Unformatted text preview: CIVIL ENGINEERING Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE) > EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS > JOB OUTLOOK > SALARY A bachelor’s degree in civil engineering is required for most entry-level jobs, but some research positions may require a graduate degree. in order to keep up with improvements in technology. expected to be good. (NACE spring 2011) REAL WORLD OPPORTUNITIES Co-ops and Internships – These programs offer students numerous opportunities to engage with the broader-based engineering, technology and science community. NATURE OF THE WORK Civil engineers design and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and water supply and sewage systems. They must consider many factors in the design process from the construction costs and expected lifetime of a project to government regulations and potential environmental hazards such as earthquakes and hurricanes. Civil engineering, considered one of the oldest engineering disciplines, encompasses many specialties. The major ones are structural, water resources, construction, transportation, and geotechnical engineering. Many civil engineers hold supervisory or administrative positions, from supervisor of a construction site to city engineer. Others may work in design, construction, research, and teaching. (compiled from U.S. Dept. of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook 2010-2011) USF DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING EXPERTISE Structural Engineering Water Resources Engineering Mechanics Transportation Materials Research Experiences for Undergraduates – The program gives undergraduate students an opportunity to participate. Students work as Research Assistants with professors and graduate students on a variety of exciting and interdisciplinary research projects. Scholarships awarded to USF engineering students totaling and recognizing their exceptional efforts.
