Career is the journey of any individual by learning, working, and communicating through other individuals. It is the most carefully selected path. One should not choose it randomly and then regret deciding on its career choice. Nowadays, Pakistan is experiencing hyperinflation, due to which the right scope of any discipline should not miss out by youth. Making the right choices will pay them in their future. To help them, we have formulated some career options in the field of engineering. It is to guide them on how much scope one discipline holds within its module. 


To get into the growing fields of engineering in Pakistan, we must know the general formula used for determining scope in Pakistan. 

Few parameters determine the career scope for any individual:

  • Employment Opportunities

  • Growing Sector

  • Highest value against work 

Let us have a look towards the three engineering fields which have the scope in Pakistan’s economy:

Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is the most popular field in Pakistan. Civil engineers work on designing, constructing, and maintaining physical structures such as dam construction, infrastructure construction, highways construction, power projects, pipelines, sewerage systems, etc.  Studying civil engineering would let students learn planning, designing, constructing, and developing natural resources. There are nine branches of civil engineering that are: 

  1. Town Planning

  2. The building, Planning, and construction

  3. Transportation engineering

  4. Environmental engineering

  5. Geotechnical engineering

  6. Water Resources Engineering

  7. Advanced Construction

  8. Structural Engineering

  9. Surveying and Levelling

Career Scope of Civil Engineering in Pakistan

Employment opportunity: Demand for Civil Engineers is high in housing schemes like Bahria Town, DHA, MIVIDA, Capital Smart city, and many more.

Growing Sector: The construction and building sector is growing day by day. More societies are launching soon. Moreover, CPEC Projects and other development projects are initiating, making it possible to grow this sector even more. 

Value for the work: Due to the growth in this sector, civil engineers are getting high salaries. (40,000 PKR to 2 Million)  

Software Engineering

The Study of designing, developing, and maintaining software is commonly known as Software Engineering. Software Engineering is the domain of computer science. It purely deals with the making of operating systems and software. This field is growing rapidly, in Pakistan.

Career Scope of Software Engineering in Pakistan

Employment opportunity: The continuous advancement in the Information technology of Pakistan has saturated the engineering industry. Software engineers are high in demand in the private sector as well as in the government sector.

Value for work: The average salary of a software engineer is 40K to 70k. The variations in salary are dependent upon the experience that person possesses.

Petroleum Engineering 

Petroleum engineering is the study of hydrocarbon and its activities. Hydrocarbons are crude oil and natural gas. Pakistan is rich in natural resources so the management of these hydrocarbons is the domain of petroleum engineers. Petroleum engineers are responsible for locating the reservoirs of hydrocarbons in the country along with the extraction of hydrocarbons.
