engineering careers  New Engineering Resources – An introduction to Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is the cornerstone of what most people think of when they think ‘Engineer’ but what is it and how does it compare to other fields.

In the latest on of our series exploring different engineering career paths we take a deep dive into what Civil Engineering is its’ different sub-disciplines.

For now we want to answer a basic question – what exactly is a civil engineer? While the question might sound simple a civil engineer can have a range of different specialities and each of these specialities can shape our world in different ways.

Civil Engineers shape the built environment, and use their creativity to improve the world we live in for a sustainable future.

Every building, road, bridge, harbour, airport or energy facility will have relied on the creativity, imagination and skills of Civil Engineers. However, in the modern world these existing projects have aged and civil engineers are now also needed to manage construction projects to rebuild, repair, and upgrade bridges, roads, levees, dams, airports, buildings, and structures of all types, making it an in-demand and highly lucrative field. Today Civil engineers design, construct, maintain, and operate infrastructures, while simultaneously safeguarding public and environmental health and upgrading neglected structures and systems…

Our series will explore Engineering degrees, careers and fields.
