Job Description for Senior Civil Engineer

A senior civil engineer handles the design, construction, and maintenance of public structures such as dams, bridges, buildings, and roads. It’s their job to ensure that each structure is able to withstand the wear and tear of constant use. Senior civil engineers work primarily in an office setting, although they typically perform on-site inspections to monitor projects' progress and look at potential problems. A senior civil engineer often oversees a team of other engineers and is expected to delegate to, mentor, train, and supervise subordinates. The average work week for a senior civil engineer typically is around 40 to 50 hours; however, unscheduled problems and important deadlines may require the senior civil engineer to have to work nights and weekends.
