It is important for present generation in the field of Civil Engineering is to focus on their skills development according to market demand, this can only be done with proper structure of Civil Engineering Society which will be in coordination with graduates, consultants, contractors and Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) at the same time. It will also create large jobs opportunities for Young Engineers.
