Types of Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering Program
Civil Engineering Program

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, and railways.

Civil Engineering With Architecture

There is a growing demand for civil engineers that have an appreciation and understanding of architectural principles, which UNSW services with this fantastic degree. Creativity and inventiveness are the key attributes of successful graduates, and the ultimate aim is to help students become not only great engineers, but conceptual thinkers.

Coastal Engineering
Coastal Engineering

Coastal engineering is the study of the processes ongoing at the shoreline and construction within the coastal zone. The field involves aspects of nearshore oceanography, marine geology, and civil engineering, often directed at combating erosion of coasts or providing navigational access.

Construction Engineers
Construction Engineers

Construction engineers usually focus on a certain type of construction project. With a major in construction engineering, you will be prepared for work in any of the following types of projects. Building: These construction engineers usually focus on commercial building construction—houses or business buildings.

Earthquake Engineering
Earthquake Engineering

Earthquake engineering is the science of the performance of buildings and structures when subjected to seismic loading. It also assists analysing the interaction between civil infrastructure and the ground, including the consequences of earthquakes on structures.

Engineering Construction and Management
Engineering Construction and Management

The Construction Engineering and Management (CEM) program develops knowledge, tools, and methods that can add value to construction projects and organizations with a focus on risk management. In mature industries such as construction successfully managing risk largely determines the success or failure of development projects and enterprises.

Environmental Engineers
Environmental Engineers

Environmental engineers use core engineering skills and a deep understanding of the physical, chemical and biological principles of the local, regional and global environment to help change the world.

Geotechnical Engineering
Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical engineering is important in civil engineering, but also has applications in military, mining, petroleum and other engineering disciplines that are concerned with construction occurring on the surface or within the ground.

Geotechnical Engineers
Geotechnical Engineers

One cool thing about geotechnical engineering that may appeal to some civil engineering majors is the chance to do a lot of field work. Some of your work will also be in an office. Often the division is fairly even. The majority of civil engineers, including geotechnical engineers, work full time in their occupations.

Structural Engineers
Structural Engineers

Structural engineering is that part of civil engineering in which structural engineers are educated to create the 'bones and muscles' that create the form and shape of man made structures. Structural engineers need to understand and calculate the stability, strength and rigidity of built structures for buildings and nonbuilding structures.

Surveying
Surveying

Surveying is an important discipline in civil engineering that is intimately associated with a large number of facilities, including railways, roads, dams, bridges, and residential areas. Surveying creates the legal geographical boundaries and provides data for computer databases.

Transportation Engineers
Transportation Engineers

Transportation engineering, as practiced by civil engineers, primarily involves planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of transportation facilities. The facilities support air, highway, railroad, pipeline, water, and even space transportation.

Water Resources Engineer
Water Resources Engineer

Water resources engineering has its roots in the tasks of supplying water for human use, removing water when humans are finished using it, and developing methods of avoiding damage from excess water (floods).
