Career Opportunities in Civil Engineering

Civil engineering graduates can look for opportunities in fields such as :

  • Design and construction of civil engineering project
  • Research
  • Teaching

A student can also serve in defense services through special entry like TGC (Technical Graduate Course), SSB etc. Eligible Civil Engineering graduates can work in various departments of government and private sectors as mentioned below:

Sr. No. Designation Duties
1. Construction Engineers
  • Manage construction projects
  • Built in accordance with plans and specifications
  • Design and safety of temporary structures used during construction
2. Geo-technical Engineers
  • Work to make sure that foundations for built objects ranging from streets and buildings to runways and dams are solid
  • They focus on how structures built by civil engineers, such as buildings and tunnels, interact with the earth (including soil and rock)
  • They design and plan for slopes, retaining walls, and tunnels.
3. Structural Engineers
  • Design, analyze and assess major projects, such as buildings, bridges, or dams.
  • To ensure their strength and durability
4. Transportation Engineers
  • Plan, design, operate and maintain everyday systems, such as streets and highways, but they also plan larger projects, such as airports, ship ports, mass transit systems, and harbors.
5. Surveyor
  • Work related to the different types of survey at initial stages.
  • Preparation of work plan and drawing of a project


  • Civil engineers also work in the construction site along with the offices.
  • Structural engineers ensure that a load bearing structure framework must be designed to withstand the maximum possible load for which the structure is to be used. The latest developments in construction techniques and materials for the structure to be weather resistant.
  • Several civil engineering sites are worked upon simultaneously by the same civil contracting and consulting engineers.
  • Design of water supply systems, minimization of losses in water supply, control of pollution in sewage system are design by environment and water resources engineers.
  • Highway engineers design both traffic management and roads cross-section according to the local traffic count.
  • Civil Engineers design according to minimize the effect of any natural calamity.


Opportunities for Civil engineering graduates exist not only in government organizations such as Airways, Highways, Railways, DMRC, NMRC, GAIL, NTPC, RES, ONGC, EIL and IOCL; but also in private sectors including MNCs as, ESSAR, GMR, L&T, HCC, CCCL, TCE, TECHNIP, SHAPOORJI PALLONJI GROUP etc.
