1.0ABSTRACT
The use of modern information and communication technology is considered to be an integral part of modern civil engineering. It is becoming essential for the introduction, implementation and integration of advance computer aided engineering techniques and method in the processes of civil engineering and construction domain. Today due to the introduction of new procurement system in civil engineering industry responding to new changes in the global economy, Modern ICT technology has attracted extraordinary importance. (ICT) information communication technology, as it name implies has being applied to so many aspect of civil engineering, without ICT I wonder what the world would have being like today, so I can say that ICT has a great impact In the lives of civil engineers and even in the entire civil engineering field. There are so many areas in life where ICT can be applied to civil engineering, areas like the construction of the dams and power stations that provide the electricity we use every day The water and sewage treatment plants that provide us with safe water supplies. The paths and roads we travel.

In fact most structures, large and small require ICT application,  Finally in areas of designing, planning and managing of the project also need the application of ICT.

CHAPTER ONE
2.0 INTRODUCTION OF ICT APPLICATION TO CIVIL ENGINEERING
In the present world today, many things have being done by using ict. We live in ICT Application environment to reach our goals. In civil engineering, we should think how to produce or improved things to improve our quality of lives. Whether we renew and improved available ideas or we create a new ideas that has never been created. To complete our goal, we need ICT Application as a guide In addition the effective and appropriate use of the modern information and communication technology (ICT) has become an essential requirement for civil engineering practitioners to assert themselves in the market. The mastering and effective implementation of modern ICT development is rather difficult to achieve due to rapid development of this technology which is quite difficult to catch up with. It is also said that in civil engineering offices the underlying construction project is the central focus point of all processes. The design process and its management are supported by hug number of software application all over its detail level and iteration cycles. However it is quite often that the various civil engineering designs are developed separately in parallel using several software applications. In civil engineering, we use ICT to develop our project. In ICT we use Application software, which is a program designed to make users more productive and to assist them with personal tasks. There are many categories of application software such as Business, Graphics and multimedia, Home/personal/educational, Communications, and And Utility Program and so on. We focused on Graphics and multimedia like CAD/CAM CAD is software to design their desire part and CAM software to convert CAD data into paths for Computer...
