Civil Engineering

What is Civil Engineering?

Civil Engineers are responsible for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of infrastructure. They work in a range of different industries involving buildings, roads, tunnels, airfields, railways, mines and other types of infrastructure.

Civil Engineering is very broad and opens up the opportunity for specialisation.
