The United States is not alone in its civil engineering renaissance, according to a new report by the nonprofit Institute for Civil Engineers.
The group found that the U.S. is one of the top five nations in terms of its overall number of civil engineers per 1,000 people.
The U.K., Italy, France and the Netherlands are also among the top ten.
The institute also found that India, which has a population of 1.25 billion, is one-third as large as the U, the highest proportion of engineers per capita in the world.
The report also notes that China is the largest in the global civil engineering pie, with an average of 9 civil engineers for every 1,066 people.
A more recent report by IDC, however, has found that China, the country with the largest number of engineers in the United States, has the world’s highest share of the workforce that is employed in non-traditional occupations.
That finding is backed up by the report, “The Future of Civil Engineers,” which found that engineers are being hired in a variety of occupations, and are working in occupations where there is an abundance of workers with a high skill set.
The jobs that engineers have historically been employed in are in industries where the demand for skilled engineers has increased and where a growing number of young engineers have emerged.
This is happening even as some industries have shifted away from the traditional fields of engineering, including manufacturing and construction.
In addition to the U., the report notes that countries like China, India, Mexico and Brazil are leading the way.
“We have witnessed an exponential increase in the number of new jobs in the U and globally, and the growth of this job market is projected to accelerate even further,” said Robert Zucman, the institute’s president.
“The future of civil engineering in the 21st century is bright and growing, but we must be careful to keep our eye on the ball.”
