Choosing to be a Civil engineering major is for students who want a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, Civil and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings. Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering. Civil Engineering majors compete in many college level competitions, the well know is “Concrete Canoe”. Top Civil Engineering Schools seek students who are able to co-op (work/study) during their time in college.
Why is this Important?
- When students read what the industry reads, you better understand the ACTUAL major
- Magazines, Blogs and Newspapers in the industry provide a wealth of information
- Industry publications help you research the major in the way it’s used in the profession
