Scope of civil engineering in india on Biteable.

Common scope related questions in civil engineering

  1. Are civil engineers in high Demand ?
  2. What is scope of various streams in civil engineering ?
  3. What is average salary of civil engineer ?
  4. What to do after B.Tech ??
  5. Future technology, Softwares and Innovations in civil engineering

ARE CIVIL ENGINEERS IN HIGH DEMAND ?

The scope of Civil engineering is very diversified in India and around the world.

There are lot of development activities going on in this world. In many gulf and other countries after the design life of structure is completed the building is demolished by a method of implosion and new structure is being built in its place.

Now a days Water treatment and sewage treatment plants are constructed for treating sewage and waste water from houses, commercial spaces and Industries.

Civil engineers are required for the infrastructure development of the country by constructing dams, bridges , metros , monorails etc. For all these civil engineers are required.

Now a days everyone want things to be done in rapid pace, this is achieved by 3d printing houses.

Livable houses are actually printed in real quick time. For this too civil engineers are required.

Considering all the above, it is clear that the scope of civil engineering is very wide spread and all civil engineers are much in demand in india.

Civil engineers now are exposed to all latest technologies, concreting techniques, innovations in Formwork designs, Latest paving machines, high end cranes, Automated tools ,Estimation and Structural design softwares

Anyone who has passion to design, aspire to create engineering marvels and who enjoy the process are worth giving a try to make their civil engineering career path a wonderful journey.

What is scope in various streams of civil engineering ?

Job opportunities for civil engineers many now a days. After graduation, engineers have lot of options . They work in municipalities as town planning engineer, Assistant Engineer,Assistant executive engineer and go up to Chief engineer.

WHAT IS AVERAGE SALARY OF CIVIL ENGINEER ?

One should get hold on subjects related to tendering, bidding, design, process, structural and construction for demanding good salaries.

The Salaries mentioned here are AVERAGE SALARIES

Freshers and upto 5 years experience earns around 3-5 lakhs per annum.

5-8 years experience engineers earns around 5-8 Lakhs Per annum.

8-10 years experience engineers earns around 8-10 lakhs per annum.

From 10 years onwards salaries depend on the specialisation that we are into in these years.

Structural engineer, Geo Technical engineer, Site engineer, BIM designer, Quantity surveyor , Planning Engineer earns between 13-19 lacs after 10 -12 years experience.

WHAT IS THE SCOPE AFTER B.TECH ?

First immediate option after bachelors is to go for Post graduate studies. 

General tendency of students after 4 year struggle in college is go and earn.

Some of them who likes any particular subject and who wants to explore more can go for doctorate studies after post graduation.

Along with degree, good experience and subject knowledge can become certified engineers i.e Professional engineer who obtains authority to sign on the construction drawings and permit construction.

After gaining good experience, can start

  • structural engineering consultancy.
  • Quantity estimation consultants,
  • construction material supplier,
  • Form work business,
  • Man power supply i.e free lance designers,
  • structural design consultants,
  • process specialists consultants

YES CIVIL ENGINEERS CAN MAKE DECENT MONEY IF THEY GO FOR CONSULTANCY SERVICES IN THEIR RESPECTIVE FIELD.

Civil engineers can earn lot of money

FUTURE TECHNOLOGY, SOFTWARE AND INNOVATIONS

3d PRINTING

Latest technology in engineering is 3D printing. Houses are directly printed in 3d.

BIM (BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING)

Building information modelling(BIM)  is 3d modelling of the actual project.

Modelling and design is carried out in computers using softwares for better visualisation and to avoid any fouling.

Modelling is done by all the departments Civil, Mechanical Electrical, Process and Instrumentation.

Any overlappings, foulings can be found easily.

Future is very bright for BIM designers.

FUTURE OF CIVIL ENGINEERING CAREER

There are lot of future in all the developing countries. Major aspects to consider for all upcoming engineers or who are planning to take up civil engineering are

  1. Life is tough specially for all site related jobs as we need to go to remote locations and develop it.
  2. Lot of coordination happens with site, clients, consultants, contractor, project vendors and Man power suppliers etc.
  3. Design and execution, lot of focus, attention and decision making skills are required.
  4. There is 200 % satisfaction after project is completed.
  5. Feel very proud as we are part of developing the nation.

Here are some of the civil engineering interview questions and answers for fresh engineers common for all the above subjects.
