Job Description for Civil Engineering Technician
Civil Engineering Technicians assist with drafting, design, and surveying projects. It's possible to work directly on the project site, in the office perfecting designs, or at both locations depending on the day. A lot of the time they will use computer graphics and design software (such as AutoCAD Civil 3D, or Earthworks) to generate plots of ground surfaces, pipe and storm sewer systems, and grading plans. The ideal candidate will assist in the development of all drawings and specifications required to complete a project and, if so assigned, with client representatives. The technician must have strong communication skills, as they will often be required to communicate with the other project contractors about inspections and schedules. Additionally, they will be in charge of documenting construction agreements and project progress, as well as reporting any problems or changes in plans that will arise during the project's duration. Additionally, the technician will be required to identify the materials required and associated costs for their assigned projects.
