Civil engineers handle all construction work. They are involved in planning, research, survey and construction of all kinds of buildings as well as roads, airports, dams, traffic and trasnportation systems, irrigation and power plants, water supply and sewage disposal plants, oil rigs etc. Basically they are responsible for planning and designing a project and having it constructed to the required scale. They are also responsible for developing and maintaining the nation's vital transportation and other ifrastructure networks, improve public services, optimize the use of water and energy resources, upgrade housing and trasnportation systems and protect natural environment. Structural engineering , highway engineering , water management engineering and environmental engineering are some of the areas civil engineers specialize in. The civil engineer has to plan, research, survey and design the project and then get it constructed to the required scale.
