    Civil Engineering (vs) Electrical engineering with respect to job opportunities, creativity & pay packages?

    Hello everyone, just sharing my dilemma with you guys. I'm about to further my study soon for my degree and yet i still haven't decide on what cost should i be taking. i mean i do have this two cost that i think i would like to take for my degree but having to say this i know i can only choose one them which really gives me such a headache!

    CIVIL ENGINEERING.

    I've been wanting to be in this field for so long now but recently i found out that there are not so many things to do as a civil engineer as most of the job are already done by the architect and plan designer. this some what give me a second thought on choosing this field for my degree cost as im a kind of person who don't like to do nothing. i know its not like i will not do nothing at all but it is just not as adventurous as an electrical engineer does. ( i think)

    ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING.

    i would like to put my self in this field as i think this is a field that enables me to put my creativity to the limit. i say this because unlike civil engineer, electrical engineering will allow me to work in many other field such in the construction field, industrial field as well as mass telecommunication field. this field also enables me to create new invention ( which had been my passion since i was a small kid) through electrical manipulation.

    so basically what i am trying to ask is...

    WHICH ONE IS BETTER? CIVIL OR ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING?
    WHICH HAS HIGHER PAY?

    i would also like to know...

    WHAT IS THE JOB PROSPECT AS A CIVIL/ELECTRICAL ENGINEER?

    i really do hope someone could answer this so that i could end my dilemma as soon as possible. thx.

    Civil Engineering and Electrical engineering both are the good fields in their own field.One can opt these according to their interest.Dear Aspirant choosing any area is depend on the personal liking towards the field.Personal liking as well as Interest varies from person to person.It is nor necessary that if I like CS branch then you must also like CS branch.There may be some possibility of coincident that you may also like.But dear aspirant it completely depend on your interest to choose.
    At the Present time Civil Engineers are most demanding as compare to the Electrical Engineers.

    However If one is best in his/her own way then no one is here who can stop you to get the success.So I will advice you to go in that field in which you are interested more.If you will go to your Favorited field then you can also easily excel in that particular field.Decision is in your hand so take it very carefully.

    !!All The Best!!

    Re: Civil Engineering (vs) Electrical engineering with respect to job opportunities, creativity & pay packages?

    My dear friend

    Both Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering are well known Engineering Branches.
    Both encompasses large number of Opportunities.

    But first of all i would like to clear some of your doubts regarding Civil Engineering.



    Civil Engineering is the most productive Engineering Field these days.
    Civil Engineers are also paid very well.

    Here are some of the fields of Civil Engineering:



    Role of a Civil Engineer:

    --> Measure and map the earthís surface.

    --> Plan new townships and extension of existing towns.

    --> Build the suitable structures for the rural and urban areas for various utilities.

    --> Build tanks and dams to exploit water resources.

    --> Build river navigation and flood control projects.

    --> Build canals and distributaries to take water to agricultural fields.

    --> Purify and supply water to the needy areas like houses, schools, offices etc.

    --> Provide and maintain communication systems like roads, railways, harbours and airports.

    --> Devise systems for control and efficient flow of traffic.

    --> Provide and maintain solid and waste water disposal system.

    --> Monitor land, water and air pollution and take measures to control them.


    So you can see that there are various fields in which Civil Engineers are providing their necessary contribution.
    And this contribution my friend can not be neglected.
    That is the main reason why Civil Engineers are Paid so well.




    Now talking about Electrical Engineering i would say that it is one of the oldest Engineering Streams.

    It is also very Productive and has a vast scope.

    Electrical Engineers can work in the following:

    --> Electricity Department

    --> ONGC

    --> BHEL

    --> Swaraj

    --> Mahindra

    --> Godrej

    --> Railways

    --> Defense etc.



    So i have told you the necessary things.
    I hope it will be a lot easier for you to choose now.

    So choose wisely my friend.
    Best of Luck.

    Regards
    tanveersandhu.

    It's always electrical engineering without doubt because girls not affords to do something outside and most of the girls like to do work in offices that's why

    ***Civil vs Electrical***

    Although civil is the most intresting and outnumbers electrical in pay packege. There are handsome amount paid by companies like Hirachandani, India bulls to civil engineers.
    But apart from this there is a fact that there are vary less highers for them.
    On the other hand electrical remains dominating field as number of heigering companies are more. You have good job security with this stream.
    Disigon is yours.
    Good luck.
