This section offers ebooks and digital textbooks on the topics of civil engineering, surveying and building, all to aid you in successfully completing your studies!
Civil engineers deal with the construction, design and the maintenance of the things being built around us. This includes things such as roads, bridges, canals, airports, sewage systems, pipelines and railways. It is typically broken down into sub-disciplines:
Materials science and engineering
Water resources engineering
The profession of surveying is responsible for determining the terrestrial three-dimensional positions of points and the distances and angles between them. These points are on the surface of the Earth and are often used to establish maps and boundaries for ownership reasons and also locations or other reasons required by the government or civil law.
As a surveyor, you will be working with elements of physics, geometry, trigonometry, regression analysis, metrology, programming languages, engineering and the law. They use a vast array of equipment, typically things such as robotic tool stations, GPS receivers, retroreflectors, 3D scanners, digital levels, subsurface locators and drones.
