Civil Engineering
Innovations Within the Profession
Innovation in civil engineering is very critical. In order to build bridges, roads and buildings based on risky terrains, civil engineers, must always be innovative.

A great example of a current innovation in Civil Engineering is the Palm Island in Dubai. In order for engineers too accomplish building massive structures on sand, they had to be innovative.
There are also other structures

Why I chose this Career Path?
Civil engineers are the designers and builders
of cities, transportation.They design and supervise construction of buildings, highways, bridges, foundations.

Why I choose to become a civil engineer is because; Civil engineering is a rewarding, hands-on, people-oriented profession. Civil engineers have a positive impact on the quality of people’s lives. They improve the quality of life for millions and the environment that surrounds them people drive on the highways they design, live and work in the buildings and structures they design.
History of Civil Engineers: A Brief overview
Civil engineering is the oldest of the main disciplines of engineering. The early practice of civil engineering commenced around 2000 to 5000 BC in the Middle East when humans started to avoid the nomadic lifestyle. (

John Smeaton was the
first person
to actually call himself a
"Civil Engineer"
. These civil engineers built all types of structures, designed water-supply and sewer systems, designed railroads and highways, and planned cities. In 1828 the world's first engineering society came into being, the Institution of Civil Engineers in England.
