So many softwares are now available but it’s depends upon which filed you choose.

For structural analysis


softwares a civil engineer wants to know

FOR project planning

  • Primavera
  • Ms project

For 3d modeling of structure/Architecture

  • 3ds max : in this you can design the model of whole city.
  • Maya

For geotechnical work

  • Geo studio: used for analysing slope stability, ground water seepage, stress deformations
  • Geo5 : used for Excavation design, Shallow foundation and deep foundation design, stability analysis, settlement analysis
  • FLAC3D: advanced geotechnical analysis of soil, rock, and structural support in three dimensions.

You don’t need to learn every software, as i told you its depends upon the filed you choose. So for now learn autocad and Excel only rest depends upon your filed interest.These are the softwares a civil engineer should know.
