The Civil Engineering profession is one of the oldest branches of engineering which deals with planning, designing, construction, operation and management of facilities/infrastructure ranging from roads, bridges, dams, irrigation systems, transportation systems, water supply and treatment systems to solid and hazardous waste management, urban redevelopment and community planning. 

The responsibilities of a civil engineer directly impact the health, safety and welfare of the public and as such civil engineers have a responsibility to adhere to the strictest ethical values.
