Overview & Course Objective:

               • Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment,

                    including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings
               • Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering.

                   It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines.
               • Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to federal levels, and in the private sector from individual homeowners

                   through to international companies.
               • This is an introductory course to the rapidly expanding field of Civil Engineering. All aspects of Civil Engineering will be discussed.
