What is Civil Engineering?
Civil engineers form the backbone of modern society.
They design and construct most of the built world: buildings, bridges, roads, dams, pipelines, towers, transport systems, gas and water supplies, sewerage systems, harbours, airports, and railways.
Working from architects’ drawings, civil engineers consider everything from the suitability of construction materials to the impact of the structure on its surroundings.
Their role is to produce safe, economical and environmentally sound structures.
Specialisations include construction engineers, municipal engineers, structural engineers, transport engineers, or water supply distribution engineers.
