Human resources are the most precious asset of society and any civil engineering and construction firms. Experience shows that successful construction companies always focus on recruitment and human resources training. Thus, ranking main factors in measuring the performance of construction engineers is one of the most critical determinations in the success of civil engineering and construction projects. However, traditional methods of evaluating key factors performance of construction engineers are usually based on subjective opinions, resulting in irrational and inappropriate outcomes. Therefore, this paper presents a fuzzy model for ranking critical factors in measuring the performance of construction engineers. The results show that there are five essential factors in measuring the performance of construction engineers in Vietnam: (1) Ability to perform work in accordance with project procedures and accept overtime work; (2) Ability to improve knowledge and skills; and (3) Ability to meet and make a decision with the consensus of a project team; and (4) Ability to communicate exchange and persuade and build good relationships with project members; (5) Planning and scheduling ability.
