Hello There! Looking at your query I am very happy that somebody out there is thinking of different career path instead of following the herd. Your query made me feel to answer this instantly and I am very happy that I will be able to guide you in this.


I am an Educationist and have been counselling students in engineering / commerce / management / law streams for more than seven years and also have been into teaching and writing in career management for more than ten years now. I am also a consultant to India's Only Dedicated Construction B-School based in Shivaji Nagar Pune.

Civil Engineering as you know that it is a very technical and site oriented field with lot of work with labours, materials. I regard Civil Engineers as Nation Builders since you are the ones who literally build the nation for infrastructure. Infrastructure and Construction industry has been the top priority for the govt of India and investments upto $One Trillion are expected in this sector. Out of this fifty (50) percent are expected from private sector companies like Larsen & Toubro, etc.

Civil Engineers especially fresh civil engineers are facing a very TOUGH TIME in the industry since theya re given low end jobs, low paid jobs and due ot lack of emplyable and industry required skills they suffer from uncertain career growth and are always involved in technical and site work.

It is time for Civil and Mechanical Engineers to learn the industry required skills and that is Construction & Project Management. Here Construction and Project Management is NOT a technical one but management oriented. Construction industry today requires managerial and business skills and therefore it is wanting Civil Engineers to learn this for being employable.

What is Construction & Project Management can be seen from the below diagram:


If you as a Civil Engineer wishes to have a job in the non-technical field then learning business management oriented construction and project management is very necessary. According to the 2013 statistics and survey, over Ten Lakh (10,00,000) project management professionals are required annually.
Looking at this scope, I definitely can say that Civil Engineers have a great career opportunity.

Samvit School of Infrastructure Business based in Shivaji Nagar, Pune offers Two Year Full Time PG Diploma in Infrastructure Business which is focused on Construction and Project Management. Through this you will get an opportunity to work with big corporates like Larsen & Toubro, etc as Sr. Engineer, Assistant Manager, etc. with a minimum pay package of Rs. 4.00 lacs p.a.

I hope that for you this course is the most apt.

Best Luck.
