Advancement Prospects

Engineers usually start as associates and advance to become managers or directors. With a few years of successful project management experience, they can move up to regional management positions—overseeing more projects and staff at various work sites. They may also advance by honing skills in specific areas of engineering and becoming technical specialists. They can also start their own consulting firms, teach at universities, and mentor and coach less-experienced engineers and students.
