A doctorate in Civil Engineering is a preferred choice among technical graduates from the same discipline or otherwise. Most of the academicians who enrol on the course, aim for research. However, a significant proportion of civil engineers choose to work in specialized sub-domains such as safety engineering which involves estimation of insurance losses during a man-made or natural catastrophe, advanced safety analysis, structural endurance planning, et cetera.
Of all the popular misbeliefs about the Civil Engineering industry, the most common is the perception that Civil Engineering does not involve practical concepts from various intriguing domains such as Mathematics and Computer Science. Although, the truth is that the greater part of what incorporates the Computer Science domain was earlier effectuated through Civil Engineering.
The future of Civil Engineering as described by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is the Mega City concept from the Future World Vision. The Future World Vision describes the plausible idea of a Mega City (currently being researched), where the evolution of infrastructure and construction would be beyond imagination. This concept lays out the future for those working or willing to make a career in Civil Engineering
