Civil engineering is a division of engineering that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams,power plants,airport runways, and buildings.
It is one of the oldest engineering subjects and the largest field of engineering.
A candidate who specializes in this field is known as a civil engineers.
A civil engineer requires not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills.
UG: 4 Years
For admission in a bachelor’s degree, the candidate must have passed intermediate in science(10+2) examination with science subject such as biology, maths and chemistry. For IITs, It is mandatory to clears JEE - Advance.

Civil engineers are in great demand to uphold and repair current facilities and structures and to construct new buildings. There are a lot of career opportunities in this field. Graduates after completion of their course can seek employment in consultancy firms, quality testing labs, road projects and building work. Civil engineering graduates can also opt for research work or open their own independent consultancy services. Professionals in this career can also opt for teaching jobs in universities and colleges.
Skilled professionals in this field are in high demand in developed countries. Civil engineers are engaged in all important building plans carried out by the private construction firms, railways projects, military, engineering services, state or central government and consultancy services. Middle Eastern countries offer job opportunities particularly Dubai where civil engineers can reap the benefit of opportunities owing to the number of construction projects they have.

Civil engineering is one of the highly rewarding field. Civil Engineers employed in government departments get their initial income around Rs. 8,000 to Rs. 12,000 while superiors can earn about Rs 20,000. Lecturer/Professors in engineering colleges’ incomes are fixed by UGC. Those civil engineers working in private sector particularly in construction and designing field are getting more than Rs. 30,000 every month. With some experience they may go up to Rs 50,000 to Rs 60,000 every month. Consultancy in civil engineering is also highly remunerative depending upon number and nature of the clients.
