B.E | Civil Engineering

Course Overview


What do Civil Engineers do?
If you have a slightly creative bent of mind, andinterested in construction, design and planning, then civil engineering is the right choice for you. Civil engineering has remained as an evergreen career is, we orchestrate the rise of marvellous concrete monuments and structures from mere sketches. We create tangible physical structures such as roads, dams, and even towering skyscrapers that dot the skyline of the 21st century modern cities. We address issues of sustainability by designing basic components of the built environment; energy, water supply and waste treatment. This discipline spans over five areas of specialization namely Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Hydraulics and Environmental Engineering.


What are the job opportunities for Civil Engineers?
CMRIT’s Department of Civil Engineering is driven by experienced and research oriented faculty who motivate the students to pursue their ambitions and interests. Some of the various organizations that look out for our endowed young aspirants are L&T, Gammon India, Tata Consultancy Engineers, AFCONS Infrastructures, ACC Cements, and Governmental Organizations like ISRO, DRDO. Civil engineers also have promising careers in different architectural and interior designing organisations wherein they can showcase their creativity.  Many excellent job opportunities as Civil Engineers in the Middle East countries as well.

What are some emerging trends in the field?

Civil Engineers are in great demand in various fields some of them to name as:Cost effective construction which is gaining importance to reach a much wider spectrum of society, development of advanced building materials using Nano-technology to improve sustainability within the Green world, Remote Sensing and GIS that forms the backbone for natural resources management and intelligent transport systems that form our main communication links in urban India, Disaster Management that is mandatory in response to man-made and natural hazards. All these areas have their foundation in the civil engineering discipline, thus making it an evergreen branch for construction and research.


Civil Engineering has evolved from a stream focused on construction to one that now emphasises new inter-disciplinary areas of research.
