India is a developing nation and has many infrastructurechallenges with limited funding resources. It is my firm belief that if theprinciples of construction management are extended in construction industry, itwould result in an overall profitable, safer, economical, qualitative andspeedy construction. There is a dire need to implement innovative constructionprojects applying quality assuring construction techniques that would improvestandard of living of people. Keeping in mind the complexities involved inachieving this I am constantly seeking out opportunities to learn how tocontribute to this long term goal of mine.
This is one of the main reasons whyI was interested in construction management. I want to see myself as aremarkable contributor in the construction field, which would be for thebetterment of society.I feel that construction is the field which requires lotof patience, perseverance and management skills to be successful.
My strategyfor a graduate study will therefore be a prolonged one where I shall beconsolidating my knowledge in a more specialized way and acquire the skillsrequired to develop and refinescientific ideas and hypotheses. By the end of my graduate program Iexpect myself to understand the totalproject process including; concept, design, procurement, construction anddelivery of the functioning project. The constructor’s professionalresponsibility as a leader and member of a multi-disciplinary team, working indiverse environments, assessing risks, and showing definitive progress,all while maintaining priorities in safety, sustainability, purpose, businessand societal issues. More importantly I would like to be a specialist inconstruction productivity improvement and infrastructure asset management and Iseek to do research with the aim of developing cheap and sustainable building materialssuitable for developing economies which would help solve the problem of limitedfunds. Getting an in-depthknowledge of the complete project process assists us to analyze the problemsbeing faced in construction field in a critical way and helps us to get aninnovative solution.
I firmlybelieve that pursuing my graduation from ASU will further inspire and encourageme towards my goal and definitely give direction to my pursuits of becoming asuccessful construction professional in the future so that I can serve mycountrymen and develop backward areas like the place where I come from whichwere plenty in India.
