You are at the turning point of your life. That is choosing a course. You may want to ask yourself “civil engineering is the best course for me.”
Can you pause for a moment and give your full attention?
Try to imagine a full-packed street of Shanghai on a rush hour. Double-decker buses and taxis are whooping like winds. Beside the street are towering skyscrapers and buildings of different businesses.
Inside the towers are busy young accountants with tons of paper works making music through their computer keyboards. Now, try to delete the towers, roads, and bridges. Keep the crowd, the young adults hanging on air and buses whooping on the picture, that is one great loss and a total disaster!
Our lives would never have been this productive and easy without Civil Engineering course. It serves as a factory for Civil Engineers. Well, in order for your enlightened, there are 5 Reasons why I Choose Civil Engineering and why you should too.
Yes, it is one of the toughest courses offered in college. This is the mentality of everybody especially that it is a mathematically inclined course. A cursed course others say! But did you know that it is by far the noblest course there is?
Civil Engineering Produce Professional Engineer
Let me convince you.
Civil engineering produces civil engineers. Civil engineers shelter humanity. Can you imagine humanity without houses?
Those columns, walls, and roof in your homes aren’t just concrete simply cast like a box. It is a carefully planned structure by civil engineers to keep you safe should there be hurricane, earthquake or any unforeseen disaster.
We design and build roads and tunnels used by ambulances during emergencies. Did you know that underneath those roadways are strategically embedded sewerage, drainages and stormwater lines that keep your villages free from the flood? These lines are tapped to their respective drop-off far from people’s homes. Surface runoff from mountains and high elevation areas would have flooded your town if not because of them.
Civil engineering produces engineers who are like Robin Hood. Usually, the public does not know who the engineers are a certain project. Civil engineers work hard behind those high-fenced construction sites.
You may not know how hard it is to strictly enforced safety precautions just to keep the laborers and workers safe and far from possible accidents inside the project site. You may not be aware how difficult it is to push muscle-pained manpower to finish the trades on time just so the building would be functional.
You may not know how tiring it is during concrete pouring at midnight ‘till dawn because, during the daytime, sidewalks are packed with passersby. The work demands are all worth it because civil engineers are also paid generously.
We have to thank the present engineering students who are willing to make their life miserable (for a moment) and sacrifice their sleep to study their lessons. These are teenagers whose fighting spirit are strong enough face the uncertainty of graduating on time.
The profession that works behind the stage to make life a little bit better. Civil engineering students indeed our future heroes. So, why not join us in this 5-years life investment and be paid top-notched in the future?
