Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Civil Drafting & Civil Engineering CAD/CADD field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Civil Drafting & Civil Engineering CAD/CADD majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Civil Drafting & Civil Engineering CAD/CADD majors need more than the average amount of Programming, Operations Analysis, Quality Control Analysis, Mathematics, Systems Analysis, Critical Thinking, Technology Design, Systems Evaluation, Reading Comprehension, Learning Strategies, Active Listening, Equipment Selection, Coordination, Time Management, Management of Personnel Resources, Monitoring, Complex Problem Solving, Operation Monitoring, Instructing, Judgment and Decision Making, Active Learning, Writing, Social Perceptiveness, Speaking, Persuasion, Management of Material Resources, Service Orientation, Science, Negotiation, Management of Financial Resources, Troubleshooting, Operation and Control, Installation, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing.
These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Civil Drafting & Civil Engineering CAD/CADD majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Programming is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Critical Thinking, Active Listening, Mathematics, Speaking, Writing, Judgment and Decision Making, Complex Problem Solving, Monitoring, Systems Analysis, Active Learning, Time Management, Coordination, Social Perceptiveness, Operations Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Learning Strategies, Instructing, Quality Control Analysis, Persuasion, Management of Personnel Resources, Service Orientation, Negotiation, Operation Monitoring, Science, Programming, Management of Material Resources, Management of Financial Resources, Technology Design, Troubleshooting, Operation and Control, Equipment Selection, Installation, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
