B.E. Civil Engineering


Civil Engineering in PERI IT is your stepping stone into the world of buildings and structures. Civil engineers work with the design, construction and maintenance of different structures in both public and private sectors. Civil work spans large structures like dams, bridges and multi-storey buildings to small structures such as individual homes. The vast nature of this field ensures that there is a steady demand for civil engineers.
