Department of Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings.
Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. It is traditionally divided into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying, and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to federal levels, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.

One of the oldest branches of engineering civil is responsible for road to dams, airport to bridges. Civil engineering design and maintains public works and public facilities. Any structure regardless of whether it is large or small is designed planned and managed by civil engineers. Civil engineers also play an important role in preserving the environment by helping clean up the existing pollution and looking for new ways to reduce future pollution. The future of civil is bright and job opportunities are expected to rise. This is because with the rise in population, civil engineers will be required to build and maintain new structures, as well as repair existing ones.
