Civil engineering is vital to the growth of the country and the well-being of its citizens. Civil engineers are problem solvers and are called upon to develop solutionsfor society’s toughest challenges. The diverse and well-rounded education offered in the Civil Engineering program at Lawrence Tech provides students with the ability to contribute their creativityand expertise to deal with these challenges.
After you earn your civil engineering degree, the possibilities are endless! Maybe you will:
* Design and construct the next generation of highperformance, sustainable buildings.
* Design and construct a bridge spanning an international waterway, allowing travelers and goods to traverse safely and efficiently.
* Design and construct atreatment plant that provides water to regions where safe drinking water is scarce.
