What is Civil Engineering?

Civil engineers design, build, supervise, operate, and maintain construction projects and systems in the public and private sector, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment.

What Do I Need to Do to Become a Civil Engineer

Civil engineers need a bachelorís degree in civil engineering, in one of its specialties, or in civil engineering technology. They typically need a graduate degree and licensure for promotion to senior positions. Although licensure requirements vary within the United States, civil engineers usually must be licensed in the locations where they provide services directly to the public.

Why would I want to be an engineer?

Have you ever aspired to leave your mark on the world somehow? As a civil engineer, you have the opportunity to do this. The structure you help create will forever be attached to your name; it will become a monument to you, to show that you were there. After all of the hard work and dedication you put into the project, your reward is having something tangible to show for your efforts - and everyone will know it. This, for many people is reason enough as to why you should become a civil engineer.
