Civil Engineering is concerned with creative use of engineering principles and science to shape and improve our lives and our environment.
The work of the Civil Engineer centres on sustainable design for the built and natural environment. Civil Engineers design, build, maintain and manage roads, railways, dams, buildings, airports, hospitals, schools, harbours and sports stadia. They design water supply and water treatment systems and river management, flood and coastal protection schemes.
