- For Teachers
I joined in a Engineering school simply because that is what was expected from me.
Is this statement correct? If no, please post the correct one.

In addition to Mike's comments, there is no need to capitalize "engineering" and I would say "that was what" not "that is what."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Furthermore, I'd say '...that was what was expected of me'.
In BrE, "went to/attended/enrolled in an Engineering school" is rather unnatural. Unless the actual type of facility is important, I would say "I studied Engineering simply because that's what was expected of me".
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
