Civil Engineering is a versatile and core branch of Engineering that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of infrastructural works like roads, railways, airports, bridges, canals, dams, aqueducts, harbours and buildings etc. Civil engineers are important to the society as they are often referred as ‘Builders of Nation’.There are many career paths for civil engineers. Civil engineers find jobs in government agencies, private and public sector undertakings to take up various mega projects like metro railway projects, express highway corridors, industrial structures, reservoir projects, flyovers, townships and mega city projects. The next decade will be the most creative, demanding and rewarding times for civil engineers.
