One of the oldest engineering branches, Civil Engineering is all about conceiving, planning designing, developing, constructing, creating, and maintaining of infrastructure required to provide services in various sectors of prime necessity for the well-being of society. A few of them are housing and commercial space; transportation by various modes; irrigation engineering and water resource management; water supply and waste water treatment; sustainable urban and regional planning. A degree in civil engineering can prepare you for an incredibly satisfying and rewarding career in both public/private/entrepreneurship domains in design, construction, management, and business fields. Some of the most popular careers that await you are:

Project Managers

They are the most responsible persons at the project/construction sites. With knowledge on the most basic things like costs, team and time management, weather, etc., managers have to be the eyes and ears of the clients and have to see ensure that everything progresses as per schedules.

Structural Engineers

Liaising with other engineers and architects, they design and develop structures that can sustain both natural and use-induced forces while ensuring that these structures remain durable and stable during their service life. They are also involved in the evaluation of existing infrastructure to check whether they satisfy the appropriate codal guidelines.

Site Engineers

A site engineer needs to possess effective communication and problem-solving skills to supervise the technical and organizational activities of construction projects. The work responsibilities include determining the ideal location for installations and applying designs to execute the project. Site engineers are also responsible for the safety and security of the site.

Geotechnical Engineer

With expertise in the field of soil mechanics/behavior which is also known as geotechnical engineering along with investigative skills and problem-solving approaches, they can make a fulfilling career as geotechnical engineers. They need to analyze the soil-rock properties and design the substructure by assessing risks that can arise from forces due to the structure itself and any form of natural hazards like earthquakes, landslides, and floods.

Building Planning Engineers

Building planning engineers need to ensure that building regulations are being adhered to when any infrastructure project is constructed or rebuilt. From inspecting the buildings for safety and security, they offer feasible solutions when regulations are not met with. Building planning engineers should stay updated with the current regulations regarding fire and other hazards.

Transportation Engineers

Do you think public transportation just happens? All those subways, trams, roads, highways, railways, airways, waterways, and such facilities don’t just spring from nowhere. Top transportation engineers are responsible for planning, designing, executing, and maintaining the facilities for us to reach our destination on time.

Environmental Engineers

Environmental engineers have a great responsibility of safeguarding our environment from the ill effects of all human activities and make it safe for all living creatures. You will get to go and restore landscapes and nature from what people have ruined, you will get to explain to the public what a healthy indoor and outdoor environment is, and what to do in the future to stop wrecking our planet.

Urban planning Engineers

Urban planning might be the closest thing to playing with your dream of an ideal neighborhood, where you wanted to have ample play spaces, recreational facilities, safe cycling tracks, etc. You can get to suggest how to use the land for various purposes and what type of transportation facilities would be most suitable for sustainability.

  • • Pass in PUC/10+2 Examination, conducted by the respective State Government/ Union Territory or any other qualification recognized as equivalent thereto, with Physics and Mathematics as compulsory subjects along with one of the subjects among Chemistry/Computer Science/ Electronics/Technical/Vocational Course and at least 45% Aggregate (40% in case of candidates belonging to SC/ST category) in the above three subjects taken together.
