About Civil Department

Civil engineers create, improve and protect the environment in which we live. They plan, design, and oversee construction and maintenance of building structures and infrastructure, such as roads, railways, airports, bridges, harbors, dams, irrigation projects, power plants, and water & sewerage systems. They also design and build tall buildings and large structures that can withstand all weather conditions. Generally, civil engineers fall into two types. consulting engineers and contracting engineers. Consultants are responsible for the design work of projects and work predominantly in an office. Contractors then take the designs and implement them during construction. .
