CAREER OPTIONS AFTER DIPLOMA IN CIVIL ENGINEERING

Civil Engineering is the art and mechanism of directing the power in nature for the use and convenience of man. It is an art to create the developed world around us; Civil engineering is one of the oldest disciplines of engineering. It is related to the study of physical things like buildings, roads, dams. A civil engineer deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of these physical constructions. There are many sub-disciplines under civil engineering. Some of them are Architectural, Environmental, Geo-technical, Geophysics, Geodesy, Structural, Earthquake, Transportation, Atmospheric, Surveying, Construction, etc. The Diploma in Civil engineering a short term course that provides basic and firm knowledge in the field of civil and construction. Although Polytechnic Diploma programs are full-fledged technical degree courses run and approved by AICTE/All India Council for Technical Education, these courses are specifically defined at helping students learn the practical aspects and basics of the respective study stream or the subject. Therefore, if you want to expand the horizons of your knowledge, it is important to pursue further studies after the completion of Civil Diploma course.
