Introduction

Civil Engineering is the art of directing the great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of mankind. Civil Engineers are responsible for the build and design of most of the things in the built environment, including roads, bridges, canals, hospitals, schools and harbors. They develop our society and design an infrastructure that ensure high rigidity and enhances the life of people. They use the most sophisticated technology and the latest concepts in computer-aided design (CAD) during construction, project scheduling and cost control. The opportunity for creativity is endless because civil engineers are problem solvers, meeting the challenges of pollution, deteriorating infrastructure, traffic c o n g e s t i o n , e n e r g y n e e d s , e a r t h q u a k e s , u r b a n  re-development and community planning. Thus, civil engineering is probably the largest and broadest discipline of engineering.

For every infrastructure project there is a civil engineer to provide a custom design. Graduates can also use their engineering qualification and background as a stepping-stone into other careers. Many work in the top echelons of business within Pakistan and Internationally. Moreover, protecting the public’s health and welfare are important aspects of civil engineering practice. The socioeconomic of our society is influenced by the projects and professional activities of the engineers who practice in the technical areas: construction, environment, geometric, geological systems, materials, structures, transportation and water resources. Without effective resources; community growth, efficient transporta- tion networks, construction of an infrastructure to facilitate economic development, and communities’ potential for growth and development become markedly limited.
