THE PRACTICAL EFFECT OF COMPUTER IN CIVIL ENGINEERING SERVICES

ABSTRACT
Computer can be defined as a device that accepts data as an input and process it to produce information as output. Computer is fast growing and more domains are recorded almost on daily basis. The computer as it remains today is the most technologically advanced medium of communication. It is a multimedia information super highway that facilitates educational system, business, sports, politics and other endeavors across international boundaries.

Civil engineers plays a major role in developing workable solutions to construct, renovate, repair, maintain, and upgrade infrastructure. The infrastructure includes roads, mass transit, railroads, bridges, airports, storage buildings, terminals, communication and control towers, water supply and treatment systems, storm water control systems, wastewater collection, treatment and disposal systems, as well as living and working areas, recreational buildings, and ancillary structures for civil and civic needs. Without a well-maintained and functioning infrastructure, the urban area cannot stay healthy, grow, and prosper.

Basically, the practical effect of computers in Civil engineering cannot be over emphasized. The desired objectives are so broad and encompass orderly progression of interrelated components and information to arrive at the visually pleasing, environmentally satisfactory, and energy-frugal points. Civil engineering projects are actually systems requiring the skills and inputs of many diverse technical specialties, all of which are subsets of the overall civil engineering profession.

In this research project work, the researcher went deeper in sourcing for more information concerning the research work, which contains five chapters starting from chapter one.

CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
1.1Introduction
Civil engineering, a branch of engineering that encompasses the conception, design, construction, and management of residential and commercial buildings and structures, water supply facilities, and transportation systems for goods and people, as well as control of the environment for the maintenance and improvement of the quality of life. Civil engineering includes planning and design professionals in the public and private sectors, contractors, builders, educators, and researchers. More so, the civil engineer...
