One of the most challenging and exciting careers that you can choose is the field of Army Engineering. The United States Army Corps of Engineers is a group that provides engineering and building support on the battlefield, and here at home in the United States, too.
Army Engineers work to move men and equipment across rivers, to construct bridges and roads, to engineer and build dams, water projects, and a wide variety of engineering and building projects. If it?s a piece of infrastructure, a building or a project you can bet that somewhere, sometime the United States Army has worked to build it.
Serving in the Army Corps of Engineers is not for lightweights. It?s a challenging and at times difficult job, but one that has many rewards. You may work to build and shape terrain, or operate heavy machinery, or even place precision explosives for demolition.
This is a job that until the last 20 years was often closed to women, but now is wide open for both men and women to participate and serve in. It provides real world training that can be utilized to serve on the Combat Field, and also in projects in the United States.
Working as an Army combat engineer will give you training for many different types of civilian construction employment. So if you think you have what it takes, take some time to investigate what the Army has to offer in its Engineering Corps.
