As a civil engineer, one constantly deals with land development and redevelopment, such as working on sidewalk improvements, drainage, erosion control and utility connections. Day to day operations involve dealing with Project Teams and coordinating designs. Although this career involves a challenging degree and is not very high-paying, it is a secure profession where there is usually work available. There is a managerial business side to the profession and excellent writing is also a requirement, as proposals and requests for proposals need to be completed in order to finish a job. Although becoming a civil engineer is difficult, it is a respected and secure profession.
Civil engineers design and supervise large construction projects, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment.
Civil engineers who sell their own services publicly must be licensed in all states and the District of Columbia. A license is required to exercise direct control of a project and to supervise other civil engineers, civil engineering technologists, and civil engineering technicians. A degree from an ABET-accredited engineering program is generally required to obtain a license.
