Future

This has been one of the most lucrative and competitive course to study since its inception in Indian engineering schools, colleges and universities. When India’s Infrastructure industry created mark in world of business and gained super trust and revenue for the nation it also created large amount of well paid jobs for Civil Engineering students.

Civil engineering students will learn about basic engineering techniques, as other engineering students, during first year course. These techniques include Engineering Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, and Engineering drawing. From second year they are exposed to core civil engineering subjects like Concrete Technology, Building and Town Planning, Engineering Geology. Structural Analysis, Highway Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Design, Water and Waste water Engineering are few to mention.
