Civil engineering vs. Architecture

civil engineers and architects often work within the same field of building design, but civil engineers have the immense legal responsibility of ensuring the structural integrity of the building.

Architects decide what the building look like, keeps the lines of the building elegant, makes the building a beautiful and interesting place to be. 

They take courses in design and architectural history and design the floorplans and appearance of the building. 

The architects actually usually decide the materials of the building and they  must be brilliant in Design.

The role of an architect is not just to design buildings. Through the design, the architect must also protect the health, safety and welfare of the general public and the users of the buildings.

Civil Engineers deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and natural built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings, so basically civil engineers are not as concerned with how a structure looks as they are if it stays STANDING.

so you can say that :-

Architecture is more creative

Civil Engineering is more analytical
