Piping engineering is a branch of civil engineering that deals with constructing robust and fully-operational piping systems. The branch is the cornerstone of various industries that involve transportation of fluids including construction, oil and gas industries, chemical plants and many more. It is the task of the pipeline engineer to design piping systems. Thus, piping engineers play a vital role in such industries. They create blueprints of the entire piping system, assist in selecting the best materials and supervise the whole pipeline construction process. They actively participate in all the phases of pipeline design and development.
