Many people doubt the use of C++/C# programming in civil engineering . But we can also make our career in this field as programming is the sole of any civil engineering software .

Also another point I would like to bring is -
Civil Engineering is not limited to the Field work and thus the knowledge of softwares like
Primavera, StadPro,Catia,AutoCAD, SAP, Ravit, etc. have become the need of the hour ...So a Civil engineer need to be a geek too in Programming as well as in Designing...
Do you agree???
@Ankita Katdare • 10 Apr, 2013 • 1 like Hi RISHABH LALA That's a great question you brought up.
I've a friend in IT who is a civil engineer by graduation degree. I happened to ask him the same question. From our discussion I figured out that civil engineers can develop their own programs for research. They can learn languages like C, VB.NET, FORTRAN and MATLAB.
By making small applications, you create products suitable for a civil engineer's needs in the field (like unit converters, a collection of constants & Symbols, small structural analysis softwares). The world is going digital at a rapid rate. So that would be a big plus!

You can learn dynamic simulation of system. There are some great tools available for same like - ExtendSim, GoldSim, Anylogic, Stella etc.
You can also get a job of modifying the source code of existing (open source) civil engineering softwares.

It is a wild open arena out there.

I am sure, this will help to reduce the time which we spend with calculators. If once the program is created sucessfully, then we get the result within a fraction of seconds.
For me, i am created a macros in excel to finish my jobs with a single click. I think its easy to design a simple structure using macros. But for complicated structures need more codings 😛. Since i am not a expert to write the codes. it takes more time to create. So finally i go with manual designs.
