If your dream is to start a construction company, then the best option for your master's degree would be construction and infrastructure management. Otherwise, all subjects are good and they have equal value.

Hi, For masters degree, go for the subject with your interest. So that you can enjoy the process of learning and try something new startups in that field. Most of the graduates select the course depending upon the future scope but genuinely scope is a temporary and interest push you to do better in that subject. for starting your own venture in construction I suggest you go with project management, construction management and infrastructure management. Town planning and management are also one of the best option to explore your management skills. Suggesting you take a look at the syllabus before you choose a masters course and cross-check with your interest. Hope this helps you to choose the best course for your master's degree. Best of luck.

Each branch has its own importance brother. You need to get the best out of the course you get into. Having said that, Structural Engineering and Transportation engineering have more job availability and good scope for research. There are good opportunities even in software side (Related to structures) like Revit Structure and Architecture STAAD Pro SAP2000 ETABS Geo-Technical Engineering helps you start your own consultancy firm. There are good opportunities even in software side (Related to GeoTechnical) like GEO STUDIO - SLOPE/W is used for Slope Stability Analysis , EDUSHAKE for is normally used for earthquake and Geo Technical analysis, PLAXIX 2D, Plaxis 3D is a finite element package intended for the two dimensional and 3-dimensional analysis of deformation and stability in geotechnical engineering. MATLAB uses mathematical simulation for analyzing structural and foundation problems using a series of arrays.
