Civil and Environmental Engineering Q's

  1. Jan 23, 2007 #1
    I'm 19 and I feel I have a good grasp of Physics & Mathematics. I also did very well in Chemistry. I like to tutor/help out a lot and I feel that my advice is somewhat useful :p (hopefully).

    I was looking into either Architecture or Civil & Environmental Engineering. I feel Civil & Environmental Engineering will be my key really. Though, I have a weird feeling that it's very difficult to get into.

    Any civil engineers out there? How are the jobs in terms of finding them? I'm a bit afraid coming out of college and finding a decent job to pay off the debt.

    My goal is really to develop and design homes that are natural disaster resistant? If that makes sense. I'm from Asia heh. As you know, Asia is rattled with typhoons, earthquakes and tsunamis. Some pretty crazy natural disasters heh and it's constant.

    I know civil engineering is a pretty broad field. Though, I don't know where my skills would help me the most. I really enjoy Physics; specifically forces and energy.

    I'm not sure if it's the right thing for me. And what field to really get into to specialize. Also, not sure how it goes after getting a B.A. Will that be enough to get a decent job? Or should I pursue a Masters/PhD?

    I'm not sure how to go about it. More than anything, I need to make money now =p. Get some debt off my list and also help my parents out & family in Asia.
