Civil Engineering : Civil Engineering A People Serving Profession Civil Engineering : Civil Engineering Civil engineering focuses on the infrastructure of the world:
Water works, Sewers, Dams, Power Plants, Transmission Towers/Lines, Railroads, Highways, Bridges, Tunnels, Irrigation Canals, River Navigation, Shipping Canals, Traffic Control, Mass Transit, Airport Runways, Terminals, Industrial Plant Buildings, Skyscrapers, etc. Civil Engineering : Civil Engineering In the beginning, Civil Engineering included all engineers that did not practice military engineering; said to have begun in 18th century France
First “Civil Engineer” was an Englishman, John Smeaton in 1761
Civil engineers have saved more lives than all the doctors in history --- development of clean water and sanitation systems Civil Engineering : Civil Engineering Henry H. White, first KY Civil Engineering Graduate from Bacon (Georgetown) College in 1840
Fall of 1886, “State College” (UK) established civil engineering degree
John Wesley Gunn of Lexington received first Civil Engineering degree from A & M College (UK) in 1890 CE Student Organizations : CE Student Organizations Chi Epsilon – Civil Engineering honorary
