Building and civil engineering is a demanding and exciting process in which the constructions built provide enduring testimonies to the imagination, skill and initiative of all those concerned. The understanding of these process includes a knowledge of what buildings are made of, how they are put together, how they stay up, how they work, how they are operated and maintained, how they are repaired and even how they are pulled shown. The studies involved, of both process and product, are interdisciplinary, embracing many and varied skills and specialism.
