Construction engineers are key cogs to successfully completing a construction project. The projects that they work on might include designing a drainage and sewage system, constructing a building or developing railroads or roadways. Construction engineers often focus on a specific type of construction project. Some of these specialties are:

CAD
Building Trades - commercial housing or business building
Electric Power & Distribution - electrical systems
HVAC/Mechanical - plumbing, heating or air conditioning
Highway or Heavy - bridges, airports, highways or water waste
Facilities Maintenance

Construction engineers often use computers when producing and analyzing their designs for a project. Their job requires being able to put together a good team to complete a project. Construction engineers need to possess the proper knowledge of estimating, planning and controlling the costs associated with construction projects. They may have an engineering degree and some construction work experience, or they may obtain a bachelor's degree in construction engineering.

Construction engineers do a lot of their work from offices. They also work on location at job sites to visually inspect the work being performed. They usually work 40-hour weeks; however, some jobs require more time based on deadlines or design issues.
