What is Civil  Engineering?  | (Why Civil engineering and civil engineers are important)


when you hear the term civil engineering your eyes and ears usually don’t perk up an anticipation like they do when you hear new iPhone or driverless cars or artificial intelligence instead you think bridges roads dams airports traffic patterns same old same old it’s just buildings the ones that we see every day civil engineers are boring right well civil engineering is anything but boring on the surface okay yes maybe a little but let your mind wander a little deeper into what each of these boring functions of civil engineering really means in 2018 and beyond civil engineering innovations will have the greatest impact on our quality of life and here’s why what’s the most important resource on the planet water who figures out how to get water from point A to point B well that would be civil engineers our current infrastructure is very very old bridges roads sewers sidewalks and airports whose job is it to design create and build new better infrastructure civil engineers buildings are the largest contributor to greenhouse gases not the sheep in Australia who has the power to make better buildings more efficient buildings that would be civil engineers self-driving cars are all the rage but what is required for us to enjoy cities full of self-driving cars with fewer accidents and less traffic traffic engineering whose job is that civil engineers urbanization means we have less land on which to build so we must go taller who designs really tall buildings civil engineers to have a smart planet we need smart cities which require smart buildings who builds smart buildings smart civil engineers clearly civil engineers have one of the world’s greatest jobs they build the quality of life the built environment is the largest industry in the world it is primed for disruption and innovation yes Architects contractors are all part of the ecosystem but it’s time for civil engineers to step up and lead the effort to invent and create innovative startups that really make a difference [Music] you

    I do not know the standards of other countries (but I have a guess), however, building industry is the most affected in corruption in Hungary, those are so expensive investments, that are never missed by influential politicions, and this is the greatest threat which can prevent humanity from development.

    A typical example is when a constructions price is doubled or even tripled till the work is done… So sad. ON THE OTHER HAND, it's a nice, important profession!

    Civil Engineering is an ancient engineering. Now, the innovation focuses in application of analytical tools, materials and construction technique.
