Why do civil engineers need master's degrees?
Civil engineering has come a long way since Route 66. Technology, material dynamics, and construction techniques have evolved so much that what was being taught even five years ago has to be refined to meet more exacting standards. Today in civil engineering, a master's level education is expected, because a bachelor's degree alone cannot sufficiently equip civil engineers with the expertise necessary to solve the pressing engineering challenges of the future. Typically, the most advanced projects in organizations go to the engineers with the highest levels of education, training, and experience.
