Scope of the Program

 

Civil engineering is the oldest branch of engineering which is growing right from the stone age of civilization. American society of civil engineering defines civil engineering as the profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and physical sciences gained by study, experience and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to utilize economically the materials and forces of the nature for the progressive well being of man.

A career as a civil engineer offers several lucrative job avenues in both public & private sector. Some popular options include consulting firms, railways, defense force, and municipal corporations.

Due to increase in the scope of civil engineering with the passage of time, it has now got diversified into many branches of study. Some of the significant ones include…..

  • Building materials
  • Building construction
  • Structural engineering
  • Geotechnical engineering
  • Hydraulics, water resources and irrigation engineering
  • Water supply and sanitary engineering
  • Environmental engineering
  • Transportation engineering
  • Town planning and architecture
  • Surveying
  • Estimation and specification
  • Management techniques
  • Soft computing techniques

Civil engineering is the branch which involves a very vast scope to work in the various aspects.
