Civil engineering field of work comprises of industrial plant buildings, water works, river navigation, airports, tall buildings, transmission towers/lines, power plants, canals, traffic control, dams, shipping canals, bridges, rail-roads, sewers and highways. It is one of the oldest engineering discipline and the largest area of engineering. A candidate, who specializes in this field, becomes known as a civil engineers. A civil engineer requires not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills. Civil engineers work in teams or in coordination with many other engineers.
