Civil engineering technicians work in a support role with civil engineers. They assist them with planning and designing various projects such as sewers, bridges and tunnels. The first task of a civil engineering technician is to perform research activities on a proposed project to figure out its feasibility and demands.
Civil engineering technicians are also responsible for managing schedules and at all stages of a project. They are highly skilled and trained individuals who are also responsible for figuring out possible malfunctions and to ensure conformity to design.
