This is the second in a series of podcasts that focuses on providing insights about the different types of engineering to help young adults determine whether engineering is right for them.

American Structurepoint Vice President Shawn Goodwin shares insights about the projects civil engineers often tackle. He provides excellent insights for people considering a civil engineering career, such as qualifications needed, what to expect when entering the field, career paths for civil engineers, and more.

“Civil engineers get to see a project from an initial concept all the way through construction, which is a really cool thing to see,” Vice President Shawn Goodwin

Civil engineering touches on many different engineering disciplines like transportation, utility infrastructure, and planning. Civil engineers often work hand in hand with developers and local officials to bring new businesses and development to a community.

“Civil engineers get to see a project from an initial concept all the way through construction, which is a really cool thing to see,” Goodwin said.
