Columbus Civil Engineering Jobs Overview
Civil engineering jobs touch everything we see and do. By lunchtime today, civil engineers made your life easier in several ways: They designed and managed the construction of the roads you drove to work and the office building you're sitting in. They made it easy for you to get clean drinking water for your coffee and devised an easy way to get across the river on your way home.
Civil engineers work on five areas of infrastructure that affect our lives: structures, water resources, transportation, construction, and geotechnics. Day-to-day, they create, build, supervise, operate, construct, and maintain projects in those areas. As structures and systems age, civil engineers conduct repairs and upgrades to keep life moving.

About Working in Columbus, Ohio
Columbus is the six-degrees-of-separation state. Or, make that 600 miles. Nearly half the residents of the U.S. live within a 600-mile radius of Columbus. A little closer to home, some famous "Columbusites" include Food Network star Guy Fieri, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, golfer Jack Nicklaus, and authors R.L. Stine and James Thurber. But the personality with one of the best Columbus jobs has to be Brutus, the mascot of The Ohio State Buckeyes. And, yes, the university is the only one in the U.S. that has the word "The" in its official name. It also has the only football team that plays in a shoe—a horseshoe-shaped stadium, that is.
Columbus is an affordable place to live, with a lower-than-average cost of living. You can find Columbus jobs in unique neighborhoods like German Village, which has brick roads and charming, restored houses from the mid-1800s. You can also check out Short North, an arts district with galleries and boutiques, and Easton, an entertainment and retail mecca with more than 300 shops and restaurants. Just outside of Columbus, you can find jobs in popular suburbs that include Dublin, Grove City, and Westerville.
