Civil engineering is arguably the most diverse of all of the engineering professions. The skills of the civil engineer have long been recognised as providing the tools for the solution of engineering problems to benefit society.
However, the role of the civil engineer is rapidly changing as society changes. No longer is the civil engineer responsible only for the technical aspects of the scheme, but is increasingly required to be proactive in proposing and seeking funding for engineering schemes.
