B.tech. in Civil Engineering is a 4-year full-time undergraduate engineering course. Every college has its own eligibility criteria, admission procedure, syllabus, fees structure, and placement training.
Opportunities on graduating with Civil Engineering:
Civil engineering is the second oldest professional degree in the field of engineering after Mechanical Engineering. It was known as the “Military Engineering” Some of the greatest and global popular monuments like Taj Mahal, Eiffel Tower, Dubai Resort, the great wall of China and recently Burj Khalifa, etc. are the best example to prove that how important and valuable branch of engineering is this.
From road constructions, building constructions, port constructions to river and township planning & construction, and metro rails all are the workplace for civil engineers.
I. Work – Engineering Design
This is the option I pursued moving into downtown Boston and immediately working on large transportation projects including Boston’s Big Dig which at the time was the largest civil engineering project yet accomplished.
II. Work – Infrastructure Inspection
I believe this is one of the harder options to get into as sadly though a lot of current infrastructure (especially in the Northeastern United States) is aging rapidly, governments haven’t been funding the inspection and repair for most of it. In my home state of Massachusetts aging bridges and dams are a huge concern.
III. Work – Construction Management
This would appear to be one of the faster growing areas of Civil Engineering to the point it became a core subject on the Civil Engineering Professional Licensing Exam in 2008. Construction Management does offer by far the highest salary for entry level civil engineers but you give up a lot for the salary. You’ll be on-site working out of construction trailers working 60–80 hours a week in a fast paced and overly demanding field where everyone always seems to be behind schedule. You’ll have to inspect work being done, inspect material delivered to the site, be in constant contact with suppliers to confirm on-time delivery of ordered supply and keep copious records of all activity on site including who was on-site and when they arrived on site, when and what materials were delivered
IV. Graduate School – Engineering
To be perfectly honest, there isn’t a whole lot of reasons to go further in engineering education, particularly a doctorate unless you want to pursue one of two tracts: University Professor or Top of the Line Research.
V. Graduate School – Business
A Business degree is one strong option because it can be used across an array of industries as it teaches universal practices to running a business and with the right business degree and technical (engineering) background a lot of opportunities will open up.
VI. Graduate School – Management
This is a tract I’m currently on. Working as a project engineer earning the experience necessary to test for the Professional Engineer License I saw my career was trending toward becoming a Project Manager next. I had read about a Masters Certificate in Project Management through my local community college that was geared toward passing students through the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification test. I got halfway through that Master’s Certificate (3 of the 6 ten week courses) when I got a job labeled Project Manager III by the company and Site Construction Engineer by the Air Force as an Air Force Contractor overseeing the installation of new radar systems at Air Force Bases all over the globe. Unfortunately 2 years in to that job I had some major medical problems that left me disabled so while I’m working my way back to being able to work I’m pursuing a Masters of Science in Operations and Project Management Online to prove to future employers that I haven’t been slacking off all these years and I’m still capable of fine work despite my disability. I hope to be back to work by the summer of 2020 after completing my degree in the spring.
VII. Graduate School – Urban / City Planning
This is one I know the absolute least about and would not include it save the fact I have seen several do it. It’s logical in some ways, as Civil Engineers we design a lot of the systems that make urban living possible. Clean drinking water, closed sewerage system treatment, transportation networks, so it would seem a natural step to go from trying to design a singular system within the community to designing the community as a whole.
Admission into UG and PG programs of the Institution is based on State level Common entrance test conducted by the Govt. of A.P. The details are as follows.
For U.G Programmes : – for UG programmes, admission of the students into various programs of the institution is based on State level Common Entrance test, EAMCET /ECET, conducted by Government of A.P
For P.G Programmes :- Enrolment of the students into MBA courses is based on the state level common Entrance test, ICET, conducted by the Government of A.P
Enrollment of the students in M.Tech programs is based on PGECET conducted by the Government of A.P and all India GATE exam. There are two categories in admission process.
Category A :- for both U.G and P.G programs 70% seats based on the common entrance test conducted by government of A.P
Category B :- 30% of the seats are filled under Management / NRI category as per the norms / regulations prescribed by the A.P Technical education department.
