Question by RA: how are the job prospects for civil engineers?
I am about to choose my undergrad subject in engineering. I can go for civil engineering or regional and urban development engineering. Which one would be better in terms of job prospects? I’m looking for feedback from engineers in that field, information about job prospects, wages, etc etc. Please? Thankyou

The outlook is good.There is always going to be a demand for engineers because the world is constantly changing. New technology in one area makes people want new technology in others. Civil engineers are expected to experience 18 percent employment growth. There will be a demand in both those areas with no specific big deviation from jbo growth in either.

This is a good website to look at for not only civil engineering but many other disciplines.

    Well, let’s see.

    Two years ago, a bridge collapsed in Minneapolis due stress-related failure of gusset plates.

    This week, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge has been closed for several days due to failure of structural elements (that were replaced over the Labor Day weekend.)

    The Champlain Bridge between upstate New York and Vermont was closed two weeks ago after it was recognized that the piers supporting the bridge were constructed of unreinforced concrete and had deteriorated to the point where failure was immanent. It is not clear if repairs are possible, and it could take several years to replace this bridge, the only link between northern New York and Vermont that is usable in the winter.

    Oh, and there are two other critical bridges in upstate New York that have been determined to be at the point of failure. One is scheduled for replacement next year, while the politicians are still trying to decide what to do about the other. And in these instances, the bridges are key links in both fire and medical emergency care strategies.

    So it seems to me that with our infrastructure collapsing around us, and the politicians sitting around with their thumbs up their butts trying to find prospects for civil engineers has to be reasonably secure.
