What is civil engineering? 

Civil engineering is the branch of engineering which deals with the construction & planning of public Works such as bridges, dams, tunnels, buildings, roads, airport, railway lines etc.

We will do in-depth analysis of B.E / B.tech. Civil Engineering Course. It is one such branch that affects almost all walks of life. For this reason, it is also a Civil Engieering- Evergreen Branch branch, which has provided a substantial amount of job opportunities for graduates. In this article, I will provide information like basic course description, duration, Salary, Courses to do after B.E / B.TECH. Civil engineering, scope and job opportunities after graduation.

Civil engineering is one of the oldest, traditional branches of engineering. It is a core branch as well as evergreen, talking about job opportunities. Come, see the details of the basic course
B.E./B.TECH. Civil Engineering: Basic Course Details
It is a 4-year undergraduate degree program. The 4-year term is divided into 8 semesters, each lasting a period of 6 months. During each semester, students will have to deal with different sets of theoretical subjects as well as practical sessions.

 Civil engineering discipline does great things like planning, constructing and maintaining structures like Buildings, Roads, Stadiums, Dams etc. is . Thus, one can say that this branch of Engineering deals with the construction and planning of structures related to personal (public) use such as building houses, developing utility structures like railway lines etc. That is why I mentioned above Has done that it is the branch that affects almost all the areas of human life.

To understand better about BE / B.Tech (B.E / B.TECH). I have prepared a small list, let's know how to get admission in Civil Engineering and which subjects to study in Civil Engineering.

B.E./B.TECH: Important Subjects

I have mentioned here only the names of some important subjects. I hope readers will get a better idea about the course structure after visiting this list. In the first two semesters, the common set of subjects exists, just like any other engineering branch.


Subjects For First-Year Students in Civil Engineering Branch

It is not that you become an engineer just after reading books, along with this we have to do a lot of practicals.

Let us now know what it takes to become a civil engineer, 

what is eligibility ?


Eligibility Criteria for Civil Engineering 

(PCMB) 10 + 2 Science Stream (Physics) students with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics subjects who have passed the 12th board examination from a recognized board are eligible to pursue this course. In the case of many institutions the minimum mark criteria may exist. Generally, it is between 40-50% marks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics subjects. Students should also appear for the state level entrance examination to get admission in reputed institutions.
Courses to Do After B.E./B.TECH. Civil Engineering
We can study even after BE / B.TECH, we can do a lot of courses even after graduation such as Piping Technology, Safety Management etc. We can also do Master Courses if you wish. M.TECH comes as some of the best major branches of masters like
structural engineering, civil engineering (general), transportation engineering, coastal structures engineering, construction management etc.


Streams of civil engineering :-

1) structural engineering
2) Geotech engineering
3) water resources engineering
4) surveying 
5) Environmental engineering
6) construction project management


Roles of civil engineering :- 

1) site supervisor
2) drafting work 
3) design of structural components
