Construction Engineering and Management Features

The ultimate product of every civil engineer's work is a constructed facility. The construction industry accounts for 15 out of every 100 jobs in the country and consumes more basic and finished materials than any other industry. Civil engineers are responsible not only for the design of complex engineering systems but also for the direction and management of their construction.

The construction of a highway, a power plant, a concrete dam, or an office building requires an in-depth understanding of economic principles, design fundamentals, material properties and management techniques. Civil engineers play a vital role in constructing facilities that directly affect our national prosperity and the overall quality of life.
