Civil Engineer Employment

 

Civil engineers held about 262,800 jobs in 2010. Civil engineers generally work indoors in offices. However, they sometimes spend time outdoors at construction sites so they can monitor operations or solve problems at the site. Occasionally, civil engineers travel abroad to work on large engineering projects in other countries.

Nearly all civil engineers work full time. However, many civil engineers work on projects that are under contractual deadlines. Engineers overseeing these projects often work longer hours to make sure that deadlines are met.

Industries employing the largest number of civil engineers in 2010 were as follows:

Architectural, engineering, and related services 48%
State government 13%
Local government 11%
Nonresidential building construction 5%
Federal government 5%
