Since time immemorial, human beings have been engaged in building all kinds of edifices. From huts made of mud to Taj Mahal, we have definitely come a long way. As civilisation matured, it is simultaneously led to the development of bigger, better, and diverse structures. From cave dwellings, human beings had moved on to construct houses, palaces, canals, dams, highways and stadiums. These civilian structures played a significant role in the development of human race ad gave various dimensions to human life as various activities evolved: social, political, economic and recreational.

Amongst all branches of engineering, the range and application of civil engineering is the broadest and the most visible.
