Best Civil Engineering colleges in Connecticut 2021

Have you ever wondered who builds storm drains and sidewalks, or have you ever been fascinated by the grand structure of a bridge? The artists responsible for the structures in our every day life are those who earn their degree in civil engineering, of course! Civil engineering professionals are responsible for the engineering and construction of public infrastructure, such as, roads, buildings, tunnels, airports, dams, bridges, and water supply systems.

A degree in civil engineering requires strong math,physics, and chemistry skills. The degree can often be interdisciplinary depending on one’s career goals. Along with the foundational coursework of mathematical and computational methods, students can take classes in urban planning, computer science or environmental science. Many schools also offer programs strictly in civil engineering. Once a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering is completed, students can go on to receive a master’s degree in civil engineering or in another related discipline. After receiving a bachelor’s degree, students can work in careers such as construction managers, environmental engineers, transportation engineers, or structural engineers. This degree also prepares students for the licensure that is required for anyone who provides engineering services to the public.
