Which college degrees offer you the best chances of finding employment after graduation? If you complete an engineering certificate program, for example, there are a variety of specializations that may appeal to you, such as biomedicine, urban planning, or mechanical engineering. Further, due to advances in technology, there is a growing shortage of graduates from engineering certificate programs, and highly-skilled engineers in general.

Civil engineers design and oversee construction projects and infrastructure systems in both the public and private sectors. Civil engineering programs typically take three to five years, and courses include physics, mathematics, project management, design and specific topics in civil engineering. Materials science is closely related to civil engineering. It studies the fundamental characteristics of materials, and deals with mixtures such as asphalt concrete, strong metals like aluminum and steel, and novel polymers including carbon fiber. Civil engineering technicians assist civil engineers in the development of industrial and municipal infrastructure projects. The annual wage of civil engineers with a bachelors was roughly $82,220 in 2015, while civil engineering technicians with an associates degree ranged closer to $50,000 per year.

The subdiscipline of structural engineering governs construction of buildings, bridges, tunnels, and off-shore structures. This involves identifying the loads which act upon a structure, and the forces and stresses which arise within that structure due to external stresses. How can the structure successfully support and resist those loads? The structural engineer takes into account both material considerations such as strength, stiffness, and stability of the structure, as well as other design considerations including cost, safety and sustainability. Due to the nature of some loading conditions, wind engineering and earthquake engineering have developed as specialties within structural engineering.

Urban Planning Programs

Urban planning covers everything from ensuring water-supply networks, to designing municipal solid-waste management and disposal. In the case of underground utility networks, it also includes maintaining conduits and access of electrical and telecommunications cables. Municipal engineers may also design civil projects including large buildings, industrial plants, or treatment facilities. Transportation engineering focuses on the construction and maintainence of streets, highways, and mass transit systems. Urban planners averaged $80,500 annually in 2015, much higher than in many other occupations.

Surveyors may be called in to lay out the routes of railways, roads, and canals before construction begins. New advances in Global Positioning Systems (GPS) allow high-precision surveys down to the square foot, a greater resolution than was previously available. Although surveying is a distinct profession with separate qualifications and licensing arrangements, civil engineers must be trained in the basics of mapping, as well as geographic information system (GIS).

The Fundamentals of Engineering exam should be taken immediately after earning a bachelors degree from an ABET-accredited program. Engineers who pass this exam are called engineers in training (EIT), or engineer interns. After meeting work experience requirements, engineer interns can attempt a second certifying exam, called the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam. Thereafter, acquisition of a professional engineering license enables management of junior engineers, the ability to sign off on engineering projects, and provide services directly to the public. Wages vary by employer and location. Aside from salary, most engineering jobs include excellent benefits, as well as retirement plans.
