What is a Civil Technologist?

Civil technologists are the professionals who design and maintain our infrastructure. They work for government agencies, utility companies and private construction firms. Civil technologists are responsible for developing and implementing plans for public projects like water treatment facilities, sewage treatment plants, airports and highways. They also work on environmental projects like cleaning up polluted land or reducing air pollution.

Civil technologists are a crucial element of the construction industry. They work on projects from the beginning to the end, from planning to construction and maintenance. Civil engineers concentrate on planning and design, while civil technologists focus more on the practical aspects of building and maintenance.

The benefits of becoming a civil technologist include:

  • Career security - because civil engineers are always needed in our society, there will always be jobs available for those who want them
  • The opportunity to work on exciting projects - civil engineers get to see their designs come to life every day, which can be very satisfying
  • Working with other professionals - since civil engineers must collaborate with other professionals such as architects or planners, they need good communication skills so they can effectively communicate their ideas with others
