Civil Engineering



Civil engineering is a branch of engineering that brings together every building that human beings will need with different materials and designs and turns thought into action. Civil engineering means civilization. With this definition, civil engineering is the founder and developer of civilization. 

  • We can list the works of civil engineering as follows; 
    • All kinds of building construction, 
    • Dams, waterways, sewage and storm water lines, 
    • Steel, reinforced concrete, wooden or stone bridges, 
    • Stone, asphalt concrete roads, 
    • Ports, airports and bus stations, 
    • Tunnels, underground storage, 
    • Rail and teren roads, subway tramways, 
    • Such as industrial buildings, energy facilities. 

Civil engineering is the locomotive of engineering as a profession that does all kinds of construction you can think of. 

  • Civil engineering construction stages and building; 
    • Pre-feasibility of a job to be done, 
    • Planning after pre-feasibility, 
    • Planning and designing after planning, 
    • Post-project construction works, 
    • Construction forward and advanced control inspection. 


  • The specific main areas of activity of civil engineering: 
    • Environment, geology and soil science, 
    • Geotechnics, hydraulics, hydrology and water structures science, 
    • Static and strength science, 
    • Urbanism, zoning and urbanization science, 
    • The science of measuring, designing and projecting, 
    • Basic and underground engineering, 
    • Building materials science, 
    • Transport and communications science. 


  • Major sub-branches of civil engineering 
    • Sea, shore, coast, bridge and marine structures, 
    • All structural elements above and below ground, 
    • The behavior of all structures in the ground milk and underground against earthquake, wind, vibration and different effects, 
    • All kinds of transport and communication elements, 
    • Hydraulic hydrology and waterworks, 
    • Structures of main and intermediate traffic elements required for the smooth progress of traffic. 


  • What about professional progress in civil engineering? 

After completing the basic vocational education of the engineer person, they can attend the vocational training courses opened by professional chambers, companies and firms. In addition, they can make an academic career at the university. It should constantly follow new construction technologies and integrate them into their projects. 

In addition to civil engineering; Engineering branches such as construction technician, environmental engineering, and architecture are very similar. There are many common courses among these engineering branches.
