    My major is closely relevant to my work.

    Are these two sentences OK?

    I have done a bachelor's degree in power engineering, which is closely relevant to my work. This is one of the highlights of my job.

    Re: My major is closely relevant to my work.

    All three sentences are grammatically correct. I don't think you mean to say that your work is one of the highlights of your job - which doesn't make sense - but that's what both second sentences mean.

    'The highlights of my life' should make more sense.

    I want to say that because my work is closely relevant to my major is the reason that I like my job.

    How about highly relevant​?

    I think it is ungrammatical. I would replace 'is the reason that' with a comma.
