    Civil Engineering deals with construction of buildings, bridges, land development, soil mechanics or transportation of liquid (fuels, water) from one place to another
    whereas
    Environmental Engineering deals with industrial runoff, superfund sites and how to carry out a job without disturbing environment.

    All the Best.

    Hi aspirant,

    Civil Engineering:

    It is not only a oldest but also finest branches of engineering.
    It was introduced in the 19th century to teach essential need of proper planning and designing.
    So its basic scope of teaching was various engineering practices such as designing, construction, development, supervisions of tunnels, roads, buildings, highways, dams, and sewage systems.

    Its a very challenging career with lots of opportunities.
    Students with good quality of technical as well as administrative skills are required in this field.
    Civil engineers do the works like site investigation, creating solution to the existing problem, doing feasibility study of structural work.

    They have a lot of contribution in the success of
    Buildings new homes
    Designing buildings
    Building traffic lights
    Highways
    Building bridges
    Providing industrial facilities
    Constructing recycling plants.
    Growth opportunities in upcoming years of India depends entirely on the progress of civil Engineering Technology.
    There are ample opportunities provided in various fields.
    Engineers in this field are employed in construction projects which is been carried out by the government.
    There are scope of work involves public development works like
    Airports
    Highways
    Sewage boards
    Railways

    Environmental Engineering:

    Its the science introduced to control the environmental problems through modern technology.
    This field deals with the environment which is in urban and rural areas.
    The sole purpose of environmental engineers is to deal with the waste management produced by the industries, which is very hazardous for the environment.


    Engineers develop solutions to control the waste which is in the atmosphere by applying principles of waste management, emission management.
    So they try to build equipments or devices or control measures which will help in designing, constructing and maintaining the system to handle all these parameters.
    They are working atleast in managing this hazardous impacts so that their impact will not grow in near future.

    There are lucrative opportunities available for graduates of Environmental Science in various fields. Some of those fields are
    Research Services
    Environment Journalist
    Lecturer
    Research Assistant
    Development Services
    Environmental Journalism
    Environmental Modeling.
    Director of Waste Management
    Research Scientist


    ALL THE BEST
