B.Tech Civil Engineering and M. Tech. Transportation Engineering
Civil Engineers deal with the design, construction and maintenance of infrastructure such as buildings, bridges, roads, tunnels, dams, river & shipping lanes, industrial & power plants. Though civil engineers also supervise construction of built environments, they normally do not involve in the design of the same. Their forte remains infrastructure building. For being a successful civil engineer you must be willing to relocate as the projects can be at far flung places.
Core subjects of civil Engineering in most institutes include Surveying, Strength of Materials, Building Technology, Structural Analysis & Design, Design of Hydraulic Structures, Architecture and Town Planning.
After completing a BTech/BE, you can opt for MTech/MS in various specialisations such as Transportation Systems, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Remote Sensing, Hydraulic & Water Resources, Environmental Engineering & Management.
Transportation engineering is a sub-discipline of Civil Engineering. It deals with the application of the principles of technology and science to the planning, operation and management of various facilities for various modes of transportation. A student gets some experience on the functional design of transportation thus ensuring safety, speed, convenience, comfort and economy of the mode of transportation. They also learn to take into account the compatibility of a transport mode in movement of people and goods.
