 Course Overview

Civil Engineering is considered as one of the oldest engineering disciplines. It involves planning, designing and executing structural work. The profession deals with the wide variety of tasks, including designing, supervision and construction activities of public works like roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings, airports, Dams, water works, sewage system ports etc. and offers a multitude of challenging career opportunities.

A civil engineer is responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale and maintenance of the assets. A civil engineer requires not only a high standard of engineering knowledge, but also supervisory and administrative skills. The planning part of their work involves site investigations, feasibility studies, creating solutions to complications that may occur and the actual designing of structures. They have to work with the guidelines of the local Govt. authority and get plans approved by the relevant authority. They prepare cost estimates and sets construction schedules. Construction work involves dealing with clients, architects, Govt. officials, contractors and the supervision of the work according to standards.

Their   work also involves the maintenance and repair of the project.


Course Curriculum includes :

       •    Construction Materials & Testing

•    Surveying

•    Civil Engineering Drawing with AutoCAD

•    Transportation Engineering (Road, Bridges, Railway, Harbor)

•    Concrete Technology & Soil Mechanics

•    Building Construction Systems

•     Irrigation Engineering

•    Environmental Engineering

•    Theory & Design of Structure

•    Construction Management

•    Estimating & Costing


 Special Features of the Course :

 After completing this diploma, one can specialized as;

  • Draftsman in construction and architectural firm working with computer aided drawing packages.

  • Assist to designer / Investigator in engineering consulting firms, assisting in design aspects of various structures.

  • Surveyor / Supervisor on construction site looking after construction processes, dimensional control, quality control and finishing of different components of structure.

  • Assist to designer / Investigator Research & Development technician in laboratories to conduct experiments and note down observation for analysis of components of structure.

  • Sales   Engineer   in   marketing   of   civil engineering materials, products, Instruments & machinery.   

  • Installation   Engineer  for  Landscape  and Micro irrigation systems.

  • Supervisor in Ready-mix concrete plants, pre-cast   engineering   products   and   pre-engineered buildings.


Employment Prospects

  • Work as a supervisor/Overseer/Junior Engineer in government or private firms. The network of highways and railways is under expansion where there is demand of & Civil Engineers. MHADA is taking up the work of slum rehabilitation by constructing housing colonies which requires civil engineers.

  • Register himself as a contractor with CPWD,' Railways,      Water     supply     &      Irrigation department,   CIDCO,   PWD,   MHADA,   and Municipal corporations Etc.

  • A licensed surveyor in private and government firms.

  • An entrepreneur and start his own business in construction work

Work Environment

Basically a civil engineer has to work on site for supervision, achieving quality control and execution of various civil works in extreme weather conditions. But at times he has to work in office also for doing planning and designing, estimating & Tendering or doing lessoning work. He has to prepare layouts of building or ammonia prints of different structural drawings of various civil engineering structures.


Career Progression

Civil engineering is a vast field that includes career prospects in the field of structures, geo technical engineering, transportation engineering, and environmental engineering and water resources. A civil engineer has a challenging and extremely satisfying role in the society. He has the opportunity to help his fellow men both in our country and through out the world by improving the living standards and quality of life of the population. He is responsible for improving the facilities and systems (hat make up the civil infrastructure.The important facilities include, buildings, bridges. Roads, dams, railways and air ports. The critical systems include Transportation Networks, Water and Power Distribution Systems and Environment protection systems. A civil engineer is responsible for designing, constructing and operating these improved facilities and systems. .

A Civil Engineer is a master builder who creates structures, projects and systems which are timeless symbols of our civilization.

Advancement opportunities exists in government and private sectors. A diploma holder may start as a supervisor but based on his experience and performance can rise to the level of a project manager. Construction industry in India is on way to expansion and there is a need of about 30,000 fresh civil engineers every year besides various other middle and senior level managers.
