Ask yourself why did you opt for civil engineering?. You will get your required answer.
Anyways answering your question. You have many options further. Right from opting for a masters degree to designing to architecture, to masters in planning, management studies (MBA), project management, supply chain management, computers (MCA).
Wish you good luck...
Good question asked. But sorry the question cannot be answered. Simply because the two fields cannot be compared at all and secondly they are two seperate professions having no similiarity and lastly they require different potentials. Though few engineers do opt for civil service exams
Choice is theirs and right now choice is yours.
As both engineering and civil services are the the best in their concerned areas.
Wish you good luck....

For IAS, it would be fine to select Humanities and choose Political Science. Generally the subject political science is very near to the IAS studies and therefore many choose this and get successful.
However, it is not that only Humanities Political Science students get through IAS easily. There is nothing easy in IAS studies, but yes, this subject or specialisation will help you get the overall understanding of India which is required for
Your friends are very RIGHT. They have suggested you correctly. Please convey my thanks and appreciation to them since they did not fool you and told you the reality.
Being a Civil Engineer, I would strongly suggest you to go a job immediately after your degree. Yes, you can study too, but not an MBA. The best thing as a Civil Engineer to study would be:
1. Project Management
2. Construction Project Management
4. AutoCAD, Stata, Primavera.
The above is applicable only if you would like to remain in the civil engineering field for your career.

Very sad to see another case where the candidate is not happy with the course and future of the career is concerned. Civil Engineering is a good field with good scope.
Now that you have decided that you wish to leave Civil Engineering, to begin with please ensure that even if you dont like it, you should score atleast 55% in the degree of civil engineering.

1. Chartered Financial Analyst
2. Actuaries (Insurance)
3. Data Analytics
4. Business Intelligence

What is the reason according to you that you are unemployed after becoming a BTech Civil Engineer?
Construction industry is the largest employing industry in India and across the world.
You should find out what skills as a Civil Engineer you are lacking since having that degree on paper is not useful now to the companies.
I feel learning the software like Stata, MS Project, AutoCAD is a must for a Civil Engineer and also having knowledge about Construction Management is recommended.
I feel, you can take the PG courses in Construction Technology, Infrastructure Management,
After Civil Engineering, I would suggest that try to get into a job. If it is difficult, then I would suggest that you can do courses in Construction Management, Project Management, also if you are not trained in software, then you can do courses of AutoCAD, Stata, MS Project. These are very much required by companies when you are fresher.
If you are interested in post graduation studies, you can go for ME/MTech in the specialisation of your choice. Latest specialisations are Green Technology, Sustainable Engineering, Project Management, Construction Technology, etc.
Yes, graduation through distance learning mode is now eligible to apply for civil services examinations as per the recent notification from the UPSC.
However as a Counsellor, I would like to know why are you doing graduation through distance mode and not regular full time? What is the reason? Are you working due to which you cannot attend full time college? If yes, then that is fine but if not, then I would suggest that you should do graduation full time.
There is no Diploma in Civil Engineering available through the distance mode.
I would like to know and understand why do you wish to pursue a distance learning diploma in a very field and technical subject like civil engineering? Are you working currently? Or you just do not wish to study formally and want the diploma as a formality?
I would suggest that based on 10th std marks you can get admission to Diploma in Civil Engineering easily. Ensure that you also complete degree of civil engineering later to have a better scope and growth in the career.
Not all distance courses are
Though you have spoken to the counsellor and he must have guided you appropriately, I would request for a more explanation of your query here so that I can try and add value to your query.
You have selected Civil Engineering and you are in the last year of engineering. I would recommend that you should start seeking our job opportunities and try to learn on the job and gain experience. Later you can go for Construction Management course if you do not get a job.
A candidate who has completed graduation from a recognized university is eligible to appear for competitive exams. Being an Engineer, you will have an added advantage in civil service exams. Being a graduate you can appear for exams for the posts of IAS, IPS, IFS, IRS and being an engineer you can appear for IES exam.
IIT’s are premier institutes of India and are very well known to the world for the quality of education. Pursuing B.Tech. from the institute will be always beneficial i.e. both as a graduate and as a candidate who is willing to prepare for competitive exam
