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.

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).
