Hi, According to experts, there is a high demand for experienced civil engineers in developed countries. Hundreds of civil engineers migrate from India to Canada, Australia and other countries for better career prospects.



According to an estimate, over 50,000 new jobs in the civil engineering sector are coming up every year across the country in the private sector. The Centre has announced to invest over Rs 50,000 crore in the infrastructure sector in the next few years.
The earnings depend on the industries employing civil engineers such as Central or State government departments or private concerns. In India, a bachelor's degree candidate in civil engineering can receive a starting salary of Rs. 10, 000 and Rs. 16, 000. A diploma holder will get between Rs. 8,000 to Rs. 10, 000 on an average. After 3-4 years of experience on good projects, one can earn up to Rs. 30, 000 to Rs. 40, 000 per month. There is no ceiling for the right candidates to progress in this field. Most employers prefer candidates with Computer (Autocad) knowledge.
Companies abroad in Singapore, UAE etc pay Rs 30, 000 - 45,000 approximately for candidates with 2-3 years experience. In USA, according to a 2001 salary survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, a bachelor's degree candidate as an initial salary offers averaging $40,616 a year, master's degree candidates received an average offer of $44,080, and Ph.D. candidates were offered $62,280.
