Basic Job Description:

Perform engineering duties in planning, designing, and


overseeing construction and maintenance of building
structures, and facilities, such as roads, railroads, airports,
bridges, harbors, channels, dams, irrigation projects, pipelines,
power plants, water and sewage systems, and waste disposal
units. Includes architectural, structural, traffic, ocean, and
geo-technical engineers.

Job Duties and Tasks for: "Civil Engineer"


 Analyze survey reports, maps, drawings, blueprints, aerial
photography, and other topographical or geologic data to
plan projects.
 Plan and design transportation or hydraulic systems and
structures, following construction and government
standards, using design software and drawing tools.
 Compute load and grade requirements, water flow rates,
and material stress factors to determine design
specifications.
 Inspect project sites to monitor progress and ensure
conformance to design specifications and safety or
sanitation standards.
 Direct construction, operations, and maintenance
activities at project site.
 Direct or participate in surveying to lay out installations
and establish reference points, grades, and elevations to
guide construction.
 Estimate quantities and cost of materials, equipment, or
labor to determine project feasibility.
 Prepare or present public reports, such as bid proposals,
deeds, environmental impact statements, and property
and right-of-way descriptions.
 Test soils and materials to determine the adequacy and
strength of foundations, concrete, asphalt, or steel.
 Provide technical advice regarding design, construction,
or program modifications and structural repairs to
industrial and managerial personnel.

Many civil engineers hold supervisory or administrative positions ranging from


supervisor of a construction site to city engineer. Others work in design,
construction, research, and teaching. Civil engineers work with others on
projects and may be assisted by civil engineering technicians.
The federal government employs civil engineers to do many of the same things
done in private industry, except that the federally employed civil engineers may
also inspect projects to be sure that they comply with regulations.
Good analytical skills are a must for any civil engineer. Civil engineers have to
read and interpret many complex charts, diagrams, maps and reports. By having
superior analytical skills, one who fills this job role will find that they can complete
their daily job duties in an effective and efficient manner. One who does not have
good analytical skills may have a hard time in the role of a civil engineer.

Above average communication skills are also a good thing for civil engineers to
possess. Civil engineers need to correspond with a wide array of individuals
throughout their profession. They will have to deal with everyone from
construction workers to CEOs of large corporations. Therefore, it is imperative
that a civil engineer possesses above average communication skills as this will
allow them to communicate effectively with individuals involved in the job.
Civil engineers have a very important role in today’s society. They are the people
behind the scenes of construction jobs which result in important buildings and
structures throughout one’s city or hometown. They ensure not only that the
buildings are constructed in a proper fashion but an expedient one as well.
Should problems arise, they are the ones who step in to take control and come
up with possible solutions.
