Introduction to Civil Engineering

Civil engineering deals with design and construction of all kinds of facilities that we use in our everyday life. Roadways, airports, buildings, large and small, water treatment systems, railways and bridges are examples of facilities designed and built by civil engineers. Like other engineering disciplines, the civil engineering education requires a strong preparation in math and science. This course is intended to familiarize you with what background is needed to start your education in civil engineering, what civil engineers do, how many branches are in civil engineering, and what kind of professions civil engineers will be involved with upon graduation from college.
