Which has better job prospects for the future, Civil/Environmental or Mining Engineering?
I was just wondering which of those (considering environmental engineering as a branch under Civil) has a wider scope of companies to work for and job prospects for the next 20 years? Which pays more? Thanks in advance

Personally, I would opt for civil engineering, because it is a very broad field. In civil engineering, you could specialize in structural, environmental, roads, water and waste water. You can also provide site work design for mining operations. Mining engineering is a fairly narrow field but if you think you would enjoy working on mining operations, this would be your field. You will perform best and be most successful in the field that is most interesting to you.
