Study and scope of Civil and construction engineering in New Zealand

Last Updated on May 6, 2019 by West Highlander

The creation of structures like roads, dams, buildings, canals, bridges, pipelines, railways, sewerage systems, airports, etcetera; all comes under the purview of civil engineering. Being the second oldest discipline, only after military engineering, it accentuates upon structure design formation, construction and prolonging the physical and naturally raised environment. Civil engineering has various sub-disciplines such as coastal engineering, construction engineering, environmental engineering, forensic engineering, structural engineering and so forth. Construction engineering is one discipline that deals primarily with the planning, construction execution and management of infrastructural projects. While Civil engineers undertake designing part, execution part is performed by construction engineers.

The modern society has achieved its present eyeball grabbing look from the persistent and diligent efforts of industrious civil and construction engineers. Some civil engineers work upon creating a 360°modern look while others strive to create a fusion look by assimilating modern with traditional and there are still others who believe in restoration of the historical creations.
