Have you ever driven across a well-designed bridge, travelled through a tunnel carved through a mountain, or marveled at the layout of your city’s airport? Chances are you were admiring the work of a civil engineer. The job of a civil engineer is to design and oversee construction of roads, tunnels, bridges, buildings, airports, and even sewage systems. In many cases, a primary focus for civil engineers is to ensure that construction projects meet local, state, and federal environmental regulations.
