Perhaps the biggest reason women engineers are discouraged from the construction area is that it is still very much a man's world. A profile is presented of Celia Ruiz Tomlinson, who became the first female field engineer and inspector in New Mexico in 1977. Advice is offered on how women engineers can develop a career in civil engineering, including developing strong communications skills, perserverance, field experience, and competitiveness.
