Civil Engineers understand the way in which natural phenomena behave, meeting both environmental and technical challenges including how water flows, how waves break, how rivers may be controlled, how rainfall and wind effects can be measured and how buildings of all kinds are able to resist loads. You can study in the area of structural engineering, structural mechanics, hydraulic engineering, geotechnical engineering, geomechanics, transportation engineering, planning and design, maintenace engineering.
