Civil Engineering Courses by Hamid El Darwich:

You need a course that tells you everything about Civil Engineering ? it's here. 

Story of the Course:

When I was first year in college, nobody told me what Civil Engineering is about; you know people just say its designing buildings (but nothing specific !!), so I started asking myself: then what is the difference between civil engineering and architecture. Therefore, I had no idea about what I was going to learn in college and I had no idea whether I will like it or not.

I think colleges should give their students an overview about what they expect to learn from Civil Engineering. To solve this issue, I decided to create this course to help prospective students decide whether or not they really like civil engineering based on facts that I am going to state.

Why to take the course:

if you are a high school student or a student from other major considering transfer, then you should take this course because the information here might convince you to become a Civil Engineer.

Briefly, what is Civil Engineering:

The definition of Civil Engineering – as I see it- is a profession that deals with civilization development. Civil Engineering is the distant cousin of Military Engineering. The first is deals with cities and development, and the latter deals with defending the same city.

What are exactly the points covered in this course:

I will give an overview about every single course in Civil Engineering Branches. We have 5 Branches in Civil Engineering:

  • Structural Analysis & Design
  • Water & Environmental
  • Transportation
  • Geo-technical

After the course:

Students completing the course will have basic understanding of what Civil Engineering is about. This objective understanding will help you decide whether or not you should become a Civil Engineer.

The course is easy to follow; all of the resources needed are posted in the course content. What are you waiting for ! register now and have fun :)

Who is the target audience?
  • High School Students
  • Prospective Civil Engineering Students
  • College Students in other Majors
