Civil Engineering Overview

Civil engineers are the most highly sought for building the global future. The present Civil Engineering practices in our country have certain defined targets and are aimed to:

  1. provide water supply for irrigation and drinking water needs;
  2. develop the minor, medium and major irrigation systems;
  3. provide the community housing and to investigate, design and manage the construction of multi-storey buildings;
  4. design a new road, free way or tunnel, bridges and manage their construction;
  5. provide various alternatives to relieve traffic congestion and to solve transport problems;
  6. mange the maintenance of the large bridges that link most cities;
  7. develop new ways of treating and reusing storm water and waste water to preserve precious resources;
  8. prevent contamination of soil and groundwater from industrial activities;
  9. design systems to control erosion in rivers and protect people from the devastation floods;
  10. develop the concept of a GREEN BUILDING that produces more electricity than it consumes and has a self-sufficient water supply;
  11. draw up innovative foundation systems for unstable soils;
  12. mitigate the natural disasters;
  13. design, plan and execute the environment friendly drainage and sewerage projects and
  14. work with a consortium to design eco-tourism lacustrine projects.
