The aim of the forthcoming statement is to introduce myself and my achievements, more importantly, why I want to continue my further studies in Ph.D. in Civil Engineering at EMU University.
My name is Muhammad Ijaz have completed my graduation from Baluchistan University of Information Technology Engineering & Management Sciences (BUITEMS), Quetta, Pakistan in Civil Engineering (2008-2012). I Completed MS in Transportation engineering from National University of Science & Technology (NUST) Pakistan, during 2013 – 2016, with CGPA 3.00 out of 4.00. The reason for selecting this specific Ph.D. program is because that it’s playing an important role in engineering industry and soon I would like to get to know more things regarding Traffic and Transportation Engineering because, during my Master study, I focused on Traffic Engineering, Transportation Planning, Urban Transportation Evaluation, Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) and Urban & Regional Transportation System.
The medium of Education at the institute during Undergraduate and Master study was English. During my engineering program & work experience, I got some ideas in my mind but until now I didn’t have the right tools for putting them in practice and that is why I came to know that this Ph.D. program would be an excellent starting point for me.Furthermore, if I get selected for this program I will have the opportunity to learn from world’s best institute from north Cyprus and it will be my dream and a great pleasure for me and my entire family for being a Ph.
D. student of EMU. Also, the international environment at EMU that will give me the privilege to create new relationships with people from different cultures and I believe my motivation will qualify me for such a Ph.
D. program.Currently, I am serving as a lecturer in University of Lahore (UOL), affiliated with Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC), Pakistan. Apart from teaching activities, I am also supervising final year projects of undergraduate students. EMU University offers an exciting interdisciplinary scenario, where I will have the opportunity to advertise my area of interest as a Ph.
D. candidate. I wish to develop my skills and knowledge in this area to become a good researcher. It is my dream to contribute to the development of this field in my country. During my M.Sc.
term projects, I have used Vissim (Micro Traffic Simulation Software) while working on term project “Urban Traffic Congestion and Mitigation through Infrastructure Improvement in Pakistan”. That is why I express my Ph.D. interest in Traffic control and simulation.I would be grateful for your consideration of my candidacy for Ph.D.
