Activity 4. Choose the text about your profession and find the expressions which describe it.

a)

I study at Kharkiv national University of Civil Engineering and Architecture. I’m a second year student of Architectural Faculty. This faculty trains architects, designers and restorers.

My profession is of specific character which distinguishes it from other professions. Architect has to study the main up-to-date requirements of dwelling, public and industrial structures. He has to take to consideration modern social, sanitary and economic demands. Architect should know perfectly well the properties of building materials and modern structural elements. Architect must also possess the creative imagination. It will help him to integrate the plan and construction into one harmonious whole. Architect should also be able to prepare master plan of the city taking into account the traditional town pattern and future development of the town. So it is necessary for the architect to have a profound knowledge of the construction fundamentals, the fundamentals of physics, optics and other subjects. Architect must possess highly developed artistic taste and graphic training. He must also have professional computer skill and use modern programs in his work. I like my future profession very much and I will do my best to be a good specialist in the field.

b)

I am a second year student. I study at Kharkiv National University of Civil Engineering and Architecture. My future profession is a sanitary engineer. My speciality is of great importance in the national economy of the country. At the University we study such subjects as Resistance of Materials, Hydraulics, Technology of Structural Materials, and Geodesy.

The profession of sanitary engineer is of specific character which makes it distinct from other professions. The responsibilities of sanitary engineer are design and servicing of water supply systems, ventilation and heating systems, and servicing plumbing equipment. Sanitary engineer is faced with a number of important and complex problems to be solved. This is why a future engineer must know well the most up-to-date achievements in modern science and technology. It is necessary for sanitary engineer to have a profound knowledge of the special subjects. Sanitary engineer may work with one of the government agencies that deal with water resources and plumbing. Or he can work as a consultant in a construction company providing his knowledge to solve the problems in environmental or sanitary engineering field. I like my future profession very much and I will do everything to be a good specialist.

I am a second year student. I study at Kharkiv National University of Civil Engineering and Architecture. My future profession is a civil engineer. My qualification is hydro power engineering. My future job is very interesting, creative and challenging. This speciality is of great importance in the national economy of the country. At the University we study such subjects as Hydro engineering, Hydraulics, Theory of Hydro-power Plants Design, Maintenance of Hydro-Technical Structures and many others. Civil engineering and Hydro power engineering are very similar but each hydro power station is a unique project and it often means that engineers from other disciplines are involved. In a dam project, for example, electrical and mechanical engineers work on the design of the powerhouse and its equipment. So we should learn a lot of information concerning dams and their types, reservoirs of water, generators, and special features of the site and so on. In the 21st century civil engineer must combine the characteristics of the scientist, researcher and technologist. His main function is to integrate the abstract-theoretical world and the technical-practical one.

I am a second year student. I study at Kharkiv National University of Civil Engineering and Architecture. My future profession is a mechanical engineer. My speciality is of great importance in the national economy of the country. At the University we study such subjects as Resistance of Materials, Structural Mechanics, Processes and Equipment, Principles of Production, Technology of Structural Materials.

The profession of mechanical engineer is of specific character which makes it distinct from other professions. The responsibilities of mechanical engineer are servicing of mechanical equipment, calculation of the strength of mechanical equipment and design of mechanical gears. Mechanical engineer is faced with a number of important and complex problems to be solved. This is why a future engineer must know well the most up-to-date achievements in modern science and technology. It is necessary for mechanical engineer to have a profound knowledge of the special subjects such as Structural Mechanics, Structural Materials, and Resistance of Materials and so on. I like my future profession very much and I will do everything to be a good specialist.

e)

I am a second year student. I study at Kharkiv National University of Civil Engineering and Architecture. My future profession is a manager. My speciality is of great importance in the national economy of the country. At the University we study such subjects as History of Economic Studies, Theory of Economic Analysis, International Economic Relations, Basics of Foreign Economic Activity and many others.

In its meaning the term manager applies to the people who are responsible for making and carrying out decisions within a certain system. Personal manager directly supervises people in an organization. Financial manager is a person who is responsible for finance. Sales manager deals with selling of goods. Managing is a hard job. There is a lot to be done and relatively little time to do it. In all types of organizations managerial efficiency depends on manager’s direct personal relationships, hard work on a variety of activities and preference for active tasks. So if I want to be a professional of high level I should have a profound knowledge in many fields including jurisprudence, sociology, finance and marketing. I like my future profession very much and I will do everything to be a good specialist.
