Both are good. Here I am sharing job prospects of both mechanical and civil engineering. If you are a Civil engineering graduate, you have many options and only prerequisite to be successful is to ensure thorough understanding of the concepts and application part of all the courses that are taught during your 4 years B.Tech program. Note that “there is no short cut to success”. You can go for higher studies in India or abroad, government sectors jobs like IES / IAS, PSUs, private jobs in major construction companies like L&T, Tata projects, Gammon India, HCC, SPCL, etc. Last but not the least, you can also opt teaching profession and join any academic institution as Lecturer / Assistant Professor after post-graduation (minimum) and then PhD, which is a must degree to survive longer in Academics. IES / Civil Services Exam by UPSC GATE Exams Pursuing Higher Studies (M.Tech/ MBA) Higher Studies Abroad Law / Arbitration / Auditing Interior Designing Another upcoming field of interior designing that requires some certification course. There are many institutions offer a certification course on interior design. If you have a passion, just do it!! Many big players are waiting to hire you!! NCU has an unmatched campus placement record of more than 90% placements of eligible students every year in prestigious companies with superior annual packages in companies like Maruti Suziki, CB&I, Daikin Air Conditioners, Denso, Subros, JBM group, Fluor, Sona etc. for Mechanical Engineering.

As a civil engineer, I will have to say concede and admit defeat to mechanical engineering in terms of job prospects. For us civil engineers, job prospects have never been bleaker. Core companies don't want to take a risk and hire freshers like me. Even the topper of our branch was forced to accept a low paying job at a core company as the organization wasn't sure if he would fit the bill. My fellow friends in mechanical engineering aren't very far ahead of us, but they still have much better prospects. Mechanical engineers can fit into any mold, be it IT or electrical, electronics or automation. Their adaptability is their biggest asset. That is why no matter what industry is booming, mechanical engineers will usually land on their feet. I can't say the same for any other branch.
