What is Civil Engineering?

Civil engineering involves the planning, designing laying out and constructing of buildings, railroads, highways, bridges, tunnels. They also work closely with architects and environmental engineers.

What does a Civil Engineer do?

Since civil engineering is very broad, civil engineering jobs are dependent on each chosen specialization taken by the engineer at University.

For civil engineering specializations there are usually three functions that are performed by the civil engineer:

  • The planning ( includes feasibility studies and designs)

  • Pre development (actually working on site making sure safety and all procedures are being followed correctly)

  • Post development
