Civil engineering is arguably one of the oldest engineering disciplines. It arose from the basic human needs for shelter, safety and warmth. The size of the challenge has grown, but the basic challenges are the same – to keep people warm, safe and secure. In addition, civil engineers now need to consider the environment and the impact that all new buildings and infrastructure development has on the world around us. They face the challenges of maintaining and updating existing assets, whilst also designing and constructing new ones. From the latest sports stadia and transport hubs, to keeping houses and livelihoods safe from flood damage, to ensuring the provision of renewable safe energy sources, civil engineers have designed and built the modern world as we know it.
