Termed as one of the oldest and evergreen branch of engineering, Civil Engineering has been amongst the most sought after careers by the engineering aspirants. Civil Engineering as a branch has contributed towards development of the world and transforming it into smart cities. Technological advancements has lead to development of new techniques which are used to construction of world renowned Infrastructural marvels, historical monuments, bridges, dams, etc.
After possessing a professional degree in Civil Engineering, there are abundant career opportunities available in fields both in government and private sector. Specializations such as Geo-Information System, designing and construction, space management, town planning, modern architecture and roads & highways constructions helps in adding new dimensions to the career of Civil Engineers.
There are multiple areas where a Civil Engineer can find placement after completing his or her degree and job profiles such as contract Civil Engineer, Site Engineer or supervisor, Water Engineer, Environmental Consultant are some of important positions in Industry where there is requirement of professionally trained and experienced civil engineer. Although it’s preferably good to gain job experience and knowledge about the Industry-relative workings yet a student can opt for entrepreneurship in the field of construction industry by setting-up their venture who can apply for various contractual jobs in government sector.
During the first year of Civil Engineering, the students would undergo academic learning about the basic engineering techniques along with mathematics and engineering design. The students would be focused towards core subject areas such Fluid Mechanics, Soil Mechanics, Design of Structures, and Structural Mechanics and water recourse engineering during the later semesters of the engineering program. As the syllabus of Civil Engineering has been updated with advancements in technology, the students are also partly exposed to subjects like Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Remote Sensing, Transportation Systems Engineering etc.
A civil engineering degree will provide good number of opportunities in industry as India is developing its infrastructure at a very fast pace. Projects such as Smart Cities would add to requirement of professionally trained engineers in this field and it is estimated that about 3.5 million Civil Engineers are required by 2022.
