What is a civil engineer?
Civil engineers dream up creative, practical solutions and work with teams of smart, inspiring people to invent, design, and build things that matter. Civil engineering is all around you, from the clean drinking water you have in your home, to the roads, sidewalks, and subways you use to get around. Even your home, school, sports arenas, and amusement parks are all standing because of the work of civil engineers.

Civil engineers are typically specialized in one or two major disciplines, including transportation, water resources, geotechnical, environmental, and structural engineering.
