Construction Engineering and Management

Construction engineering and management refers to the use of critical thinking in technical and scientific fields to improve a construction project. It enables engineers to oversee a building project from start to finish, coordinating all the different professionals involved in such a project, including architects, builders, electricians, plumbers, and financiers. Much of construction management involves keeping risk to a minimum by focusing on safety and compliance with local, state, and federal building codes. In addition, it employs new technologies such as building information modelling, virtual reality, and other visualization tools to improve construction techniques.

Structural Engineering

Structural engineering deals with the ‘bones and muscle’ of construction that create man-man structures. Structural engineering theory is based upon applied physical laws and empirical knowledge of the structural performance of different materials and geometries. In addition, it employs the understanding and calculation of the stability, strength, rigidity, and earthquake-susceptibility of structures to be built.

Geotechnical Engineering

This sub-field of civil engineering is also known as geotechnics. It deals with the engineering behaviour of earth materials. For this, it utilizes the knowledge of other disciplines like hydrology, geology, geophysics, etc. Its applications can be found in mining, offshore constructions, petroleum engineering and more.

Transportation Engineering

Transportation engineering is a branch of civil engineering that is involved in the planning, design, operation, and maintenance of safe and efficient transportation systems. These systems include roadways, railways, waterways, and intermodal operations.

Water Resource Engineering

Water resources engineering is the study and management of equipment, facilities, and techniques used to manage and preserve life’s most plentiful resource. In addition to assessing how and the best ways in which to control water as it pertains to water-related activities – such as irrigation, waste disposal and canal development – water resource engineers are also frequently involved in water management to ensure that it’s safe to drink both for humans, plants, and animal usage.
