Civil Engineers

Advancement Prospects

Civil engineers require both a license and experience to advance to a management position. Professional engineers with many years' experience often join with partners to establish their own firms in design, consulting, or contracting. Some leave long-held positions to work as top executives in industries such as manufacturing and business consulting. Also, some engineers return to academia to teach high school or college students. For all of these potential opportunities, it is necessary to keep abreast of engineering advancements and trends by reading industry journals and taking courses, many of which are offered online.
