Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil and environmental engineering, being one of the oldest and largest branches of engineering, focuses on the well-being of the civilian population by designing, constructing, operating and maintaining private and public facilities. Civil engineers are required to design buildings (including high rise building and recreational centers), factories, bridges, highways, airports, harbors, bridges, dams, tunnels, sewage treatment plants, railways, water supply systems, solid waste incinerators and other private and public facilities. The field of civil engineering is subdivided into structural, transportation, geotechnical, construction, water resources and environmental engineering.
