INFOGRAPHIC: Engineering for the Developing World
Staff posted on April 22, 2017 |
Population growth in developing countries to create unprecedented demand for civil engineering.

Projections from the United Nations (UN) show that the world’s population will reach 9.7 billion by 2050. Although birth rates in developing countries are decreasing, they will still account for the majority of global population growth.

As many of these countries lack the infrastructure necessary to cope with rapid population growth, the demand for civil engineers with expertise in transportation, water, waste disposal and construction will likely see a concordant increase.

This infographic, created by Norwich University’s Online Master in Civil Engineering program, explores the contributions civil engineers can make in the developing world.
