Retired Civil Engineer
I, personally, have had a very fulfilling career in Civil Engineering. Much of the work in this engineering field involves designing new or upgraded infrastructure to support towns, cities and entire regions. These projects can range in size from a small water system to a major airport expansion to a light rail system serving an entire city, and much more. What all these projects have in common is that they greatly contribute to the welfare, safety and advancement of our Society. Civil Engineers contribute directly to the wellbeing our communities and our Country in a way few other professions can. In addition there is a great demand for civil engineers with career paths available in local, state and federal government and in private consulting firms, or even private practice. A great career with a high degree of job security...what more could you ask?
Good Luck, Pete Sturtevant
