What is Civil Engineering

 Civil engineering is a professional

 engineering discipline related to construction, design and maintenance of physical and of course the built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings. Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and is defined to distinguish from non-military engineering military engineering.
It is traditionally divided into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, Geotechnical, structural engineering, transportation engineering, urban or city engineer, water resources engineering, coastal engineering, survey and civil engineering.
Civil engineering takes place at all levels: in the public sector, local government, through national governments and the private sector to international corporations to individual home owners.

Civil Engineers: Every Student Must Know About
These engineers are the legends of Civil Engineering, and every student weather he is doing tradional or online degree must follow them and learn from their contribution and masterpieces. They are the legends who are being still followed by modern civil engineers and architects.

Gustave Eiffel

The person who has design "Eiffel Tower". He has build many railway stations, bridges, gasworks and churches over his lifetime and his legacy is felt in dozens of countries around the world. Gustave Eiffel's complete repertoire of engineering accomplishments is much larger and varied.

Henry Darcy

Darcy may not be a household name, but he is a titan in the world of "Hydraulics Engineering". In 1856, Darcy discovered what came to be known as Darcy's Law, an equation that now has numerous applications in the study of water permeability. The unit of fluid permeability-the darcy-was even named after him.

Sir Marc Isamhard Brunel

Brunel, like so many civil engineers, worked on a wide range of projects. He is best known for his work that resulted in his patenting of the tunneling shield in 1818. This device allowed tunnels to be built through water bearing soil (a.k.a. underwater), a feat that had not been previously achieved.

Joseph Struass

Strauss was a bridge designer and builder who invented various types of draw and vertical-lift bridges. His crowning achievement, however, is the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. When it was completed in 1937, the Golden Gate was the longest bridge in the world. It remained so for nearly 30 years until the construction of the Verrazano Narrows in New York.

Thomas Brassey

One of the most famous railway engineers of the 19 th century, Brassey designed and oversaw the construction of tens of thousands of miles of railroad, including the 1,100-mile Grand Trunk Railway in Canada. "Brassey's railroads" can be found all over the world, from Paris to South America.
