Civil Engineering practices and salary

Aside from Military Engineering, Civil Engineering is the oldest form of engineering there is.  Civil Engineering is concerned with the design and  construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment.  We mostly think of Civil Engineering in connection with structures such as buildings, bridges, roads, railways, canals and dams.

Sub-disciplines of Civil Engineering

include Structural Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Surveying, Urban Engineering, Constuction engineering, among others.  civil Engineers are often employed at construction sites, but they are needed everywhere where changes to the physical environment are planned and the demand for Civil Engineers is slated to grow in the next decades as the population grows and new structures are needed as well as old structures needing to be repaired.  Stimulus money from the US Government be beginning to flow into states and municipalities to improve infrastructure and with it, jobs for civil engineers.

Median Salary Civil Engineers

The Bureau of labor Statistics documented the median salary in 2008 for Civil Engineers at $78,560 and this number is expected to increase.

Civil Engineers work both on site, surveying and examining construction sites and also in offices creating plans and documents using tools such as AUToCAD.
