Civil engineering is the oldest branch of the profession of engineering that deals with planning, design, construction and maintenance of the built environment on which society depends. Many of the life sustaining important things in our lives are the product of civil engineering. There are two broad types of civil engineer leaders: those who work in creating visible infrastructures such as buildings, highways, bridges, airports, ports, waterways, and dams; and those who work behind the scenes such as in building foundations, water treatment plants, water supply pipe systems, ecological restoration and underground drainage systems.
