Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is the discipline that consists of the design, construction, and maintenance of constructed and natural infrastructure. Civil engineers apply their knowledge of mathematics and physical sciences to develop ways to efficiently utilize natural resources and the forces of nature to improve the well-being of humanity and to protect the environment. First and foremost, Civil Engineering is a people serving profession. Civil Engineers are responsible for all civil infrastructure systems including water supply and treatment facilities, landfills, highways, bridges, rail lines, dams, and telecommunication services. The work of Civil Engineers results in improved public health and quality of life, while still recognizing the importance of natural systems. Civil Engineers have a direct and immediate impact on our society and our ability to create a sustainable civilization.
