Civil engineering is one of the most important, and perhaps least understood, areas in business and government today. A broad field, civil engineering covers geophysics, environmental engineering, water resources, surveying, construction, and a host of other categories of engineering. Whether you want to design roads, skyscrapers or sewer systems, you're looking to take part in civil engineering. A new feature produced by "Leading Edge" with host Jimmy Johnson, for Public Television, looks to shed light on this important field.
Defined by the official charter of the Institution of Civil Engineers in 1828 as the art of directing great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of man, civil engineering is a critical field that quietly affects everyone's lives in America.
Jimmy Johnson will host a segment covering Civil Engineering on The Leading Edge, exploring the history, the practice and the future of the art, the design, and the science of the civil engineering field.
