Civil Engineering

Although little publicized, the civil engineering profession has nonetheless been ubiquitous for a very long time, as evidenced in Roman roads or aqueducts. In every age, civil engineering has imagined and built the infrastructures which are necessary for the well-being of humankind. Transportation networks are more complex today, building is bolder, and materials are more varied, but the basic mission remains the same: putting the equipment that society needs at its disposal. Whether parts of bridges, buildings, dams or tunnels, water and energy delivery systems, and protection against natural dangers, or even transportation planning, civil-engineering projects are long-term ones involving the consideration of their sustainability, their environmental impact, or territorial development, as well as social and economic considerations. As a civil engineer you not only participate in the design, planning, and execution of infrastructures but also in their maintenance and use. Depending on the scope of the project, one and the same person can be entrusted with all of these tasks or they can be shared out as team work. One of your tasks consists of defining the size of the work. As the case may be, you will succeed thanks to statics (the calculation of stresses in a structure), your expertise in the behavior of materials (resistance and deformability), and your knowledge of geotechnology (soil characteristics), of hydraulics, or in the field or energy or transportation. Work, which increasingly relies on computer modeling tools.
