[Civil engineers works towards building sustainable and prosperous cities and nations]
Civil engineering is a broad discipline encompassing the development and conservation of a nation’s infrastructure (roads, rivers, coasts, mountains and forests, etc.) necessary for us to lead safe, secure and prosperous lives. Civil engineering also covers development of disaster prevention technologies, and green infrastructures that aim to harmonize the artificial cities with the nature and ecosystems, next-generation transportation services combining big data, and new materials for building durable structures.
Technologies in the Civil engineering date back to the history of mankind. Roads, bridges, water and sewage systems, railroads, ports, and other infrastructures make up our modern society. The world is now facing severe environmental, social, and economic problems. While inheriting and developing traditional technologies, civil engineering also incorporates State-of-the-art technologies (AI, automatic driving, 5G, etc.) to build sustainable and prosperous cities and nations for the next 50 years, 100 years, and beyond.
In this rapidly changing world, civil engineers, who can combine various technologies and ideas to enrich the lives of citizens in their respective regions, are absolutely needed all over the world.
