Civil Engineering Jobs

Civil Engineering Job Overview

Civil engineers design, build, operate, oversee and maintain large construction systems and projects, such as bridges, roads, dams, airports, buildings, tunnels and water supply and sewage systems. Most work full-time indoors in offices, but civil engineers commonly visit construction sites to troubleshoot and supervise operations. Their job duties are similar to those of architects, civil engineering technicians and construction managers.

Examples of tasks assigned to civil engineers include:
  • Analyzing survey and map data with computer software
  • Creating blueprints with computer-aided design (CAD)
  • Assessing the feasibility of projects based on cost, material and time constraints
  • Ensuring projects and sites comply with the law, as well as health and safety standards

Civil Engineering Job Education Requirements

Civil engineers must obtain a bachelor's degree in civil engineering or civil engineering technology. Aspiring civil engineers will study math, fluid dynamics and statistics in their bachelor's education, which combines classroom learning with lab and fieldwork. For senior-level engineering positions, they will need a master's degree. One in five civil engineers has a master's degree. To receive licensure to work as a profession engineer (PE), aspiring engineers will need to attend a program accredited by ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). In many states, a bachelor's degree in civil engineering is enough to secure a license.

Civil Engineering Job Market

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there are currently 272,900 civil engineering jobs, and that number will increase by 53,700 in the next decade. The expected growth rate of the profession is 20 percent, which is faster than the national occupational average. The infrastructure of the United States is aging rapidly, which will increase the demand for civil engineers to fix roads, reconstruct bridges and improve dams and levees. Additionally, the expanding U.S. population will raise demand for water systems and waste treatment plants, both of which require civil engineers.

Civil Engineering Job Salary Information

The highest-earning 10 percent of civil engineers have a median salary of $126,190, while the lowest-earning 10 percent have a median salary of $51,810.
