Civil Engineering Subjects

Civil Engineering Subjects – BE Civil Engineering is a four-year engineering degree programme. The construction, design, and maintenance of structures such as bridges, canals, tunnels, buildings, waterworks, and airports are all covered in this course.

For admission to the BE Civil Engineering programme, students must have completed their 10+2 level examinations with physics, chemistry, and mathematics subjects.

Entrance examinations such as JEE Main and JEE Advanced are used to determine admission to Top BE Civil Engineering Colleges. In public institutes, course fees range from INR 1,00,000 to INR 7,00,000, while private engineering colleges charge between INR 3,00,000 and INR 15,00,000.

The study, design, development, and maintenance of the natural and built environment are all aspects of civil engineering. It is one of the few branches of engineering that is unaffected by economic downturns or other factors. When it comes to developing countries like India, it has a lot of potential in the future. Civil engineering encompasses a wide range of topics, including planning, estimation, pollution, and traffic engineering.
