Kansas City is one of the premier centers of
engineering design in the country. Numerous civil infrastructure design
and construction firms with national and international reputation are
headquartered in Kansas City. This offers a unique opportunity to our
students, many of whom participate actively as interns or as employees
with these firms during the course of their study, thereby, getting a
balanced blend of course work and practical experience.
Job opportunities abound for engineering majors.
In terms of starting salaries and the number of job offers, engineering
graduates compare favorably with all other graduates. In addition, the
civil engineering curriculum at UMKC equips the graduate with the
analytic decision-making skills necessary to pursue diverse technical,
managerial and entrepreneurial career opportunities.
