Career Opportunities

The demand for civil engineers has been consistently high, in the Middle East and the Gulf region, during the last decade. Engineers have been involved primarily in large public and private development projects. The emerging reconstruction activity in Lebanon and the Gulf offers ever increasing and expanding opportunities for civil engineers for even decades to come. Graduating civil engineers are benefiting from very stimulating work experiences in the region, many of which are related to mega projects in the building and infrastructure sectors; this has resulted in a booming job market and in highly competitive salaries for civil engineers. Potential senior students are on high demand for recruitment by leading engineering companies for practical training, prior to their graduation, and eventually hired as practicing engineers.

The civil engineering graduate can generally work either in the private sector or in government agencies. Civil engineers attain a broad spectrum of skills sought by almost every profession. The fields of work applied to civil engineering are in form of design and consultation, contracting and supervision, or management and quality control. Being interrelated, it is not unusual that these fields are combined during the performance of a project. The civil engineer can work as an employee, partner, or owner in consulting design offices (local or regional) in the departments of structures, transportation and planning, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, water resources, and computer software, and in contracting firms and construction management consultant offices.

Career Opportunities

Electrical power engineers are involved in a wide variety of technology ranging from huge global positioning systems that can pinpoint the location of a moving vehicle to gigantic electrical power generators. These engineers are responsible for designing, developing, testing as well supervising the production of electrical and electronic equipment and machinery. Electric motors, controls of machinery, lights and wiring in building complexes, vehicles, aircrafts, power generations, control and transmission devices used by electric utilities are all examples of equipment built by these engineers. Electrical power engineers may choose to specialize in various areas like power generation, transmission and distribution, manufacture of electrical equipment or one particular specialty within these areas. These engineers are involved in designing new products, writing requirements for their performance, as well as developing maintenance schedules and charts. Testing equipment and machinery, solving operations problems, estimating time and cost of electrical and electronic products also come under their job.
