Careers

What Can I Do with a Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering?

Society’s demand for essentials such as clean water and sustainable infrastructure pose large-scale, practical problems. Civil engineers design and operate facilities such as bridges, highway systems, waterworks, dams/levees and foundations. Learn to be part of the solution to some of society’s greatest challenges when you study civil engineering at the graduate level at NAU. This program leads to exciting careers in the public or private sectors where you can make a difference.

With further education, one of these paths is possible:
  • Researcher
  • Sustainability engineer
  • Engineering consultant
  • Community college instructor
