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.

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.
