Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering deals with the design, maintenance, and construction of things like bridges, roads, overpasses, dams, canals, skyscrapers, etc.  Civil engineers are extremely crucial for keeping us safe. They research, test, and design the structures to be at the maximum safety level for us.  For instance, with skyscrapers, if you don’t design them right, they will sway in the wind, and be dangerous.  With bridges, if you don’t give them enough support, they can totally start like bouncing up and down almost like waves. If you watch the video down below, you will see what I mean!  To become a Civil Engineer, you have to go to college and earn your Bachelors degree in civil engineering. If you’re interested in becoming an engineer, then you are going to want to take your STEM classes (science, technology, engineering, and math). 

Thanks for reading my essay!
