By 2025, the civil engineering market size is likely to reach $11.72 trillion. In 2015, global governmental spend alone was $4 trillion – that excludes private spending.
Growth is driven by various factors but follows regional trends. In Europe, for example, civil engineering revolves around a push towards green living and increased safety codes for all structures.
In China, and similarly developing Asian states, a push towards increased social infrastructure ensures continued developments. The same can be said for South American countries.
Infrastructure in the United States is one of the few areas which enjoys bipartisan support. This explains the forecasted eight percent job growth for civil engineers in the US between 2014 and 2024. Though this is roughly on par with average increases, the number of civil engineers currently in the field suggests that well over 23,000 jobs will be created over this period.
While it is possible to begin civil engineering work in the US with just a bachelor’s degree, an advanced degree is quickly becoming the base level for promotions to management positions and licensure which is required for many positions in all 50 states.
Across all positions and level of education, the 2016 median pay for civil engineers in the US was $83,540 annually, the highest average salary in the field sits around $130,000.
