Civil 3D civil engineering design software supports BIM (Building Information Modelling) with integrated features to improve drafting, design and construction documentation.
Civil Drafters, Designers, Architects use computer-aided design (CAD) programs to draft, scale and superfine-tune drawings and maps for roads, bridges, and other construction projects.
All civil engineering students are supposed to know how to use AutoCAD. Most universities that offer the civil engineering program have a module which teaches it, but the information is often basic, leaving students with basic AutoCAD skills.
AutoCAD can be used in almost any civil engineering field for design and detailing, and it is the best for detailing structural drawings. Further, it can be used to design and detail civil works of any kind.
