Civil Engineers are entrusted by society to create a sustainable future and enhance the quality of life for individuals and communities as planners, designers, contractors, and operators of one of society’s economic and social engines—the built environment. They serve as stewards of the natural environment and its resources, as innovators and integrators of ideas and technology across public and private sectors, and as leaders in discussions and decisions shaping public, environmental, and infrastructure policy.
