A Day in the Life of a Civil and Structural Engineer

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings.  Structural engineering is a field of engineering dealing with the analysis and design of structures that support or resist loads. Structural engineering is usually considered a specialty within civil engineering, but it can also be studied in its own right. (Source: Wikipedia)

Civil and Structural Engineers (often called as C&S Engineers) of Singapore are highly sought after in developing countries like India, China and Indonesia because of the technical expertise they possess.

Some may say that the construction industry is a “sunset” industry. But watch the below video to know more from an industry expert, about how this industry has flourished over the years and the important role C&E engineers play.
