Civil Engineers design, plan and improve the built environment and infrastructure systems, including buildings, power generation facilities, water supply networks, pollution control works, flood protection structures, dams and canals, as well as vital network systems for commerce such as roadways, airports, bridges, railroads and ports. Civil engineering encompasses several subdisciplines, including hydraulics and hydrology, structural, geotechnical, construction, environmental, civil engineering materials and transportation engineering.
Environmental Engineers help society meet the challenges of global resource limitations and human environmental impacts. They work in engineering consulting, government agencies, humanitarian organizations and much more. Environmental engineering is predicted to have one of the highest growth rates among all engineering disciplines in a few years.
