Had a bunch of roommates, and now a cousin, who did CE. It is hard.
It's not hard like bio where there are a ton of wannabe doctors so the competition is insane. The material is mentally tough to memorize and understand.
However, if you're interested, do it. Don't let it being hard discourage you. The easy majors are easy for a reason. They don't lead to good job opportunities because everyone knows they're a dime a dozen.
I assume you mean course of study.
Civil Engineering is a course of study, a college of engineering. I studied CE at The University of Florida.
CE IS a hard major, although some other engineering majors will scoff at it, and say theirs is harder, which in come cases is true. However, when you look at the course load, it is no joke.
Bases are: Chemistry, Physics, Calculus, Materials, Higher order maths, and then statics and dynamics, and lots of other hard classes.
I loved it, but I would say it was tough. However, it was manageable, so I say go for it!
All engineering majors are difficult compared to other majors. If you look at the pay as an indicator of how diffucult the major is, then it would go something like Nuclear, Aero, Electrical, Chem, Mechanical, Civil (there are other disciplines that I can't remember as of now).
Also, is a civil engineer, you will need to be outside most of the time inspecting and designing stuff. I interned for the department of transportation one year and I followed a few civil engineers around in 100 degree weathers. I don't know if all civil engineers need to be outside like that, but its pretty rough.
