Civil engineering…..?<br />Oldest engineering disciplines.<br />Includes the conception, design<br /> construction and management <br /> of all type of structures. <br />Also deals with ‘Transportation <br /> system’ for goods & people.<br />
At last but not the least------<br /><ul><li>It controls the environment </li></ul> for maintenance and <br /> improves the quality of life.<br /><ul><li>Broadest field of engineering</li></ul> trade.<br />
HISTORY<br />In ancient it was used as surveying<br /> for flood prediction.<br />‘JOHN SMEATON’ was first <br /> civil engineer in 1761.<br />‘Seven wonders of the world’ are <br /> all the feats of civil engineering.<br />
<ul><li>Statistics says that- ‘ Civil engineers saved more lives then all the</li></ul> doctors’ in the history by development clean water & sanitation <br /> system.<br /><ul><li>‘ IIT Roorkee’ (1847) is the second and ‘ College of engineering </li></ul> Pune’ (1854) is the third oldest engineering college in ASIA.<br />
