What engineering major would be most like Civil Engineering?
I'm in my freshman (first semester) year at college right now and I want to transfer from the school I'm in in the Spring 2006 semester.. I live in Long Island, and I want to go to an engineeering school in the city.
Right now, I am not majoring in Civil Engineering because my school does not offer that. I'm majoring in Physics instead. The problem is that the only schools in the city that offer Civil Engineeering (or Environmental Engineering, for that matter) are Columbia, Cooper Union, CUNY City College, Manhattan, and Polytechnic University. Columbia is an Ivy League (way out of my league right now), Cooper only takes Fall transfer students, Manhattan is Roman Catholic (I'm Presbyterian, and my family is strictly against Roman Catholics), Polytechnic only accepts 24 credits or more, and I wouldn't want to go to a CUNY college right now.
I was wondering what engineering major would be most like Civil Engineering (what major offers similar classes to it, etc), such that I can have an as smooth as possible transfer into a school that actually offers Civil Engineering in the fall. I was thinking of Mechanical, which alot more schools offer, but I would love your opinions. Thank you.
