Civil Engineers address the essential infrastructure needs of our modern society by providing dams, bridges, roads, buildings and much more. When there's a humanitarian crisis, civil engineers are needed to provide shelter, transport infrastructure, sanitation and clean water.
In the next five to ten years, the demand for engineers is predicted to outstrip supply. A degree in Civil Engineering can lead to jobs in a wide range of industries, from mining and construction to sustainable energy and aid work. What’s more, the average salary for an engineer under 25 is $58,000 - $10,000 more than the average graduate.
