Life After CBU

A civil engineering degree offers a wide choice of career opportunities. Civil engineers are trained to solve a wide-variety of problems, which makes them desirable to employers in a wide range of professions. Governmental agencies, consulting firms, and large corporations hire civil engineers. The problem solving skills learned by the civil engineering student provide an excellent background for medical school and law school as well as advanced degrees in civil engineering and business administration.

The national average starting salary for CE graduates is comparable with the other engineering disciplines. The American Society of Civil Engineers projects an unlimited demand for CE graduates due to the aging CE workforce. The world’s infrastructure is continually being re-built.
