Incorporating Civil Engineering into Advertising Design

Hi, I'm going to take Civil Engineering as my second degree course & third overall (I have BS Commerce & Certificate in Animation & Computer Graphics) since I have long been interested in the design & maintenance of roads, bridges, dams, airports, buildings etc. At the same time I have a creative talent, I currently work in advertising & I still love my job as a Designer especially that my work is very versatile, from simple logo design to doing animation, web design & industrial design. I'm also running my own design business.

Now my main concern is that I've been thinking to create a link between engineering & my current career in graphic design/ media & to incorporate engineering elements in advertising design. I want to know if that is possible & so please give me some advice on this one. Thanks.

Yes, I think there are some very interesting aspects you can employ by combining both of these degrees-especially in the new 3D and 4D graphic areas of design and virtual reality in building buildings and design.  Just a thought, but I think it is an interesting mix and probably some interesting things you could pursue-Go For it and be Creative!!
