What is Civil Engineering?
Civil engineering is a certified engineering discipline that compact with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as roads, dams, bridges, canals, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, and railways.
It takes place in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.
It is the application of physical and scientific principles for solving the problems of society, and its history is intricately connected to advances in the understanding of physics and mathematics throughout history. Because it is a wide-ranging profession, including several specialized sub-disciplines.
The word “civil engineer” was established by John Smeaton in the year 1750 to distinguish engineers working on civil projects with the military engineers, who worked on armaments and defenses.
In due course, diverse sub-disciplines of civil engineering have become recognized and much of military engineering has been absorbed by it, while other engineering practices became recognized as independent engineering disciplines.
