What is civil engineering?

Civil engineers are responsible for the basic needs and facilities (or infrastructure) of modern society. They improve systems and processes that allow humans and nature to coexist with minimal impact. Modern society could not function without them. We need civil engineers to design and build higher-capacity transportation systems. We need them to construct larger commercial and industrial complexes. We need them for water supply and pollution control. We need efficient, cost-effective and innovative repair or replacement of civil infrastructure such as roads, bridges and buildings.
