Civil engineers need to have an eye for even the smallest of details. Why? Just imagine how important a couple of bolts and screws are in a bridge. Unsure? Well, a civil engineer knows that every single bolt and screw counts, and can never be overlooked.
Say you see a glass which is filled until the halfway point. What would you say? The glass is half full? The glass is half empty? A civil engineer would opt for option C) The Glass is half the size it needs to be.

When you and your friends plan a get together, you’re the one picking the venue, while everyone just replies with ‘anywhere’. On top of that, you keep calling everyone on the day to make sure everyone is in line to be on time. You’re as comfortable handling and supervising employees with respect and efficiency, as you are company supervisors and investors. It might seem like the toughest tight rope walk you’ve ever heard of, but for you? All in a day’s work.
It could be said broadly that the role of civil engineers is to apply Engineering principles to develop solutions within the built environment. More often than not, this requires a certain level of creativity. Engineers need to be able to innovate and improve on solutions. From finding ways to reduce CO2 emissions or making a trampoline bridge, creativity is key.
