12 Highest Paying Countries for Civil Engineers

The 12 highest paying countries for civil engineers have embraced the relatively new field and its importance in the economy of a country. While the work carried out by civil engineers is one of the most ancient professions, having to do with construction, its recognition as a separate field from other forms of engineers is still relatively new.

Civil engineers do not practice engineering broadly; civil engineering is a specialized form of engineering which generally pertains to geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, environmental engineering and hydraulic engineering as well. However, that is not to say that civil engineers can only work in these fields. Some civil engineers, generally those who work with the government, can work across multiple fields.
