  2. 2. Civil Engineering is Everywhere Civil Engineering is a composite of many specific disciplines. Structural Waste Treatment Transportation Geotechnical Water Management 61% are cluelessWhy? Construction about engineering Management
  3. 3. Building Big!!!!Buildings & Structures: CitiesInfrastructure: TransportationCulture: Art: ArchitectureThe Future: Without Limit!
  4. 4. What is Civil Engineering????Civil engineering is acomposite of many specificdisciplines. Structural & solid mechanics. Waste treatment & environmental. Transportation. Geotechnical & soil mechanics. Hydraulics & water management. Construction management.
  5. 5. Structural & SolidMechanicsStructural engineersdesign steel, concrete,or timber framedstructures such as: Tall buildings & towers, Bridges, Dams, Retaining walls, & foundations, &. Stadiums.
  6. 6. Waste Treatment & Environmental.Wastewater treatmentengineers are civil orenvironmental engineerstrained to design or analyzewater treatment plants.Water treatment plants arecategorized as follows: Sanitary waste treatment facilities, Industrial waste treatment facilities, Potable (drinking) water treatment facility. Largest treatment basins in the USA
  7. 7. TransportationTransportationEngineers design andanalyze Highways, Railways, Airports, Urban and Suburban Road Networks, Parking Lots, and Traffic Control Signal Systems.
  8. 8. Geotechnical & Soil MechanicsGeotechnical Engineersanalyze thesubterranean rock andsoil to determine itssuitability to supportextreme loads.Proper geotechnicalengineering is essentialfor a safe and securestructure.
  9. 9. Hydraulics & Water ManagementWater managementinvolves the use ofhydrologic and hydraulicprinciples to design: Drainage systems, Detention/retention ponds, Navigational waterways, and Flood control levees, dams, and lakes.
  10. 10. ConstructionManagementConstruction managers: Review contracts, Order materials, Hire and schedule sub- contractors.The job of a constructionmanager is to: Provide quality control and insure project is completed on time and. Within budget.
