The graduates in Civil Engineering degree plays a vital role in fulfilling the societal infra-structural needs and demand. With India being a developing country and one of the fastest growing economy has created wide scope for civil engineers.
The Civil Engineering degree course focuses on planning and designing of industrial and residential buildings, hydraulic structure, water supply and sanitation systems and transportation infrastructure.
After the successful completion of course graduates have wide opportunities to work in private and public sectors and industries (L & T, Gammon India, GMR, HCC, etc…). Graduates also have scope for pursuing higher studies and/or research.
