Civil Engineering involves the application of basic scientific and technological principles to the design and construction of facilities infrastructure for the welfare of the community. It is concerned with such projects as railways, harbours and docks, road systems, bridges, water supply and wastewater treatment, dams, tunnels and underground construction, power projects, offshore structures and commercial and industrial buildings. Many engineering projects require a close working relationship with other groups - other types of engineers, planners, architects and environmental scientists. More detailed knowledge of mining engineering will allow Civil graduates to gain a qualification that extends their expertise into the mining field and allow them to work in the mining industry.
