When people say, “That’s a feat of engineering!” they’re likely talking about civil engineering – the oldest of the disciplines. From Roman aqueducts to superhighways, civil engineers make our world work better by planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of buildings, highways, railways, airports, seaports and the like.
There’s always a need for rebuilding, maintaining and further developing infrastructure, so the demand for civil engineers has never been greater. Civil engineers can find career opportunities in industry, government and private consulting.
