What is Civil Engineering?


Civil engineers design and maintain the infrastructure that supports our civilization. The world around us is constantly developing and changing. Cities are expanding, new transportation systems are emerging and natural refuges are being restored.

Civil engineers guide this development and supervise complex interactions between nature and technology. In addition to promoting development, civil engineers also study our impact on the environment and develop methods for protecting our natural resources, such as constructing bike and walking paths for cities, finding new methods to produce and use renewable energy, and helping to manage the effects of pollution.
