Civil engineering is an important branch of engineering which involves building skyscrapers ,huge & vast structures as well as designing & building roads, bridges, railway tracks, flyovers, highways etc. civil engineers are also responsible for the construction of mega structures like dams, or blockway across the sea etc. Anyone fond of structures like burj-khalifa or the famous Bandra worli sea link may have something ‘CIVIL’ in his blood. Civil is nowadays termed as the most valuable branch & is in quite demand these days due to focus of government on developing infrastructure. Civil requires research team work, leadership and business skills. It’s essential feature, as distinct from science and the arts, is the exercise of imagination. However it requires a broad understanding of scientific principles, knowledge of materials and the art of analysis and synthesis. Huge number of projects involving building & widening national highways, roads, flyovers are being initiated by government to make India a developed nation. Many eminent companies like D.L.F. or building houses like Omaxe, Ansal etc. as well as government branches like P.W.D. or N.H.A.I. which continuously search & hire good civil engineers. FOLLOWING are the specializations which may be carried after b.tech degree in civil:
1. Building Technology and Construction Management (BTCM)
