Civil engineering

Civil engineering deals with the design, construction and maintenance of physical and naturally built environments, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings. This field is traditionally broken into several subdisciplines, including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water sources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place In all levels: in the public sector from municipal to national levels, and in the private sector from individual homeowners to international companies.
