Among the various branches of engineering, the range and application of civil engineering are the broadest and the most visible one. Look into the world and we can see the entire infrastructural framework of a modern nation is the creation of civil engineers. Building mighty power plants, dams, airports, seaports, highways, inland waterways and industrial plants go to civil engineers. They are also engaged in building an unending array of urban structures such as commercial complexes, skyscrapers, tunnels, bridges, roads, transport systems, sports stadium the list goes on and on. Wherever you are in the world, be in the city or in the far end of the country, you simply cannot miss the creation of civil engineers from your sight.

Civil Engineering course

If you decided to become a civil engineer, you have two option, either to do a diploma or a degree in civil engineering. On choosing a degree, you can also pursue post-graduation in the subject.

As said earlier, it is a broad subject and branches into many sub-branches of engineering like environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, water resources, materials, coastal, urban planning, surveying engineering. These represent the enormous career prospectus in the field mostly due to the rapid growth of infrastructure facilities in India and many of the third world countries in the world.

How to join

The basic eligibility criteria to pursue a civil engineering programme at the UG level is to pass the qualifying examination (10+2) from a recognized board with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as main subjects. Besides passing the qualifying examination, the candidate should have secured a minimum aggregate mark of 60% in the said subjects. The civil engineering aspirants should possess good analytical, critical, problem-solving skills to get a better understanding of the course at the earliest.

Top civil engineering colleges in India offer admission to students based on the JEE Main examination. It is a national level entrance examination done by the National Testing Agency (NTA) in India.

The course curriculum of the civil engineering course differs from colleges, institutes and universities across India, while the fundamentals of the programme remain the same.

Career Prospect of Civil Engineers

In the past few years, the demand for civil engineers in the industry has exceeded the supply. The growth in the economy and the shortage of well qualifies and experienced civil engineers has resulted in towering the pay levels. So, as a good civil engineer, better job opportunities are awaiting you at your doorstep.

The demand for civil engineers will only increase in the coming years as many of the multinational engineering companies are setting up their footprint across India. The rapid increase in the population and steady technological progress in society has considerably increased the market of civil engineers in India.
