Being a Civil Engineering student, I became more aware of not only the physical components of a structure but on its complex construction parts as well. We deal with those parts almost everyday since our subjects started decreasing into the major ones only. Before, I only think of civil engineering as a course wherein you design houses and buildings. Yes, civil engineers does that but not the designing that we are more aware of.
Civil engineer’s main priority in design is safety whereas when we say design, we think of the paint color, the type of tiles, what the roof will be made of, outdoor fountains from soothingwalls, the sofa in the living room, where the closet will be placed and many more. Again,yes, those are part of designing but in a different field. And I can say, design itself is very interesting no matter which field we look into.
