During the late 19th and 20th centuries, he designed and developed most of the major construction projects in Lahore. These projects included several universities, hospitals, power plants and even towns, most of which are still integral parts of the city. He also transformed 50,000 acres of desert near the city into fertile fields by lifting water using a hydroelectric plant and a complex irrigation system. His work has inspired me to not only fulfill my desire to create something magnificent but to do it in a way which could benefit the people around me. Because of this, I decided to choose civil engineering as my program of study.At the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Tech, I will be able to master topics such as fluid mechanics and strength of materials under one of the most accomplished faculties around the world. I would get the chance to carry out research with fellow engineers in areas of interest such as clean energy solutions and infrastructure development in cities.Outside the classroom, I will get the chance to learn new skills, interact with other engineers, and further develop my ideas by joining clubs like Engineers for a Sustainable World at Georgia Tech and taking part in activities at the Student Competition Center.With the skills and knowledge I would acquire from Georgia Tech, I will be able to follow the footsteps of Sir Ganga Ram by improving the living conditions of people living in Lahore without access to necessities such as water and electricity through meaningful development. Georgia Tech will enable me to become a great engineer whose contributions would be no less important than those of Sir Ganga Ram.
