Civil Engineering Admissions
Courses & Duration
In Civil Engineering, the student will go through Architecture, Design and planning, Construction methodologies and etc.,
You can choose the Civil Engineering, after 12th Science.
The academic criterion of Civil Engineering is divided into three courses/programmes as follows:
- Diploma courses leading to the polytechnic diploma of 3 years duration.
- UG courses leading to the B.E. (Bachelor of Engineering) / B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree of 4 years duration.
- PG courses leading to the M.E. (Master of Engineering) / M.Tech (Master of Technology) degree of 2 years duration.
Beside these, it is one of the broad research fields leading to the PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree.
Here we have mentioned the basic eligibility of various diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate courses:
After the completion of 10th standard, you are only eligible to enter the diploma courses.
Once you have done the 12th standard you are fully eligible to choose the UG (B.Tech) programme.
For entering in Civil Engineering, either in diploma or UG, mathematics & science are the compulsory and has to be in qualifying examination.
For entering in PG (M.Tech) programme, B.Tech/B.E in Civil Engineering is must.
So now, you have a complete package of education in Civil Engineering after 12th upto research programme.
Various colleges and universities offer admissions to students through entrance tests. The entrance exams are organized at national, state or university level by the respective authorities. While some other institutions give admissions on the basis of merit list of the qualifying examination.
For admissions in B.E/B.Tech courses, admissions will be done through JEE Main examination.
