Mr Bhrigu Joshi, alumnus Civil Engineering 2016 batch, joined Master’s Degree in Structural Engineering at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign which is a top ranked university in the field of Civil and Structural Engineering. Bhrigu shares his experience at Urbana-Champaign.
“I extend my sincere thanks to The NorthCap University for all the support and guidance that enabled me achieve this success. I am grateful for Vice-Chancellor, Brig Sk Sharma’s help and mentorship which has helped in more than one ways. The curriculum at Urbana-Champaign is tough and work intensive and requires a lot of constant effort to sail through.
I would also like to thank Dr Amit Srivastava, HoD Civil Engineering at NCU. The use of notations for certain derivations used by him in class is similar that are being taught here and it made the transition between the coursework at NCU and UIUC a bit easier. Also I cannot emphasize enough the importance of computational tools in academic life and the use of MATLAB. We are required to use MATLAB for assignments here and the learnings at NCU are helping me a lot in this. I would recommend more involvement of MATLAB as a computational tool in the curriculum at NCU. “
