Field of civil engineering is expanding, and with that we need to expand our thoughts, and take every profession within civil engineering into consider, engineering materials list is growing every year, and new materials are introduced in the building process, energy prices are rising and people are demanding for more, this report will discuss the future of civil engineering and the occurring changes. Aggregates for example, the ones used in asphalt mix, particularly hot mix asphalt, can be sourced from a former concrete mix, a study in a south Korean journal shows that recycled concrete content can be used in asphalt as a sub-base layer, while recycled asphalt pavement can be used as a base layer, however a blend of recycled and virgin materials gives satisfactory result, especially when put in a 60/40 rate. (Yoon-Ho Cho) Everyone knows and observes the current real estate boom In the U.A.E, especially in the emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. But no one knows what will happen in the future, the rise is expected to .. and here fore, the quantity and mass of civil engineering education will respond to that. Well in the past, the demand for civil engineers was faint My father, 25 prior to now, was in the university, he said: the students who studied civil engineering were quite few, and some were leaving the major. Emirates University, which was the main high education in the U.A.E, was the only governmental operated institute to offer civil engineering. The H.C.T system across U.A.E lacked this major because there was no or low demand to it. But today, the demand for civil engineering studied has risen much often, and foreign civil engineers are welcomed to work here, especially those with international skills. Studying engineering is a whole different way of learning. Because engineering, unlike other majors is full of applications. So that’s why civil enginnering study should be full of excitement, technology and fun. New civil engineering students use and...
