Who is an Infrastructure Engineer?
 

An infrastructure engineer is a civil engineer that works on developing, maintaining and improving municipal systems that are fundamental to keeping society running smoothly.
As an infrastructure engineer (also known as a "Municipal Engineer"), you would be responsible for maintaining and updating the infrastructure systems of a municipality or region. 
 
You would be frequently challenged by situations where maintenance on these systems has been minimal for decades.
 
It would be up to you to devise ways to update these systems, and ensure that they conform with modern day safety and functionality standards.

The basic educational requirement for working as an infrastructure engineer is a four-year bachelor's degree in civil engineering from an accredited school. Some employers however, may require that you have a master’s in civil engineer, with a major in a field related to their specialized area of operations, if applicable.
 
For example, a municipal government looking to implement a public transportation plan may prefer to hire a candidate with a master’s degree in civil engineering, with a major in transportation planning.
