About Civil Engineering

There would have been no historic wonders like Taj Mahal, Coliseum of Rome and the Great Wall of China or modern masterpieces like the London Bridge and Howrah Bridge if there were no civil engineers. The engineering course deals with planning, designing, constructing, maintaining, and operating infrastructures while protecting the public and environmental health as well as improving existing infrastructure. The course also teaches the development of better infrastructural facilities to sustain an eco-friendly environment. Civil engineering course is offered both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.


For UG : The construction and infrastructural development projects including town planning are on the rise in the coming days and will demand more domain specialists.

For PG : In search of comfortably safe homes, better roads and standardised living, the demand for civil engineers are to raise more.

Basic Requirements

A bachelor's degree in Engineering is the minimum requirement to become a qualified civil engineer. A post graduate degree is required for research or teaching posts and an additional degree in business administration is desirable for management positions. Selection to the graduate courses (B.E. / B. Tech.) is based on merit i.e. the marks secured in the final exams of 10+2 and through

Job Perspectives

There will always be a need for Civil Engineers as there is a consistent demand to maintain and repair existing facilities and structures and to construct new ones. After graduation one can look for jobs in road projects, building work, consultancy firms, quality testing laboratories or housing societies. According to the experts there is a high demand for experienced civil engineers in developed countries. Civil engineers are employed in all the major construction projects carried out by the state or central government, the railways, private construction companies, military, engineering services, consultancy services etc. Civil engineering graduates can do research work and take up teaching or they can open their own independent consultancy services. Middle Eastern countries provide employment opportunities especially Dubai where Civil Engineers can reap the benefit of opportunities owing to the number of construction projects they have.
