AIM OF THE COURSE:
Civil Engineering started from the dawn of civilization. Civil Engineering is synonymous to creation and construction. The domain of Civil Engineering is very wide and it has embraced almost all fields of human civilization and development. Graduates should solve civil engineering problems within a greater societal context by doing the following:
Every day, from the water faucet to the highway, you see the work of civil and environmental engineers in action. Civil engineering is one of the broadest of the engineering disciplines, extending across many technical specialties. Civil engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential to modern life. These facilities vary widely in nature, size, and scope and include space satellites and launching facilities, offshore structures, bridges, buildings, tunnels, highways, transit systems, dams, airports, harbors, water supply and wastewater treatment plants. Civil engineers work in diversified areas such as structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, water resources and environmental engineering, transportation engineering, ocean and coastal engineering, and construction engineering.
