“We shape our buildings, therefore they shape us.” A quote from Winston Churchill that indicates how important the work of civil engineers is. Each type of civil engineer contributes to society in a different way, but all of them have the same goal. Civil engineers aim to help people by providing the buildings and roads that they use on a daily basis. If you’re interested in being a civil engineer, put on your hard hat and let’s take a site tour.
In this course, young civil engineers will be mesmerized by the details they will encounter. Whether it’s buildings, bridges, tunnels, dams, highways, airports, water, or sewer systems, civil engineering is at the center of all the infrastructure we see and don’t see. Learn what materials civil engineers use and how they plan for uncertain events. Let’s learn all about civil engineering!
