How Civil Engineers Improve Our Communities
Engineers Week advocates for a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers. For Engineers Week this year, we wanted to show how civil engineers make a difference in many ways.
How Civil Engineers Improve Our Communities:
- Civil engineers design roads and bridges, planning infrastructure that connects communities, drives economic growth and improves road conditions.
- Civil engineers plan sites for development, working with members of the community, developers, architects and more to create the best possible outcome for projects.
- Civil engineers provide studies and plans for storm water and wastewater infrastructure, improving systems that we use every day.
For Engineers Week, we talked with Aaron Moore, Engineer in Training in our Kansas City office, about his job as a civil engineer. Aaron describes his job and interests, and gives advice for students studying civil engineering or about to enter the workforce.
As a young engineer, I’m finding out that lifelong learning is important and there’s always things that you can do to improve as an engineer.”

We also highlighted our Professional Engineers, who design for the future, reimagining the possible to improve our communities. Check out the video with our Professional Engineers below.
From infrastructure to technology to science, engineers have a major impact on our everyday lives. At Kaw Valley Engineering, we’re thankful to have a team of civil engineers that make a difference in their communities in many ways, and we loved putting a spotlight on our engineers for EWeek 2022.
We’ve had a great time celebrating Engineers Week 2022, and we have open engineering positions in multiple offices. To view those positions or apply, please visit our Careers page.
