    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'm really interested to go for environmental engineering but the colleges in my place don't offer the course and my parents are not willing to send me abroad for my under graduation, though they will for my post graduation.So what courses should I take in my undergrad in order to go for environmental engineering? moreover what courses should I take in my post grad to finally be environmental engineer?

    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 ...

    Hey I am currently majoring in civil engineering. My original plan was to get my masters in urban planning but I was doing some research and I was wondering is it possible to work at a firm with urban planning without getting the degree ? Do you have any suggestions on what I should do ? Thanks in advance .

    Alex-
    
    I have limited experience with Urban Planners, but all the ones I have worked with do have a degree in Urban Planning.  If that is where you want to take your career, I would highly advise that you pursue your masters.  If you are not sure, you ...

    Hi Morgan, I am a recent college graduate with a degree in Business Economics and am looking into Environmental Engineering for a potential career change. I know you are a Civil Engineer, but found you via a question you answered about Environmental engineering. I've already started classes so that I can continue my studies and eventually pursue a Master's in Engineering (Or potentially a second bachelors then a masters). Currently, I'm torn between civil, environmental and mechanical. I ...

I am so lost and have absolutely no clue what to do next and I definitely need a job . Is ...

    I'm a graduating student doing an engineering internship. I am at the main office but doing nothing but paper work: photo copying, organizing purchase requests, anything that involves paper work! Can you please give me advice? Should I leave this company or not? Thank you.

    My first internship I spent the summer organizing old project photos. Don't get discouraged! Try to learn as much as you can from the conversations that you hear around you. Also, ask! If there is a meeting or a project you want to be a part of, ask ...

    Hi, I'm currently just starting on the path to become an engineer but am very lost as to which specialization to choose. I'm torn between Industrial and Civil/Environmental and would honestly do both if I could! Industrial appeals to me because of the variety of opportunities and work environments. I always look around me and think of how something could be designed or done better.The downside for me is that is is somewhat more business oriented. On the other hand, I feel very strongly ...
