When it comes to construction, the word civil is from the Latin word “CIVIS” that means Citizen. The Word Civil in Civil Engineering depicts that it’s an engineering field that deals with non-military works or construction works meant for the citizens or civilians of a community.

You might have seen the abbreviation of civil as “Construct International Valued Important Landmarks” or “Construction investigation various information leveling” but all these abbreviations or full forms of Civil are not official.

These are just the self-originated or assumed full forms. In reality, the word “CIVIL” is a complete word rather than being an abbreviation.

We use a lot of short forms in Civil Engineering and construction like DPC, RCC, PCC, RRS, WBC. You can find all these meanings in our other pages of the blogs.

What is Civil Engineering?

Civil engineers combine creativity with imagination and technical expertise to design our built environments.

But as a civil engineer, what will you do?

You’ll be designing sustainable buildings and bridges that bring people together. You will be developing transport systems fit for our future. You’ll be benefiting humanity by providing clean water, energy, food, and shelter.

You’ll be building a world resilient to climate change and natural disasters. Civil engineers are improving the quality of the built environment.

For all of these things you want to achieve, you might become a civil engineer if you like developing ideas to change the world, applying math and science in an imaginative way, collaborating with others to work through challenging tasks, questioning how things are designed and built, using technology to find the most sustainable solutions, and seeing your ideas turned into reality.

Studying civil engineering involves learning how to be a designer, developing the skills to tackle the world’s sustainability issues, taking inspiration from experts in industry and academia, carrying out experiments to see how materials and structures behave, and extending the boundaries of what is known through research.

Going on field trips to enrich your learning. By doing these things, you’ll gain more than civil engineering theory.

You’ll have skills in design, problem-solving, project management, and creative thinking. You can work in industries like structural and architectural engineering, water engineering, geotechnical engineering, and transport and infrastructure, preparing you to make an impact on the world sustainably.
