Engineering is defined by Webster Dictionary as “the art or science of making practical application of the knowledge of pure sciences, as physics or chemistry, as in the construction of engines, bridges, buildings, mines, ships and chemical plants”. I like to simplify by saying “engineers solve problems using math and science”.
Civil engineers create, improve and protect the environment as well as plan, design and oversee construction and maintenance of infrastructure, such as roads, railways, airports, bridges, dams, power plants, and water and sewerage systems.
Civil engineers generally 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.
