Construction Engineering includes the following: planning, managing and building establishments like highways, bridges, airports, railways, buildings, dams and reservoirs. The building of such projects requires knowledge in engineering basics, business administration, procedures, economics and human behavior. The professional construction engineer’s duties may include: designing temporary buildings, ensuring and controlling quality, planning and surveying the construction site, testing the construction materials on the site, surveying the layout of the construction sites, designing concrete mixtures, estimating costs, planning and scheduling, safety engineering, materials and purchases, selecting equipment, engineering costs and budget control. Construction engineering differs from building management in the level of mathematics, sciences and engineering required to solve the problems and processes involved in building.
