Civil Engineer Career
Civil engineers are responsible for designing, supervising, and managing large-scale construction projects that improve or create infrastructure. This includes projects such as building dams, tunnels, and bridges or systems for water filtration and circulation. Civil engineers need to be analytical thinkers and able to use software to design and present plans.
The vast majority (64%) of civil engineers work in engineering services while the remainder will typically work for some level of government from local to federal. It is possible for a civil engineer to start their own company or work for a small firm with a few other lead engineers.
