Hi Niño A. Thanks so much for your question. I see that you posted this question a little while ago so I hope my answer to you (or others who may read this response) is still helpful.

In general, "better" is in the eye of the beholder. In other words, when someone is trying to decide what is better, they really have to decide what is better for them. In the case of civil engineering or computer engineering, it is important for you to understand what is required in each of those fields. There are loads of online research tools that can give that guidance. If you happen to know people who work in these fields, talking to them about what they do everyday is a golden opportunity.

Having completed my engineering degree a while ago, and still working in technology with my engineering hat, one of the many things that I have continued to find to be true is that my engineering training has and continues to help me on my ability to problem solve. It happens that I took a fair amount of programming classes while I was in college...but..even as an employee, I continue to learn new programming languages. It is a good bet that in the civil engineering field, there are opportunities for continuous learning that I imagine many in that field would take advantage of.

A person who remains curious, a person who is always wondering and exploring why something works the way it does and is there a better way for that thing to work...that level of curiosity will be beneficial, regardless of the type of engineering discipline that is chosen.

Best of luck!

Neither degree nor profession is better.

Civil engineering is an exciting field where you would be supporting civil (city, state, federal government) building projects such as designing and overseeing roads, bridge construction, housing, and water systems. Jobs would include working for these organizations. There are also jobs in industry, many large companies that manage construction projects worldwide employ civil engineers. You would learn math, engineering and other skills.


Computer engineering is also a great field to consider. You would be working across a wide range of companies and organizations managing their IT (info technology) computer system, designing software for business, gaming, and other efforts. Jobs are very available and pay well. You will need to have some math skills and learn computer programming.


So the answer depends on what you enjoy doing and what your strengths are.
