    Hello dear, Mechanical and civil are both great branches of engineering these are the core of Engineering. Before opting you should go through few points as follows:1. Physics is the base for both the branches the further advance application of physics like the construction of buildings come under civil engineering and manufacturing processes under Mechanical.2. Even the base is same, syllabus differs completely as the application of physics bifurcates further and knowledge and ideas implemented in practical life produces different output (E.g. in civil engineering it's not all about construction, it is about complete analysing and designing ... view more

    If you are talking about which branch have a better scope mechanical engineering or civil engineering, the first thing I want to tell you that each branch has its own significance and its own value, so don't compare that civil is better or mechanical is better, both are equally good and both are the core branches of engineering, so don't be confused. As mechanical engineering is the mother of all engineering branches so it is all about the designing and production of machines.

    Both are equally good streams and have best job prospects. UEM Jaipur the one of the best college to provide different engineering streams with good placements.

    Civil Engineering has more scope than Mechanical Engineering, because there are more competitor in mechanical.

    Dear Aspirant, Civil engineering primarily targets a field whereas Mechanical engineering can be further divided into a variety of fields. This makes it a better choice for the students who are looking for higher studies in the desired direction. I have many friends who have completed B.Tech in Mechanical and Civil Engineering at LPU, Jalandhar, Being alumni of LPU, I highly recommend LPU for any engineering programme. Good Placement: Every year more than 500+ companies including national and multinational companies visit LPU for placement. A few of them are Microsoft, Amazon, Adobe, etc. In which they are placed. The maximum package availabl... view more

    Both the branches are equally good. It’s up to you and your interest. In fact every engineering branch is equally important band are interconnected to each other. However, in you really wants to know which of these branches are good then I will place mechanical engineering at the top. Mechanical engineering is called the mother of engineering. There are wide number of scopes and opportunities in the field of mechanical engineering.If you want to compare placement wise then again mechanical engineering will have the upper hand. You can check the websites of even the top IIT .The average placement in core civil engineering is pathetic. Reason... view more

    Both branches are good but if you speak of scope as such mechanical beats civil by a long shot.Mechanical is (was) called the mother of engineering for a reason. It provides a variety of options both in learning and jobs as well. And speaking of jobs and placements Civil is not in such a good shape.Open any college's placement site - you will see that civil will have one of the least placements and generally lesser than mechanical (this is true even for NITs and IITs with a exception of a few).Even packages offered are better in mechanical than civil by a small margin.To give an idea of what mechanical has to offer these are the sub branches ... view more

    Mechanical Engineering and civil engineering are subconsciously the branches of engineering that have been with the humans since the beginning. The invention of the wheel was a breakthrough in ME. And with the primitives learning how to make homes and bridges, they were the first civil engineers. I think you got the point.Now talking in technical terms, mechanical engineering and civil engineering are branches that deal with the engineering of the basic needs of life. We have and always will use machines to ease off the loads on ourselves and the machines are dealt by mechanical engineers. Also, we always shall, no matter what happens will ne... view more

    Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering both are the most popular branches of engineering which attracts a lot of students to make a good career in this field.Mechanical Engineering has more demand and better scope than civil engineering as it is one of the oldest branches of engineering. Even the new department of mechanical engineering such as automobile engineering, mechatronics engineering which give a wide range to this field. Nowadays, we are finding a way to make life easier that's why we are developing a lot of this which only mechanical engineers can do. Every day, technology surprise us in a way as engineers contribute but mech... view more
