Madison 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 Madison, Wisconsin

Madison is one of two major U.S. cities that sit on an isthmus—a narrow strip of land connecting two large areas, with water on either side. Besides "isthmus," other words people use when they're describing Madison are "beer" and "cheese." In fact, Madison is home to a number of local breweries, which are celebrated every spring during Craft Beer Week. And one of the University of Wisconsin's most unique courses of study prepares students for Madison jobs in cheesemaking through its Center for Dairy Research. Each January, Madison's two favorite food groups team up at the annual Beer & Cheese Festival.

If beer and cheese are not your cup of tea, you can enjoy Madison's five lakes—Mendota, Monona, Wingra, Waubesa, and Kegonsa and 12 public beaches. Madison ranks among the safest places to live in the U.S. with an average cost of living—meaning that the salary from a job in Madison will go pretty far. And outside the city limits, you can also find jobs in nearby cities, including Waukesha, Milwaukee, and Kenosha.
