With its long history, civil engineering is associated with many famous landmarks and monuments, and stories of those who built them. Modern civil engineering development is marked by key milestones and the efforts of pioneers. Chapter 1 gives an account of the landmarks and milestones of civil engineering and the human story behind them. Engineering Ethics is a required subject according to ABET, yet it is often difficult to include in other civil engineering courses. A treatment of the subject and a discussion on student ethics regarding academic honesty and student behavior in and out of classrooms are given in Chapter 2. After the BSCE degree, there are many career paths open to the degree holder. A typical path is to work as a civil engineer. Some high-profile private companies and public agencies who hire civil engineers are described in Chapter 3. Opportunities for advanced studies in civil engineering are also described, as well as opportunities outside of the civil engineering profession. The PE (Principle and Practice of Engineering) exam, the final step before obtaining a professional engineer license, is described in some detail.

In this paper, the authors develop an analytical framework referred to as "Becoming an Engineer" that focuses upon changes occurring over time as students traverse their undergraduate educations in engineering. This paper discusses three conceptual dimensions used to follow the engineering students' educational pathways: the development of "accountable disciplinary knowledge" (ADK); forming an "identity" as an engineer; and "navigating" through engineering education. The case studies described in this paper demonstrate how the differences in students' ways of navigating their educational experiences can be consequential. In general, the two issues that these cases and others in this study raise are the importance of mentors or sponsors who provide images of futures and the ways students get to those futures that are fully legitimate but do not appear in the official student guidebooks or in the recommendations of official advisors.

Thanks to their education, experience, and general philosophical orientation, many engineers fail to notice critical issues in the workplace that can directly impact their career advancement and day-to-day job satisfaction. This text focuses on career management, and the accompanying importance of human and social interactions in the office. Although framed in the engineering environment, it provides observations on people skills relevant to all occupations. Using an informal, yet professional style, the author takes a mentorship approach by offering suggestions and anecdotes devoid of lecturing. Broken Into Two Distinct Parts Part I specifically addresses the life and career advancement of the engineer, beginning with school student and advancing to the seasoned professional. Along the way, it explores various stops, diversions, and alternatives, including a view of the corporation as a living organism with its own unique personality that responds to stimuli of the world. Part II discusses engineering projects, product development, schedules, budgets, and related topics. This portion of the book is not about project management, but rather the interaction of engineers and managers working on projects in a corporate environment.

The text addresses the impact of globalization within engineering, particularly on working practices and prospects for creativity. It suggests that accepted norms of economic activity create enclosures and thresholds within the profession, which â€“ as engineers increase their awareness (reflexivity) â€“ will shape the future of engineering, and the values which underpin it. It is aimed at practicing engineers and those in training and is an introduction to the social and political context currently setting new challenges for the profession.

Civil engineer Samuel C. Florman's The Civilized Engineer is aimed at both those observing and commenting externally on engineering, and the practicing engineer—to reveal something of the art behind great engineering achievements, and to stimulate debate upon the author's hypothesis that "in its moment of ascendance, engineering is faced with the trivialization of its purpose and the debasement of its practice."
