A lot among us are fascinated by the world of buildings that surround us. From tiny rooms to gigantic wonders of the world are all miracles of great civil engineering, some of which like the Pyramids of Egypt dates back to some 4500 years ago.
Civil Engineering in simple terms can be defined as the branch of engineering that deals with the designing, construction, and management of the natural as well as the man-made environment that includes roads, dams, residences, buildings, airports, canals, etc.
Civil Engineering is a popular degree, and it attracts a lot of companies that provides civil engineers with a lot of job opportunities. Some of the jobs that a Civil Engineer can get are discussed below:
Design Engineer: The first step towards any construction-related purpose is chalking out its initial layout/design. The Design Engineer combines technical knowledge, mathematical knowledge, and the designing skills to develop innovative solutions to eliminate any problems by providing unique solutions to a wide range of industries and sectors like construction and the building environment, materials, software, components, vehicles as well as products.
The Design Engineer takes part in the initial designing of a building/project and also takes part in its development and management.
Building Control Surveyor: The work of a Building Control Surveyor involves managing all the construction-related processes. The building control surveyor is required to keep all the details in mind while handling the construction process. The building control surveyor is responsible for maintaining all the rules and legislation when different types of buildings are constructed, altered, converted, etc. They provide unique solutions to errors which arise when the building fails to meet the building regulation requirements. They approve grants required for construction work to commence as well as inspect buildings for public health, fire safety, energy conservation.
CAD Technician: The CAD technicians combine their engineering, mathematical, IT knowledge as well as their work skills to chalk out the building designs, designs of machinery and their parts, etc. A CAD Technician (also known as draughtsperson) performs all the draughting that is creating accurate and detailed technical drawings and layouts in both 2D, as well as 3D formats which, are required at all the stages of construction.
Structural Engineers: The work of structural engineers involves designing buildings that are resistant to all kinds of stresses caused due to environmental impact or human impact. They run tests on the construction materials like beam/lintel, concrete, steel, etc to remove any possible errors.
