I have a master degree in Civil engineering, and I have zero coding or data analyze experience. I want to switch career to IT for the big money, what type of bootcamp will suit me? which direction should I go? I have read a little about full stack engineer and big data engineer, will they fits me, or would there be something else?

There is only one way to find out! Try out some courses online... Some people are more suited to data and some people are more suited to the software side of things - it is a personal preference. Without testing and trying things out - you will not be able to find out. We recommend starting with free online courses such as Coursera and moving slowly to paid ones like thinkful/bloc. Then finalize your career move with a fulltime bootcamp!
I never suggest making a career move solely for the money. If you don't get enjoyment from what you are doing every day, you will never be paid enough.
Bootcamps are good at giving you some specialized skills, but it's best if you already have the fundamentals under your belt. They are generally too fast paced to spend time on key principles of computer science. If you are serious about attending a bootcamp, make sure to put in some time before the start date. And as it was already suggested, take some time to explore the possible directions a software engineering education could take you. You don't to invest a lot of money and time into a program only to realize it's not the direction you want to take.
If you need some structure to gain the fundamentals and foundations, look into longer programs. They exist. I attended on in SF called Holberton. Being two years long, it has the ability to implement fundamentals through project based learning.
