I believe that Civil Engineering is important but the Civil Engineering field is dying, replacing this dying form of Engineering is Software Engineering. Software engineering is the study and an application of engineering to the design, development, and maintenance of software. Civil Engineering is still important today I don't disagree with you on that I disagree that it is the most important. In this technological modern world that we live in the need for Software Engineers is growing each year by the numbers. Civil engineering has 256,000 people and Software Engineers have over 600,000 in the world. Let me put it like this, at one point in the future buildings might not be built anymore or being built less and less but technology and software never die they continue to evolve and expand unlike a building.
