|"Civil engineering is a vital art, working with the great sources of power in nature for the wealth and well-being of the whole of society. Its essential feature is the exercise of imagination to engineer the products and processes, and develop the people needed to create and maintain a sustainable natural and built environment. It requires a broad understanding of scientific principles, a knowledge of materials and the art of analysis and synthesis. It also requires research, team working, leadership and business skills. Civil engineering is a classic, dynamic and creative profession." (Institute of Civil Engineers)
Civil engineering technologists play an essential role in this process. They are involved with the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and environmental assessment of infrastructure projects. Projects include highways, streets, bridges, dams and reservoirs, parks, subdivisions, industrial, commercial and residential buildings, water supply and wastewater systems and treatment facilities.
