Civil engineering is a reputable and well known sector of engineering which is relating to the sector of creating pattern and structure for the development of building ,together with repairing and maintenance of the bodily as well as organically constructed atmosphere. The construction, mending, maintenance and development work comes under this part as constructing streets, highways, canals, making bridges, railways, airports, harbours, dams and houses, buildings etc. All these types of public work are executed by the civil engineer. Civil engineers generate , improve and preserve the environment in which we survive. Generally civil engineers get chance to work with any private organization or municipalities , they get these kind of public works on the basis of contracts. The scope of civil engineering is quite vast as it includes some valuable sub categories as Geo technical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, water resource engineering , environmental engineering, earth quake engineering , urban planning etc. In the past few years the scope of civil engineering has grown to include several new areas of study i.e project management , life cycle design, real time monitoring, rehabilitation, smart systems, space structures, remote sensing and geographical information system, design using software, bus rapid transit system, metro rail , mega city development, malls etc. There is unlimited scope to this discipline at national as well as international level as everyday there is growing demand for housing, amenities and infrastructure.
