Civil Engineering is the engineering of construction. It is related to the analysis, planning, design, development, use, maintenance, and improvement of infrastructures including highways, railway track, harbor, airport, building, dams, and irrigation canals. The decisions made by Civil Engineers affect our daily life, from the road we drive on; to the buildings we live and work in, to the water we consume.

Infrastructure is believed to be one of the indicators for economic growth. In a large nation including Indonesia, the need for high level expertise in civil engineering is the key to the usefulness, maintenance, rehabilitation, and development of the infrastructure.
