It could be very hard at the start especially for those who do not have Engineering Background, but when you get use to it, you will find the funny part of taking this program. The CEE program provided by CMU is actually different from the common civil engineering. They emphasize the maintenance and monitoring here (associating with BIM) which I believe representing the future of this industry.

The college is great, but for this program, for this major, it's just difficult to find a good job after graduate. The college is not large in area, but the surroundings are safe and convenient to live.

I think it is pretty wonderful because it really make me learn something useful. Although sometimes it seems that we are overloaded, we finally find out that we truly get something.
