Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, plan, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is the second-oldest engineering discipline and is made up of many different areas or disciplines.
