Yep, and hated them all. O.k, they were not that bad, just a lot of the same stuff over and over. As for Civil being geared towards bridges, a common misconception. The are a lot of "bridge dreamers", but the ones that actually do it are far and few between. Structural engineers, mechanical engineers, and civil engineers all work together to design bridges...oh and you can't forget the fancy pants architects....LOL
Our field is HUGE and very wide spread. You can cover (depending on your discipline) roads (back roads to major highways), buildings (residential, commercial, industrial, government), dams, and bridges.
But enough thread hijacking.................LOL
