Civil engineers tend to be more educated and technically advanced than other professions.
That means they often get to work on complicated problems that have never been solved before.
But the salary for a civil geologist is higher than that of other engineers, and that can mean it takes a long time to earn a job as a civil service engineer.
“If you’re looking for a career in civil engineering, you need to know where to start and what to expect, but you can also be a careerist,” says Mark Siegel, a senior research scientist at the National Science Foundation and a former civil engineer.
Siegel recommends starting with the salary of a top civil engineer, which ranges from $150,000 to $350,000 per year.
He recommends going with a position that involves building a complex, large or complex system, or building an object that requires a lot of maintenance.
The job requires a degree in electrical engineering and computer science, but civil engineers also need a bachelor’s degree.
If you’re interested in working as a senior civil engineer in the private sector, Siegel says, you can earn anywhere from $130,000, as a contractor or as a public servant, to $400,000.
“It’s important to be aware of the types of jobs you want to be in,” he says.
“When I’m looking at hiring for a new job, I want to make sure I’m selecting people who are very experienced and are able to help me and my team build a product that’s going to be very useful to the country,” he adds.
