Civil engineers plan, design and build the structures and systems essential to American civilization: buildings, bridges, tunnels and dams; harbors and airports; waterways, railways and highways; water treatment plants; irrigation and drainage systems; landfills; and wastewater treatment plants. This is one of the few areas of engineering in which the engineer deals directly with the public in every phase of the job.
The Civil Engineering program at The Ohio State University offers a challenging environment designed to provide students with the resources and background necessary to pursue activities in the many different areas of civil engineering. The department’s professors are internationally recognized as leaders in their respective areas.
As environmental concerns mount, the technological revolution expands and we pioneer into space, the demand for civil engineers will rise. They will design, build and maintain the facilities essential to our civilization. This demand will be augmented by the effort to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure, including highways, bridges, water and wastewater treatment plants, and other public buildings.
Employment in various government agencies, the aerospace industry, consulting, engineering marketing or sales, and private industry provides career opportunities, which are many and varied depending upon the type of civil engineering pursued.
Some employers of civil engineering graduates include American Electric Power (AEP), Burgess & Niple, Corna Kokosing Construction Co., Grunley Construction, Kiewit Corp., Marathon Petroleum Corp., Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), Ohio EPA, Turner Construction Co., U.S. Navy, and Woda Group.
