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.
