Civil engineering is one of the oldest professions in the world. It is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the man-made and naturally-built environment. Civil engineers are involved in planning, design, analysis and construction of buildings; transportation systems; water distribution and waste water collection systems; environment management systems, and other related systems.
The educational objectives of the civil engineering program are designed to produce skilled engineers who are ready to contribute effectively to the civil engineering profession and are ready to handle the challenges of the profession.
