Why Civil Engineering?
Civil Engineering is the most diverse engineering field. Depending on who you work for you may work on: airports, bridges, buildings, canals, dams, environmental cleanup, excavations, harbors, highways, industrial facilities, landfills, construction or demolition, piers, pipelines, reservoirs, roads, site planning, tunnels, Navy Seabees, and water and wastewater treatment plants. (See a list of classes.)
Usually CEs get to work on many of these things. This is because Civil Engineers and the firms they work for are very diverse. They go from one project to the next, reforming their employees into new teams for new projects.
