Civil Engineers

Civil engineering is one of the oldest disciplines of engineering. Civil engineers have been involved in building projects for thousands of years. They help with not only buildings, but with roads, dams, sewage systems, and many other types of structures. Civil engineers generally do some work onsite, but the majority of their time is spent in an office setting. They must consider how the building of their project will affect the people working on and using the structure, as well as how it will affect the environment both now and in the future.
