|Description:||Civil engineers are stewards of the environment, ensuring that infrastructure is planned and built in compatibility with the environment. They also mitigate the damage from natural disasters, which has become an extremely challenging task in today’s crowded, urbanized world. Civil engineers are managers of complex projects. Recent technological advancements have made the construction of formerly impossible complex urban and industrial infrastructure projects a reality. Civil engineering is a multidisciplinary profession, incorporating a number of scientific and engineering disciplines. Civil engineers are continually being challenged! Global trends, including increasing population and urbanization, result in problems surrounding infrastructure and the environment—and it is up to civil engineers to solve these problems.
Students in the College of Engineering have an opportunity to obtain work experience for a period of 8, 12 or 16 months between their third and fourth years. Students are paid a salary comparable to that of a graduating engineer.
