Civil Engineering Overview 

Profiles of civil engineers are available on this site to provide insight into the activities, educational preparation, and daily challenges of individuals working in the field of Civil Engineering.  Profiles include students, those just starting their career, and those who have been working for decades.  They cover a variety of career paths and educational backgrounds.  While these are useful tools for glimpsing into the working lives of Civil Engineers, it may also be helpful to network with professionals who can provide even more input, or answer your specific questions.  Bear in mind that these profiles are simply snapshots of Civil Engineers at one point in their career.  It is likely that these people have moved on to other jobs, perhaps expanded their education, or made other changes since the profile was created.  These individuals are not available for individual contact, but have provided candid descriptions of their education, work experiences, and career paths.  You may select a profile by name, job function, company, or geography.
