After completion of 4th semester in B.E. Civil Engineering, the students have the opportunity to pursue specialisation in Industrial Automation.


The Public Health Engineering sector is responsible for the collection of water, purification, transmission and distribution of water. A Public Health Engineer has to perform his job by calculating design flow, design population, design area and population density. And with increasing problems related to water, air and soil pollution; environmental emergencies; industrial solid and liquid waste management; industrial and occupational safety; and toxic chemical hazards, Public Health Engineers have a greater role to play in today’s scenario as well as in future.

While Public Health Engineering is the contemporary term used for “Sanitary Engineering”. The term traditionally did not include much of waste management and environmental remediation work covered by environmental engineering.

Today, a Public Health Engineer’s role encompasses collective responsibilities right from ensuring that a water level is monitored and regulated, rivers are engineered to work with expanding populations, water and wastewater treatment systems are designed to meet growing demands or assessing and minimising water usage in domestic and industry applications.


A career in Civil Engineering with specialisation in Public Health offers promising prospects with the lure of earning an above average income. Some career expanses that students can explore after their specialisation include:

  • Building Engineering & Services
  • Water Resources Engineering
  • Renewable Water Resources Management
  • Facility Management
  • Operations Management
  • Sustainable Design & Solutions
  • Clean Energy
  • Research & Development
  • Entrepreneurship

If you want to make a difference in combating this pressing global problem, as innovators of water friendly products and services to improve quality of life, this specialisation in Civil Engineering will put you on the right track. Some of the key components you’ll learn include:

  • Applying knowledge and technical expertise in building, analysing, testing, operating and maintaining civil, green water (fresh), grey water (waste) and associated green technologies, including the study of relevant industry standards and code of practices.
  • Learn the nuances of maintenance, repair and production of plumbing, sanitation and water resource equipment and its systems.
  • Conceptualise, visualise and design of MEP services pertaining to plumbing and sanitation that include water supply & treatment, waste water disposal & recycling, and solid waste disposal. Procure, inspect and test civil and plumbing engineering materials.
  • Fault diagnosis, repairing industrial/ domestic fresh water lines (cold and hot), making joints and carrying out pipe laying and plumbing work.
