Civil engineering is "a branch of engineering that encompasses the conception, design, construction, and management of residential and commercial buildings and structures, water supply facilities, transportation systems for goods and people, as well as control of the environment for the maintenance and improvement of the quality of life. Civil engineering is a people-serving profession; it includes planning and design professionals in both the public and private sectors, contractors, builders, educators, and researchers who strive to meet the needs and desires of the community."  Lazuruk, Kenneth and Palevsky, Gerald. “Civil Engineering.” AccessScience. McGraw-Hill Education, 2014. Web. 5 Oct. 2015.
