IIT Bombay Professor DN Singh listed the advantages of studying civil engineering over other branches at an IIT. (Representative image)During a recent interactive session organised by IIT Bombay this month, Professor DN Singh listed the advantages of studying civil engineering over other branches at an IIT. Here’s what the veteran IIT Bombay professor said:

Why Civil Engineering 

In 1982, I had asked my counsellor why I should choose civil engineering at IIT Kanpur over other branches.

I can tell you from my experience that I am doing pretty well compared to my batchmates. I am satisfied. I can enjoy my life and motivate others. I am part of most (academic) activities in the state and country. My research activities have been recognised, and I am the ‘Chair Professor for Innovation’ at IIT Bombay.

Confusion is a good state of mind, so remain confused throughout your life. That’s the best thing humans can do. For those who don’t find civil engineering appealing, I would suggest that you follow the website of Institution of Civil Engineers or ICE headquartered in London. I am a fellow of this organisation. You should also listen to the ICE president’s address recorded over the years.
