Civil engineering is a good career in the same way acting is a good career: its only good if you reach the top. In recent years, it has become increasingly difficult for civil engineers to find jobs in the core industry, This is especially true for civil engineering freshers who are often not hired with the same intensity as CS and IT engineers. If you're the topper of your civil branch and are swimming in offers from various mega-construction companies, civil engineering is a great career. If you're a normal student working in civil engineering department and you have to compromise with a low paying IT job, civil engineering is not the right choice.
