Civil engineering plays an important role in society by designing, constructing, managing, and maintaining infrastructure and facilities that we depend on.
Have you ever used a cross walk?
Do you drive your car on the highway?
Are you able to flush your toilet?
Have you turned your water faucet on today?
Have you passed by the construction site for a high-rise?
Do you use your public park?
Can you cross a bridge to get over a river?
Have you stopped at a red light?
Then you have a civil engineer to thank for that! I think civil engineering may be one of the least understood fields that we all rely on, but that’s because infrastructure is all around us and we often don’t think about how it got there or who is behind it.I love being a civil and environmental engineer because my work helps society. I’m making the world safer for people and the environment!
What’s your field?
