All Civil Engineering & Construction

Considering the scope and scale of the projects civil engineers can end up managing, this profession often appeals to highly responsible individuals. Decision-making, organizational, and leadership skills are as important as a good grasp of mathematics and spatial relationships.​The planning, design, and execution of complex construction projects all fall under the civil engineer’s remit. In most states and foreign countries, you will need a license to practice as one. Specific requirements vary, but any accredited 4-year degree from a recognized U.S. or European university will generally be accepted.​As with any other engineering degree, coursework will focus on mathematical and scientific principles that can be applied to the art of engineering. You will be expected to complete problem-solving exercises individually and as part of a team, and gain familiarity with a range of computer software and engineering technologies.
