Replacemetn for intellectual
can you please tell me the replacement for the word 'intellectual'.
Even though, I am working in an honourable position at a reputed firm, I miss the intellectual challenges and creative satisfaction that I always yearned.
There are a few problems with your sentence, but the word intellectual is not one of them. In my opinion, you should leave this word as it is – it's appropriate to the context, and well chosen.
You should remove the comma after Even though and add the preposition for after yearned – to yearn for (sth.) is a phrasal verb.
Consider also changing reputed to reputable, and honourable to prestigious. If you choose to retain honourable, please be aware that this is the international/British spelling and that the US spelling is honorable.

Thanks for your responses. I am providing you the context (SOP for MS) where i have written this statement.
I would like to introduce myself as a prospective student of University of Minnesota. I am currently working in Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), as Assistant Systems Engineer. Even though, I am working in an honourable position at a reputed firm, I miss the intellectual challenges and creative satisfaction that I always yearned. It made me reassess and reflect upon the career choices I made and vividly envisage my passion for computer science with utter conviction.
Please check the grammar and word usage and correct if it is wrong.
