2 Engineering involves

3 What’s unique to Civil Engineering? Designing structures that help people, such as – Roads – Buildings – Bridges – Tunnels – Water Treatment Plants – Dams

4 Do all Civil Engineers do the same thing? No, there are many different branches of Civil Engineering, which include: – Structural Engineering – Geotechnical Engineering – Transportation Engineering – Environmental Engineering – Water Resources Engineering

17 How do Civil Engineers design these structures?

18 First they have an idea...

19 Then they use computer programs to illustrate their idea...

20 And finally the idea turns into a reality!

23 What kind of education do I need to become a Civil Engineer? Degree from a 4-year accredited university Typical Civil Engineering classes – Calculus – Physics – Chemistry – English/Communications – Electives (i.e. History, French, Theatre, fun classes!) Start taking classes in high school if possible

24 What kind of people can become Civil Engineers? All kinds! Civil Engineering is a fun and rewarding career. You too can become a Civil Engineer!
