Engineering Technology in Civil Engineering *NEW

Bachelor: (bachelor degree)

The graduate at this level functions as a technologist who displays competence as a member of the engineering team in the execution of technical tasks. The course will develop the application of knowledge, independent thinking and communication skills, as well as proficiency in the identification and solution of complex civil engineering problems. The BEng Tech in Civil Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA). Graduates will comply with the academic requirements for registration as Professional Technologists.

Purpose and Rationale of the Qualification
A learner achieving this qualification will be competent to apply theoretical knowledge, practical experience and skills in civil engineering as a civil engineering technologist, who is part of the engineering team, by applying current and proven techniques to engineering activity, within standards and codes and working independently and responsibly.

Career Opportunities
Graduates are employed by civil engineering contractors, consulting engineers, and government departments at local, provincial, or national level. Broadly speaking civil engineering is divided into two basic activities: planning and design on the one hand, and construction and maintenance on the other. The work will vary considerably according to the field of employment, but in both fields the technician will provide in-depth support, sometimes of a highly specialised nature, to the engineering team. Construction and maintenance projects include bridges, dams, railways, roads, harbours, sewers, pipelines, and other structures. In the planning and design field, the graduate will be engaged in survey, design, costing, estimating, drafting, traffic studies, materials investigation, and testing.
