Civil engineering jobs Durban

What is civil engineering?

Civil engineering has been around longer than any other branch of engineering. Much of what characterizes contemporary civilisation can be found in the constructed landscape.

Structural engineering is a fundamental part of civil engineering, and its most visible products—buildings and bridges—are generally the first things that come to mind when people think of engineering.

Transportation engineers are a subset of civil engineers who are responsible for the planning and construction of transportation infrastructure such highways, railways, subways, and airports.

These few instances show that civil engineers do far more than just plan and create structures like buildings and bridges.

They work in the aerospace business, designing space stations and airplanes; in the automotive industry, enhancing the crashworthiness of bumpers and doors; in the ship construction industry; in the power industry; and in many other fields where the design of built facilities is required.

And as construction managers, they're in charge of both the planning and execution of these projects.

Whether it's a finished bridge, high-rise building, metro station, or hydroelectric dam, civil engineers get to see the tangible fruits of their labour every day, which makes it one of the most exciting and satisfying professions.
