Undergoing a broad and diversified curriculum has taught me adaptability and flexibility which are essential traits to have in a constantly changing environment. This also opens up multiple career options while being equipped with adequate technical competency for each, as a result of undergoing stimulating exercises, enlightening presentations and challenging examinations throughout my undergraduate course. In addition, such undertakings aided in developing determination and perseverance which are key attributes for success in particularly competitive fields like civil engineering. Our instructors and professors have enabled us with these qualities and skills which are highly sought of by employers both in the industry and in the academe.
