Civil Engineer Job Outlook
Employment of civil engineers is projected to grow 11 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. This equates to about 32,000 new civil engineer positions during this time span. As current U.S. infrastructure experiences growing obsolescence, civil engineers will be needed to manage projects to rebuild, repair, and upgrade bridges, roads, levees, dams, airports, buildings, and other structures.
The work of civil engineers will be needed for renewable-energy projects. Thus, as these new projects gain approval, civil engineers will be further involved in overseeing the construction of structures such as wind farms and solar arrays.
