Infrastructure makes our daily lives possible in the manner to which we’ve grown accustomed and we don’t give it much thought. It’s only when there’s a problem, something stops working, we outgrow current capabilities, or repairs are required that people take notice of the water treatment facilities, sewer lines, roads, utility grids, bridges, and railways that underwrite our daily lives.
Working as a civil engineer, you have the choice to work within a wide range of sectors. These can include; Rail, Highways and Drainage, and Utility network/systems. You will have the opportunity to explore your creativity and develop concepts, ideas and designs into reality.
Civil engineering is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding professions as after all the hard work and dedication you put into the project, you get to see real physical results that will impact future generations to come.
