CIVIL ENGINEERING


Prof. Sohail Qureshi
Civil engineering is a major field of engineering that deals with planning, construction, and maintenance of fixed structures, or public works, as they are related to earth, water, or civilization and their processes. Mostly civil engineering today deals with power plants, bridges, roads, railways, structures, water supply, irrigation, the natural environment, sewer, flood control, earthquake resistant structures, transportation and traffic. In essence, civil engineering may be regarded as the profession that makes the world a more agreeable place to live.

The Department of Civil Engineering has been one of the finest departments of the college. It has been involved in making professional Civil engineers. The vision of this department is to shape infrastructure development with societal focus. The department of Civil Engineering offers a program in Civil Engineering at B.E level .The Department has its own labs which are equipped with well maintained machines and instruments.

JOB PROSPECTS

Civil engineers are employed in all the major construction projects carried out by the state or central government. Civil Engineers can find job in Government departments, private and public sector industries, research and teaching institutions etc. Job opportunities for civil engineers are expected to increase as fast as the average for all jobs, although the construction industry is vulnerable to fluctuations in the economy. Civil engineers will always be needed to maintain and repair existing facilities and structures and to construct new ones. After doing B.E, one can look for jobs in road projects, building work, consultancy firms, quality testing laboratories or housing societies. Experts say there is a high demand for experienced civil engineers in developing countries.
