Strength of materials is a rudimentary subject which encompasses everything from behaviour in axial forces to bending to shear to buckling under huge loads, it prepares you to estimate material behavior when it is subjected to a force or combination of different forces.

Without it's knowledge you cannot understand and appreciate the beauty behind other subjects (how cracking moment in reinforced bar is generated, what happens to a steel frame after it is loaded beyond it's capacity, how load varies in soil or asphalt which makes up the road).

It is essential that you make yourself acquainted with basic subjects without which you cannot progress any further, it's as if you are asking why we need to study functions to understand calculus, hope you got my point.

If you have decided to complete your higher education from another country, you will be surprised to know the huge amount of options available in terms of courses, specialisation and colleges. Choosing the right country and right college can be troublesome for a lot of students as the only information they can get about these colleges is gained from the internet. You can also consult with education counsellor or some friend or relative to help you in the process of selecting a college abroad. Before starting your search for a college, you need to narrow down a few things.
