Civil Engineering: Nature of the Work

Civil engineers research, develop, design, build and maintain all basic infrastructures such as buildings, roads, rail roads, bridges, dams, tunnels, storm sewers, sanitary sewers, water treatment facilities and so on. Civil Engineers participate in the geotechnical engineering where they design foundations and special issues arising due to natural hazards such as earth quakes, tsunami and flooding. Several civil engineers work with transportation engineering divisions and participate in traffic network design, high way design and traffic planning. Civil engineers with Structural specialization work with design of structural components which involves steel and concrete design. Civil Engineers with water resources and environmental engineering specialization participate in watershed eco system maintenance, water distribution network design, storm sewer design, flood plain development and water quality modeling. Civil Engineers with construction management works as team leads in the project site and manage the resources in an optimal way. Civil Engineers faces lots of design challenges and has tremendous research scopes in all the above mentioned specializations.

Computers assist civil engineers by accurately and efficiently performing computations, and by permitting the modeling and simulation of new designs as well as facilitating changes to existing designs. Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is used for design data processing.
