Introduction of Civil engineering

Civil engineering is a professional engineering speciality that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. Civil engineering is the second-oldest engineering discipline after military engineering and it is characterised to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering traditionally it is divided into several sub-disciplines including architectural engineering,environmental engineering, geotechnicalengineering,control engineering, structural engineering, earthquake engineering,transportation engineering,forensic engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, wastewater engineering, offshore engineering, facade engineering, coastal engineering, construction surveying, and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place in the public sector and private sector.

Engineers of this field usually acquire an academic degree in civil engineering. Upon the completion of the degree, the new engineer is required to meet a few requirements such as work experience in order to be certified. The duration of this degree is usually 4 years.

Civil engineering has many sub-disciplines, to name these:

ØMaterial science & engineering

ØCoastal engineering

ØConstruction engineering

ØEarthquake engineering

ØEnvironment engineering

ØGeotechnical engineering

ØWater source engineering

ØStructural engineering


ØTransportation engineering

ØForensic engineering

ØMunicipal or urban engineering

ØControl engineering
