Civil engineering is considered as the first discipline of the various branches of engineering after military engineering, and includes the designing, planning, construction, and maintenance of the infrastructure. The works include roads, bridges, buildings, dams, canals, water supply and numerous other facilities that affect the life of human beings. Civil engineering is intimately associated with the private and public sectors, including the individual homeowners and international enterprises. It is one of the oldest engineering professions, and ancient engineering achievements due to civil engineering include the pyramids of Egypt and road systems developed by the Romans.
It has established liaison with industry to take various problems referred to by Govt., Semi-Govt.& Private Organizations. It also
provides technical guidelines to the people of the country, particularly in the northern region and organizes seminars, workshops,
and conferences for the benefits of students and entrepreneurs. The Dept. has Civil Engineering Society that organizes expert
lectures, group discussions, competitions, sports and other activities for the all-round development of the Civil Engineering
Civil Engineering is the basic and most sought after professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction
and maintenance of the physical and naturally available environment. It includes design, construction and maintenance of essential
infrastructural facilities such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings.
Civil Engineering practices takes place at all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to federal levels, and in the
private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.
Typical career path scenarios for Civil Engineering professionals are :
Civil Engineers do find work at the construction site in a managerial position or in design, research as well as in teaching
in government services or private concerns.
They do also work as independent consultants.
In some fields and firms, entry-level engineers are put to work primarily monitoring construction in the field, serving as the
"eyes and ears" of more senior design engineers; while in other areas, entry-level engineers end up performing the more important
tasks of analysis or design and interpretation.
A Civil Engineer is trained to manage men, materials, equivalent of all kinds and the financial aspects related to his work.
