Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is one of the broadest and oldest of the engineering disciplines, extending across many technical specialties. Civil Engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential to modern life like space satellites and launching facilities, offshore structures, bridges, buildings, tunnels, highways, transit systems, dams, airports, harbors, water supply system and wastewater treatment plants. A civil engineer is responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of the project. A civil engineer requires not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills.


What does a Civil Engineer do?

  • Civil engineers are involved in the design and building of highways, bridges and tunnels, schools, hospitals, airports and other buildings, sewage systems and water treatment facilities.
  • Most structures, large and small, require the help of a civil engineer whether in the designing, planning or managing of the project.
  • Civil engineers also help to preserve our environment by assisting in the cleaning up of existing pollution and planning ways to reduce future pollution of our air, land and water.

What is the future for a Civil Engineering graduate?

Civil engineers are employed in all the major construction projects carried out by the state or central government like the public works departments (PWD), the railways and military. Civil Engineers are mostly required in private construction and real estate companies as project engineers. Civil Engineers can find the opportunities in any of the following category
  • As Project Engineer (Construction), responsible for planning, building large structures such as power plants, cement factory, over bridges etc.
  • Structural design engineer, to design the large structures
  • Computer Aided Design Engineer, to design the structural members using advanced CAD Packages
  • As Environmental engineer, involving in environmental impact assessment, water resources management, pollution control, waste management or the planning and design of engineering facilities to minimize their impact on the environment
  • Research and Development Engineer, researching in advanced, cost effective & pollution free construction materials
  • Urban planning engineer, to plan for housing colonies, industrial layouts , water & sewage systems for urban / semi-urban areas
Scope for Higher Education

After graduation as a B.E / B.Tech in Civil Engineering one can look for M.E / M.Tech / M.S in any of the following areas
  • Structural
