Biography
I graduated with my Civil Engineering degree from Colorado State University in 2003. I worked in Colorado, then Texas and now I am back in Colorado. I focus on Stormwater Engineering. What does this mean? This means I analyze runoff generated from rain or snow. Where does it go? And how does that impact people? I enjoy studying rivers, to determine what will flood and what will stay dry in big storm events. I get to study things that may happen as well as review projects and develop policy that will prevent damage to streams, property and loss of life. I LOVE what I do and it allows me to do other fun things in life like run, travel (I have even gone to the Olympics!!!), snowboard, hike, camp, fish and spend time with my family. To me that was all I ever wanted, to enjoy my job and get in a field that allows me to enjoy life.

    Morgan, I am a senior in civil engineering at Michigan State University. I am currently trying to decide if I should switch my major from CE to Environmental Engineering. I've read some of your other posts and was wondering if I could have a bit more insight - I am not particularly interested in the structural side of this major, and have had two internships with the transportation side now. One for the state, the other for a contractor. I am glad to have had these experiences as they've ...

    I am stuck between choosing to get my bachelor's in Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering. So I will tell you my vision: I want to work with water resources (it can be any kind from waste water management to storm water management). Many of my peers have told me to get into Environmental Engineering when I told them my goals. However, I am discouraged of how many job openings there are for environmental engineers. Which is why I am leaning towards Civil Engineering with a "focus" on ...

    Waste water and storm water are two very different things, so you may want to shadow a few engineers or get an internship where you can be exposed to both. But to your question, when I was in college, my adviser told me that "civil engineers ...
