Civil Engineering, Architecture and Construction

Architects are creators of space around us. Architecture is not only about designing buildings - it includes city planning, designing of parks and alleys, in short, the creation of a comfortable and beautiful urban space.

Of course, this profession requires a strong education, so if you want to dedicate your life to city planning and architecture, you will need to receive at least a Bachelor degree in this (or relevant) area.
