As environmental concerns mount, the technological revolution expands, and we pioneer into space, the demand for civil, environmental and geodetic engineers will rise. They will design, build, and maintain the facilities essential to everyday life. 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 engineering pursued.
Salaries are competitive with all other engineering areas. Job growth in civil, environmental and geodetic engineering is expected to be strong over the next decade, especially with the current national interest in infrastructure and the environment.
Civil engineering is a diverse field. In fact, it is one of the oldest engineering disciplines, and is the third oldest academic program at Ohio State.
- Students study topics ranging from fluid mechanics to structural analysis to reinforced concrete design and beyond.
- Civil engineering graduates find jobs in an equally diverse market; some work closely with other engineering disciplines.
Civil engineers design, build, and maintain the foundation of our society. They work on bridges,roadways, drinking water and energy systems, airplort planning and design, infrastructure and much more.
The Bachelor of Science in environmental engineering degree at Ohio State will train the next generation of environmental engineering professionals for the state of Ohio and beyond. These Buckeye engineers will advocate for environmentally-responsible development and and will serve as leaders in the creation and application of new environmental technologies.
- Students study topics ranging from ecological engineering to arir pollution to sustainability.
- Environmental engineering graduates find jobs in an equally diverse market; some work closely with other engineering disciplines, while others may work in public health, storm or waster water treatment, air pollution or other fields.
Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to enviromental problems. They work to imprive waste disposal and recycling, public health, water and air pollution, and much more.
