    Career Technology Foundations
  • Introduction
    Bridges, buildings, dams, roads and tunnels are all so big. How could they have once not been there? Who put them there? Where did all of the supplies come from and who came up with the design? It was a civil engineer. I have always been interested in designing things and hopefully this research that I am conducting on this career will further interest me in pursuing it as my own.
    • Use science and math to find economical and efficient solutions to problems
    • Link science to commercial, societal, and consumer needs
    • Use computers to produce designs
    • Supervise the production of
    • Monitor quality of products
    Nature of Work
  • Working Conditions
    • Mental some days
    • Designing the structures
    • Physical some days
    • Building the structures
  • Training and Education
    • Achitecture Design classes I and II
    • Bachelor’s degree required to enter the workforce
    • Graduate degree in engineering to learn new technologies
    • Naturally should be creative, analytical, and detail oriented
  • Job Outlook
    • 278,400 in 2008
    • 345,900 in 2018 (projected)
    • 24% increase over that 10-year span
    • Make up the plurality of engineers at 17.7%
  • Earnings
    • My lifestyle goals are to
    • Have a nice house in a nice location
    • Have 2 or more vehicles
    • Have extra money to save
    • Median wage in 2009 was $76,590
    • This is enough to meet my lifestyle goals
  • Related Occupations
    • Any other kind of engineer such as an architectural engineer
    • Indoor and outdoor, mental and physical
    • Design and build public and private rooms, buildings, or complexes
    • Professional degree, work experience through internship, and a license
    • Projected 16% increase from 2008 to 2018
    • Median annual earnings in 2008 were $70,320
    • I chose this because it is similar to civil engineering because both involve designing and building structures
  • Summary
    While conducting this research about the career of a civil engineer, I have further sparked my interest and want to pursue this as a career. One thing that I look forward to is building the bridges and seeing the finished product and feeling satisfaction. One thing I am
    not looking forward to is the
    building and coordinating of
    all of the materials and
    assuring they all come
