  2. 2. Introduction<br />Bridges, buildings, dams, roads and tunnels are all so big. How could they have once not been there? Who put them there? Where did all of the supplies come from and who came up with the design? It was a civil engineer. I have always been interested in designing things and hopefully this research that I am conducting on this career will further interest me in pursuing it as my own.<br />

  27. 27. I chose this because it is similar to civil engineering because both involve designing and building structures</li></li></ul><li>Summary<br />While conducting this research about the career of a civil engineer, I have further sparked my interest and want to pursue this as a career. One thing that I look forward to is building the bridges and seeing the finished product and feeling satisfaction. One thing I am<br />not looking forward to is the<br />building and coordinating of<br />all of the materials and<br />assuring they all come<br />together<br />
