Civil Engineering is without doubt the highest profile engineering discipline simply because it's projects are out there for us all to see.
But that still doesn't take away the fact that it's very much taken for granted as this entertaining yet informative video from ICE points out.
Take three minutes out to watch it and open your mind to what, where, and why engineers contribute to our daily lives.
My only criticism is that the front-end is very London centric – a sad reflection of the way media operates in this country.
