And becoming an Army engineer will put you among the ranks of the prestigious U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the world's largest public engineering, design, and construction management agency. Engineering positions include planning, designing, and operation of dams and flood protection systems; design of military facilities; and environmental regulation and ecosystem restoration. Army engineers may be involved in war fighting efforts, homeland security, infrastructure support, water resources, and environmental missions.
Becoming an Army engineer requires a degree in engineering, as well as practical training and experience. If you are already enrolled in college and plan to major in an engineering field, talk to an Army recruiter about which specific engineering disciplines may be best suited to your Army engineering career goals.
