Civil Engineering is the broadest of the engineering disciplines, extending across many technical specialties, specialties that are not independent but interact with each other. Civil engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities that vary widely in nature, size and scope: space satellites and launching facilities, offshore structures, bridges, buildings, tunnels, highways, transit systems, dams, airports, irrigation projects, treatment and distribution facilities for water and collection and treatment facilities for wastewater.

In addition to facility design and construction, civil engineers also have options to teach and to participate in research. As you develop your skills, you will have the opportunity to move into the area of engineering management, overseeing the completion of entire projects.
