In today’s era, vertical growth of metro cities is inevitable because of lack of space amongst other constraints. Structures such as Burj Khalifa, Taipei 101 and the Willis Tower are the epitome of engineering marvels and no doubt required creativity and expertise in structural design. The idea of developing a one-kilometer tall building is mindboggling but it is happening in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The knowledge and technical skills of structural engineers to bring the creativity of architects into reality excites me. I am not only intrigued by this field but also have the acumen and aptitude to excel in it. But in order to do so, I require a more specialized education in structural designing and engineering. I believe that a graduate course in structural engineering from the University Of Maryland at College Park would help me proceed towards my goal.
