Civil Engineering

A civil engineer has to work in diverse fields such as irrigation, dams, canals, hydro power, roads, railways, buildings, industrial structures, bridges, docks, harbours, airfields, tunnels and environmental engineering (including water supply and waste water treatment systems). The job of a civil engineer extends over a wide spectrum of activities involving planning, designing, construction and maintenance of various civil works. A civil engineer is also responsible for management of various resources, personnel, administration, finance and construction. Presently the infrastructure projects offer a wide scope for jobs as well as for entrepreneurs.

A civil engineer has access to the public sector for employment through competitive exams likes UPSC and MPSC, in public sector undertakings such as Indian Railways, Directorate of Civil Aviation, Central Public Works Department, various port trusts, Nuclear Power Corporation of India, National Highway Authority of India and state PWDs.
