    Both are having better scopes. But civil engineering is considered to be the emerging field in the near future. You can choose either one of the courses depending upon your interest. Hope the answer is satisfactory. All The Best.

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    Both the courses are equally good and have good job opportunities.
    Both are core branches of engineering.
    Civil engineering has gained a momentum in the past years with the
    infrastructure sector on boom in our country. So there are and will be
    lots of opportunities being created in this sector.
    Whereas electrical engineering is a evergreen branch and is a
    more diversified branch then civil.
    After doing civil engineering you can get jobs mainly in infrastructure companies,
    But after electrical engineering you can work in every sector as in every
    sector there is a requirement of Electrical engineers.
    So i think you should go for electrical engineering.
    Rest depends on your intrest and liking.

    according to the present scenario............................
    ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING is best as there are job opportunities in it rather then in civil engineering......................

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    i will suggest you to opt for CIVIL engineering

    reasons :

    1) The course complexity for civil engineering is less than electrical
    2) Since infrastructure is the next generations booming industry you will be getting best chances
    3) you can design for construction companies
    4) you will get government jobs in the fields of surveys and registration industries
    5) you will get higher pay compared to the electrical Engineers

    all the best

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    In terms of employment opportunities, electrical is far ahead of civil, but dont think there is a paucity of job in civil.
    There are maximum jobs in govt sector too for electrical qwing to the importance of electronics.
    But due to ongoing construction in metros & rural development , there is an upsurge in civil sector also.
    But your criteria of selection should not be the placement but your interest in subject.

    Both the branches are considered to be evergreen branches.
    Both are equally good branches , it depends only on the field of interest of students to choose there branch.
    But for knowledge , currently electrical engineering is choosen more by students as compared to civil engineering.

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    Electrical engineers have their place that is just as important as Civil engineering.
    One will never be "better" than the other... we will always need someone to be able to design a building site plan,
    and engineer highway systems. .
    You should really just chose whichever one you prefer, regardless of the job opportunities they present.
    Now this is depend on you my dear what you choose.

    i suggest u to prefer electrical engineering because if you complete your engineering as a electrical engineer the change of getting jobs not only in your stream but also in IT field u can get but in civil its not like t hat so better choose electrical

    Hi Guest
    According to me both courses are good, but i give extra marks for civil. So you better opt for civil as it has no recession in the future

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    Both the options that are- Electrical Engineering and Civil Engineering have a good scope to develop into a very wise career option and can result into high remuneration and a satisfactory position in the organization.
    But which field to be chosen depends on your personal interests as well as your potential to deal with the problems arising in that area.
    You can go for Electrical Engineering if it suits your interests , in other words if you are keen to learn about or develop new means and methods to generate Electricity or are very clear with the concepts relating to
    Electricity.

    You can pursue Civil Engineering if you are very keen to develop designs for new infrastructures. The rising growth of infrastructure sector has contributed to the chances of Civil Engineering being a very good career option as it has increased the demand for Civil engineers.

    India is the Developing country.
    An developing country need developers.
    the country will look develop when the bridge, building's, roads etc are made excellent.
    so according to me civil engineering is most better in INDIA.
    best of luck...............

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    dear friend,



    both engg. having better scope, but in present the civil engg. having good scope and opportunities. there are various contruction work done in india. so the requirement of civil engg. is more.

    thus the civil engg. is better than the electrical engg.

    GUD LUCK

    Hi friend,
    Both the branches are better only.
    Every branch has its own specialty.
    Choose your branch according to your interest.
    Civil and electrical engineering have a very good future in both private as well as government sector.
    If you are interested in physics with mechanics, frames, motions etc go for civil otherwise if you are interested in current, resistors , generators then go for electrical....,
    good luck.

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    my friend both the engg fields have a very good scope its that u have to be confident and hard working so that u get high paid jobs..
    in my view electrical is much better as this field is a universal field..u get placed in almost each and every sector as electricity is used everywhere!!

    so my friend u get jobs and that with high packages in top MNCs, research labs as the main tecnical head for designing and repairing their electronic circuits for signalling,communication and research works, in industries as the top technical chief, in the govt.power plants, hydrolic power setups,etc..

    all the best..

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    Both the courses are better and both have almost same scope.
    However,in coming future,civil engineering will emerge as job oriented course but the electrical branch will also be in demand.
    You should first analyse your interest and then choose one of these.
    Best of luck.

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    It depends on your interest . you may select according to the subjects that you are so good at performance,if you are good in Physics circuitry then better go for Electrical or electronics branches.
    Or else you are interested in Mathematical application such as measurements,surveys,building designing,planning etc you can go for Civil engineering.

    But according to me Both engineering branches are Evergreen and are best to take any one according to the area of interest.

    All The Best

    Electrical Engineering is better as comparsion of Civil Engineering.But both of them have more scope.

    Electrical Engineering branch have easier and no complexcity in courses and easily understand so you prefer Electrical Engineering branch.

    Placement procedure are very differcult in Civil Engineering.

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    Now a day both fields are on the high demand so it is very difficult to find the difference that which one is better. If you want to study in one then decide in which field you have more interest according to your interest you can choose. As you can see on your self that both are on the high demand in this market we also need civil or electrical engineer. So according to your interest you can decide which you like.

    Re: Which is better, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering?

    Both Electrical Engineering and Civil Engineering has job opportunities and scope around the world.It depends upon your area of interest in which field you wants to make your career,both will provide you equal opportunities to grow or to develop.
    If you are interest in electrical field then go for Electrical Engineering but if you are interest in infrastructure or innovative in nature then go for civil engineering.
    According to my opinion you should go with Civil Engineering ,as it is always on Boom and having maximum job opportunities in Private as well as Government sector also..................
    ..............GOOD LUCK......................
