Civil engineering encompasses design, construction and maintenance. Civil engineers focus on both natural and man made environments, such as roads, bridges, buildings and dams. Civil engineering is actually the oldest discipline in the engineering field. Civil engineers can specialize in a wide range of sub-disciplines and apply the principles of that sub-discipline to all aspects of civil engineering. These sub-disciplines include construction engineering, coastal engineering, materials engineering, water resources engineering, municipal or urban engineering, transportation engineering, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, and surveying. Civil engineers work on many public structures that affect our everyday lives, such as the building of water systems and mass transit infrastructures.
