Disciplinary spotlight: Civil Engineering
Civil engineering is one of the broadest branches of the engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector, from municipal to federal levels, and in the private sector, from individual homeowners to international companies.
Unlike Construction Engineering, which is a relatively newer branch of engineering, Civil Engineering is one of the oldest and broadest, covering a wide range of sub-disciplines. Civil Engineers concentrate on infrastructure design, planning, and management, while Construction Engineers and construction managers focus on the on-site implementation of those designs created by civil engineers.
Civil Engineering is an emerging field in Georgia and the region due to the increasing importance of civil infrastructure and the support it provides for the economic development of the country.
