Go for Mechanical or electrical engineering. Most people who have civil engineering degrees wind up being code enforcement flunkies. There are only so many tax payer funded projects to go around if my assumption is that you want to build dams and stuff like that.
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

My brother has a degree in this. The first two years were horrific, and though the math classes in his last two years were insanely difficult (the matrices... *shudder*) he enjoyed it more.

What should I expect?
A huge amount of math and physics. An underclassman experience which is designed to winnow the wheat from the chaff.

Will I earn lots of $$$?
He does, working for a private development company.
