Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering in Punjab from Quest Group of Institutions provide the way of directing the great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of the society. It is the oldest and broadest engineering discipline, which deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. Civil engineering as a career is a challenge, self-expression, achievement and personal reward through their work. Civil engineers build bridges, roads, canals, dams, tall buildings, tunnels, highways as well as water supply and sewage systems/ by applying physical laws, mathematical equations and theories of mechanics. The role of a Civil Engineer is to utilize the available resources An Expert Civil engineer is expected to consider many factors in the design process, from the construction costs and expected lifetime of a project, to government regulations and potential environmental hazards such as earthquakes. Civil engineering has many engineering sub-fields, such as transportation engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, and construction engineering.
