What Qualifications Does an Entry-Level Civil Engineer Need?

An entry-level civil engineer needs to have a number of qualifications to work in the industry. You should have a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering or a closely related subject. You can also enroll in a 3+2 program, spending the first three years as an undergraduate and the final two getting a master’s degree. Licensing and certification vary by state, but there are several professional organizations that confer licenses to engineers. Internships during college are a good way to improve job opportunities while learning the responsibilities of a full-time engineer.

What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?

To help candidates find their perfect job at their desired pay rate, ZipRecruiter estimates the compensation range for job listings where the employer does not state a pay range.

ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimates are not verified by the employer posting the job, and the actual compensation range for an advertised position may vary, perhaps considerably, from the estimated range.
