In general, engineers are said to apply the principles of science and math to develop economical solutions to technical problems. Civil Engineering is one of the oldest types of engineering. Civil engineers are involved in the design and construction of the physical structures that make up our surroundings such as roads, bridges, buildings and harbors. Coastal engineering, Construction engineering, earthquake engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, water resources engineers, material engineers, transportation engineers, structural engineers and urban engineering are just a sample of the specialty areas civil engineers can focus on. A P.E. license is needed in every state.
Civil engineers are the lowest paid engineers in the field. Median Salary by Years Experience
They should focus on taking math courses such algebra, geometry, calculus and trigonometry. English and humanities courses such as history, economics and sociology are also important. Lastly, students need to take chemistry and physics to prepare for college. The student should take as many of these classes as possible. This will allow for better qualifications to be accepted into college for civil engineering.
