Frederick’s Answer

Skills in mathematics is essential in almost every field of engineering including Civil Engineering, so strong math skills will be required to become a Civil Engineer. In high school take the maximum numbers of math courses your high school offers. Science classes are also very important including physics and chemistry so try to concentrate on them. During college you will need to pick a major but this is usually after your sophomore year. The first two years of college are pretty much the same and after that you need to pick a major in Civil Engineering, such as structures, transportation etc. To be a civil engineer you will need the skills to solve problems and perform research and analysis in many different areas. The ability to take the sills you develop in school and apply them to everyday issues are essential for Civil Engineering.


Good luck in the future

Christina J.’s Answer

I agree with Fred. I would only add that it's becoming more and more important that you can write well. Engineering can involve a lot of report writing - we have to document all of our cool projects through the planning, execution, and completion phases. it's a lot of work, but without this documentation other engineers would not be able to build off of our advancements as easily.
