Top Civil Engineering Schools

Civil engineers design things. They often build roads, tunnels and bridges, as well as sewer systems, water ways, and dams. They must consider many factors in their designs, from the costs to making sure the structure will stay intact during bad weather, erosion or earthquakes. This is one of the oldest types of engineering, with military engineering being the oldest.

There are a lot of great engineering schools across the country, but for your undergraduate work, which schools are the best options for you? Us News has ranked a few of the top schools with undergraduate civil engineering programs.

Earning your bachelors degree or master's degree in engineering can get you started in a career that is in demand. There are more than 250,000 civil engineering jobs in this country, with one third employed in some way by the government. More civil engineers will be needed to rebuild and replace buildings and roads as they continue to become old, and worn out. The last 5 years have seen a decline in the number of new engineering degree students, but more and more are needed to fill the gaps left by an aging workforce where many are beginning to retire.
