Should I learn Revit, Autocad or Civil 3D if I want to go in the design field after graduating civil engineering?

For people entering the Civil world, AutoCAD Civil 3D is a industry common software, AUTOCAD can be used slightly for civil, it is based on the same software. Revit is 100% not a civil tool. Revit can be useful when sharing with Revit counterpart disciplines, such as Architecture, they would want your 3D topo and other components that go to that plan to help support their documentation and planning. Revit will get used very little if not at all in a Civil discipline unless you work in a multi-discipline company that for some reason asks you to use it.
