    Cyclovenom put it quite succinctly.

    One can find more information here about civil engineering in general - http://www.asce.org/asce.cfm [Broken]

    1. Planning - one must determine capacity
    2. Design - using appropriate codes and engineering design tools
    3. Construction - an engineer will likely supervise construction
    4. Operations - including maintainence
