The following description was taken from the Civil Engineering website

Civil engineers plan, design, supervise construction, manage, and maintain facilities that are familiar to most people. They are involved with infrastructure and environmental projects such as bridges, dams, highways, water and wastewater treatment plants, airports, and flood control systems. Civil engineers increasingly use new technologies such as Geographical Information/Positioning Systems, advanced materials, remote sensing and monitoring in their projects.

Electrical & Computer

The following description was taken from the Electrical and Computer Engineering website

In our modern lives, we rely heavily on the work of electrical and computer engineers. Virtually all aspects of our daily activities are impacted in some way by electrical and electronic systems. Approximately eighty percent of all electrical devices contain at least one microprocessor. Just take a look around your home, school or business and consider how different your day would be without the benefits of electrical devices such as computers, televisions, automobiles, refrigerators and telephones. Electrical and computer engineers are the professionals who design, improve, and apply the electrical devices and systems that we use in our day-to-day lives.

The following description was taken from the Mechanical Engineering website

Mechanical engineers use the principles of mechanics, materials and energy to design machines and processes. Many mechanical engineers work in energy, materials and mechanical design specialties such as biomechanical advanced materials design and application, alternate fuel and hybrid automotive design, building systems, and pollution control processes. Others are involved in improvement of health care delivery, product life design and recycle design, engine design, air quality control, aerospace design and technology development.
