Abstract:

With its long history, civil engineering is associated with many famous landmarks and monuments, and stories of those who built them. Modern civil engineering development is marked by key milestones and the efforts of pioneers. Chapter 1 gives an account of the landmarks and milestones of civil engineering and the human story behind them. Engineering Ethics is a required subject according to ABET, yet it is often difficult to include in other civil engineering courses. A treatment of the subject and a discussion on student ethics regarding academic honesty and student behavior in and out of classrooms are given in Chapter 2. After the BSCE degree, there are many career paths open to the degree holder. A typical path is to work as a civil engineer. Some high-profile private companies and public agencies who hire civil engineers are described in Chapter 3. Opportunities for advanced studies in civil engineering are also described, as well as opportunities outside of the civil engineering profession. The PE (Principle and Practice of Engineering) exam, the final step before obtaining a professional engineer license, is described in some detail.
