Civil Engineering for a Brighter Future

It is important to ensure that any professional from the civil engineering field is properly qualified and that they are registered with the South African Institution of Civil Engineering. Such an engineer must live up to a code of ethics and conduct and deliver services that meet the highest standards.
Considering that most engineers are used in the planning and building of our cities and are there to ensure that all integral systems within our communities are functioning optimally, this becomes all the more important. An engineer is responsible for the physical integrity of structures as well as ensuring that the materials that are used meet the industry standards.
Civil engineering is a multi-disciplinary study with a range of specialities encompassing structural engineering and environmental engineering, amongst others. An electrical engineer is there to ensure that there is enough electricity to meet the demands of a certain area. This means that he or she must take into account a variety of variables such as the delivery system and a future increase in demand due to population growth.
Electrical, water and other delivery systems can deteriorate over time and need constant maintenance and upgrading. Civil engineers are constantly developing new technology and new ways in which to improve systems that are already in place so that they stay up to date and continue to function.
There is always a great need for more civil engineers who are well qualified and have the necessary experience in the industry to ply their trade. This makes it a viable field for any person who is skilled in mathematics and science to become involved in.
The various disciplines of engineering are constantly developing and changing to ensure that our communities run in the most efficient way possible and have access to the latest engineering solutions, for instance in waste water treatment.
