Civil Engineering

B.TECH. (CIVIL ENGINEERING)

Construction is one of humanity’s earliest organized activities. The “civil” in civil engineering refers to the disciplines Involvement in public works, including government buildings, military bases, water treatment works, mass transit systems, airports, shipping ports, and parks Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering. Civil engineering consists of designing, planning, construction, and maintenance of the infrastructure. The works include roads, railways, airports, bridges, buildings, dams, canals, water supply, waste water 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. Civil Engineering now plays a major role in new era of high technology in important fields like remote sensing, seismic construction and under water structures.

Career prosoective

Structural engineer: This is a civil engineer, concerned with designing walls, towers, bridge spans, dams, or foundations. A knowledge of construction materials and methods is combined with analytical techniques that determine how much weight or mass a structure is carrying, what forces it must withstand (such as wind or water).A number of soft ware’s are available now a days to analyse the stability of structures.
Surveying engineer
Even before a design is completed, and as construction progresses, teams of Surveying engineers are at work. They measure the dimensions of the project. Elevations must be determined. Site engineer: This engineer works at the construction site, transforming blueprints and drawings into concrete and steel reality. the construction engineer manage the actual work. This can involve elaborate scheduling and planning so that materials and workers are brought to the site to complete their purpose in the proper order.

Transportation engineer:
Highway design is constantly being improved by making roads safer, and, in urban areas, making plans for handling increased traffic. Transportation engineers also oversee the design and construction of mass transit systems, such as subways, which require tunnelling, railway construction, and research on commuting plans. A subspecialty within transportation engineering is the pipeline engineer, who determines the movement of water, oil, or gas through pipelines.

Environmental engineer
These engineers specialize in water and wastewater projects, land remediation, aqueducts, and solid waste disposal. This field is currently one of the fastest growing of all engineering specialties.

Irrigation engineer
These engineers perform the planning, design, Construction, and maintenance of canal system. Dam design and construction, flood control, and the design and construction of reservoirs, wells, and aqueducts are all common projects.

Geotechnical engineer:
Along with geological engineers, these engineers help determine the underlying rock strata and soil conditions that affect roadways, water reservoirs, bridges, and other large structures. Earthquake planning and preparation also fall into this category.
