In many ways civil engineering can be viewed as the practical application of a culmination of knowledge and advances drawn from disciplines as diverse as mathematics, physics, geology, materials science, hydrology, environmental science, mechanics, and others. Civil engineers draw on this wealth of knowledge to deliver everything from basic to sophisticated water treatment plants, roads, bridges, dams, waterways, and other structures. These structures in turn form the foundation for society itself.

The Role of Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is a broad term used to refer to engineering done for civil, non-military purposes. This encompasses the full spectrum of different areas within society including engineering done for governmental and municipal purposes, engineering for utilities and other basic services, engineering for commercial and industrial corporations, and engineering for the private, residential sector. This mammoth, varied role in society keeps civil engineers in high demand. It also naturally lends itself to a host of sub-disciplines and specialties.
