What do civil engineers do? Civil engineers help improve the lives of people. They’re responsible for designing the essential infrastructure that people rely on daily in the built environment. From foundations to tunnels, sewers and water mains, roads and bridges, railroads and airports, a civil engineer’s involvement in a project begin from the very first day when a need arises, in either repairing an existing structure or building a new one. The role of a civil engineer in a construction project includes everything from the design, planning, scheduling, construction, monitoring, and inspection throughout the course of the project. Essentially a civil engineer has to overcome obstacles every day using engineering knowledge and field experience to solve problems and find creative solutions to difficult challenges.

Civil Engineering – Overview

Civil engineering is everywhere. It’s in the roads you drive, the water you drink and everywhere you work, live or play, civil engineering is all around you. Civil engineering is one of the oldest and broadest engineering professions. It focuses on the infrastructure necessary to support a civilized society. This branch of engineering has a wide spectrum of specializations such as structural, construction, geotechnical, environmental, transportation, water resources, and materials engineering.
