About the Course

Civil engineering is the conventional branch of study in the engineering field. The course includes the study of planning, designing and implementation of structural activities. The working area of this field includes the jobs that start from the planning, analyzing, designing, supervision and construction of various public works such as bridges, dams, water sewages, etc.

A civil engineer’s job is to involve in the constructional activities of different works. They make plans, designs of various infrastructures and supervise its constructional works. They need excellent skills in both supervision and administration. The planning is the beginning of their work. This stage involves site analysis, feasibility studies and finding solutions to the various complications involved and the designing of the structures.
