As the population of the country's cities and towns grows, the need increases for additional highways, buildings, tunnels, bridges and water supply and sewage systems. The individuals who help build these systems are civil engineers, a specialized group of professionals called on to be involved with the design and construction of the infrastructure of the nation. More of these professionals are needed now and into the future.
Civil engineering technicians work for construction, engineering and architectural firms and are often employed by state, city and federal government agencies, cartography agencies and various private petroleum and mining operations. Employment of civil engineering technicians is expected to increase 10 to 20 percent now through 2010, with even greater employment prospects projected in Michigan.
