What’s Better? Civil Engineering vs. Architecture

Often at crossroads about careers and career paths to be taken, we end up racking our brains to the point of exhaustion. Well, we have a way to help you out. We won’t just choose one over the other for you- because that’s definitely for you to decide. However, we will list out all career opportunities of Civil Engineering and Architecture Courses, so that you can make a decision as freely as you like.

Civil Engineering-and-Architcture

Civil Engineering

Civil Engineers supervise, design, create and maintain projects of construction in the private as well as the public sector. From buildings, bridges, roads, tunnels to airports and dams, etc., it’s the Civil Engineer who is at leverage to design, educate, operate and construct.

Career Opportunities

Architects Architects

Yes, one of the most common career paths after civil engineering is that of an engineer, who plans and designs buildings, factories, houses, etc.

Surveyors Surveyors

It is the duty of the surveyors to define and match boundary measurements in buildings. It involves mathematical calculations that become the basis of designing a space.

Construction ManagersConstruction Managers

Construction managers are the planners, budget-holders, coordinator and supervisors of the construction project from start to finish.

Architecture

Architects design, supervise and plan the construction of houses, factories, office buildings and complexes. They are the ones who manage construction contracts but at the same time deal with the client requirements and also prepare scaled maps for the same.

Architecture

Syllabus

  • Architectural Design
  • Building Construction Advanced Building Technology
  • Building Science & Services
  • Climatology – Waste and Water Management
  • Electrical Installations – Lighting & Acoustic – Ventilation
  • Security Systems and Communication platforms
  • Building Management – Surveying & Levelling
  • Contracts – Quantities & Estimation
  • Building Economics (Budget)
  • Project Management

Career Opportunities

Industry DesignersIndustry Designers

Industry designers are the ones who get into product designing formats like Cars, Home Appliances, etc. They are the ones who blend their creativity with a solution to form an invention.

Landscape Architects Landscape Architects

Landscapers are the ones who design outdoor spaces like parks, campuses, open areas, etc.

Construction Managers Construction Managers

They are the people who plan, supervise and budget the building of houses, buildings, factories, etc. from start to finish.

The Take-Away

While the two courses- Architecture and Civil Engineering may look the same on the outside, they have a lot of distinctions at a workplace. Where an architect looks at designing spaces or products, it is the duty of the civil engineer to check whether all the elements are implementable or not. An architect is at liberty to go wild with imagination; the civil engineer is the one that reviews the feasibility and practicality of the situation.
