Civil Engineering is a discipline that teaches how to build, maintain and control social infrastructure (water and sewage systems, roads, ports, etc.) and restore a devastated natural environment, all for the purpose of a happier and healthier society. In this program, students learn about the latest technologies, including both hardware and software, in various fields of building design and construction, urban planning, and soil and water environment preservation.
