Being an engineer officer in the Commissioned Corps means you're on the front lines of public health: designing and constructing water and sewerage systems for underserved populations, responding to natural disasters and other emergencies, conducting workplace safety research, managing environmental health risks, overseeing the construction of health care and research complexes, and designing healthy buildings. You can choose from a wide variety of specializations, including chemical, electrical, mechanical, civil, biomedical, computer, and environmental engineering disciplines. The Corps offers new challenges every day, the opportunity to serve your country, and the satisfaction of making a real difference. And you'll enjoy excellent benefits and work/life balance.

“The variety of technical and managerial opportunities for Commissioned Corps engineers in the Public Health Service is amazing. Engineers bring much needed technical and problem-solving skills to address public health issues at all levels. Most Corps engineers start at the field or laboratory level and eventually move into project and program management over a career. Whether we're revitalizing the infrastructure in a Native-American community or making a mammography facility safe for patients, we know that our engineering skills are protecting and advancing the Nation's health every day.”

Chief Engineer Officer,
U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps
