Civil engineers serve society by developing infrastructure such as bridges, buildings, airports, roads, railways, water and wastewater supply, treatment and reuse systems and transport systems while taking into consideration any social, environmental, and financial constraints.

They are creative and innovative problem solvers, who design, construct, manage, maintain, or rehabilitate all aspects of this infrastructure. The technical solutions they develop must take into consideration social, environmental and financial constraints.
