Civil Engineering  
 
 

Civil engineering is an engineering which deals with the construction of buildings, designing structures and maintenance of the built environment. Civil Engineers are concerned with all types of structures including dams, bridges, pipelines, roads, towers and buildings. They are responsible for the design and construction of all our transport systems. Civil Engineers plan, design and test the structures of private and public buildings and facilities. Civil engineers may specialize as chief civil engineers, construction engineers, municipal engineers, structural engineers, transport engineers.

Basically civil engineers build physical infrastructure and structures. A civil engineer who specializes in the design of buildings is called a structural engineer. A civil engineer who specializes in roads, drainage and earthworks is called a civil engineer. Due to increase in the scope of civil engineering with the passage of time, it has now divided into many branches of study. Some of the significant ones include structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, hydraulic engineering and environmental engineering.
