Civil Engineering Technicians use their
technical skills to help build and maintain our infrastructure:
highways, dams, bridges, culverts, airports, etc. They use their skills
in the area of design, surveying, material testing, inspection and
project management to act as the "eyes and ears" for the engineer.
Technicians are not the people who physically build the roads (the
laborers), they're the people on site making sure it gets done properly,
and they are the people behind the scenes who assist in the design
process. They are critical to ensuring that our highway projects get
built right the first time, and that they last for many years to come.
