Civil Engineering is the art of directing the great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of man. Our society would not work without civil engineering. Infrastructure supports our daily life â€“ roads and harbours, railways and airports, hospitals, sports stadiums and schools, access to drinking water and shelter from the weather. Today, civilization relies more than ever on teams of inventive people to design, build and maintain the sophisticated environment that surrounds us. Civil engineering as a career is a challenge, self-expression, achievement and personal reward through their work. The civil engineering department is one of its kinds in the region, which provides quality education.
