Discover Engineering

Has someone told you that you should be an engineer? Do you enjoy math and science? Do you like solving problems?

If you think you can relate to the questions above, Civil Engineering might be the right career for you. Civil Engineers impact the world around them every day. Most people think of civil engineering as people who build highways and bridges, but it is much more.

Civil Engineers design, construct, maintain society's infrastructure and protect the environment using math, science, teamwork, and inventive skills.

If you see yourself as a Civil Engineer in the future, start discovering the hands-on approach of engineering to see if it is something you would like to do as a career.

Are you cool enough to try this?
