Hello everyone,

I am new in this forum, and I hope our experienced engineers will help in my day to day problems.

I will start from a short self intro, I am a graduate Civil Engineer and having near about 2 years of experience in Project Management of Transmission line construction, I have even worked in residential building construction for a month as a site engineer.

My many friends as well as my superiors often says that transmission line is not good enough for a Civil Engineer, this is making me confussed. So, that is why I want help from you people regarding this, and if your answer is also same then which field of civil engineering is good.

Regards

If I am not mistaken, if you are planning to keep working in India, this is a great time for the large-scale construction/development projects.

If you have knowledge of structural engineers, you can find that the work related to retrofits, upgrades, restorations, and safety is great in existing structures as well.

I think it is all about what you truly love to do. For example, there's GeoTechnology, Water resources, Transportation, Environmental or Construction Management. You can choose something and then go at it fully.
It's a matter of preference.

I am sure they all pretty much pay the same at entry level.

Hence, you might as well do yourself a favor and work in a field you like.

Unfortunately I do not have much idea about Transmission Line construction but I think that in general Construction Project management is quite challenging and interesting at the same time, be it for a house, a skyscraper or for transmission lines.

If you have 2 years experience in it and are enjoying the work, I think it doesn't really matter what your friends or superiors say.

There is no particular good field in Civil Engg., all are good or bad depending on your perception. Just because I hate Bollywood movies doesn't mean they are bad in general (or are they? 馃槢)
