Civil Engineering is one of the oldest branches of Engineering because it deals with the day to day necessities of life and provides for physical infrastructure of our modern society. Civil Engineers are concerned with all types of structures including dams, bridges, pipelines, roads, towers and buildings, transport systems, the design and management of our gas and water supply, sewerage systems, harbors, airports and railways.
Functions
To design, planning, managing and supervise the construction of roads, pavements, hill roads , road drainage system, pipelines, towers and buildings, dams, power stations for electricity, embankments, construction of canals, head works, river training works, cross drainage works, regulatory and other Civil Engineering structures which should be safe, economical and environmentally-sound.
Includes the jobs of detailed surveying, plotting of survey data, preparation of survey maps.
To supervise operations involving proportioning, mixing, transporting, placing, compacting, finishing and curing of concrete.

Further Education

Students can get admission in IInd year Bachelor of Engg. based on merit of Diploma or through entrance exam for further education.
Main Subjects :Three Year Diploma Curricula
Civil engineers may specialize as chief civil engineers, construction engineers, municipal engineers, structural engineers, transport engineers, or water supply distribution engineers.
Civil and public health engineers may work in the private sector as consulting engineers, project managers or construction contractors or in a wide range of government departments.
Work opportunities for civil engineers are affected by fluctuations in the building and construction industry. As a result, the number of opportunities may rise or fall over a short period of time.
Prestigious civil engineering projects such as express highway, Railway project, large dams and various bridges, water Resources and Environmental Projects, Transportation/Traffic in India and abroad require Civil Engineers.
