Civil engineers create, improve and protect the environment in which we live. They plan, design and oversee construction and maintenance of building structures and facilities, such as roads, railways, airports, bridges, harbours, dams, irrigation projects, power plants, water and and sewerage systems.

Perform engineering duties in planning, designing, and overseeing construction and maintenance of building structures, and facilities, such as roads, railroads, airports, bridges, harbors, channels, dams, irrigation projects, pipelines, power plants, water and sewage systems, and waste disposal units.

Within civil engineering, consulting engineers are the designers whereas contracting engineers turn their plans into reality.

Consulting civil engineers provide a wide range of services to clients. During the early stages of a career, work will involve taking responsibility for minor projects, but the size of the projects may increase as you gain experience. Tasks often include:

  • undertaking technical and feasibility studies and site investigations;
  • developing detailed designs;
  • assessing the potential risks of specific projects, as well as undertaking risk management in specialist roles;
  • supervising tendering procedures and putting together proposals;
  • managing, supervising and visiting contractors on site and advising on civil engineering issues;
  • overseeing the work of junior staff or mentoring civil engineers throughout the chartership process;
  • communicating and liaising effectively with colleagues and architects, subcontractors, contracting civil engineers, consultants, co-workers and clients;
  • thinking both creatively and logically to resolve design and development problems;
  • managing budgets and other project resources;
  • managing change, as the client may change their mind about the design, and ensuring relevant parties are notified of changes in the project;
  • leading teams of other engineers, perhaps from other organisations or firms;
  • compiling, checking and approving reports;
  • reviewing and approving project drawings;
  • using computer-aided design (CAD) packages for designing projects;
  • undertaking complex and repetitive calculations;
  • scheduling material and equipment purchases and delivery;
  • attending public meetings to discuss projects, especially in a senior role;
  • adopting all relevant requirements around issues such as building permits, environmental regulations, sanitary design, good manufacturing practices and safety on all work assignments;
  • ensuring that a project runs smoothly and that the structure is completed on time and within budget;
  • correcting any project deficiencies that affect production, quality and safety requirements before final evaluation and project reviews.
