What is Civil
Engineering?


Civil engineering is a professional
engineering discipline that deals with the
design and construction of the physical
and natural built environment, including
works such as bridges, roads, canals,
dams and buildings.
Civil engineering is the oldest
engineering

What is Civil
Engineering?

Civil Engineering is nothing but
simple common sense –
however – common sense is
very uncommon
3
Science, Engineering,
Technology



Science deals with humans’
understanding of the real world about
them – the inherent properties of space,
matter, energy and their interactions.
Engineering is the application of
objective knowledge to creation of plans,
designs and means for achieving desired
objectives.
Technology deals with tools and
techniques for carrying out plans.

TIPS
Use lead pencil for LHS panels on note book
• Use relevant literature
• Well arranged your collected information
• Note book should represent your own work
• Adopt same style of writing, formatting and
expressions through out the all experiments
• Can paste relevant picture, figures, equations
and graphs
TIPS
Should submit your practical note book
very next day of practical
• Be careful about attendance and grading
• There will be individual grading/marking
for each experiment
• Believe in neat, clean and your own work
• You may be tested any time during
experiment or after that in shape of oral
viva
