Civil engineering is the development of infrastructure projects. This can be on a huge scale, such as the development of nationwide transport systems or water supply networks, or on a smaller scale such as the development of individual roads or buildings.
All aspects of building a structure fall under the remit of a civil engineer. This can include planning, design, budgeting, surveying, construction management and analysis, and often civil engineering careers encompass a combination of all these elements.
Civil engineering skills are strongly rooted in mathematics and science, and a high level of proficiency in these subjects is required in order to predict the performance and capability of the structures they create. For this reason, students with strong backgrounds in physics and mathematics who are also interested in designing functional structures, from bridges to hydropower systems, are prime candidates to study civil engineering.
The great thing about civil engineering in the real world is that it’s an industry that perpetually adapts to the demands and desires of society. In recent years civil engineering has adapted to consider many contemporary environmental concerns, helping to address issues of pollution and scarce water supplies, while considering the potential of sustainable energy within the industry.
Civil engineering basically deals with planning, design, estimation and construction of infrastructures like highways railways, harbors, bridges, tunnels, water supply system, waste water treatment plants, irrigation system, hydraulic structures like dam, weir, barrage, canals etc.
Civil engineers also deals with environmental aspects.
Job opportunities can be basically divided into two categories;
Office job-: This includes tendering, estimation of project cost, planning, design, using different design software.
Site-: site job deals with construction, practice, preparing layout etc.
Job opportunities are available in different sectors like consultant, planner, designer, site engineers, surveyor, project manager etc.
Job opportunities are available in Government as well as Private Sectors.
