A day in the life of a civil engineer involves making use of one's design and construction skills and applying them to a physically built or natural environment. Any day in the life of a civil engineer (CE) begins with a plan or strategy on how to accomplish the myriad of tasks at hand. You must also meet with clients, create proposals, and manage projects.
Civil engineers are the people who build the foundations of modern society. They design, build, and maintain the infrastructures of our cities and towns. They are the reason we have running water and working sewage.
I foresee civil engineers solving problems like the national housing crisis, and homelessness. They might solve problems to adapt to potential overpopulation, and many other problems.
People are looking for more civil engineers! The field is a bit small right now and it needs to be expanded! You can find loads of job offers in all 50 states!
While soft skills like leadership and communication are critical to civil engineering, civil engineers also require hard skills, particularly technical skills. They must be skilled in math and physics, as well as map reading, reviewing blueprints, design techniques, and CAD software.
Civil engineers make the world more liveable by building bridges, road, airports, homes, hospitals, parks, tunnels, stadiums and pretty much everything else one can think of! They strive towards building a developed community.
Sustainable construction, safety on construction sites, proper management of groundwater, the monitoring and improvement of poor and degrading infrastructure, etc.
