The modern industrialized world at present has made the construction industry to play a major role in the field of economy. It has become an important means for a countrys growth. Building construction is the process of adding structure or assembling of infra structure, for roads, buildings, airports, bridges or anything. The civil engineers are those who design these things. In our day to day life we come across a numerous things, which we would not have got into use, without the help of civil engineers. They sketch up the outlook of these roads or buildings and as per their designs; the roads are constructed. Civil Engineers are those who built a real city, from roads and bridges to tunnels, public buildings, and sewer systems.

There are several factors that a civil engineer must consider, before getting into construction. They must be aware of the cost and also make sure that the structure remains consistent during bad weather. There are different forms in which a civil engineer could work. They may work in design, construction, research, and teaching. Most of them prefer to handle people and projects. Civil engineering specialties include structural, construction, environment, and transportation.

Generally, a construction process consists of three phases: preconstruction planning, implementation, and infrastructure maintenance. Under the preconstruction phase, surveying a land or property is done initially. Then plans are reviewed and funding is made. After that the schedule is decided to start the construction. Construction begins in the implementation phase. Most of the civil engineers spend a considerable time on-site reviewing the progress of construction. They also co-ordinate the employees, so that the construction work could be finished at the earliest. Finally the infrastructure maintenance phase involves evaluations and stress tests. This takes place after the construction work gets over. All the final adjustments are made and with the paper works being documented, the process gets finished.

The civil engineers usually prefer to work in manufacturing and business areas. A Civil engineer need to be creative, curious, analytical, and detail-oriented. Most of the male students are crazy about such jobs, where they could design things and construct them accordingly. Initially, to qualify for a job as a civil engineer, you need to hold a degree in civil engineering. At the beginning, some engineers work under an experienced engineer to learn things in a perfect and effective way. They also require four years of work experience from a reputed firm.

It is estimated that there would be a higher scope for civil engineering jobs in future. Within 2018, the demand for civil engineers may increase and jobs would be offered to a plenty of people. The rapid increase in population has led engineers to build things. Also, in this current modern world old buildings are getting reconstructed as per the trends. Hence within a few years, the construction industry would take the leading business, thereby providing jobs for civil engineers.
