Hey Akshay, how are you doing?

So first of all bravo on the excellent IELTS and GRE score. You are more than good to go as this score will boost your application to the next level. 

Coming towards your question, for your master choices, it's definitely the United States. Yes, I know it will cost more and yes, other countries have good options too. But the USA is the hub of civil/construction management. Most partnered organizations in the field operate their headquarters in the USA. Not to mention, the current economic developments, that are encouraging the development of social science more. I can name a few institutes that will be more eventful to you. These are top-quality institutes and offer both civil engineering and construction programs.

  1. University of California - Berkeley
  2. University of Illinois
  3. Georgia Institute of Technology
  4. University of Texas - Austin
  5. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Now you might lean towards MIT. No denying it's the best tech institute globally. However, I would personally recommend Berkeley as the best choice. Berkeley ranks #2 for engineering schools and remains in top spots for civil/construction engineering. And it's not just about rankings, it's what they represent. The graduation rate, employment percentage, earning capabilities etc.
