Civil engineers must have a strong instantaneous decision and verdict power; this will help them a lot while working in the field.

What you think regarding scope of Civil Engineering?
Scope of civil engineering is enormously gigantic and infinite. As you know civil engineering is mother of all engineering fields, its scope is inestimable.
What do you think regarding GPA, Does it matters or not?
Well I think GPA doesn’t matter :D only luck matters :P
What are your duty timings as a DDO (Roads)?
Duty timings are very erratic and variable. If there are enduring and ongoing projects you have to work 12 to 18 hours and if no project is there than you can relax more then you can imagine :D
What do you think why civil engineers don't have a love story?

One negative thing you observed in civil engineering as a profession?
Well one negative thing I observed is that their personal life is affected badly and roughly due to their hectic field jobs.
What advice would you give to a forthcoming student wanting Civil Engineer as a profession?
Well one and only advice would be to have a strong decision and assessment power and once you took a decision you should stuck with it, you should also apply latest and up-to-date knowledge to your projects because one downbeat I observed is that most of projects are being executed according to old specifications i.e of 1973!
