Of course, huge demands yield better pay packages for engineers engaged in this field. According to Payscale, a civil engineer in Dubai earns an average salary of AED 101,819 annually. Best part is that the scope of civil engineering is not limited to work alone but extends to study opportunities for students across the globe.
