The condition of civil branch is becoming worse daya by day. Even the same thing is going on top colleges for civil too. The students of civil are moving towards service based IT companies. 

So don't go for choice of college, go for CSE and give your efforts to land in product based IT companies from off campus recruitment. 

Hope it helps

It's not about the place but the stream that you need to consider as the two branches are very distinct from one another and provide diverse career opportunities. There are just a small number of government-related positions available in the market for civil engineers. So you should choose civil engineering if you want to pursue government sector jobs, which are limited.

However, compared to Civil Engineering, Electrical & Electronics Engineering (EEE) has a greater number of work opportunities, therefore if you wish, you should pursue this field.

Yes ofcourse you just need to maintain a cgpa and an year end sgpa above the cutoff to be able to change your branch. youll have to score good enough to make yourself come into the list of the top 3-4 students of your respective branch to be eligible to change your current branch
Despite of all these points, sometimes it gets difficult to change the branch as the number of the students scoring more than 9.0 CPI are more and sometimes it is also expected that the branch in which you are seeking to move in, have no seats remaining.
It's difficult but it's still possible
Hope this helps
Good luck
