Civil Engineer is not that one who just looks after the construction work but the one who makes dreams come true.
Simply, we can call engineer the god who builds other’s dreams, this line may be controversial but just look at these biggest and the incredible construction works all around the world.
As being a good scientist you have to with your original ideas but to be a good engineer you need to makes a design that works with a few ideas as possible.
