Civil Engineering is a profession that applies the basic principles of Science in conjunction with mathematical and computational tools to solve problems associated with developing and sustaining civilized life in our planet. It is one of the broadest engineering disciplines both in terms of the range of problems that fall within its preview and in the range of knowledge required to solve those problems. Civil Engineering works are generally one-of-a-kind projects; they are often grand in scale; and they usually require cooperation among professionals of many different disciplines. The completion of a civil engineering project involves the solution of technical problems in which information from numerous sources and myriad non-technical factors play a significant role. Some of the most common examples of civil engineering works include bridges, buildings, dams, airports, ports and harbors, highways, tunnels, towers and water distribution systems. Civil Engineers are concerned with flood controls, landslide, air and water pollution, and the design of facilities to withstand earthquakes and other natural hazards.



Graduates of Civil Engineering are expected to have lucrative careers in the following fields:
  • Design and Consultancy
  • Surveying
  • Technical assistance.
  • Environmental engineering.
  • Construction engineering.
  • Construction inspection.
  • Additional specialized inspection and testing.
  • Geotechnical Engineering.
  • Foundation recommendation.
  • Pavement design and material evaluation.
  • Structural analysis and design review.
