Majors : What is Civil Engineering?

Civil Engineering BSc

Civil Engineering (CE), arguably one of the oldest engineering branches in history, is the main field that works on improving the quality of everyday life for humans, communities, and societies around the world. Generally speaking, CE is an effective and practical way of contributing to society through technical, scientific, and creative skills. Civil engineers often find work in consulting firms, private industries, and governmental agencies. Eventually, students can determine a specific area of CE —structural, environmental, materials or coastal— they want to follow as a career path.

The unique balance of disciplines within a CE curriculum usually depends on the specialisation selections of the student. A CE student can expect an exceptionally diverse curriculum, including engineering tracks such as general engineering, water resources engineering, and transportation engineering. These assorted specialisations combine to create subtly unique education according to the choices of each student.
