Meaning of Civil Engineering

What is Civil Engineering:

Civil engineering is a branch of engineering that is responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of large infrastructures for public or civil use, such as roads, bridges, railways, airports, ports, dams, dikes, canals, etc. .

Civil engineering intervenes in physical reality to try to find an adequate solution to human needs. To do this, it uses other scientific disciplines such as physics, chemistry, mathematics, geology, calculus, mechanics or hydraulics, etc.

As such, civil engineering is, after military engineering, the oldest branch of engineering. In fact, its name is given by the need to differentiate one from the other: for military or defense uses and for civil or peaceful uses.

Civil engineering is applied where the existence of a problem is recognized and it is necessary to find a solution: expand a road, have more efficient means of transport, communicate populations separated by geography, etc. For example: the construction of the Panama Canal to connect the Pacific and the Atlantic is a civil engineering work.

See also Panama Canal.

In this sense, civil engineering works together with local authorities and coordinates efforts with private companies and professionals and experts in other disciplines to offer effective solutions for specific problems.

In this sense, it is a very important profession because thanks to it, all kinds of infrastructures are developed to really improve people's lives.

Those who study civil engineering are graduated from civil engineers, and have placement in both the public sector (government entities), and in the private sector (as employees or consultants).
