Biography
I am a Civil Engineer and graduated 4years ago from Rochester Institute of Technology. Since I was a kid knew that I wanted to be an engineer. I was always the only girl in my technology classes who actually found things interesting and fun. I definitely had some people tell me that I couldn't do it but that just made me want to even more!I couldn't be happier with the choices I made to get where I am today!

    I have done a lot of research and it seems like I could do a fairly similar job (only it seems like with much less designing :( ) with more job security. I was wondering how true this is and if it is possible to have flexible hours as a Civil Engineer. Thankyou so much!!!

    Hello! I am wondering what other helpful master degrees do civil engineers have besides the traditional masters in civil engineering and MBAs? Especially those in the fields of transportation, structural, and geotechnical, since those are what I'm interested in. I'm thinking about a master's in architecture to understand the design viewpoint of architects regarding infrastructures. Or perhaps a specialization in civil engineering for my master's. Thank you! Theresa

    Hi! I'm a junior in high school looking to become an environmental engineer, but I'm having troubling deciding on a major. The college that I want to go to doesn't have and environmental or civil engineering option, but it does offer civil engineering technology and I'm not sure exactly what that is? There's also a mechanical engineering option with a focus in energy and environment so I'm not sure which one is better suited for me or what the difference between the two actually is? Thank you!
