Build the future you want with civil or mechanical engineering

Civil engineers help create the built environment with the design, construction and maintenance of key infrastructure projects such as roads, bridges, and railways, airports, water and sewage systems, and public buildings. Mechanical engineers design, manufacture, and use machinery in a range of industrial settings.
