Job Scope for Diploma in Civil Engineering

After completing the diploma course, students can join construction firms for various posts. As they form the bulk of the engineering workforce, the demand for diploma holders is relatively high. Being experts in practical application and supervision, diploma holders join as site supervisors, material inspectors, draftsmen, surveyors, etc.

The leading private recruiters are- Unitech, Jaypee group, ACC, Tata Projects, L&T, Unicon Development Construction, Rama Group, PCC, Shapoorji and Pallonji, etc. Students can easily get a decent package in private firms. Further, after completing their diploma, students can also apply for junior engineering posts in government institutions and PSUs.

AIME Certification

Another good option for Diploma holders is to pursue the AIME Certification Course. Institution of Engineers(India) provides the A.M.I.E (Associate Member of the Institutions of Engineers) certification, which is a professional certification equivalent to a B. Tech/B.E. Degree. It’s one of the best options for working diploma students who want a B. Tech equivalent certificate to further their careers in civil engineering. The AIME exam is divided into two sections, and it takes a minimum of 2 years to complete the programme. After obtaining the certificate diploma, students will be eligible for applying for posts where a graduation degree in engineering is required.

BTech or B.E. after diploma

After completing their diploma, students can also join B. Tech or BE courses as a lateral entry. After obtaining a graduate degree, students can look for higher posts and pursue higher studies in civil engineering or other domains like management, etc. Diploma students usually pursue B. Tech/BE after gaining a lot of hands-on experience working in the industry, which helps them take up higher job roles.

Government Jobs

Every year Government institutions and PSUs release vacancies exclusively for diploma holders. Diploma holders can apply for the junior engineer, maintainer, and technician posts. They can also apply for engineering exams like SSC JE, State JE exams, etc. The age limit for the exams is up to 32 years, with age relaxation for eligible students. Further, civil engineering vacancies are maximum in all JE exams, which provides an added advantage for civil engineering diploma holders. Major recruiters are- CPWD, State CPWD, DRDO, NTPC, NHPC, BHEL, NHAI, SAIL, PGCIL, Railways, etc.

Great learning at a low cost

The diploma course has a much lower fee as compared to B. Tech. For students for whom affordability is a concern, a Diploma is one of the best choices for a great learning and practical experience at a lower cost. Further, the diploma course’s duration is shorter compared to B. Tech, so it will help students get into the industry early and get a good hand on experience.


Diploma courses are designed to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills to become successful entrepreneurs. After gaining experience by working for a few years in the construction industry, students can start their own construction firm and work as contractors. The civil engineering sector is booming, so students can look for various opportunities and even go for new and innovative construction technologies like- 3D printed houses, drone-based inspection, modular design, etc.
