From second year students will be more focused towards core subject studies. Few of the subjects taught in these four years are Fluid Mechanics, Soil Mechanics, Design of Structures, and Structural Mechanics and water recourse engineering. Students are also partly exposed to subjects like Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Remote Sensing, Transportation Systems Engineering..etc.

A bachelor degree in civil engineering will give good opportunities in industry as India is moving fast forward for infrastructure development and one the same time leave a good space for higher studies at home and abroad like MS in civil engineering.

    Hi,
    In 2009, I completed B.Tech in Civil Engineering, but did not join core sector and joined one of the Tier I Software Company. This job I got through Campus Interview and did not wanted to go for higher studies as that time it was not feasible due to some family problems. Now I feel like quitting and going back to core sector as the work here I don’t find like some real work. I am good here at work and I understand things quickly too, but I don’t find any seriousness in the work here. I always wanted to do some real kind of job in which I will have some control over the things. Kindly guide me, shall I now go for M.Tech through GATE. I am even willing to prepare for GATE 2012. I know, I am a little late, but will work hard and cover up the things fast. Please guide me if I can get admitted in any coaching institute for GATE preparation. Please give your valuable advice as this is going to be deciding factor for my career.
