If you work it right you can get a company to sponsor any construction
and  testing your research may require, thus gaining experience which may
be useful in securing a good job. 
If you are into wood, you could build, test and report on a series of
short (say 4 ft. x 10 ft. high shear walls with different types of hold
downs and measure deflections as well as shear. 
If you are into concrete you could do some research with ferro-cement- a
very good but seldom used type of structural material which could be used
for shear walls, roof structures, etc. For this, Masterbuilders may be
interested in sponsoring you. If you decide to do something with
ferro-cement, contact me for some ideas and examples of where it has been
used.
