Civil engineering deals with the construction, soil mechanics, transportation, municipal and sanitary, surveying and mapping, and hydraulics. While a construction engineer deals with the design and supervision of construction of bridges, buildings, tunnels and dams. Role of specialized soil mechanic engineers are vital and relevant for any structure to stand and stable. Transportation engineering deals with the planning, design and construction of roads, railways, airport, docks & harbours Broadly a civil engineer is expected to do planning, research, design and construction of buildings and roads; traffic and transportation, irrigation and power, water supply and sewage disposal, dams and reservoirs, ports and harbours, airways and navigation, treatment for industrial wastes and abatement of air pollution, noise pollution and disaster mitigation. Besides the basic and engineering sciences, the curriculum in Civil Engineering covers various professional subjeds e.g. structures, foundation, construction, work management and cost, transportation engineering, irrigation engineering. hydraulics, and environmental engineering, earthquake technology etc..
