    Civil engineers plan, design, build, maintain and manage the global civil infrastructure. The civil engineering profession provides a wide variety of enriching career choices that fit different lifestyles. As a civil engineer, you may choose to work for the county office or for a mega city, for public agencies, consulting firms or large corporations, for local companies or multinational firms, in a design office or on a construction site.

    Most civil engineers obtain a professional practice license. Many start their own consulting practice or partner with other civil engineers to provide design services. Best of all, civil engineers contribute to projects that are used by people for decades and sometimes even centuries.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
