  1. 1. Civil Engineering<br />By<br />Sai Hemchandra<br />Adrian Curbelo<br />Dwain Minto<br />Bryan Marshall<br />Dalton Steele<br />
  2. 2. Introduction<br />Major role in the development and management of society's physical infrastructure<br />Plan<br />Design<br />Construction <br />Maintenance<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. Introduction<br />Expertise in analysis, design, computer applications, and management<br />Invent safer and more economical ways of construction, <br />Make decisions and consider a broad range of factors such as required resources, aesthetic values, and environmental, economic, legal, sociological, and technological limitations.<br />
  5. 5. Problem Statement<br />The objective of this project is to gain an understanding of all the aspects relating to civil engineering, including the history of the major, the subdivisions, future trends, possible functions, important facts, employment, technical organization, and different cutting edge technologies. <br />
  6. 6. Project Objectives<br />To analyze the new employment trends in civil engineering.<br />To explore the possible functions and useful depth about cutting edge technology.<br />Uses of research<br /><ul><li>To provide beneficial information and facts relating to civil engineering.
  7. 7. To give the public and beginning engineers a betting understanding of the field.</li></li></ul><li>History<br />Civil engineering involves the design, construction, and maintenance of works such as roads, bridges, and buildings<br />In ancient history, most of the construction was carried out by artisans, and technical expertise was limited. <br />It might be appropriate to assume that the science of civil engineering truly commenced between 4000 and 2000 BC in Egypt when transportation gained such importance that it led to the development of the wheel. <br />
  8. 8. Sub-Disciplines<br />Coastal engineering <br />Construction engineering <br />Earthquake engineering <br />Environmental engineering <br />Geotechnical engineering <br />Water resources engineering <br />Material engineering <br />Structural engineering <br />Surveying <br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. Career Life<br />Civil engineers design and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, water supply and sewage systems.<br />Civil engineering is a broad field containing many engineering sub-fields:<br />Transportation engineering<br />Environmental engineering<br />Geotechnical engineering<br />Construction engineering<br />
  11. 11. The Future<br />The employment of engineers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations over the next decade. <br />Civil engineers should see the largest employment increasewith a growth of about 24% in the next decade.<br />New technologies continue to improve the design process, enabling engineers to produce and analyze various product designs much more rapidly than in the past.<br />
  12. 12. Engineering Ethics<br />“Engineers shall hold paramount the safety, health and welfare of the public and shall strive to comply with the principles of sustainable development in the performance of their professional duties.”<br />“Engineers shall perform services only in areas of their competence.”<br />“Engineers shall issue public statements only in an objective and truthful manner.”<br />
  13. 13. Mississippi River Bridge Collapse<br />Minneapolis, Minnesota<br />Collapsed during rush hour August 1,2007<br />Design flaw in structural plates <br />Killed 13 people, injuring 145 <br />

  30. 30. Cutting Edge Technology<br />in coastal management is a perfect example of how civil engineering can be used to solve problems that affect many nations worldwide.<br />engineers designed groynes, or hydraulic structures perpendicular to the sea, made of anything from wood and concrete to rocks in order to absorb longshore drift.<br />These simple structures are engineered to enhance beach protection by filtering sand so it will absorb wave energy.<br />Ocean Integrated Research Observatory Networks. This network of ocean observatories must be self-sustainable due to the fact that they cannot be accessed by ship regularly due to fact that they will be located from any shoreline. These facilities will enable scientist to study the ocean in order to not only facilitate coastal management and defense by finding long-term solutions, such as extracting sand from the ocean floor to replace the eroded sand on the coasts, but to also understand ocean environments and ocean-atmosphere interface.<br />French architect named Jacques Rougerie designed an underwater museum to be constructed off the shore of Alexandria, Egypt. <br />

  32. 32. Conclusion<br />broad field with a long history in human society that dates back as far as 4000 BC.<br /> invention of  wheel, ramps, platforms and basic too led to the creation such ancient wonders as the Egyptian pyramids. <br />civil engineers have and will always play a crucial part in humanities ability to expand in every direction.  Every individual in the world is affected by the designs engineers put forth for everything from roads, dams, canals, buildings and bridges to sewage treatment and water purification.<br />
  33. 33. Conclusion<br />civil engineer can apply their knowledge to specific fields such as geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, surveying, construction engineering, environmental engineering, structural engineering, <br />to become a civil engineer a bachelor’s degree with a major in civil engineering must be obtained. Universities in the United States usually appoint a Bachelor of Engineering after three to five years of  means you have taken the first step towards becoming a certified engineer.<br />sky’s the limit and the opportunities are endless for those who choose to pursue a career civil engineering.<br />
