Together Putting India on the Path of Success

Anamika Sahu, Managing EditorThe second oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, civil engineering is a growing industry in India due to the surging demand for environment-friendly buildings and the increasing government initiatives. On the other hand, the higher potential opportunities for infrastructure planners, operators, and owners provide numerous prospects for further infrastructure development. No wonder that the country will become the largest employer by 2022 with 72 million employees.
