    Hi! I'm considering becoming a civil engineer, but I have two questions: as an engineer, do you have to get your hands grubby on-site? I'm more interested in the office and design aspect of engineering, would I be able to stick to that or will I be required to get a bit messy on-site?

    Once you become a civil engineer, do you have time to be a normal wife and mother? In forums I have noticed some engineers discussing how long hours keep them from important family life. Is this in issue in any of your circumstances? Thank you in advance!! :)
