    Dear Vinoth,
    A site engineer gets quicker increment and posting than a design engineer and an estimator. This is because design works and estimating are components of her duties. A  site engineer must however be dynamic and highly mobile. Due to your commutation challenges, you may not be able to perform your duties effectively in this respect.  
    The divisions in civil engineering discpline include:
      * structural engineering
      * foundation and geotechnics engineering
      * transportation engineering
      * environmental and public health engineering
      * engineering education, etc.

    Your career progression in engineering profession is hinged on education, practice and experience. Build your capacity in your special area of interest that will be beneficial to your community.

    Wishing you all the best.
