My Career LeeAnn Burcham

I am not 100% sure on what career I would like to pursue in my near by future. This is one career I've been thinking about.
Civil Engineer
Civil engineers specialize in road, bridge, buildings and water supply system design and construction. They supervise and direct construction teams and work with other engineers.

Becoming a Civil Engineer

Aspiring civil engineers should complete a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering or a related specialty. However, they should make sure that they only enroll in programs that are ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) certified. This is essential in order to qualify to obtain a license. A bachelor’s degree takes four years to complete. It covers courses like engineering mechanics, mathematics, statistics and fluid dynamics.

Population growth will also trigger the rising need for civil engineers because water systems need to be maintained, repaired or expanded. The nation will require more sewage systems that need these professionals to construct them. Additionally, there will be an increasing demand for green building. This means more civil engineers with experience in this area will be very attractive to employers in the near future.

Being a Civil Engineer comes with sections, such as; water resource, construction, environmental, geotechnical, material, structural, transportation, and urban planning.

Like I said in the beginning this is a career I've been thinking about. There are more careers out there that I am interested in, yet to find the one that I must pursue. Click on the bottom below if you would like to learn more about a Civil Engineer career.
