Civil engineering deals with development in terms of conceiving, planning, designing, executing, managing, maintaining and rehabilitating infrastructure and building facilities. This is a diversified discipline which deals with all types of human endeavors related to the growth of civilization in shape of buildings, transportation systems, industry, power systems, water resources, environment and geo sciences. This will depend on your interest and choice of module during your course of study. Your choice of degree modules and final-year projects can boost your chances of getting hired into a particular division, so give some thought to the specialism you'd like to work in. Closely aligned to the position, it does give you an advantage as it shows that you already have an interest in the area. Civil Engineers work in a broad spectrum of engineering situations and find employment opportunities in both public and private sectors such as construction firms, manufacturing companies, power companies, petroleum industry and with consulting engineering firms. Many opportunities for civil engineering employment exist in both public and private sector. The tasks of Engineering Management for construction projects are assigned mostly to Civil Engineers.
