Share this post

The civil engineering board exam for this year 2022 is fast approaching on May 1st and 2nd. Every civil engineering graduate is preparing to review for the upcoming board examination. Padilla Review Center is ready to foster those who want to review for their civil engineering board examinations. We are ready to help students ace and master their board examinations. However, we will tackle the overview of what is the coverage of the civil engineering board examination.

Civil Engineering in the Philippines is a practice field wherein civil engineers are the ones who are responsible for giving services in various ways such as consultation, design, preparation, and implementation of plans, and supervising the building or demolitions of civil works like streets, buildings, bridges, etc. On the other hand, a civil engineer is a person who has licensed registers under the Board of Civil Engineers.
