Inthe civil engineering seniors established the Civil Engineering Club as an undergraduate technical society. Inthis became the Rutgers Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers, one of the oldest of such chapters. Civil Engineering: A Very Short Introduction gives a brief yet broad explanation about civil engineering field.

It talks about how civil engineering is called by the name, the type of materials used, application of civil engineering knowledge, robustness of a structure, and lastly the future of civil engineering/5. The Civil Engineering story goes back to the early days of military aviation and is detailed in this comprehensive history of the career field.

In reality, civil engineers are a combination of career fields such as carpenters, electricians, firefighters, explosive ordnance disposal technicians, architects, community planners, and "dirt boyz".
