Civil engineers can specialize in any of the diverse aspects of their profession,such as project management, construction, environmental analysis, design and planning. They work together with other professions concerned with the environment, town planning, architecture and community development. Some civil engineers work on construction sites, while others are office-based. Certain projects require years of involvement while others are completed within weeks. hence civil engineering career is full of variety
