Civil Engineering shapes modern life as we know it. It is the design, construction and maintenance of our environment – from the roads you drive to work on, through to the office buildings in which you work.
The construction of road networks, the building of bridges, canals and sewers, the creation of rail networks and the design and construction of large buildings are all down to civil engineers. It encompasses a wide range of disciplines such as structures, geology, hydrology, hydraulics, materials science, mechanics and environmental science.
Civil engineers look at inventive ways to create, improve and protect our surrounding environment. These can include:
- Highway design and maintenance, including structures and bridges
- Multi-storey car parks
- Urban safety and traffic calming
- Coast protection and marinas
- Sewerage design
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) represents civil engineers around the world, acting as a qualifying body and central hub for both students and qualified practitioners.
