On average, civil engineers in the U.S. make around $95,490/year, with some top earners in the field making as much as $174,550/year – and for good reason! Civil engineers design, build, and maintain the foundation for our modern society – our buildings, sports arenas and concert halls, roads and bridges, seaports and airports, and the infrastructure for a cleaner environment, to name just a few. Some of the most impressive engineering feats of today – the Golden Gate Bridge, Hoover Dam, Eiffel Tower, etc. – would not have been possible without the expertise of civil engineers. What better place to explore your interest in this field than with Summer Springboard on the beautiful campus of UCSD – home to the Englekirk Structural Engineering Center and Charles Lee Powell Laboratories. Combined, they have the largest outdoor shake table in the world, the country’s largest soil foundation-structure Interaction Facility, and one of the largest assemblies of reaction-wall/strong floor systems in the world. In our course, students will be exposed to the field of civil engineering, learn about the various specializations found within, hear from professionals in the field, engage in hands-on activities, and more.
Topics you'll explore
The course includes a review of the subdisciplines within Civil Engineering including: structural, construction, geotechnical, transportation and more. There will be hands-on building and testing in the classroom to verify and assess uncertainties of the theory used in practice along with presentations and computer simulations to further explore the oldest branch of engineering.
Possible course excursions include tours of UCSD's Englekirk Structural Engineering Center, Charles Lee Powell Laboratory, area civil engineering firms, and/or other off-site civil engineering labs, projects, and sites.
