What is the Course about?

Civil engineering deals with the built environment and encompasses much of what defines modern civilization. Civil engineering is responsible for the development of buildings, transport networks, water provision, i.e. all the essentials we depend on. Increasingly, the role of the civil engineer in
developing sustainable solutions to challenges presented by climate change is becoming more important.
