Civil engineers have a beautiful future ahead! The field is expected to grow further, considering the rising demand for advanced infrastructure creation. YOU can either opt for private and public sector.
In fact, the industry witnessed a shortage of about 8, 000 civil engineers in the last few years!
Therefore, it is natural the demand for specialized professionals will keep increasing every year. You can go for the following things
Civil Engineers can be appointed by Government Departments, Real Estate Societies, Power Plants, Transportation, Private and Public Sector Undertakings, Consultancy Firms, Industrial Plants & Building, Housing and Urban Development and Teaching Institutions.
Top companies hiring Civil Engineers are Antant Access, Ajay Kadam Association, Dr. Kelkar Consultants Pvt Ltd. Jaypee Group, Larsen and Tubro, Simplex Projects Ltd. Vadakar and Associates. RDS Projects Ltd. Macro Marvel Infrastructure Corporation Ltd. IVRCL Infrastructure & Projects Ltd. Hiranandani Construction Pvt. Ltd. Balaji Railroad Systems Ltd. etc.
Civil engineering includes following aspects of engineering:
- Structural Engineering
- Architectural Engineering
- Geotechnical Engineering
- Offshore Engineering
- Transportation Engineering
- Environmental Engineering
- Control Engineering
- Construction Surveying
- Construction Engineering
- Earthquake Engineering
- Municipal or Urban Engineering
- Materials Engineering
- Forensic Engineering
- Water Resources Engineering

BUT, just as it has high package companies waiting for deserving candidates,civil engineering can be a bane for engineers too. If passing from a Tier-2 or Tier-3 colleges (private/not so famous in the market), taking up civil engineering could be a very difficult path to walk on!
P.S.: If you are in Tier-1(IIT/NITs)colleges, your life is all set to rule the world!
but,if already are in a Tier2/3 college, not to worry.Go for GATE,PSU’s,after all opportunities never end in life ! 🙂
