Why Do You Prefer Civil Engineering?

Engineering is a wide range of science includes civil engineering, computer science, electronics and telecommunication, electrical, material science and mechanical engineering. In fact, the civil engineering is least preferred among the engineering students as most of those want to work in a comfortable atmosphere without any physical works.


You have passed so many buildings, bridges, dams, ports all around the world without seeking the dedication or commitment behind every successful project. What is civil engineering? I just want to explain the civil engineering concept first before going further deep in the topic. Every gentleman thinks that civil engineering just builds a building according to the design. It is not the only case actually. Civil engineering science is old as old and young as young.

The Pyramids of Egypt, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Colossus of Rhodes, Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, and Pharos (Lighthouse) of Alexandria are the reflects of civil engineering incredible creations over the past years. Even modern civil engineers are wondering about these structures and their durability.

Technical, economic, social and environmental are the main concerns for a civil engineering to be analyzed thoroughly before commencing a project. In an overall manner, civil engineer preserves the environment with an economic design. A civil engineer can tackle any problems in a different perspective.


The application of civil engineering is spread in various industry and nowadays trending in aerospace applications too where the weight sensitive applications are preferred. Even I am commonly saying as a Civil engineer, it actually diverse as varieties of sub-disciplines as geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, structural engineering, hydraulic engineering, and transportation engineering.

English Channel Tunnel, CN Tower – Toronto, Empire State Building -New York, Golden Gate Bridge – San Francisco, Itaipu Dam – Brazil, Netherlands North Sea Protection Works, Burj Khalifa (tallest structure in the world) and Panama Canal are some wonders of the modern world which inspiring us into the civil engineering field.


These are the best impression to be a civil engineer. Moreover, civil engineering is a discipline incorporates the design stage, construction stage, and maintenance stage of roads, buildings, bridges and other hydraulic structures. As a civil engineer, we are improving the people’s lives while upgrading the services and facilities to a well-being society.

In whole, a civil engineer is a most wanted person for a well-developed country with health and comfort that is the fact to choose the civil engineering passion.
