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 roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. A civil engineer is a person who practices civil engineering; the application of planning, designing, constructing, maintaining, and operating infrastructures while protecting the public and environmental health, as well as improving existing infrastructures that have been neglected.
Civil Engineering students work in close collaboration with local industry and are therefore constantly in tune with the demands of industry. Civil Engineers leave their legacy by designing infrastructures and structures that save and protect us.
Civil Engineering involves the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of systems and infrastructure necessary to maintain and improve the smooth running of society. Examples of such infrastructure are the transportation system, water and waste management systems, building and construction.
Professional civil engineers are the people who devise and build the essential facilities on which we all depend and which form our basic infrastructure on land and in water. Every reservoir, dam, water treatment works, road, bridge, tunnel and large buildings are designed and built by civil engineers, who also develop the required technology and manage the construction process from its initial concept through to the final delivery.The management of waste is also handled by civil engineers and if it is your desire to be a part of the people who build civilization, then our department is the place for you.
