I was born in Bangladesh, immigrated to Canada as a permanent resident. Now, I am a Canadian Citizen. I have completed my high school graduation in Kamloops, B.C. After that, I moved to Calgary, Alberta with my family. I have been living in Canada for 5 years. I have travelled many places in my home country Bangladesh as the world’s longest sea beach “Cox’s Bazar”, Sundarban forest. Bangladesh is a Southeast Asian country and Canada is a North American country. These two countries have very different weather, culture and language. These different countries have helped me to gain greater appreciation for different cultures. Among many interests I love watching

Above all of my interests, the civil engineering industry fascinates me the most. Once I participated in a Popsicle Bridge Contest organized by APEGBC at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops as a part of extracurricular activity for my Physics 12 class. I did an abundance of research and built a bridge which could sustain heavy load. I won the second prize, but the experience was more valuable. That experience helped to realize my passion for designing, and construction even more. That’s why I chose the CVT program to be a Civil Engineering Technologist professional. I believe, a Civil Engineering Technologist gets the opportunity to learn and experience many skills. I want a profession where everyday I get to create something new, take on challenges and impact the society. I believe, I have the qualities that would make me a strong CVT student. I am aware that the Civil Engineering Technologist is a very challenging program. It takes an abundance of hard work. I am capable of doing that hard work. I have the dedication, and patience this program demands. I have overcome many challenges in my life, and I am looking …show more content…
The teaching methods of SAIT are known to be skill oriented. For example, in my chosen program CVT I will get to do labs that involve building structures, and exploring the strength of materials. That will give me valuable hands on experience in the industry. SAIT also has very high percent of the employment rate. My chosen program CVT has 94% employment rate. For above reasons I have chosen to attend SAIT. CVT is a diploma program which is two years in length, consisting of four 15-week semesters. The first two semesters are common to all students in the program. During the fourth semester, I will have the ability to specialize in Construction Management or Municipal Engineering. CVT offers courses in in: math, construction management, structural design, geotechnical engineering, material science, urban services, water resources, transportation infrastructure and technical communications. Among all of them structural design interests me the most because it is a core component of Civil Engineering. A passion for inventing, designing, and creating has made me interested in these particular types of courses. But, I am sure I will enjoy and learn from other courses as much. I have visited the SAIT campus by myself, but not attended any campus activity yet. I am looking forward to attend one very
