Civil

Civil Engineering is the art and mechanism of directing the power of nature for use and convenience of man. It is an art to create the developed world around us. Civil Engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential to modern lives, offshore structures, bridges, buildings, tunnels, highways, transit systems, dams, airports, harbours, water supply system and wastewater treatment plants. A civil engineer is responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of the project. A civil engineer requires not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills. It is one of the oldest engineering subjects and the largest field of engineering. In the year 1828, civil engineering declared as the professional programme in London. A candidate who specializes in this field is known as a civil engineer.
