Hi, I am in school majoring in civil engineering. Would it be worth it to practice using solidworks as well as autoCAD? or would that be a waste of time?

Why not look at the job listings wherever you want to work and see what they ask for?
IME speaking with recruiters and hiring managers about entry level positions (in ME) is that they aren't too fused with which package you've used as most skills are transferable.
With that said, learning new skills is never a waste of time, showing your initiative and learning other CAD programs can't hurt.
