Hello My Dear Civil Engineering Aspirant,

I am thank full to you for approaching the right platform of CareerGuide for seeking guidance and clarification on Civil Engineering career and scope. I am sure that the experts here will be able to help and guide you appropriately.

Your statement that will Civil Engineering will be fruitful 'these days' is very apt and I would like to start answering this question with a strong and bold and confident 'YES'.

I am involved in teaching and interacting with many engineers and more of civil engineers for some years now and through my more than seven years of career counselling experience, I can definitely tell you that Civil Engineering has a lot of scope in India considering the infrastructure development in the country, however there is a myth that Civil Engineers are only those engineers who are involved in building real estate or roads.

Civil Engineering:

I personally consider Civil Engineers as the "nation builders". This is very right since Civil Engineers are those professionals who contribute to the nation building every day than any body in the country.
Civil Engineers should be proud of this fact.
Civil Engineering job is a versatile and very important for any construction. Construction does not only mean houses, hotels, roads, but also building airports, oil & gas plants, shipping, logistics, transportation, highways, etc. In all these sectors Civil Engineering is the back bone.

The classic example of Civil Engineering marvel is the Bandra Worli Sea Link in Mumbai.

Scope of Civil Engineering:

Let me tell you that Infrastructure and Construction sector are the biggest sectors in India and with the new government to come, this sector will be given a major boost. Investments of upto Dollar One Trillion are expected to made in this sector in India. Dollar One Trillion means around Sixty Lakh Crores in rupees.

To built so muc of infrastructure civil engineers will be required in huge numbers and there fore there is no need to say that there will be no jobs or low paid jobs for civil engineers.

Construction Management:

Construction Management is one area where Civil Engineers should play a key role bu learning Construction Project Management formally through a post graduate course in the same. This is future of civil engineering.

Best Luck
