Civil & Municipal Engineering
Although you may not realize it, municipal engineering impacts your day-to-day life in many ways. From the road you used to safely drive your child to soccer practice, the watermain that delivered clean and safe water to your home, and the sewers to quickly and efficiently transport storm and waste water to treatment plants, municipal engineering is critical for ensuring many of the basic necessities of your life are provided for.
As the existing infrastructure ages, maintaining and replacing these critical assets is becoming more and more important. Municipal engineering designs need to consider the increasing demand for cost-effective solutions to age old problems, while also minimizing impacts to the environment. New techniques, such as pipe-relining (vs. full pipe replacement), trenchless pipe installation (vs. open cut installation) and roundabouts (vs signalized intersections) have been developed to address these issues, and municipal engineering firms need to be able to incorporate these into their designs.
