İnşaat Mühendisi Mesleğinin İngilizce Tanıtımı (Civil Engineer)
What is a Civil Engineer?
A civil engineer designs and oversees the construction of public works, such as roads, bridges, dams, tunnels, buildings, airports, water and sewage systems, and other large infrastructure projects.
Buildings and bridges are often the first structures to come to mind, because they are the most obvious engineering creations. But civil engineers are also responsible for less visible creations and contributions. Every time we open a water faucet, we expect water to come out, without thinking that civil engineers made it possible, in many cases by designing systems that transport water to cities from mountain sources that are sometimes hundreds of miles away.
Civil engineers design, construct and maintain the buildings, bridges, dams, roads and other types of infrastructure that make up our cities and towns. Civil engineers visit building sites and assess proposed plans to determine the environmental impact of large scale projects, and whether the building materials will be sufficient to create a safe and stable structure.
Knowledge, Skills and Attributes
- good planning and organisation skills
- excellent problem-solving skills
- good communication skills
- to be willing to adhere to strict safety regulations
- to be able to work independently and as part of a team.
Civil engineers work in offices and on building sites. When they are on buildings sites, they may experience all types of weather conditions. They work on projects, from building new skyscrapers, to designing systems to transport and store water at remote minesites in regional areas. Civil engineers generally work regular office hours, however, they may be required to work evenings and weekends to meet deadlines. Some civil engineers also work on call, in case of emergencies, such as a burst water or gas pipe.
Tools and Technologies
Civil engineers cross-check building plans against a range of reference materials to ensure that a finished structure will be strong enough and able to withstand dangerous weather conditions. They must also be familiar with surveying equipment, such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), so that they can gather information about a particular site in case special precautions need to be taken during construction. When working on a building site they will also be required to wear appropriate safety equipment including hard hats and high-visibility clothing.
