From A Civil Engineer To Management

A recent survey (2006 – 2007) done by Service Canada reported 48% of graduates who studied Civil Engineering in university, went on to find successful employment as civil, mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineers. This program covers structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydraulic engineering, transportation engineering, and environment engineering.

For graduates with a Civil Engineering diploma, furthering their education with an MBA may or may not be necessary. An MBA will completely round out the educational framework, giving the graduate the necessary skills to understand and manage key concepts related to human resources, finances, business law, etc. An individual striving toward an MBA is most likely looking for a top management position where he/she can be actively involved with industry related decision making, analysis, marketing, research, etc.

In Canada, career prospects continue to look good from 2007 through to 2009, with average wages around $35/hour. Hourly rates can differ considerably based on experience, training, and whether you're working for the private or public sector.

In the United States, the national average wage for individuals in this sector (again, depending on private or public employment) comes in at $52.90/hour.
