CMU/CU-Boulder Civil Engineering Partnership Program
Civil engineers design and supervise the construction of the buildings and infrastructure that make up our world - roads, bridges, tunnels, skyscrapers, transit systems, water treatment facilities, and offshore structures. They solve problems and meet challenges such as pollution, clean drinking water, climate change, energy and transportation needs, urban development, and community planning.
As a civil engineer, you could help to build a school that could withstand an earthquake, a road system that puts an end to chronic traffic jams or a sports stadium that offers everyone a great view. You could also work on geotechnical field design projects and evaluate the soils, ground water, and environmental conditions that impact construction. Civil engineers have made possible some of most spectacular and high-profile of all engineering feats, including the world's tallest building, Taipei 101 in Asia, and the 31-mile Chunnel that runs beneath the English Channel.
