Civil Engineering Scholarships

Civil engineering is one of the most popular of the more than 40 varieties of engineering offered at the bachelor's level. In this field you learn about the science and math behind  large-scale public and private construction. We're talking about bridges, dams, highways and water purification systems. If you like thinking big and thinking about how things work (or if you like thinking about how big things work) this could be the major for you. Continue reading to find out more about this field as well as the world of civil engineering scholarships.

Unlike many academic disciplines, in the field of civil engineering there is little program variation from college to college. There is really only one way to safely build a dam and in this program, you'll learn it. Core courses include dynamics, surveying, material strength, soil mechanics, construction materials, water resources and fluid mechanics. 

Many programs allow you to choose a civil engineering concentration so that your education can line up with your vocational goals. Examples of these concentrations include water resources, transportation engineering, construction or hydrosystems. Your coursework will consist of both lecture and lab courses.

This is an intellectually demanding major that will probably take over your life for the duration of your college studies. It will probably take up all the time you have and some of the time that you don't. In other words, you will not have the free time that your friends in the humanities have. But with great rewards must come some sacrifice. 

The career outlook for civil engineers is slightly better than average. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, civil engineers can expect a 19% increase in employment opportunities over the coming decade. Maintaining our nations infrastructure will contribute to much of this growth. To advance to senior leadership positions you may need a graduate degree in either engineering or business.
