the field of development and construction of
buildings.

 India is a
developing nation and has many infrastructure challenges with limited funding
resources. It is my firm belief that if the principles of construction
management are extended in construction industry, it would result in an overall
profitable, safer, economical, qualitative and speedy construction. There is a
dire need to implement innovative construction projects applying quality
assuring construction techniques that would improve standard of living of
people. Keeping in mind the complexities involved in achieving this I am
constantly seeking out opportunities to learn how to contribute to this long
term goal of mine. This is one of the main reasons why I was interested in
construction management. I want to see myself as a remarkable contributor in
the construction field, which would be for the betterment of society.

I feel that construction is the field which
requires lot of patience, perseverance and management skills to be successful.
My strategy for a graduate study will therefore be a prolonged one where I
shall be consolidating my knowledge in a more specialized way and acquire the
skills required to develop and
refine scientific ideas and hypotheses. By the end of my graduate
program I expect myself to understand the total project process including; concept, design, procurement,
construction and delivery of the functioning project. The constructor’s
professional responsibility as a leader and member of a multi-disciplinary
team, working in diverse  environments, assessing risks, and showing
definitive progress, all while maintaining priorities in safety,
sustainability, purpose, business and societal issues. More importantly I would
like to be a specialist in construction productivity improvement and
infrastructure asset management and
I seek to do research with the aim of developing cheap and sustainable building
materials suitable for developing economies which would help in solving the problem of limited funds.

Getting an in-depth
knowledge of the complete project process assists us to analyze the problems
being faced in construction field in a critical way and helps us to get an
innovative solution. I
firmly believe that pursuing my graduation from CSU will further inspire and
encourage me towards my goal and definitely give direction to my pursuits of
becoming a successful construction professional in the future so that I can
serve my countrymen and develop backward areas like the place where I come from
which were plenty in India.

I have selected Colorado State University for
my Master’s because I strongly believe that the learning environment plays a
critical role in gaining knowledge and expertise. The CSU Construction Management Program is the
only program in Colorado accredited by the American Council for Construction
Education and is consistently ranked as a top-tier university. More importantly, your program combines
theory and application with a strong emphasis in applied management. The curriculum is not only focused on
construction means and methods, but also on the career path that one chooses. I
personally loved CM Cares which develops and nurtures our character and also
promotes service learning. It is one of the only construction management
programs in the US which is actually going out and has a coordinated event of
construction activities delivered through a leadership course. The work done by
CM Cares is inspiring and I would love to join it. Also the CM program in CSU
gives importance to Transportation infrastructure which is one of my interests.

My research interests
include Construction Productivity Improvement, Infrastructure asset management
and Sustainable construction which are evident from my educational goals.
