Transcript: Job Description A civil engineer is someone who designs and supervises large construction projects, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment. Hours and environment You'll work between 35 and 40 hours a week, Monday to Friday. Your time will be split between the office and working on site. Sitework would be in all weathers and may involve extensive travel, sometimes overseas, depending on the contract. Skills and interests To be a civil-engineer technician, you'll need: Excellent maths, science, and IT skills The ability to explain design ideas and plans clearly The ability to analyse large amounts of data and assess solutions Confident decision-making ability Excellent communication skills Project management skills The ability to work within budgets and to deadlines Good teamworking skills A comprehensive knowledge of relevant legal regulations. Entry To become a civil engineer you normally need a three-year Bachelor of Engineering degree (BEng) or four-year Masters degree (MEng) in civil engineering. These qualifications are important if you want to gain incorporated or chartered engineer status later in your career. You could take other engineering-related subjects but it may take you longer to fully qualify. Annual income Income for new graduate engineers is between $25,152 and $59,666 a year. Experienced engineers earn between $70,959 and $97,737 Chartered engineers can earn around $101,219 year. Career goals Have the ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to any situation. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams Design a system, component, or process in more than one civil engineering context Reflection I chose civil engineering as my career choice because I have always been fascinated with civil related projects. I have always been a keen observer of bridges, railroads and buildings. To me there was something dignified about each one of these projects, that at one point they were somebody's idea in their mind.
