Course Title: CIVIL ENGINEERING

Course Description

CIVIL ENGINEERING AS A COURSE.
Civil engineering also referred to as site engineering is a branch of engineering that involves the maintenance, construction, and designing of physical and natural erected domain, which includes infrastructures example; bridges, dams, roads, sewerage systems, pipelines, constructional constituents of various railways, and other structures.
John Smeaton is the father of Civil engineering and his first construction was the Eddystone Lighthouse. In the year 1771, John Smeaton set up the Smeatonian Society of Civil engineers along with his workmates.
Civil engineering started in the Egypt era in the year 4000 and 2000 BC when man(men) abandoned their nativity which led the building of shelter for protection from external predators in a different location.
Transportation was necessary which came about the sailing and wheel.
The Pyramids in Egypt were one of the many substantial structures in the ancient time.It wasnt only the pyramids that were erected to start the essence of civil engineering other structures which include; the Appian Way made by the Romans, the Qanat Water management system which mass is about 71km, The great wall of China, to mention but a few.
The first institution to initiate civil engineering into the academic forum is the École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées which was set up in France. Other institutions followed suit example, Spain.
Also, the institution of civil engineers was initiated in London in the year 1818 the first president of this firm was Engineer Thomas Telford the Eminent Engineer.
IMPORTANCE OF CIVIL ENGINEERING
Civil engineering without doubt is indeed very important in the society these merits are listed thus;
1. Civil engineers design, handle and build massive construction infrastructures which include dams, bridges, airports etc.
2. Civil engineers have an inner satisfaction whereby he is happy for being useful to the society there are also the main figures in the society.
DUTIES OF A CIVIL ENGINEER
1. Taking part in construction projects.
2.Supervising building work.
3. Applying landmarks and surveys.
4. checking suitable sites.
5.Producing designs and blueprints and making sure they are followed correctly.
6. Estimates the cost of materials labor and equipment s.

Subject Combination for JAMB

Here are the courses to combine when filling this course for JAMB UTME

Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics

Course Cut of Point

is the minimum cut off point for CIVIL ENGINEERING as specified by JAMB.

Also, the required cut-of-points for this course (CIVIL ENGINEERING) depends on the school you are applying for, basically many schools have a different minimum cut of marks for accepting students in this area, which may be higher or even lower than JAMB recommend. Also, it is important to note that your O'level result (WAEC, NECO, GCE etc) is a primary criteria for screening, continue reading to know the required subjects you must have on your O'Level result
