Men and women interested in designing and building bridges, ships, highways, dams, airports, or other large-scale projects people use every day can find nearly endless opportunities in civil engineering. A civil engineering career can take you to the top of a skyscraper, to the middle of the ocean, to an underground tunnel, and to one day, perhaps, a colony on Mars. What the job entails, what it pays, and future prospects are discussed along with insights from industry insiders.
