Welcome to the Civil Engineering School!
Part of Engineering and Technology

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that mostly relates to the designing, planning, maintaining and construction of subjects such as buildings, large scale workings, drainage and roads. Civil engineering has a large impact on modern society, as it dictates how lots of processes and services work together.

Topics covered within the field of Civil engineering include road design, drainage and sewer design, site layouts, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, construction engineering, and surveying.

Divisions and departments[edit]

Divisions and departments of schools exist on pages in the "Topic:" namespace. Start the name of departments with the "Topic:" prefix; departments reside in the "Topic:" namespace. Departments and divisions link to learning materials and learning and research projects. Divisions can link subdivisions or to departments. For more information on schools, divisions and departments look at the naming conventions.

Active participants[edit]

The histories of Wikiversity pages indicate who the active participants are. If you are an active participant in this school, you can list your name here (this can help small schools grow and the participants communicate better; for large schools it is not needed).

Lessons[edit]

Get to work writing lessons! Simply make a link to the name of the lesson (lessons are independent pages) and start writing!

Research projects[edit]

This feature of Wikiversity will be implemented later pending further discussion.

  • Hydrostatic stability (bouyancy) applied to tall structures as protection from liquifaction
  • Fourier Transforms
  • Competition for solution to the reconstruction of the New Orleans basin: conversion to a rigid plane and pole structure extending to the Gulf from the higher plateau preceding the basin.
  • Pervious concrete
