Civil Engineering deals with one of the most visible signs of change and progress around us: the construction of new buildings and structures. New roads, rail-links, bridges and airports are always needed. New buildings are required for the public and private sectors and older buildings are redeveloped. Massive utilities for water supply, waste treatment and power generation require the skills of Civil Engineers. Civil Engineers are required to plan, design, construct and maintain these facilities.

Civil Engineers identify and analyse problems, and develop and implement solutions. In addition to technical skills, Civil Engineers have competences in related fields of project management and health and safety. Civil Engineers work as individuals and in teams. The problem solving, solution implementation and management skills of Civil Engineers are applicable to a broad range of work environments and are valued by a wide range of employers.
