Hello My Dear Civil Engineering Student and Career Aspirant,


I am really sad to know from your query that you are not able to cope up with Civil Engineering studies and that too from the first semester.

Thank you for approaching CareerGuide.com for seeking guidance and clarification to your serious career concern. I am sure that the experts here will be able to guide you appropriately.

Civil Engineering:

To tell you Civil Engineering is a great field to work in and make managerial career too in the field. In my more than seven years of career counselling experience I have come across many civil engineers who want to pursue good careers in their life. Since I am also into teaching civil engineers, I know that they are very talented and positive.

Reading your query made me feel very sad and made me think as to why are you not liking the civil engineering field. Can you tell me some answers to the below questions:

1. Did you take civil engineering out of any compulsion or as a last resort since you did not get admission to any othe rbranch of engineering?
2. Do you have the positive attitude while studying and going to college?
3. Do you feel that you have made a mistake by choosing civil engineering and also further that do you feel that civil engineering is boring?
4. Has some one told you that civil engineering is not good and there is lot of struggle in career for long years?

I think if you can answer the above questions to your self you will be able to get some direction as to what you should be doing.

Leaving Civil Engineering:

Since you are in the Semester I, it would be possible for you to change your stream of engineering to any other branch of your choice. HOWEVER, this time your choice should be perfect.

To check whether your choice of engineering is perfect, CareerGuide.com has a wonderful psychometric assessment tool available for download by the name "Engineering Branch Suggestor". As the name suggests, taking this test will definintely help ou to listen to your inner voice and also systematically prove and show you the exact and suitable engineering branch to you.

I hope you will take this test now, since you cannot waste more time in deciding since time waits for nobody.

Best Luck
