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.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Is it hard?
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.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
