If we can describe it in few words, then will say:

Civil Engineering is the art and mechanism of directing the power in nature for use and convenience of man. It is an art to create the developed world around us.”

No doubt that the Civil Engineering is the best art to bring us towards development.

From roads constructions, building constructions, port constructions to river and township planning & construction, all are the workplace for this engineering branch.

Course & Duration

Get Latest Career Notification about Civil Engineering, by entering your details below.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

You can choose the Civil engineering, once you have completed your secondary or Sr. secondary examination.

The academic criterion of civil engineering is divided in three courses/programmes as follows:

  1. Diploma courses leading to the polytechnic diploma of 3 years duration.
  2. UG courses leading to the B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree of 4 years duration.
  3. PG courses leading to the M.Tech (Master of Technology) degree of 2 years duration.

Beside these, it is one of the broad research fields leading to the PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree.

Some other courses of Civil Engineering are listed below:

Diploma Courses:

  • Diploma in Civil & Rural Engineering
  • Advance Diploma in Civil Engineering
  • Post Graduate Diploma in Civil Engineering

Bachelor Courses:

  • Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Ceramics & Cement Technology
  • Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Civil Infrastructure Engineering
  • Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Civil & Transportation Engineering

Master Courses:

  • Master of Technology (M.Tech) in Civil Structural Design
  • Master of Technology (M.Tech) in Building Technology & Construction Management

After the completion of 10th standard, you are only eligible to enter the diploma courses. Once you have done the 12th standard you are fully eligible to choose the UG (B.Tech) programme.

For entering in Civil Engineering, either in diploma or UG, mathematics and physics are the compulsory and has to be in qualifying examination.

For entering in PG (M.Tech) programme, B.Tech in civil engineering is must.

So now, you have a complete package of education in Civil Engineering after 10th upto research programme.

Specialization (Sub-disciplines)

Civil engineering is a deep field of technical education. It has divided in various specializations after completed the B.Tech degree.
