Civil Engineering is one of the most traditional studies in India. British started very good schools for civil engineering studies and successfully completed some of the best projects like the Ganga Canal and Railways Network to name a few.
In the first year of study, students will learn about the basic engineering techniques along with mathematics and engineering design. From second year, students will be more focussed towards core subjects. Few of the subjects taught in these four years are Fluid Mechanics, Soil Mechanics, Design of Structures and Structural Mechanics and Water recourse engineering. Students are also partly exposed to subjects like Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Remote Sensing, Transportation Systems Engineering etc.
A bachelor degree in civil engineering will give good opportunities in industry as India is moving fast forward for infrastructure development and at the same time, leave a good space for higher studies at home and abroad like MS in Civil Engineering. Almost all top Universities offer MS in Civil Engineering and there are good opportunities in PhD and research too.
Core companies offering jobs :
Associated Engineering Consultants, Larsen & Toubro Ltd., Railways, Engineers India Ltd., DRDO, ISRO, SERC and Jaypee Group are to name few companies and organizations that offer jobs to civil engineering students.
