    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? Also, do I need to be able to drive as an engineer? I have a medical condition that prevents me from being able to drive unfortunately! Thanks!

    Hello, I'm currently a student at a community college majoring in Engineering Science. After I get my Associate I would like to major in Civil Engineering, but I'm kind of wondering if this means that I have to travel a lot. I don't like traveling. So my question is does civil engineers travel a lot?

    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!! :)

    Hi, you said in your interview that you help in the replacement of bridges. Have you ever gotten to construct one? If the answer is yes, can I ask you more questions about it?

    I'm currently an environmental civil engineering student and I find myself struggling with my core classes such as Physics. Does this mean I may be in the wrong career path? Or are there other careers that I could pursue with this degree?

    my dad was a civil engineer. Because of that, I really love civil eng. However, I am really interested in biomedical engineering. I want to go in that career, but I am little afraid because of my english. I am really good at math and physics. I do love science but because of English sometimes I have a really hard time with those subjects. I was wonder if is there any engineer job which dont have to require a lot of communication and writting.
